I bought Liv a size up and she has no problem walking in them. I figured that if they make it through the fall, I will really get my money's worth. I ordered red ones and black ones for me but I think I will keep the red. For Liv, I kept the magenta boots.
When Liv grows out of these, I will definitely pass them down to my niece (who has a fantastic shoe collection thanks to her big sis and her cousin) or recycle them. What a fantastic idea!!
