Rated 5 out of 5Â by Twoboystwingirlsmom Great White Leather Shoe
I always buy a pair of plain white sneaker-type shoes for my twin daughters every year, to match certain outfits. I am not a mom who lets her kids wear wild colored athletic tennis shoes with every outfit (like dresses) no matter what. They have to match-I hate for the shoes to clash. We use to always get the Keds Mary Janes...but alas, my twins are now too big for them. So last Sept. 2012, I found these at Stride Rite. I wanted the Double Dutch, but these were all they had. So we got them and have been very pleased. I like the way the Double Dutch looks a little better, but these are a almost as attractive. We only wear the white laces and take off the charms; the whole reason I buy a white pair is to match with outfits that are harder to match.But for people who only want to buy one pair of athletic type shoes a year, you could definitely change it up a bit with the other laces. And probably most girls would like the charms. Since we take them off, I am not sure if the scuff up the top of the shoe after long wear. It is almost Sept. 2013, now and they can still wear our shoes from last year. Not quite outgrown...almost though. And they still look good. Soles are fine, leather fine. We are passing them on to Good Will. *Only issue we had was for a "time" was that the twins complained that their toes on the end would rub on the outer side...these get a little more narrow at the outer tip than the Double Dutch...and my girls have really long, (not wide) feet. During that 2/3 month period I had them wear a thin pair of socks under their regular socks and that took care of it.Just something to remember.
