Rated 3 out of 5 by LoveLLBean14 Great shoe, but laces need fixing.
Love these shoes for my 5 year old daughter. Bought them last fall and the fit and style was great but within 3 weeks one of the laces broke. LLBean was great and sent another pair and I sent back the old ones. After wearing the new ones for a short time a lace broke again. I didn't want to bother with sending them back again so tied the broken lace which lasted for awhile and now the lace on the other shoe just broke! I love LLBean and these shoes, but can you please do something about the laces? I'd order another pair if I knew they would hold up.

Have been buying these shoes for my daughter for 5 years- they were great once, now the laces break and cannot be easily replaced. She has had 3 pairs that have broken after very little use. Despite all of the things that are great about these shoes- water resistant, comfortable, a little wide, I will not bother with them again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Menion1998 Shoestrings break - makes shoes unwearable
Ok, you would think "just replace the shoestring" right? No, the shoestrings in these shoes are sewn in. You can't just replace them. I bought a pair a while back and LL Bean replaced them when the first shoe string broke. The same thing happened with the second pair. The strings broke. My kid has worn these shoes for less then 3 weeks to school. I have tried replacing these with little luck. The eyelet is too small for regular strings. My husband took a drill to them to enlarge the eyelet JUST SO I CAN PUT REGULAR STRINGS IN THEM. This should NOT be necessary. The shoe itself is just fine. The method of shoelace is the killer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FourLeafClover Love these!
Just bought another pair of these for my 7 year old daughter for second grade in the blue camo color, size 4. She still has the old pair from 1st grade as well! These shoes are solid, the color is gorgeous and my daughter loves them. The soles are grippy and great for gym class and hiking. The shoe is sturdy! No problems with the stretchy shoelace and they pull on/off very easily. Great shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HillCountryHikerMomma She loves wearing these shoes!
Seriously, she has made more than one person feel the inside of her shoe to feel how foamy and soft it is. She will even stand in them as if they are ballet toe shoes, and they are solid. She gained the nickname "Rockhopper" in Taos, NM this summer, so I knew I needed to get her real hiking shoes.
Her foot is wide at the base of her toes so we must get shoes to accomodate that, and these work. Easy to get on and off. I feel like buying the next few sizes...

Rated 3 out of 5 by peanutbutter45 not as good as the originals
I bought these last year for my daughters for school. They are nice but not as good as the originals( Lt. pink, Lt blue and brown). The sincher in the tongue pulls way to much leaving us to wrap the excess around the top. The back is scrunched from putting them on and off which I think should be more sturdy for support. Bring back the other ones.

My 8 year old loves these shoes. We are on our second pair once she outgrew the first. Durable and comfortable right out of the box. Very cute too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Callie6 Disappointed -- Laces keep breaking!
My kids have worn these sneakers from LL Bean for years, but this year the laces keep breaking. I have already replaced a pair for each 3 of my kids, and one of the new ones broke again already! Will not be buying these again. I'm very disappointed because they were such great shoes in the past.

Great shoes that hold up great with the kids throughout the entire winter. This is the second time I bought the kids these shoes. They drag them on the street when they ride their bikes and scooters and the soles are as good as new. Awesome shoes!
