We have always bought the Gap or Old Navy knock off versions of these and loved them, so this year I decided to spring for the real deal. Though these are nice, I hate to say it but I like the cheap versions better. These don't fit my son nearly as well and the backs are so low they slip off his feet. Sorry to say I won't buy again.

Love Native kids shoes, my son had a pair of the Jefferson style and wore them every day last spring and summer. This style seemed like an upgrade from the rubber shoe...and it is...kind of. The fabric is great, water friendly, breathable, flexible and his feet don't sweat like they did in the Jeffersons, but on the insides where the sides meet the bridge of the shoe (excuse my poor shoe anatomy) there are hard seams that have caused small blisters on my son's foot. I had tried a size larger initially - but they were so big they flopped on his heel so that wouldn't have helped the blister prevention. Native shoes - make the inner seam flat! I saved the situation by removing the insole to give his foot more room. And now I wonder if I could've stuck with the larger size and put an extra insole inside to size it down, the way pediped does...hmm...maybe next time.

My five year old daughter absolutely loves these. I have to tell her that she can not wear them all the time but needs to wear other shoes that I have bought her. They are durable. There is an adequate arch support. The soft rubber is so comfortable. They stay on better than Crocs.

Love these...they look so cute on my 3 year old but they do run a size big. She's a 9 and we got an 8.

Love these for my 4 boys. They are easy to put on and even easier for me to clean! Giving 4 stars only because one of my boys got blisters, but the rest were fine.

We ordered these for our 4 year old son and he loves them. We live in Texas and needed a shoe that was lightweight, breathable and water proof. These are perfect and they look good too. He even wears them to ride his bike, play at the park, wear to church, etc. they can be worn with casual or sporty attire.

My kid's feet stink, so I bought these shoes. (Also, I saw a "cool kid" at the Ritz-Carlton wearing them.) So far, no stink. And looking as cool as a cucumber in the process. These do seem a tad wide, so just a note. Skip socks and you should be fine. Excellent summer shoes!

My son wears a size 2 in Nike Tennis shoes, I had to order a size 13. They ran 2 sizes too big for us but the 13 worked and we love the shoes!

Very fun and comfy shoe, purple has a glimmer/shine, only issue is they run at least 1 size big. My 5 yo takes a 12 in girls sneakers, she is wearing a size 10 in these, which also have room for her to grow.

These gave my son blisters on both feet within 1.5 hours of wearing them. They're really cute, but I highly recommend putting your child in socks to wear these, at least at first. Hoping that this will resolve the issue for us!

These are amazing! I need them in my size! She absolutely loves them and wants to wear them all the time! They are super soft and comfortable and very easy to clean. Basically the perfect toddler shoes!

My 5 year old child wears a 12.5 or 13. We tried (and exchanged) the 13s, 12s an 11s. my son's heel slipped on all of them. Fit wise, the 12's were likely best, so sizing down a full size is recommended. Bummer.

My seven year old is no longer into Crocs and these seemed like a good option. They are as described and they are very cute. My daughter likes them and they seem easy to clean.

These shoes are a favorite in our house! They run about a size to a size and a half too big. In the beginning they have a tendency to rub the pinkie toes as well. Nothing a little band-aid can't fix and it stops rubbing after about a week of break in time.

These are my son's favorite shoes! He's on his third pair now. Easy to put on and take off. Very practical. I just wish they were somehow more supportive.

My little ones love these! They can slip them on themselves and its sometimes hard to convince them to take them off. My kids are on the messier side and these are shoes are so easy to wash.

Great new style from Native. All of the practicality, super light weight but more of a fabric vs. their previous EVA style, that is washable with a washable insole. I have these in adults as well and love them!

My four year old loves these shoes! He has very wide feet and typically we can only buy Stride Rites in wide. But the sandal selection in wide is limited (and some quite unattractive). I decided to give these a try as shoes for the beach and pool. They fit great, are cute, and comfortable! What more can you want? We did have to send the originals back and get a size down.

My six year old lives in his Crocs during the summer. I purchased these for the transition between spring and summer and he loves them! Wears them every day! Great purchase. Looking to buy more colors.

Great shoe for active kids! Ordered this for my 8 year old son, and right away he said they are "so comfy!" They look great on, the color is vibrant and the glow-in-the-dark toe and sides of the shoe are a hit. Not to mention the ease of these shoes...no socks needed; perfect for warmer weather! The other reviews about sizing 1 size down are correct. My son wears a size 3 in dress shoes and I ordered the size 2 in this and it fit perfect (with a little room to grow). We are sold.

In the past I've purchased Crocs for my daughter but now that she's out of toddler sizes I didn't like any of the choices. I found these and decided to give them a try. I am thrilled with them. My daughter is a size 13.5 and, based on other reviews, I purchased a 13. They were comfortable right out of the box and my daughter opts to wear them every day. They are extremely versatile and look cute with nearly everything. I also love how easy they are to clean. I just take a little dish soap and water to them and they look brand new. These will definitely become my go to shoe from now on as I will be buying a pair every year!
