These are made with 100% black leather. Size 4 and up will come with soft ToughTek soles that are water, slip and heat resistant.
In order to get accurate sizing please measure the child's foot from heel to biggest toe and add .25"-.5" for growing room (personal preference).
You are able to now upgrade to a harder rubber sole that is still flexible. The sole will be sewn onto a leather sole for double durability. Search for the listing "Rubber Sole Upgrade" and add it to your cart.
