The shoes last on and on and on!! I think they might last forever!! My grandson is the ROUGHEST kid on shoes, but they have lasted a whole school year of Kindergarten and STILL look great and like new! WARNING: They run really, REALLY small!!! At LEAST one size...maybe 2! He now NOW can wear a 13 in his Keen sandals, but he just outgrew his size 1 in this shoe!! Plan accordingly when you buy!!
