Rated 5 out of 5 by UTKMW Great shoes that have held up well
I've been buying these multisport sneakers for both my now 13 yo son and 10 yo daughter for the past couple of years. Both of the kids love the shoes and wear them almost daily throughout the year (neither are into sandals during the summer). The shoes have held up very well to all the wear and both of the kids think they're very comfortable. I think we've gotten a lot of "bang for our buck" in regards to these shoes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SMo57 Good quality, runs extremely small
I bought size 2 for my eldest child, ended up giving them to my size 13 youngest child. The shoes I bought would be useless to me if I didn't have a younger kid to wear them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mntgirl Not the best!
So this may be my first down graded review I have ever written. I love LL Bean products because they are durable and they last. I have bought LL Bean shoes for my child in the past and she has always outgrown the shoes before we had any issues with them. This pair of shoes lasted exactly 5 days before the shoe lace snapped. I wish I had heeded the other reviews about the laces, but I didn't. The fit is great, the tread is great, the colors are great, but the laces are too thin or not strong enough material for the shoe. I was disappointed these didn't work out because they are a great price for a shoe, especially when my child grows out of shoes every 3 months or so. We'll try a different pair or I would purchase them again if the lace issue were fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopper626 Cute shoe, runs small
These sneakers are adorable and come in great colors. I bought a girls and boys pair, and both ran almost a whole size small, in my opinion. I would recommend going a size up when ordering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4KidsforThisMom Lasted the WHOLE Year!
I bought these for my 6yo daughter and she has worn them the entire school year plus through this summer and the shoes are still in great shape! She is rough on shoes in general and she wears them almost every single day. No holes, little wear on the soles, they just look great! They've also survived multiple camps in addition to regular wear. We are planning on ordering a new pair for this school year in the next size up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eburghomeschooler Disregard the other reviews....
These shoes have held up better than all the other outdoor brand names that weve tried!! I am so satisfied with these shoes that we bought for our 10 yr. old super active tree climber gal. Her last shoes were the spendy comparable Solomon tennies and the laces broke right out of the woven eye grommets. These actually have reinforced lace holes and are have held up great!!! The color is awesome...hides all the dirt and mud well and best of all -- it doesn't break the bank!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MBM94556 The shoe laces all break
I should have listened to the reviews. I bought two pairs, one for my 5 year old daughter and another for my 7 year old. Both shoe laces broke within six weeks. I read this from previous reviews which is why I didn't buy a pair for my son, however my daughters are not rough on shoes or clothes and I just hoped it wouldn't happen. I was wrong.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MarieMom Love the color, but shoe didn't fit well
I buy nearly all of my 5 year old's shoes from LLBean. She's size 11 little kids. This shoe was way to narrow - she couldn't get it on without some serious shoving - and then once on, it was really tight. It was also short on length. She has other shoes from LLBean of the same size that fit well. We returned these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Micki2015 Great sport shoes!
Both my daughters, 5 and 7, love LL Bean's multisport shoes. We are on our 2nd pair for each. The shoes, particularly the soles, seem to hold up well with nearly every day wear and the bright colors don't show the dirt. I only wish the shoe laces were a bit stronger. They tend to fray - but not until several months of wear. I would highly recommend these shoes for kids! Good for school play and light hiking, too.

I had been to so many stores with my daughter trying on sneakers and none fit her comfortably. These are perfect. She is in a 2 which is a half size up from what she would take in most other brands. The colors are also vibrant. And the adjuster strap is great -- no laces and no Velcro to lose its stickiness over time.
