These shoes are SO adorable! They look like replica converse (but without the material quality, Converse logo, and ability to stand up in them.
The sewing is decent, but you can see where there are loose threads on the inside of the shoe and some knots on the outside. So they will likely last one baby before they are worn out, but not a second.
The laces are long enough to make a bow whether the lace design is straight or criss crossed.
The metal lace rings are not perfectly even, but are properly held together so do not interfere with the show lacing.
The canvas material seems like decent quality, but the fake leather shows scuffs easily, and one of them did not fare well when the dog found it (I immediately grabbed it away, but it had a hole in it with one bite).
They do not have any support for standing or walking, therefore perfect for under 6 months of age – any older or use other than for sitting, they are not the shoe for that kind of support.
They are also slippery on the bottom, so another warning not to use on a child who is walking or learning how to walk!
Due to our dog indenting the front of the shoe, I actually found a second use for these shoes – they make great parrot foot toys (toys for them to play with OUTSIDE the cage and with supervision with the laces in). Our African Grey has been playing with one shoe for the last hour!
For the price point, they are stylish, economical, and keep feet covered. Practicality all the way!
