Girls' Mary Jane
Not really impressed but not all is bad
Well, the shoes are nice looking and comfortable and my 8-year-old loves them, so I have bought already several pairs and will probably buy them again. But durability for a child who's hard on shoes? I don't think so! If your child is a kicker like mine is, it will take just days for the faux leather upper to show just how faux it is and to peel off in the front. It suddenly looks like an old shoe. As for the sole, it won't last long if your child walks and runs. Would I recommend this shoe? Yes, with reservations. All in all, it is a nice shoe (just nor for kicking or running).

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!
These shoes are cheap but they are made cheap also! I bought a pair in September for my 5 year old daughter to wear with her school uniform and the material on the outside of the shoe is peeling off! I knew they probably wouldnt last long but I was hoping they would last longer then that! She told me the other day she was going to ask Santa Clause for a new pair of shoes!

After being burned by a similar "finer" shoe, I took a chance on this one. So glad I did. I bought these shoes in December of 2012 and my daughter, who is very hard on her shoes and wore them practically every day, will be wearing the same shoes again this year. They show very little wear. I plan to buy another pair a size bigger so she will be ready for when she grows out of them.

Great Active Dress Shoe
My 6 year old has had several pairs of these over the past few years. They are a great staple to her wardrobe as they are very versatile, and comfortable. She has a narrow foot so the adustable strap is great. The shoes do scuff easily. I usually darken the area with a marker. Shoe are great for school, dress & play.

Need more of these in different colors
I am a 69 year old woman that wears a size 4 wide youth shoe. I have been wearing these Mary Jane smart fit shoes since 1997. They are the only shoes I have been able to find that fit my little wide feet. They are so comfortable with the thick wedge since I have only been able to wear a thicker wedge sole since I broke a bone in the middle of my arch on one of my feet.
The only con is that I wish they came in different colors in my size and that I could find them more often. Sometimes it takes a year of continuous looking in the stores all around my home town for me to find a pair in my size.

Was not happy with the quality of this shoe at all. Most of the reviews I read said how great the shoe held up to average wear and tear. Previously I had purchased a similar pair from a different store and they basically fell apart after about 2 months and so decided to purchase these for school; after the 2nd week of my daughter wearing them the skin of the shoes started peeling and now after a few months they have almost completely worn a through.
