I read the other reviews about the show being small. So I sized up by a size and a half for my daughter. So tight that we both have difficulty even getting them on her feet. I thought they'd stretch so I forced her to wear them. Still no easier. Also, thinking a slip on would be easier for a child and quick changes, this slip on is certainly not. We will be going back to laces. However, it is a very nice and sturdy shoe and would have been great if it didn't run extremely small.
