Girls' Athletic Mary Jane Shoes
Comfortable shoes. My only complaint is that they are a little too unstructured at the back. I have ordered them in the past and it was easy to slip them on without having to bend down and hold out the back. With these newer ones, you can't slip them on quite as easily. Other than that - great shoes.

My daughter loves these shoes.
A new school year means a new pair of athletic Mary Jane shoes from Land's End. The previous pair lasted all through last school year and the summer, and looked great even after LOTS of wear. My daughter (8) loves this new pair even more than the previous one. The new shade of purple is very pretty, and she especially likes the shimmer in the fabric. They are a great alternative to sneakers while not being too "fancy" for dresses with leggings. She's about a 4 1/2 shoe size, so we got the size 5 and they fit well. A little large, but I'm sure her feet will continue to grow as the school year progresses.

Cute and Comfortable
I bought these shoes for my 9 yr. old daughter for school. We've tried them on but haven't worn them all day yet. They look comfortable, but I'm a little disappointed in the quality. The heel of shoe is a bit flimsy and looks like it may be difficult to get on. I bought a similar style from Stride Rite last year and my daughter loved them. Those seemed a bit more sturdy. The fit is fine. I bought a size 3 (my daughter now wears a 2 1/2) and they should be good for the school year.

This shoe is such a pretty color
The shoe fit and quality are excellent, the velcro strap is adjustable and easy for a two year old to put on! My granddaughter loves them.

Good shoe, but Navy color bleeds onto and through socks
Bought these for daughter's uniform shoes in Navy. She is 5 and liked how they fit and feel. However, she was upset as was I, that the color from the strap bled onto her white socks and even through them and made the top of her foot blue. She has only worn these a couple of times and I hope that this stops. I would have rate it a 5 except for this problem.

These shoes transition from playground to classroom. They wear well.

Not as nice as last year's style
I just received the brown reduced priced style from last year, as well as the pink and black new "sparkly" style. We had the blue, brown and black of the old style last year and knew they had worn well. The new style has a super thin nylon type upper and is more like a water shoe than an actual playground shoe that is to be worn when weather is cooling. The upper doesn't really coordinate that well with the suede strap, but the suede is the only sturdy part. They are also one full size larger than the brown of the old style. My daughter could hardly walk around in these with the strap tightened, but the brown ones had just the right amount of room to make it through fall. I still plan on sizing down to a 2 (she wore 2s last year) in the pink only because I got a great deal on them with the 40% sale plus kids sale making them only $16. I wouldn't buy them for the full price b/c the quality isn't there.

Great shoe, great fit
I bought these for my daughter, in black, to wear around Disney. They are comfy like a sneaker, but breathable like a sandal. She has never complained about the comfort. Her normal shoe size is a narrow 2, and I bought her the 2. They fit great, so I'd say they are true to size. The strap seems a little long, but it doesn't hinder the fit. I'm going to order her another pair to keep as her "indoor shoes" at school.

comfy and classy
My daughter tends to like one pair of shoes and wear them all the time, so this was a good, comfortable choice. I just wish we could have gotten navy instead of black

this is a great shoe for grown-ups too
As I have gotten older comfort in a shoe has become more important but I am nowhere near a point where I want to wear a "grandma" shoe. These are cute, comfortable shoes that look fine with both slacks and a casual dress. The sizing goes up to 7 which translates to a women's 9. Great value and comfort.
