I sent these back. I bought them in late 2007, thinking that by "plastic" AmericanDreams meant a soft, flexible plastic, which I was more than willing to overlook. However, when I got them, they were in fact a hard plastic, like what you would find on a barbie toy. After cramming my PM doll's foot into them I noted the beige was wrinkled in ways that it looked like in a short time it would be peeling off the faoundation fabric like paint. UUGGGGHHHH!!! As a side note, the socks were perfect, but since they came with the shoes, I sadly had to kiss them bye-bye, too. Here's hoping I'll find an older version on EBay that's a lot nicer.
