I purchased these shoes for my 7 year old son to wear to school. He likes the style and says that they are comfortable. However, after 3 1/2 months of wearing them, the shoes are already falling apart. The rubber bottom on one shoe has a hole, the seams around the ankles on both shoes have come apart, and both shoelaces broke. I was expecting a durable shoe based on reviews but have found the opposite to be true. Very disappointed.
