I bought these for my 7-year-old son because they looked like a mini version of my husband's shoes and I thought he would like them because of that. I did not anticipate how much he would LOVE them. They are his go-to shoe for EVERYTHING. Skateboard camp. Hiking in Colorado. Mountain biking. And they are nice enough to dress up with khakis. I feel like I just need to go ahead and buy every size so he's covered until he grows out of kids shoes.
