Perfect for an unstoppable toddler

We absolutely love these shoes so far! The toes and tread stand up to our busy little man. After everyday wear and a few hikes they still look brand new. Already bought the next size because we love our Merrells!

Poor quality

I've put it through the wringer

These fit great and my toddler loves them. I was very disappointed with the quality however as I expected them to be durable with this brand. We have had them for three months and the Velcro strap has already peeled off and the toe seam is separating from the sole. Not well made.

These are great toddler shoes! My son loves them and he is a wild animal so I appreciate how sturdy they are.

My two year old’s favorite shoes!

Such a roomy toe box for little ones toes to spread out! Great fit. True to size. Super well made. Definitely recommend.

Great for new walkers

My 13 month old is a new walker and these have been great for varied terrain, protecting her little feet, plus giving her ankle support and confidence in walking. Will probably continue to buy as she grows.

Great but not totally waterproof

Ought these for my 3.5 year old. I’m not sure how waterproof they are. We walked through a wet grassy field and his shoes were wet inside. That may have been going in through the top. Overall they seem sturdy, flexible wider soles and best of all he can get the shoes on by himself.

Velcro failed

My grandkids had 4 pairs of these. They wore them constantly but the velcro stopped sticking and that was annoying to have the top wide open.

Good shoes, not water resistant

There are great shoes and my child loves them. But they are nothing close the water resistant. Walking through some wet grass makes his socks soaked.

Perfect for my 2 littles

Bought 2 pairs for 3.5 and 1.5 year old. They wore them all over Yellowstone and my 3.5 year old did over 2 mile hike in them with no complaints. I like that my kids can mostly out then on by themselves. So far holding up good. My daughter liked the pink and purple colors!

Good, not sure about waterproofing

My 4.5 year old son likes these and has worn them several times in the month we've had them. I can't speak to the waterproof aspect (it's been dry) but these are holding up well as outdoor shoes at his very active camp
