High top adds extra stability. Great retro look in a brightly-colored shoe. Cleans well in the washing machine. Stays on better than the low rise version.
Sizing can be tough. Design makes shoe slightly longer than normal.
Great shoe for young kids. Hook and loop tape makes it easy to take on and off. Comes in a variety of colors. Can be cleaned in a washing machine.
Some of the hook and loop closures started to rip within a few days.
A great look that comes in several colors. Easy to clean canvas uppers. They are a bit long but that works well for kids who are still growing.
Tough to get on young kids because of the laces.
Durable canvas upper cleans well in the washing machine. Laces hold well. Bright colors don't fade.
Narrow design may be uncomfortable for wide feet.
