Great little shoes, light weight therefore easy for an early walker. Easy to slip on since the shoe is flexible and the rubber stretches to get it over his heel. And super cute!

My kids have gone through several pairs of natives. In the past, they have worn the Jefferson. The Jeffersons were tight on the arch for both my son and daughter. The Verona fits so much better. The Verona slips on with ease. They never get blisters with these shoes either.

My daughter wore these as a pre-walker, so I can't speak to support or how well she could walk in them. However, they stayed on her feet (unlike other flip flops and sandals that she could pull off), while allowing her sweaty feet some breathability. I loved the look compared with crocs, and will be purchasing these again for her now (at 2.5 years old) that they are back in stock!

We love these shoes! This is our third summer in Natives. They stay on better than Crocs and are less of a tripping hazard, but slip on just as easily. They look much cuter too. They hold up well.

Bought these for my preschooler to where to summer camp. Perfect for her everyday activities! They can get wet without staying "wet" and she loves that she can put them on herself! I bought yellow and pink ones! Highly recommend for preschoolers.

Super cute. Run a little smaller and wider. I found the Jefferson style to be better for my son's narrow feet.

Great summer shoes for either the water or just every day wear and tear! Bought these for our 4 year old twins and 2 year old. They are great shoes, durable, easy to clean and versatile. The sizing is a bit tricky (run about 1/2 size big) but otherwise we love them. The kids don't trip on them at all and the shoes are fairly easy to put on (we stretch/pull out on the back heel and they pop on). Love them!

I bought these for my 21 month old, one size larger than her tennis shoes based on the sizing measurements listed. They fit perfectly and she loves them! The first pair we tried started separating at the sole within a week; I contacted Zappos and they immediately sent a replacement pair, which we have had no problems with (great customer service experience). My daughter can put them on by herself, they seem comfortable for her (she would let me know if not), and are great for the summer (no socks needed, can get wet). Overall great purchase.

These are darling, perfect summer shoes...UNTIL, after just a couple months of wear they SHRUNK. Not just a little, but at least a size and a half. All from sitting for a few hours at the back doorstep in the summer sun. Granted, it was a day in the mid-80s, but seriously?! For a pair of kids summer shoes to not be able to sit outside for a few hours without completely being ruined? My son can't fit them on his feet anymore. I am beyond disappointed!

Not made for narrow feet! My daughter usually wears a size 11 shoe. Bought both the 10 and 11 since some reviews had suggested sizing down. The size 11 was huge! And the 10, while the length was good, was wide and slipping on her heel. I'm bummed because these are such cute shoes and she really loved them, but unfortunately, I will be returning them both.

One of the best purchases I have made for my son. He is 16 months old and loves splashing in the puddles as much as the next toddler. These are perfect for outdoor play and easy to slip on and off. I love that I can easily rinse them off, and so far they have lived up to their claim of not becoming smelly. Once he outgrows them, I will definitely be purchasing a new pair.

These shoes fit one size small! Arghh...ordered them for my toddler and waited a whole week, then when they arrived, they were too small :( so now I have to send them back and get one size bigger! Had read the reviews on size but its not true that they fit "true to size"! so frustrating!

I love these shoes. I saw them on a friend's kids and thought they were cute and perfect for summer weather and water play. I bought them for both my kids and they wear them all the time. They are apparently very comfortable; my kids can easily take them on and off by themselves (even my 3 year old), and they are perfect for running through sprinklers, going to the pool, or just hanging out in the yard.

We love these shoes! My boys think they are very comfortable and I love that they are easily washed, can get wet, and don't make their feet stink like other sandals. They do run large. We needed one size down from our usual size in stride rite shoes.

These may seem pricey at first glance, but they are worth it! My daughter is on her third pair in the last 18 months. They have the ease of a flip flop, but with the fit and safety of a shoe. I own two pairs myself!

My toddler loves these shoes but they are not holding up very well. Pretty pricey for a shoe that is not lasting more than a few months.

My son wore these for a week to play in water tables at day camp. He thought they were comfortable, and even commented they were a little loose. Then this weekend he wore them to the pool for the first time and left them out in the sun while he swam. After two hours, he could not put one of the shoes back on. When the rubber got hot, the opening of the shoe shrank and is misshapen. Very disappointing for the price of the shoe.

Unfortunately these shoes warped for us! My son wore them 2 times, and the 3rd day we went to put them on and couldn't put his foot in them. They had warped/shrunk in the son. Very unfortunate because they would have been perfect for playing in the water all summer.

These are great, no socks needed. However they run very small. My son is an 8 in every pair of shoes he wears and I had to exchange these for a 9.

They def run a size small but are nice and wide for my sons fat toddler feet. Easy to get on and off. His feet do tend to sweat in them and they sometimes slip climbing at the park but overall they are a great easy to clean shoe. And cute! Will get again!

My son only wore these twice and the top of the shoe ripped… Love the look and concept, but they didn't work out for my little one.
