These shoes are great. My 8 year old likes to wear them all the time. And I love how easy they are to clean when they get muddy. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the color. I was hoping for more of a lemon yellow, which is how it looks on my screen, but it turned out to be more of a yellow-green. In the end my 8 year old didn't care, so I didn't stress over it.
