I bought these shoes for my six year old son. I had him try them on and they fit great. They run slightly smaller (about half a size) than expected but they still fit him okay. The first thing he asked was if he is allowed to wear them to school. We love the orange and black colors because it helps the shoes to stand out if needed in a crowd. They are very light weight so I think they will be good for him for summer, too, without making his feet sweat too much.
