My son, typical of little boys, didn't know how to tell me why his feet were hurting him. There was definitely enough length, but when we compared them to his Oakridge (which don't seem to be around anymore) they are waaaaay more narrow. Beware. Unfortunately, we have already been on several grumpy hikes, and time has passed so we haven't tried to return. Construction seems good. It would be nice to have width a consideration when it comes to kids shoes too. If my son is anything like me.. he will need clown size width.
