Encourage active imagination in Tsubos Whiro slip-on. The easy pull toggle wraps their foot in comfort. The upper is sporty and breathable for weekend exploration or getting to class in style. Product features include: Textile upper, Rubber sole, Single pull closure, Cushion footbed.

Not for slender feet!

Either this shoe will fit just as it's sent - or you'll have to return it. The center panel is very stiff, so tightening the laces means there's a thick sharp-edged hunk of elastic fabric folded into the top of your child's foot. My daughter's foot is very slender and we probably had 3/4 of an inch of room between the top of her foot and the shoe, and no way to adjust. This shoe otherwise seemed to fit it's intended use - a casual school shoe for pants & jeans that was also good for recess play.
