I'm really impressed with the quality and value of these boots. I purchased them because it is so difficult to find shoes that are ethically made, especially for children, and they did not disappoint. I bought a pair for each of my children, 3 and 6 yo. There were no complaints about having to break them in. I will certainly purchase more in the future, after I pass these on to their second user (which I fully anticipate doing because these shoes are so sturdy). I only wish they also came in full grain leather because suede is difficult to keep clean, especially in wet falls and winter. And you know... they're kids.
My granddaughter loved her cute handmade veldskoen shoes. Thanks for the discount and great customer service.
Love these! I purchased for my nursing patient who has dwarfism. He wears a child size 2 shoe and requires a prosthetic support insert. These boots fit the bill! Very stylish for a 14 yo who wears a child size, and they accommodate his supportive orthotics. His friends are going gah-gah over the bright blue soles and it’s giving my patient a big confidence boost! I own three pair of Velds and I love them so much. So happy to pass on the love to a delightful fighting warrior kid who is now the best dressed.
I think they run a bit big but they are beautiful and look so nice on my 5 year old. Awesome quality!
These shoes are very comfortable and well made. In addition, they are lovely.
