Girls' Ally Buckle Mary Jane
will not purchase again
I got these for my daughter for school last year and they seemed to hold up ok. They got scratched up quickly, but did not fall apart so I had her keep wearing them. They probably lasted a total of 6 months wearing them about 4 days per week. I had to buy new ones for March thru June. This year we bought the same kind in a larger size. Well, it's been 2-1/2 months and they are unwearable anymore. The front bottom piece has peeled off about 1/3 of the way and toes are starting to pop thru the bottom fabric. I would rather pay 2x as much for a shoe that will hold up thru the whole year than this price when I have to replace them every 3 months!

I brought these shoes for my daughter to wear to church after the other shoes that I purchased a higher price she quickly outgrew. I have been satisfied with the shoes even though she does not wear them but once a week. I know at a cheap price I had expected the shoes to tear up about now but they are still in good condition

These shoes are just perfect with everything, such a classic. Dress them up or down. We have been buying these for the past 3 years everytime she grows out of a pair. Have every color, and this shoe is worn everyday. Thanks Payless for such a nice shoe.

Affordably priced dress code shoe!
I would recommend trying on the shoe to get the right size. If it is too small it seems to pinch in the heel. If it is too big it will blister the back of ankle/foot.
The price is affordable (just under $10) for kids with growing feet!

Perfect price for quality
These shoes are perfect for one-time use or infrequent occasions such as Holidays or school assembly. I would not recommend this shoe as a uniform as it is not supportive enough for everyday use. Worn once a week, I would only expect these shoes to last 3 or 4 months. I originally purchased them for my daughter for Easter. They are nice enough to dress up and casual enough to wear with everyday clothing. When she started to wear them more often, they wore down pretty quickly. If you are looking for a quality shoe, go for the shoes that are about 5 dollars more at Payless. These are comfortable enough but in my opinion the quality is lower than I am used to with Payless. The sole of the shoe is falling off of her second pair and she is very gentle on shoes.

Not worth it-soles separated from shoe@toes in 1wk
Bought this style a few months back - inexpensive shoe just in white for Easter, and expected my then 3-1/2 yr old to grow out of it before much wear. She actually loved them, and wore them until one of the soles started pulling away from the front toe on one of the shoes. Figured it was worth the price because she got a ton of wear out of them before they started falling apart, so I bought another pair a week ago. I liked this specific style because they wore pretty well, were light and flexible, and best of all, my little one who likes to go barefoot rather than even wear sandals because her feet get 'hot' absolutely loved them, so I knew she'd keep them on. Unfortunately, this pair didn't last a week - she came home from school today and the soles at the toes of both shoes were detached up to an inch back from the toe tip. Not an 'incredible value' at all - children's shoes at this age should wear out at least around the same time they grow out of them, not barely a week after purchase. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
