I bought these for my twin girls for school. Great shoes, but they don't make half sizes- which is a real bummer because size 13 "just fits" with very little room to grow and (the next size up)-size "1 youth" is HUGE. Everything else is awesome. With PE and physical activities at school I think these shoes are excellent quality, great because they look cute and stylish and are also big on functionality. There's also a cushioned insole which makes them comfy. You're lucky if your kiddo can wear the "full sizes". Can't comment yet about long term quality, we've only had them two weeks. So far so good. I give these babies 4 stars only because of no half sizes- otherwise they are a 5. P.S. These shoes do run about a 1/2 size large in length.

My daughter has worn Keen since she was 2. She is now 4.5. I bought these 2 sizes larger than she wears now, for next year (size 12). She wears a 10 now but will probably wear an 11 by the end of the year. These look to be comfortable, every day sneakers. She'll get a lot of use out of them. We got the lilac and the color is as pictured. She likes them.

My daughter is a serious tomboy - running, jumping, climbing all day long. She blows through most shoes... wears them out in record time. But these have been amazingly durable. She loves them, too, because they are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Plus, they are pink! So rare to find a really well-built, durable shoe that is also cute.

I bought two pairs each for my girls (ages 7 and 3), one a size up so they have another pair when they grow out of the first. These are very cute and versatile. They look great with jeans, shorts, even casual skirts and dresses. My girls say they are very comfortable and have never complained about fit or feel. They wear them daily and so far, after about five months of heavy use by my tomboys, they have held up very well. My only issue, and it is a small one, is that the leather stains pretty easily. I have been able to clean them up with a little soap and water for the most part, but they do retain some stains. I imagine this is from the soft finish on the leather. When we break out the new pairs, I plan on spraying them with some Scotch stain gaurd, which I think will take care of the problem. Be aware that they seem to run about a a 1/2 size large.

Cute but really heavy and I'm not sure I'll be able to get my toddler in them for summer b/c they're so huge. Hopefully they'll fit in Fall. Also I think that while running b/c they're so low cut and heavy, that they may just slip right off. They're almost as bad as clogs.
