My son was able to wear these maybe twice before the back broke down and did some funky "fall over thing". He physically couldn't push his foot into the heel where it was supposed to be so his heel is too far up and he walks on the actual side of the boot not the bottom. I was very disappointed because we have owned several other pairs of John Deere boots and they fit just fine. I saw the other day another boy wearing these same boots and his was doing the same thing. I think the "Growing Like a Weed" technology needs to be ditched by this company because even when we pulled out the insole there was nowhere for my son's heel...strangest boots I've ever seen. Don't buy these!

My son wears a 5, pushing 5-1/2. He said the boots fit well when they arrived, but he took one horseback riding lesson in them and they rubbed on his heels in back (though he was wearing thick socks). Maybe these aren't designed to be appropriate for riding (keeping the heel down in the stirrup) but that strikes me as odd for "cowboy boots". We'll see how he does just walking around in them.
