My little one wore them for the fist time during a not-so-cold day and her feet were so warm afterwards, they were literally steaming. You'll need a bit of force to get them on for the first couple of times, however she loves how they look and feel, a perfect fit

After wearing these boots for an entire winter season, there are two noticeable issues:
My daughter also fell in love with the grey boots that matched her coat. But within a few weeks my active 5 year old had scuffed many spots. Being leather, not pleather- I simply went to polish them. Only to realize that there is no GREY polish color. We tried neutral, but as the actual color was scrapped of the poorly dyed leather, it only helped a tad. The scuffs made these otherwise lovely boots look old and worn. If we had ordered black, this would have not been an issue.
2. Ankle Zipper Pressure.
After several months, my daughter began to complain about the zipper pressing into her ankle. The inside of the zipper is covered by a leather flap to prevent this, but it is stiff leather and a narrow fit around the ankle so that when running or jumping + winter socks can be annoying/ painful.
Pro: large toe bed is great for young kids foots to spread unrestricted. No slip soles are fantastic for icy grounds. The high knee height while difficult for young kids to sit on floor during circle time, was heaven sent in keeping her warm while walking to school. A great compromise between functional/ warm and pretty one rarely sees in girls boot designs.
Verdict: would buy again in black and only for children age 6 years and up that sit at desks. Tall, thin children will be happiest with these boots.

As one reviewer mentioned, they are quite tall. I got a size 8 for my daughter for next fall. Currently she is in a 7. Of course when they came, she wanted to wear them around the house. They almost seemed like they fit! But only because I couldn't really tell...the leather is sort of stiff on the top of the foot, and of course with the toe guard you couldn't push down to tell where her toes were. But they were VERY tall...up to bottom of her knees. I'm assuming in a few months that won't be a problem? They are darn cute though, so we are keeping them! I held up her size 8 Keen sandals to the soles of the boots, and they were about the same length, and her 8 sandals are still big, so I have my fingers crossed.

I got these boots for my almost 5 year old daughter. They are very nice quality and super cute, but they are too tall.
She wears size 9, and these boots came up right under her knees, they hurt her behind her knees when she bent down or sat on the floor.
If your child is tall or has long legs for their age, then these would probably be a great choice.
I love that they are waterproof. Sadly, we returned them.
