I bought a pair of these for each of my boys, age range 18 months-5 years old. I love that my older two could put the shoes on by themselves! The boys loved playing, jumping, running, and generally being active in them. They were perfect winter shoes for places the snow wasn't deep. I appreciated having a good pair of boots to keep my kids warm/dry while we were running errands or walking to & from the bus stop. I'd definitely recommend these shoes.
