Boys' Landon Low Sneaker
Purchased this shoe for my 8 year old son. He attends a Catholic elementary school. He needed a nice but comfortable shoe for the mass his 2nd grade class was participating in. These arrived in time. They looked great. The navy color is nice. Great buy!

Nice looking shoe but not for play
I bought these for my son who loves to play outside and for school. He is 6 and has not mastered tying his shoe laces, I thought this would be a perfect shoe. He picked out the brown and orange color. The color was as expected and the sizing was true to size. They are nice shoes but not designed for everyday wear. The suede front part of the shoe is wearing off after only a couple uses and the orange trim is also coming off. I would not recommend this shoe if you want to use daily, but it's a nice looking shoe for special occasions.

Extremely cute and my son loves them, but low quality...
We've only had them for two months, and they already look terrible. The suede is scuffed, which is nobody's fault but my son's, but a toe cap would prevent some of that if they had been designed that way. The stitching on the velcro strap is frayed, and the strap is falling apart. I still love these shoes, and my son loves wearing them. Maybe Lands End will make them in a slightly modified version adjusted for durability and then they are a home run.

These shoes are perfect for on the go kids.
My 6 year old son loves these shoes! He struggles with tying and feels good being able to put these on himself. We both like how cool they look; sporty and nice. He has sweaty feet and these shoes don't stink!

Yes, the quality isn't the best because the colored trim does wear away quickly as does the outer layer of the suede material, especially on the toe region of course. But this is our second pair because other than these cosmetic issues, it's a great shoe. It's lightweight, flexible, and a cinch for my young son to put on/off.

I loved the look of these shoes but was disappointed in how they held up. After only a few weeks they started to look really worn down. The velcro for the strap came off and the colored stripe along the outside of the rubber sole wore off quickly. My son loved the shoes but I had to throw them out after only a short period of wearing them.

My son and I like them a lot. Quality appears good. My only concern is that the suede is durable and can withstand the rough play of a 6 year old. We shall see. . .

I bought these in blue for my six year old boys. I liked that they were "dressy" sneakers and thought they would be perfect for jeans and khaki's to church, dinner? etc. They are exactly what I wanted and my boys really love them. I bought a size 13 for their 71/2 inch feet and they fit great.

Once again, a cute shoe that doesn't fit. This shoe has a sloppy loose fit. If you have the size correct, the width is way too large on a thin foot. Overall a well made casual light weight shoe for show, not a sneaker. We will stick to the Sperry type shoe from now on.

Nice looking casual shoe
Theses are a nice casual shoe alternative to traditional sneakers. They are easy for my sons to get on and off. They are not a heavy, durable shoe, but that is not what I intended to use them for anyway. I agree with the other review that the wear on these is not great. The colored line along the edge or the soles wears off very quickly, and that contrasting color is one of the reasons I liked these shoes. They are a bit narrow on my son who wears a wide width.
