Molly’s Shoes & Socks Item# D6696 $14
"Molly’s outfits will be complete when she puts on her black patent-leather shoes with straps that easily fasten closed. The shoes come with white anklets, white socks with red trim, and red-and-white argyle socks."
These socks will come in very handy for Molly and other girls. Well, except that those argyle socks are just like the ones in her Underwear Set and I never have found much use for those.
The shoes velcro close now, which is okay, but kind of un-accurate and cheap. They look just like the ones from Samantha's Shoes & Socks Set, except they are 1/8" shorter.
The shoes are extremely tight on my PM Molly and she can not get them on at all if she's wearing the socks. So she's going to wear Samantha's and Samantha can wear hers!
I bought this set for my PM Molly. The shoes are very tight, as mentioned by AmericanGirlRescue -- I've found that they're tight even on Mattel dolls. They fit best without socks, but I can manage to get the shoes on over the socks with the red trim.
Trying to get the shoes on resulted in bending the shoes, and since they're patent, they crease badly. Just trying them on made the shoes look very well loved. Even though I can get them on and fasten them, they look awkward. Perhaps they're not that much better than Molly's default plastic Mary Jane shoes.
The socks are nice to have around though. As for the shoes, well, I bought a pair of non-AG Mary Jane shoes that fit well on both PM and Mattel dolls.
Grade: C The shoes fail, and the socks are decent, but well, they're just socks.

I have the PM version with snaps. Kind of annoying-- one of the shoes has a slightly fatter, shorter strap, and the other has a longer and thinner strap. I don't think I've ever used the red socks in the 12+ years I've had this set.
I like this set, though, because the other socks (the white ones) are quite versatile, and the mary janes are better than the cheap plastic ones Molly comes with.
The shoes and socks are a nice set. They are shiny black patent Mary Janes with three different pairs of socks. The boring white pair, red rims on white (same as the birthday set socks), and the red argyle ones. My personal favourite is the argyle ones, which when paired with the Molly's Christmas dress look exceptionally festive. The shoes fit alright, but the right strap needs pulling to close, and on the left the toes poke the top of the shoe.
