My averagel kids shoe budget is $10 max (most of them are a penny LOL) but I typically prefer a more durable shoe. These have the look but not much else. After trying them on once they already have creases in the patent. And they are obviously made of plastic.
It's a velcro closure so even a small child can put them on themselves. Note how sloppy the stitching and the glue is. That being said, she says they are comfortable and she already has matching authentic Valentino Rockstud sunglasses from Century 21 ($15!) to match.
My advice when ordering your own inspired Rockstuds for your girls is to go to eBay for the best prices (trust me I looked) and choose a seller who promises to ship them in the shortest period of time. I got mine from the seller, wugaonian. Honestly, they are all the same plastic shoe. For sizing, measure the insole of your girl's shoes to get the best fit. Ella wears a US 1 but took a size 34 in these. They do have a few variations (I saw a sandal, a lace version, a rounded toe...) but my dearest daughter insisted on something with a pointed toe. Just like Momma.
I'm linking a few pairs of red Rockstuds (real ones for you!) should you NEED them at retail :)
