"I purchased these for my 6 year old son. I previously purchased the 3/4 high top pair same color he love's those. These came right before he was leaving for school and quickly changed to these. I was called the "cool" mom today. He is happy so I'm happy. They feel good, look nice, I did purchase 1/2 size up. These are slip on with a little elastic on each side to help them stay on."
