Buying shoes online can be difficult because your physically not there to try them out and physically see it. Like you and I I'm sure we were searching through a lot of brands so I'm going to try to explain why I got these shoes and brand instead.
My daughter shoe was nearing it end of life and she needed new pairs of shoes. I asked her what color she wanted to start with she said pink. Then while scrolling she pick several and this happen to be one of the one she liked. As far as shoes size this brand made it pretty easy to find the size for the most part. First she is 7 so a pair of shoes would fit ages between 4-8. Perfect. Next shoes size. I took out a tape measure and measured her foot from heel to toe which was 8 inch exact. So according to her shoe size I should be getting a size 2 but I wanted a little more room in her feet and the next size was for a heel to toe of 8.2 which was a size 2.5 so I chose that size and couldn't be happier with the selection and it fit well with just a little room.
Since I was into searching the right fit I didn't see the detail of the shoes until I got them. I thought these shoes were laced plus a Velcro strap which it wasn't. It was a elastic band lace with velcro strap which was kind of a disappointment because I was teaching her how to tie her shoes.
Overall im very happy with the shoes so far. I guess ill update if anything changes as far as the built quality but so far so good. If you found my review helpful please hit the helpful button, it lets me know that my review might have helped you in someway.
