"I bought these for my daughter's birthday and since I buy her shoes often - I expected the usual "oh, more shoes?" so I was really happy to see her smile and say "WOW!" when she opened the box. (actually, she said it twice!!) The colors are bright and fun and the shoes are comfortable - she's 11 but wearing a size 9 Women's so tried them on - I usually wear a 9.5/10 and I easily fit into them - so they must run at least a little long which is typical for "skate shoes" These shoes are big score with my daughter - she's worn them basically every day since she got them a couple month's ago - and they've held up great!"
