Courtney can lace up her white high-top sneakers when she’s dancing to her favorite songs. They have hot pink laces and accents on the toes, plus straps at the ankle. SKU#: GRN52 Price: $16
AG's shoe offerings often leave me wishing for more. The quality has declined significantly lately. But, that is NOT the case here! These shoes are absolutely adorable and superb quality! The laces are sewn in place, so no struggling to tie impossible tiny laces. The velcro straps are historically accurate and lay flat. The shoes are easy to get on and off and fit well with or without socks. The rubber soles are just like the pair I used to have as a kid. Really solid item and super well done by AG. This is probably my favorite of Courtney's clothing/mix and match items.

These sneakers are SO cute! They have two velcro straps at the top of the shoe and are very easy to slip on and off the doll. The pink laces don't untie (at least, mine seem to be tacked down). Small warning here, they feel like the would fray easily, and the ends of the laces on this pair did not have glue on them (though the box photo pair does have glue). I made sure to glue the ends of the laces before putting the shoes on my doll.
The soles of the shoes are the nice soft vinyl/plastic with the molded designs like the higher quality American Girl shoes. I do think the very soft vinyl fabric used for the top of the high tops is the kind that will end up drying and peeling five or ten years from now, but that's not uncommon on some AG shoes.
These are really adorable and definitely a fun pair. The $16.00 price tag seemed a bit steep to me, but with a Rewards certificate, these were a must have!
^^^Oh I’m glad to see my brothers and I weren’t the only ones that pulled their socks over their jeans and cords. I think my brothers did it for more functional reasons when on their bikes but I just thought it looked cool.
These shoes are awesome. I have been waiting for a pair of these for my 58 who has been my 80’s doll. They do not disappoint at all. Very well made and authentic looking to the Reebok’s I had when I was a kid. I bought two pairs and both are perfect. A definite must for your 80’s doll. A+++

I agree with other reviewers and think these shoes are pretty great!
The bottoms have that real shoe rubber feel which I really like. The laces are permanently tied in bows which makes it easy to have them looking nice. They close with 2 velcro tabs in the front. Most of the shoe is made of a shiny faux leather material, but the high top part at the top, around the sides and backs of the ankle are a different non shiny, puffy material.
