Rated 5 out of 5 by Liz04 Great alternative to clunky boots when the winter weather is messy but there is not a lot of snow on the ground!
I bought these shoes for my son to wear when it is too messy and slippery for gym shoes but not snowy enough for boots. We both love them - easy in, easy out and they don't weigh him down when he wants to run around outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BellevueMommy Great shoe for school!
The shoe lasted all school year. Toward the end of school, my son wore a hole in the fabric near the front of the shoe. He loves these shoes since he can just slip them on and run around all day at school. As a 3rd grader, he is rough on his shoes. We ordered a new pair for 4th grade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by htlmom great for the finicky kid
At the beginning of the school year I bought my son a few pair several high end Italian loafer type shoes with very soft leather for my finicky (borderline sensory problem) child and by October they looked like they belonged to a street urchin. He needed easy on off shoes for quick change after school that were comfy, easy to get on and off, fit the uniform and could stand up to some weather. After my very expensive shoes falling apart, my husband picked out these, We ought them in December and currently they could use a little dusting off but otherwise are in good shape. They are dressy enough to wear with a pretty tight uniform policy, and I have noticed some of the other kindergarteners in class are following suit and wearing them too. Looking forward to buying other pairs in other colors for a different school next year!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy98 Very disappointed
Shoes only lasted 2 months. Holes in sole of both shoes, very poorly made. The black plastic part at the toe of the shoe has peeled away from the shoe. Not impressed, would not order again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wiscomom Bummed.
I have been buying these shoes for four years for my son. I buy two pairs each year and they have always been a great shoe. I bought two pairs this year for school and just received a note from the school that the shoes don't conform to the dress code because they are not "non-marking" shoes. I have never had problems with that in the past and am bummed to see that they changed the shoe. Hopefully I can return the shoes. They are an excellent uniform shoe, and overall well made and fit well. However, I will give it three stars because they aren't up to par from last year. I still would recommend them; but not to someone who needs a non-marking shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenniferKing The shoe is the perfect color for everything.
My son LOVES these shoes and we have a really hard time getting him to wear any of his other shoes to school! He has several other choices for his uniform but these are the ones he chooses unless we make him wear something else! They are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJBJ LOVE! wish they came in leather
Our son has to wear black shoes with his uniform. These are perfect for wet days. Comfortable, neat, durable.
Just wish they came in black leather, so he could wear them every day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JasperMom Wore out in 3 months
I was so optimistic about these shoes. Within 3 months both shoes had holes worn in soles, piping was frayed, and a hole worn in one toe. They were worn 3-4 times per week during this time.
I've always been happy with Lands End quality in the past but these just didn't stand up to the quality I have come to expect from Lands End. They would probably be fine for school but definately not going to hold up to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SRC127 Great shoe!
This is the third year I have bought these shoes for my twin sons! They are sturdy, durable, and go with jeans or dress pants! My sons love them because they are comfortable, and because of the rubber bottoms they can run around in them when they go outside for recess. The price and quality can't be beat on comparable brands for such an all purpose shoe. My sons have them in black, navy, and tan this year. Please don't change anything about them!
