I'm quite disappointed with the pair I recently bought for my daughter. She got her first pair of Minnetonka mocs two years ago, when they fit her just right. They were light, soft, comfortable and had minimalist moccasin feel with thin rubber soles and hardly any padding inside, which was exactly what we were looking for in kids shoes. She wore her first pair for 2 full years, because the leather just kept stretching as her feet grew from size 2 to size 4. On the outside hey still look like they've only been worn for a month or two, not two years - that's how well they held up. The little rubber dots on the soles have rubbed off in some spots but they just look smoothed out, with no holes in the soles. Apparently the design has changed since then significantly. Here are the key differences we noticed:

*The rubber on the soles is about twice as thick, with ridges on the heels instead of dots all over. My 11 year old daughter only wore them for a couple of days and the rubber ridges and rim that goes all the way around the soles have started to shred in the heel area.
*There's a stiff fat seam right in the center of the back of the heel, covered by heel flap. My daughter does not like it.
*The insole is cut longer than necessary in the back of the heel and curls up slightly, adding more discomfort to the heel area.
*The insole is not one continuous piece, but ends right before the ball of the foot.
*The insole is thickly padded in the heel area, which, combined with the thicker rubber on the sole, eliminates the minimalist feel of the shoe. How disappointing.
*The overall craftsmanship has declined, with less attention being paid to the construction of the leather upper. (see photo, fringe flap not secured at the edges, shoe rim is left unfinished near the fringe)

So all in all, this is not the same shoe that my daughter enjoyed wearing for the past 2 years. It feels and looks much cheaper, even though we paid less for it two years ago. The *feel* of moccasin is not there anymore, just the look. I'm giving it two stars instead of one, leaving some room for the benefit of the doubt in hopes that the shoes will soften up in the heel with a bit of time and wear. I will try to update the review once we see how the shoes hold up, although I don't have much hope for the shredding rubber on the soles. If you are new to these mocs, you probably won't know what you are missing, but if you are a return customer, like we were, I suggest you consider the changes in the design mentioned in this review.

This is my third time ordering these shoes and I'm so disappointing this time. The right shoe is perfect but the left is a completely different fit. The stitching feels different. The left shoe looks significantly smaller the the right one. It's so uncomfortable to wear I can only keep the shoe on for 30 minutes before my foot starts to hurt. I'm so upset by this purchase and honestly wish I would have never bought them.

Absolutely adorable. Unfortunately they did not fit and I returned them.

I purchased these for my 8 year old daughter based on the positive reviews but the quality was terrible. Within a month the stitching at the toes broke. The shoes fit loosely so it wasn't caused by too small of a fit. She only wore them occasionally before her toes poked through. I was especially disappointed because the price point was on the high end.

Fit as expected! also seems pretty well made! so far it has endured 8 months of my 6 year olds outdoor adventures! Must say that is an accomplishment!

I purchased the child's size 3 (I wear about a 5 1/2 in women's sizing) and they fit very well. They seem to run a bit large and wide, which is what I was expecting based on having tried on a 6 in women's that were too large for me. I could wear them with thin socks as well if I wanted to. The soles seem to have good traction and they even have some support, not a ton but more than a pair of ballet flats. All in all I'm very happy with them and will most likely buy more!

After I bought my kilty mocs my daughter had to have her own! Unfortunately, hers were much bigger in her usual size so she'll have to wait a few more months before she can wear them. However, I can tell they are the same great quality as mine. They are sooooo cute! We got them in the turquoise and it's a beautiful color!

Purchased for my 4 year old, so they never stay on for long stretches of time. She loves them, and they fit as expected - I used a ruler to measure her feet, compared with the size chart, and they're just right. Seem like good quality, exactly what I was hoping for.

These were too small for my son. Although my husband didn't think so, I thought it looked as though one of the shoes was smaller than the other. I sent them back because within a month they probably would have been way too small.

Minnetonka is popular in our area, so we can never seem to find them; tried Amazon for these and am glad I did. My daughter normally wears a 2.5; I purchased these slightly large, and had no problem with the sizing. They're comfortable, well made, and my daughter loves them. The price is also slightly less than what we'd pay in stores, so I'm satisfied all around.
