I originally bought these for my son and they were great - practical, warm and robust for playing out, whilst looking reasonably smart. My daughter then asked for some, which I was pleased about as it is difficult to find shoes for girls that are fit for purpose. They have withstood lots of climbing without getting scuffed, and they have comfortable chunky soles with plenty of grip - my daughter now loves them as much as my son does. Unfortunately she was recently sick on hers, but they withstood the washing machine, and having been dried out slowly and given the once over with a suede brush, they look almost as good as new!
