It’s not just me who is obsessed with shoes, it’s my daughter too! Victoria Footwear has the cutest shoes for men and women as well as children. My toddler wears a size 9.5 and I received their Mercedes Velcro Lona in Fuchsia to review. Let me just say how perfect these are if you want your child to feel comfortable in their own feet! If you happen to not like this style they have plenty of others to choose from which a large range of sizes. You can’t go wrong with lots of sizes to choose from. I was unsure whether these would fit my toddler as they only had a size 9 and not a 9.5. With her rapidly growing feet I wasn’t sure whether they would be too small in the front of on top due to the thickness of her feet.
We had success, and they fit! In fact she has a bit of room to last a few more months (it would be nicer if it was longer than that!).
The inside feels like a fabric texture and there’s not too much padding on the bottom but my daughter seems to enjoy running around in them. She has not complained about her feet hurting and they’re also very easy for her to put on by herself. She’s not even close to turning three yet!
These would be perfect with casual jeans, dress pants, a skirt, shorts or simply a sweater dress with stockings. Now that my toddler does not allow me to help her she puts the shoes on by herself and these have made it much easier for her to do it alone. The fabric on the outside is smooth like a regular pair of fabric sneakers and the velcro strap pulls through the metal hook with ease and is easy to pull tight. Because my daughter’s feet are so chubby the velcro strap does not pull all the way over so it meets in the middle. This still has not prevented her from tearing up the living room or even outside while running around.
The bottoms are very easy to clean since there aren’t too many gaps or crevices to pluck dirt and other grime out of. If they do get dirty I simply run just the bottom under water and let them dry in our wash room. The fabric is quite easy to clean as well, just simply wet a wash cloth and clean off the surface then let them air dry like the bottoms.
If you love these shoes then you’ll love the other ones that Victoria Footwear has to offer. Their women’s were quite unique looking as well! You can purchase these Fuchsia shoes for $50.
