Merrell Mini Moc Rating:
These shoes work really well for kids ages 1-4. The shoes are generally well made. I have had two kids go through the same pair. The Velcro straps do not lose their grip over time and allow the shoe to fit snugly around small feet. The sole of the shoe is extremely flexible making it particularly good for newer walkers. Despite the shoes flexibility, the sole does not seem to wear our as quickly as one might expect. The shoe comes in an array of colors that don't fade.
The only downside of the shoe is that the suede is not water resistant so if its going to be used in wet weather your best bet is to treat the fabric with a water proofing solution like TX Direct for suede. Also please not that these shoes tend to run a bit big. Don't be surprised if you end up buying a size or half size smaller than you might expect.
