Girls' Trekker Mary Jane Shoes
Fantastic shoes!! Please bring them back!!
These shoes are wonderful! I have ordered them for my girls for years and we have loved every pair! We wear them almost year-round with and without socks and they have held up amazingly! My only disappointment is that Lands End appears to have discontinued them. I have recommended these to many family and friends and they loved them too. Now we are all just sad that these shoes are no longer available.

Please Bring this Shoe Back in Women's Sizes
My two pairs of Mary Jane Trekkers are now about 5 & 4 years old and still holding up well. I LOVE these shoes and wish Land's End would bring them back in women's sizes. They are sporty looking and look great with khakis, jeans, capris, shorts and skorts. The fit is true-to-size and very comfortable. I dress casually for work so wear these there and on the weekends; great when you can't wear a sandal yet don't want to wear a sneaker or other enclosed shoe, and they look stylish and sporty w/o looking like a clunky hiking sandal. The replacement style is just a Mary Jane with a more rounded toe, which I don't like, and they look too girlish for a woman, while the old style's criss-cross straps gave a more active, grown-up look, though they still look cute on kids (my daughter loved the pair she had). I would definitely order a girl's size 7 as suggested by another reviewer, but don't want to wear kiddie colors. Luckily, these shoes hold up really well (and they hand-wash well, too), but I want other colors, now, so please, please, please, bring the Mary Jane Trekker back for women!

Good and Bad
I'm really not sure how to rate these shoes. I purchased two pair for my girls. My 7.5 year old says her shoes fit fine, while my four year old had blisters on her foot the first day she wore them. She has narrow feet and the medium width are roomy, but there's a bump inside, where the straps are sewn into the shoe, that rubbed my daughter's pinky toe raw. Her foot hurt so badly that she had to sit out her play date. Meanwhile, my 7.5 year old, who has wider feet, had no trouble at all in her wide widths. They are well made and adorable in person, but I will be sending back one pair.

Very comfortable; lots of compliments, can fit up to a women's 8 1/2 (buy a 7)
I own these shoes in three colors. I am age 63. I wear them with low cut sneaker socks, because I like to keep my shoes nice. The insole on mine is removable and washable. I wear the girls' size 7 in regular width. The toe is more rounded than the women's style; so I like it better. I wear with shorts and cropped pants. Print off the shoe sizing chart and stand on the chart. If you never take a wide in women's, you won't need a wide in girls. I have owned my shoes for 3 or 4 years, and I am getting a new pair. I hope that the insole is still removable. I wash it by hand, scrubbing with an old toothbrush.

Rough seams on the inside of these shoes. Wear Socks.
I bought these for my 5 year old, after an afternoon of camping, her feet were covered in blisters. The seams on the inside of her shoes are so rough! My fault she did not have socks on, but on a hot summers day, who thinks of socks with these shoes? Now, she won't touch them. Needless to say, I'm disappointed, because I love all the other shoes I've bought for her from Land's End.

A great shoe!
I ordered this shoe for my 5yr old daughter and it is now her favorite summer shoe. Perfect for running & being outside - easy to put on and remove. A great summer shoe!

Don't hesitate...this one's a winner!
I do love these. Got the wrong size in one but keeping it for my second to grow into. They love them too, even tho I bought too big, she insists on wearing. Now that's an endorsement! They are asking for additional colors now.

Just received these today (in crimson) and couldn't be happier- my daughters exact words were "they are beautiful". True to size, can be worn with pants, shorts and dresses, very cute, sporty shoe. Well made, easy on with Velcro strap.

Finally they listened to us!
This is hands down the best summer shoe I have ever had for my daughter. We had this same style last year and it was her go-to shoe all summer. It is cute, good in water, doesn't make her toes sweat and it is easy on/off without being floppy or too tight. The sole is flexible but tough enough for hikes. I am thrilled to see they finally stopped trying to re-invent the wheel and left this style alone (although I am still buying last year's shoe...it's cheaper :-)
