What happened to the velcro closure???
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2020
What a disappointment! I should have read some of the other reviews more closely because it has already been mentioned that in some instances these shoes do not come as pictured. This is exactly what happened in my case with this December 2020 purchase. Instead of receiving the sneakers with the velcro closure as shown in the product description, I got the ones with the laces. The only reason I purchased these particular sneakers to begin with was so that my first grader would not have to deal with the laces in the morning and in school. Obviously, these are going back. It is not clear whether only the toddler sizes are the velcroed versions, so keep in mind that if you're specifically buying these for a young school-aged kid and care about the velcros, buy some other shoes as a backup in case these arrive with laces. I'm hoping Amazon will change the pictures appropriately to reflect what the shoe actually looks like. Total waste of time on this purchase... and finding a good replacement is difficult.
