These sandals are fun and practical. My daughter loves them and I don't worry about stubbed toes. Schools also prefer the closed toes, so she gets lots of wear out of them. They are a go-to shoe for lots of walking on a hot day.

After having tried numerous shoes for my son's wide feet we finally found sandals that fit him , are comfortable, durable, and meet the criteria for cool in his world "It has camo print!" The best feature about these sandals is that they are totally adjustable! At the ankle, at the back of the ankle, and across the top of the foot! They are easy to adjust with Velcro fasteners and so my son can readily adjust as needed. If you have difficulty finding good quality summer trekking and water sandals that will actually fit your child - especially if they have wide feet - look no further! These are great and well worth the price!

A lot of vertical space above the toes. Feels cheap. Heel does not come up high enough.

These are great shoes! My son loves these and gets many compliments on them. I love the Velcro on for the laces since they are always way too long. Velcro on these keeps the long laces in place. And of course, Zappos' super overnight delivery!

My son requested this sandal specifically - he had a pair last year to tromp around at nature camp, hiking, and cities. we tried on several other sandals, including Merrell's and another Jambu sandal, but ended up back with these. My son's feet are on the narrower side of medium and he had a somewhat high instep, he also doesn't like shoes with a wide or loose toe area. He is very active, climbing, jumping, and exploring everything. These shoes fit great, and I can throw them in the washer and they come out great.

My son loves these shoes. I bought them as water shoes so he could swim in the lake but they are more like sneakers and I was surprised at how heavy they are. The tread is awesome and he plays outside in these shoes. I was a little disappointed in their weight because I think they are too heavy to swim in but he is enjoying them and wearing them as sneakers. They would be perfect for boating or kayaking (which he also enjoys).

These sandals are more like sneakers and my 5yr old son loves them! The green/yellow color is super bright, so it's great for the summer. They are waterproof and very comfortable. You also don't have to deal with any velcro issues, like collecting lent in the washer or mulch from the playground. We are very happy with these shoes.

I bought two pairs of these in a size 13 for my 2 children. One child has a narrow foot, and this shoe was find. The other child has a wider foot, and she got blisters the first time she wore them. The shoe fit well, but the straps were rough and just rubbed her the wrong way inside her arch. Although these are really cute shoes, and they are fine now that she has broken them in, I'm going back to Keens next summer.

I have an active 5-year-old boy, and I live in Florida, so closed-toe sandals with good support are always on my radar, no matter what time of year. Loved the styling on these -- even my son thought they were cool, and he's the kind of kid who you have to beg and plead to try on new shoes. He hates change. He eagerly put them on. A couple hours later, after wearing them around the house, he abandoned them because they rubbed the back of his foot wrong and made him bleed! There's an area of rough stitching in the middle of the rise on the back of the foot. Too bad. Guess it's back to Keen for us.

Loved the shoe! The length was great, but it was very wide in the heel. Sadly had to return and try a different brand.

These looked adorable and the heel area seemed to be constructed in such a way as to not cause blisters like so many water sandals have done to my daughters heels. However, they are huge. They seem to be at least a full size larger than expected. We'd ordered three other pairs of similar, same-sized sandals (kids 4) at the same time and these were, by far, the largest of the bunch. So, back they went and a different pair stayed.

The sandals fit me great but a little big but otherwise great. I measure a 2.5 and ordered a 4. Turned out it was a little big. We got tricked because Nike runs small. We should have gotten a 3. But they do run smaller than Tevas and Keens. Overall the sandals were great. They are great in design and I loved the velcro tab to stick the lace cinch to. In my opinion the Jambu is a lot better than Keens and Tevas.

The style is adorable! When I got these shoes (about 2 months ago) they instantly gave my daughter blisters. We would let her blisters heal and then try again hoping to break them in and she still can't wear them without blistering. It's too bad! There were no reviews before I got them and am glad to see multiple reviews now. Unfortunately, we have to get her another pair of summer athletic shoes.

Cute shoes. But be careful. The back comes up really high and it cut into the back of my daughter's ankles.

Very cute, flexible and soft insole. This shoe runs really large. I had ordered a half size smaller because of reviews that I read but this shoe is still a whole size to large. I'm thankful that Zappos is so wonderful to deal with returns.

My 8yo daughter measures a 2.5 and I bought these in a 3. They fit perfectly and look SO cute. She's worn them about a month and, so far, they don't have the bad smell that I couldn't get ride of, with her Keens. The style is so pretty and works well with most of her school and play clothes. The coral is a medium, orangey coral.

I own a pair of Jambu's that I love so I wan't to try these for my daughter but they were way too big so we returned them. I'm not sure she would have like the strap across the top.

I bought 2 pairs and both kids came home from school bare foot carrying their shoes in their hands, both complaining of blisters especially on the back of the ankle. They wear socks with them now and don't have a problem but I'm hoping the shoes will get worn in enough that they can wear them comfortably without socks this summer. The shoes are just as pictured, and really cute because they work as a sandal and can be dressed up but they are also suitable as tennis shoes for running and playing and even water play. They're like Keens or Tevas but a bit prettier. My kids are required to wear tennis shoes for gym class 2 days a week and these are the only shoes that they can wear (besides their Nikes) that I don't have to worry about what day it is. The shoes are also Eco friendly as they are partially made from recycled rubber and the packaging they come in is recycled materials as well. One box of shoes came with a little card that you can actually plant and a carrot will grow. Although this made one of the girls sad because their box didn't have the seed card. All in all I love the concept and the shoes are adorable. I wish the execution was a little better.

Ordered these for a trip out west...for my daughter to have for short hikes, stream crossings, etc. Fit great and super comfy. She has already worn them several times with no issues and many other sandals give her blisters. Also, the closed toe means it is acceptable for school.

We can't use these, gave my daughter horrible blisters. I was thinking that the supposedly soft material would prevent this issue but nope, it's not soft enough. They might be ok with socks but would look ridiculous. For the price I can't recommend.

So disappointed. The strap was too long across the foot and can't be adjusted. I've read this complaint before but took a chance anyway. My little one was so sad to return them. Too bad, such a cute concept.
