Great easy shoe
I love these for my little girls. They are very versatile... socks, no socks, wet, dry, easy to take on and off themselves. Camping, swimming, tumbling, or whatever.
Plus they are super cute.
LOVE these for my daughters!

We picked these up for our two daughters (5 &4) for casual hiking and for school, and they've quickly become their, and my favorite shoes.
Right off the bat they were super comfortable and the fit was perfect for their small feet (average width). The part though that made them superior to other shoes we've purchased is the sole and shoe material. The rubber of the sole had great grip and the material on the upper of the shoe washed easily when it got dirty.
Outside of city adventures, my girls have taken these canyoneering, hiking in the mountains, and used them paddle-boarding on the lake (they didn't want their feet to get cold). For each of these, the shoes were perfect. I was a bit suspicious the first time using them for canyoneering as grip to the sandstone is so important. That said, on their first rappel, they didn't slip at all, and throughout the day climbing on sandstone, they held up perfectly. So, to say the least, the grip and wear on the shoe itself exceeded my expectations.
Overall, I couldn't be more stoked on their Plae's, and the girls love how they look and feel (now they say they need another pair just for school :-)
