Girls' Trekker Mary Jane Shoes
Happy to own these shoes again!
I am an adult who purchased these shoes for herself. About 5 years ago, LE carried this style in women's sizes and I bought a pair. They were so comfortable, supportive, and cute that I bought 3 more pairs. Other than bedroom slippers, these shoes are just about the only shoes I've worn over the past 5 years. They are so durable that I still own three pairs--two in very good condition and one stained pair that I wear for doing yard work. I wanted to buy even more colors, but LE discontinued the criss-cross strap style. I never bothered to try the new style of Mary Jane trekkers because all the reviews I read were just awful. Customers were complaining big time and asking for the old fit and style back.
Then I found out that the old style was available in girls' sizes. Fun colors, too! I ordered the blue and the bright pink. They are slightly snug, but my foot is a little wide and wide sizes are not available. I'm hoping they will stretch out a little like my old pairs did. Otherwise, they are cute and comfortable.
I normally wear a 7.5 in women's shoes, but a girl's size 6 seems to fit well lengthwise.

Sturdy Shoe for Play
I bought this shoe in size 10 for my almost-4-year-old daughter and she loves them. I still need to help her put on her shoes, and these are easy to put on and have worn well so far through lots of rough and dirty play. Shoes seem to run true to size, and the insides are made of anti-microbal material which is a bonus! I'd highly recommend these shoes.

Cute shoes, but a little expensive
I bought them for my niece. The shoes are a little big, but they are so cute and in good quality. We decided to keep them. I took one star off because it's a little expensive.

Great overall summer shoe.
I bought these for my 7 year old daughter. She loves them. We had the version from several years ago which seems very similar to this new trekker. Sizing seems to run a little big, which I find consistent with most of Lands End shoes. I bought her a size 1, but ended up exchanging for a 13. Cute color.

Need Half Sizes
This shoe is cute and seems sturdy. My daughter liked the style, but unfortunately they were too big and they are not available in half sizes. Why, Lands' End, why??? Kids can't wear a shoe that's too big or too small, and quite frankly, neither can anyone else.

We bought these in a 12 because my five-year-old's foot is an 11 and we've been buying 12's for room to grow. The catalog associate had said that an 11 would take that into account but never having bought shoes online or from LE I erred on the safe side. It turns out an 11 would probably have been fine because the shoes are too long even for wiggle room. I will keep this in mind in future. We bought these on sale so I'm not put out. We'll use them as indoor shoes in the Fall or for next Spring. I bought them to go with summer dresses (we don't "do" shorts!) while playing in the playground. I think a few people have said they are more narrow but they seem regular width to me.

Looks as pictured, comfortable, easy slip on, cute.
My daughter is very picky when it comes to shoes and she likes these shoes. Most importantly she likes the look, they are comfortabl,e and she can slip them on and off easily. She is not a tennis shoe wearer, so these are fashionable, but yet can be worn in gym class.

Cute all purpose shoes
These shoes are great; they are water shoes but can be used for outside play since kids get into water gun fights, mud, general messiness. These can be easily cleaned and are reported to be very comfortable.

These run true-to-size (purchased a 13M and they line up exactly with my stepdaughter's size 13 Nike gym shoes). Very cute with or without socks. Coordinate perfectly with the Girls' Knit Kit separates.

Not quite the same as the style a few years ago, but I still like them
I had these shoes in women's sizes a few years back, and they were among my favorite shoes ever. I have given those such a beating, and I was hoping these would be a good replacements. Close, but not quite...
I ordered this girls' style in size 7, and as the chat rep told me, it does in fact fit my size 8.5-9 adult feet. The toe box is a little bit narrow than the old style, and rubs a little bit at the base of my little toes. I don't remember the old style doing that, but I'm wondering if that might loosen up a little as I wear them more. I have medium width feet, but love to have a little extra space in my shoes.
I also ordered them for my kids, and they love them. So far no complaints about them rubbing anywhere. They are extremely cute, in any case.
I chose the navy blue for me, but the pink and purple I can't get away with (perfect for my kids, though.) I had black in the old style, and not only could wear them in a casual work environment, but in fact got compliments on them every time I wore them. PLEASE bring them back in women's sizes and more adult colors!!!
