I am really happy with these shoes! I couldn't find "wide" toddler shoes at any of the children's stores, department stores, or shoe stores in my area, so I decided to try ordering these. I was a little worried about not being able to try them on first, so I used the size guide at Stride Rite's website. I ordered a half size larger than the size his foot measured and they fit perfectly! I wish they weren't quite so pricey, but they seem to be of good quality. We've had them about a month. He wears them everyday and they are holding up very well. I would give them 5 stars if they were just a little bit less expensive.
