These shoes are great. They are sturdy, dry fast and fit my son's wide (fat) feet. He likes to wear them, and they don't rub. I also like that they are closed toe so he can wear them to "water day" at daycare. They seem well made, so hopefully they will get us through the summer!

I got those shoes for ;y toddler when she was already a 5W. Since she grew up and I loved the shoes so much, I got them in 6W as well. Those shoes fit perfectly, let little toddlers toes to breath and are very easy to add to any toddler's outfit

I was disappointed to find that the elastic "shoe laces" are not adjustable, they're pretty much decoration, I had assumed there'd be some kind of toggle, like on Keen shoes. I picked these for my child who has pronated feet, I was looking for something supportive, but the fit around his foot is on the loose side, which is not ideal for his type of feet. It's debatable if we will keep these, which is disappointing, considering the price, and Stride Rite's reputation for children's shoes, which is supposed to be pretty good. I feel they have failed in these shoes.

So far, these shoes have been great for my daughter. They provide great coverage of her toes so they are daycare approved but also have some vents, which help them dry and keep her feet cool in the heat. Only one issue I've noticed is that the ankle strap has given my daughter some red marks from friction (could be her chubby legs). Great shoe - highly recommend.

I wanted to love this shoe, but it started falling apart within the mere two weeks my 12-month-old wore them. They were cute, stylish, comfy, convenient, but wow! Strings and threads were popping up every day! They looked like he had walked miles in them when in reality he could barely walk. They were in such bad condition after 2-3 weeks, I refused to donate them to charity. I wouldn't want anyone's baby taking their first steps in those things. I will never buy Stride Rite again. They are not made as sturdy as they were when I was a kid. I am pleased with Zappos' customer service none the less.

My son loves these shoes! He loves telling people about them too. They are made for a boy that wants to play with water every time he steps outdoors which my son certainly does. Perfect shoe for an active almost-four-year-old.

These were perfect for my sons first pair of shoes. They are wide enough for his chunky little feet and go with everything. My only concern is they do come off easily. Maybe I don't have the strap tight enough, but they often fall off when he is crawling.

These would have been great if the velcro stayed put. My lil guy loves to run (he's 6), and after a month, these would constantly unvelcro whenever he started running hard. He has a wide foot, and it seems to me that if the straps were longer, they may have worked better. Perhaps these work great on narrow feet.

My son loves these shoes! They are stylish. The only problem is it's hard to get his foot in because the bungee cord closure cant be opened to make it wider (he doesn't have wide feet, maybe a high arch). But once his foot gets in he has plenty of room in the toe bed.

Tough to rate. My 4 year old son loved how these light up everywhere and looked like police cars. He also liked that he could put them on and off easily. Also he said his feet were comfy in them. However, his feet got a little steamy as they're not super breathy, which he didn't seem to mind. And what made him most upset was that the top velcro strap didn't stay stuck down, which really upset him, and would have annoyed me too. We ended up with the Skechers lava sold on Zappos, a little more in price but not much.

These were purchased for my grandson, who is at camp with his mom who works there. He can go from the lake, sand, dirt, etc easily. Shoes are comfortable and dry quickly. love them! Zappos not only had these shoes when so many others didn't, but the price was great. Also arrived quickly!

I ordered a pair for my toddler who has xw feet, unfortunately when I went to put them on him he couldn't even put his feet into them. They are very narrow.

My little guy took a few days to warm to the idea of these shoes with the collar extending a little higher on the ankle, but he absolutely loves these now and will not even wear sandals or summer shoes in the warmer weather. They look great (really handsome with his Cub Scout uniform) and have not shown any signs of wear or scuffs after six months of continuous wear. Two thumbs up on these, wish they made other colors!

This leather shoe is extremely cute on my toddler and I purchased it for warmer weather so she does not need to wear socks. She did not get them wet but the issue, however, is that after about a month they really started to smell horrible! I never knew that baby feet /shoes could be so smelly and cannot seem to clean the shoe (there are no removable insoles). Very disappointing because the odor is so bad they are unwearable.

My 10 month old has been using these shoes for a few weeks and they are working well. They go on easy and no blisters noted. They are easy to clean.

Caused blisters on both my daughter and son. They refuse to wear them. The fabric on them also takes over 24 hours to dry.

The style is very cute and I was excited for something other than Crocs; however, they caused blisters on both my daughter and son's feet. I do not recommend.

My 4 year old son loves his Natives but they kept on falling off so I was looking for a water shoe that he could tighten and wear daily almost as sneakers. These were perfect. They are secure on his feet, don't fall off and he can get them wet in the summer. I think they may run a bit big, I ordered two sizes and kept the smaller but so far he has no complaints with them and he wears them all day.

My 15-month-old son has been wearing these cute little sandals daily for about two weeks now. So far so good. He is able to walk and run in them without any trouble and seems to like wearing them. He's on the big side for his age and the size 5.5 XW we ordered are a good fit.

This style is more age appropriate style for older girls. But, the strap in the back is very narrow without any cushion like the toddler counter part had. This narrow strap is making a blister on my babies hill.
