Boys' Landon Low Sneakers
I never leave reviews but I was pretty frustrated when, after only a few wears, the shoes were ready for the garbage. They are a nice looking pair of shoes but not durable. The blue on the shoes peeled right off.

Wears quickly and poorly
I bought these shoes for my son for the start of the school year. The man-made trim is NOT durable. By October, the "durable" man-made trim was nearly entirely worn off and now, they are ready for the garbage. I hesitated getting these because they were not 100% leather and I should have listened to my gut. My son is not usually hard on his shoes or clothes and I can usually pass them down to the younger brother. Not this time. This is a fail. I wish I had seen the bad wear sooner. I would have sent them back immediately.

Poor Quality - Began Falling Apart First Day Worn
First, I want to say I absolutely LOVED these shoes when I saw them in the catalog. Unfortunately, the first day my 5 year old wore them to school the blue line around the edge of the shoe had already started fading completely off and the material on the top of the shoes near the toe area scuffed right off. It has now been 2 months since he's been wearing them and the strap you pull over to velcro has fallen apart (he has also been alternating between his other shoes, so has not been wearing these every day). Love the shoes, wish the quality was better. I do not recommend buying these unless you want to buy another pair of shoes within a few months. Land's End - Please improve the quality of this shoe!

Lasted one day
My 6-year old son loved the shoes when they arrived. He wore them to school and came home with them scuffed and one Velcro strap almost completely ripped off. They will be going back. I was extremely disappointed, as other reviewers have said. I only wish I had read the reviews before ordering :-<

Please change the material of the front top!
Very nice looking, light, breathable and very comfortable shoes. My 5 year old boy loves them and calls them the "super-fast running shoes". Having said that, I do agree with other reviewers about the scuffing issue on the front top. The fake leather peeled off in the first week of wearing, making them sadly unattractive. Fortunately my boy does not care much about this issue, but I feel that it wouldn't take much for LE to improve the design and fix this problem - they'd be just perfect!

Poorly Made Shoe
My son has had these shoes for about 2 months and I am so thoroughly disappointed with them. I've come to trust the quality Lands End typically provides in its products, especially children's shoes. These shoes were terrible from the start. After the first wear, the leather on the toes was scuffed and after the second wear, completely worn through. The tread on the heel has worn down to nothing and the rest of the sole is looking much more worn down than it should after 2 months of wear. The worst thing, however, is the Velcro strap. It has actually broken on one of the shoes, now making these unwearable for my son. I've never included pictures in a review before, but I thought it was warranted in this case.

I bought these for my 2 year old son. They fit great and were good looking. However, after just ten minutes of wear (regular playing outside), the leather on the toe was completely scuffed off and the blue line that runs around the bottom rubber part of the black shoes had also worn right off so that the color was gone. The rubber is too soft and it makes the shoe wear too quickly. I know my son is hard on shoes, but we've had others last much better than this.

Cute shoe. Just not well made.
Bought these for my 6 yr old grandson. He wore them for about a week and I have the same complaint as another customer. The rubber tips were scuffed and wore off immediately. There are actual holes in the top layer. The velcro tabs also tore. Not the quality I expect from Lands End. I am returning them.

Made made trim not durable
This is a great looking shoe and my child loves them. The only problem with this shoe is the "durable man made trim" is not durable. I received these shoes at the beginning of Sept and the blue on the trim is coming off, these shoes have maybe been worn 6 or 7 times by my 4 year old. I will be returning and I recommend Lands' End use real leather trim and I will buy these shoes again and again.

The shoes are stylish and fit great!
I bought these to have as indoor shoes for my son that just started JK. They fit great and are easy for him to put on and take off. The seem well made and are really cute too! So far I love them!
