The Pediped Dakota Flex is the perfect school shoe for my 4 year old daughter. She think they're very pretty and comfortable. In these shoes more than any others she can dance, walk on her toes, climb on the playground equipment, and run without tripping. The generously sized velcro strap helps her get them on quickly. They match all her clothes from bluejeans to twirly dresses. Best of all, the pink sparkle trim doesn't shed glitter. We are loyal Pediped customers from now on.

I have to say these shoes are so cute and really pretty in person! The glitter and style is fantastic. That being said, my 3 year old has been wearing these shoes for about 5 weeks now and they look terrible. The glitter fabric is falling apart and the white foam underneath is now starting to stick out. I don't feel like these particular shoes are up to Pediped quality. My daughter is not exceptionally hard on shoes. Her Hoy sandals and Keens from the summer still look brand new. As much as I love, love the look of these shoes, I had to pass on my experience.

These are fantastic. My wee one's feet run a little wide, but these fit perfectly. I cannot say enough about Pediped quality. She has had these for months, and they still look great.

Very cute shoes and photo doesn't do them justice. They are very sparkly, which my 3-year-old loves. They hold up well, are waterproof and machine washable, and my daughter can put them on herself. If they had lights, my daughter would wear them every day. These seem a little wider than other Pedipeds but we're able to cinch them up with the Velcro strap (my daughter has narrow feet).

This is a fantastic shoe. My daughter loves to wear them, and they're super cute. This was my first Pediped purchase, and I will certainly purchase more of them. They actually feel like they would be good for her little feet. They're easy on and easy off, which is very important for my 2 year old who doesn't like to sit still. Daddy even commented that he's glad he got her these shoes even though he had nothing to do with the purchase. He usually doesn't comment on clothing and shoes. I want to order them in every color. I wish there would be even more colors to choose from. I couldn't believe how quickly my order arrived from Zappos.

I'd also recommend: This was my first Pediped purchase and I'm looking forward to purchasing more from them.
