My daughter loves these shoes, they really are super cute. The reason I rated the durability lower and gave these a 3 star rating is not for the structure of the shoe, but for the design elements. The band that runs around the bottom of the shoe with the Barbie decals, looks to be just a tape and after just 2 weeks of wearing the shoes the band has pealed off a lot. Also the glitter that is on the shoe is rubbing off on the toe area. I will have to try taking the Barbie decal tape off soon so that the shoe still looks nice.
