Daughter loves shoe - son says they're okay
Shoe is great for school and gym approved. Very comfortable and since we live in a warm climate, okay for winter school days. Would not recommend for outside play on cold, wet days. Canvas is durable but not quite as thick as I would have liked. My son has a pair in the navy/red and he has a hard time getting them on. The canvas wants to stay under his heel and he struggles to get them up over the heel. My daughter (9) is two years older, and has not problem. This is the only reason I did not rate 5 stars.
