Sketchers Twinkle Toes. How is the quality?

DD picked out some shoes online for the school year. Most of them are sketchers twinkle toes. I've never bought sketchers. 


These are a few she picked out. She would still be getting a good pair of tennis shoes. I'm considering getting her a couple pairs of these, but if the quality of the shoe is poor I may knock it down to 1 pair.

I got some for dd a bit ago and the sucked. The backs would slide down and they were heavy. It was just a mess.

It depends on how hard she is on shoes.  My oldest dd has gotten Sketchers before(not twinkle toes) and within 4-5 months they are worn out. I will say we have yet to find shoes she doesn't destroy.  My youngest can have a pair of shoes last until she grows out of them and they still look new.

My DD had the zebra pair and I'd never buy them again. They didn't last very long (the soles came apart.) The next pair were Converse and she still has them a year later.

I'd show her some converse pretty much the same style and great quality

That's what I'm worried about. She completely wore out a pair of nice Reebok tennis shoes within 5 months last year. Thanks!

Thank you! I'm going to have her look at some converse.

never had a problem with the quality but they are heavy.  have her try a pair before committing to multiple pairs.

I stick to nike with the kids. Sometimes ASICs for running. I like good support in their shoes.

My daughter outgrew hers before they fell apart. She had the one with the disc in the sole so she could spin like a ballerina.
