So first of all this shoes are BEUTIFUL. I bought these for my daughter who’s not even 2 yrs old yet and has bigger feet than the average 2 year old. Please make sure you do go off the sizing chart, it is different than most companies shoe sizes. These shoes are light weight, even with the pearls and metal brackets in between the pearls. They’re also pretty flexible, which is important for my daughter because she does have a wider foot. The satin is nice, but because of that it will create a bit of ripple on the shoe because it’s a fabric and not a hard leather or plastic. I don’t mind because when your kid wears the shoe, regardless of the shoe or brand, they will create creases when they start walking in them. I would definitely recommend because these shoes are gorgeous and because it’s really hard to find really nice shoes for infants and toddlers. Wish I could upload pics.
