These shoes are just what we needed for our son now going to a school that requires formal shoes. They meet the guidelines of ‘leather upper’ despite not being leather. Great room in the toe and easy on and off for a busy boy.
My experience is that the “Citee junior” is so good that I want to share all about them! The shoe is resistant to water, is wide and flexible and easy to take on and off with the elastic laces. It’s not always easy to get the children to use their new shoes, but this time the children wants to use them all the time! One of my children has a wide foot and a high wrist and my other kid has the opposite – yet, the shoe fits both of them. The shoe has an insole that you can remove if you want more contact with the ground or if you want to extend the usage time. The shoe is vegan and made out of microfiber. It is easy to wipe them of with a damp cloth to make them look like new again. My experience is that the outsole from Freet has a very good grip on the ground . The shoe comes with the sizes 30-36. My kids wear size 30(18,6 cm)to a 18 cm foot and size 32(19,9cm) to a 19,5 cm foot. My reccomendation is that you have 4 mm to maximum 8 mm bigger shoe than the foot. I have tried many other brands, but Freet shoes is a must have in our home! This is the perfect shoe for school and everyday usage and a plus is that they are very good looking! I have no complaints about this shoe, everything is positive!
