While wearing these slippers my 2.5 year-old grandson slipped and fell down a flight of stairs -- It seems the small plastic bumps on the soles which are intended to create resistance are actually very smooth and instead create a quasi ball-bearing effect -- this is a feature that should be redesigned!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
These really are great little slippers for all the above mentioned reasons. However, they are so incredibly tight around the ankles. My daughter (17 months) is very much average-sized and her foot measures 5.5. These slippers are K5-6 and fit well in length but not at all in girth at the ankles. She tugged at them the moment we put them on. Beware.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
