Not only are they soo cute! They are extremely functional. My son is almost 3 and I did purchase them a few sizes larger, to make these last. He can walk in them soo easily. Last year, he refused to use his boots because they were so clunky and heavy. I feel like every boot I looked at for toddlers were platform. These were perfect and he loves wearing them. Recommend these for sure. Oh and they are so easy to put on!
