My daughter needs a good, sturdy shoe for the playground and something that also looks good with her uniform. This shoe accomplishes both. She has worn this style for 4 years and we have had no issues with it.

Keds Champion Toe Cap MJ Sturdy Yet Attractive

Reviewer: Deb from Illinois
I bought these shoes for my granddaughter because the chunky shoes she had been wearing were not flexible enough for a toddler to develop her balance. Keds had been the sneaker of choice for her mother and I, and now we have passed that on to a third generation. She immediately began moving better and faster in these lightweight shoes. (Her mother and I are trying to remember that was what we wanted as we chase her.)The shoes are much sturdier than the cloth Keds I remember, but still flexible. The attractiveness and dainty look of the shoe was a much appreciated added value feature. We have received many compliments and questions of "Where did you get those?"One part of the Keds design that I had forgotten, however, was the narrower depth of shoe immediately over the toes. Even with the toe cap, this space is barely adequate. With ingrown toenails haunting both sides of her family tree, I imagine we will need the room of a more square-toed shoe design as she grows. [Sadly.] But right now they are perfect and I expect her to run them smooth before she grows out of them.

Funtasma Star 16C Cute basic shoe

This is your basic ballet flat with a strap. Cute shoe but nothing special about it. Fortunately that was exactly what I was looking for. My 6 yr old daughter wore these shoes for Christmas and they looked very nice with her dress. I only gave them 4 stars because I thought they were a little pricey for a plain shoe.
