I bought these for my 7 year old and my 4 year old. The very first time my daughters wore them (on different days), they broke. The front button came off and since there is no other closure (like a zipper), they don't stay together. You might think that the buttons are decorative and the boots would work without them, but that is not the case. The boots aren't wearable without the button being securely fastened. If it had happened to just one pair, I might think my daughter was too hard on the boots, but both of them the very first time they were worn seems like they are just poor quality. I can try to sew the button back on but feel like they shouldn't fall apart that easily. What a waste of money!
