Rated 4 out of 5Â by Darcy Great for narrow feet!
My daughter picked these out and loves them. She calls them her lightening shoes. They have a great look to them and went well with her fairy costume for Halloween. When we had her feet measured at the store, they said this shoe runs a little smaller and gave us a half size up. The opening is a little narrow so we have to help my daughter get them on and off, otherwise they fit great. We bought a pair of these and received another sample of this shoe to facilitate my review.

Â by NewlyCrunchyMamaOf3 Wonderful for Halloween!
My daughter will be wearing these for Halloween this year. They match her purple and black witch costume perfectly! I love the fact that they light-up with every step. This makes a child so much more visible to motorists while trick-or-treating in the dark. While these were meant to be her "Halloween Shoes", they have quickly become her every day shoes. They're very comfortable, easy to put on and take off, and my daughter absolutely loves the fact that they light up. She thinks that when she's wearing these shoes, she is "magic". I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a well-made, durable shoe that also happens to have a little bling to it. I received a sample of this shoe to facilitate my review.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RZKMom Hard to get on
Although the purple, sparkly, light up sneaker is my daughters' favorite combination, we can barely get them on her foot. I'm just guessing that the sizing is off at the heel of the shoe. We have to use a shoe horn to wedge her foot in. That doesn't make it easy for a 3 year old to put her shoes on by herself. Even her teacher at pre-school had to find a shoe horn to get them back on. They are loosening up a bit with wear but are not getting anywhere near "easy-on/off".

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MomtoEM Adorable shoe, but a poor fit
In all my years of buying Stride Rite shoes, this was my first disappointment. When I ordered the appropriate size for my daughter, I literally could not get them on her feet. I then ordered an extra half size up, plus a wide width instead of medium. I could get them on her this time, but barely. She also complained that they dug into her pinky toes. (Again, this was the wide width.) I think they are very cute shoes, but something needs to be done about the fit!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by discodawna too narrow at foot openeing
I love these shoes except for the opening to put your foot in. I just bought two pairs for my twins - they were not with me to try on or I could have avoided this problem all together. They cannot put the shoes on by themselves - they are 4 years old. The opening is very narrow even with the Velcro undone and stretched out and trying to put their foot in the shoe with a sock on is almost impossible. I am disappointed that I paid this much for shoes and they will probably not wear them . It seems like if I bought them big enough to put their foot in that the shoe would have been way too big for their foot ! too bad because the shoe is adorable !
