Just like the other reviewer said the toe bed is too tight on top. Too bad they don't do half sizes as these boots were very comfortable everywhere else and really light!

I really wanted to like these boots but they felt really tight on the top of my foot. They fit perfectly lengthwise, but I think it was the interior lining that made it feel so restricted where the rubber part met the upper fabric. I returned these and got the Jimmy boots without the lining in the same size and they fit perfectly. As always, Zappos customer service made returning these boots super easy. Thanks guys!

I purchased these shoes for my trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I knew I needed a shoe for the beach, walking, and dancing and for the most part, they rocked! They're super cute on, almost a perfect fit just a little snug around my right pinky toe. Now my only gripe, which was pretty major for me is the sand gets caught in the shoe...wet sand = 10lbs of extra weight that I caught myself lugging around. I finally emptied out the sand and decided that it was best to wear them off the beach. These were my go to shoes, wore the heck out of them for 7 days.

These are great shoes. I wear them with long pants and people think I'm wearing regular 'Chucks'. They have better support and more cushion, though. I wear them in town but especially on the water. They are cool and extremely comfortable. I'm ordering a pair of the boat shoes next. highly recommend these great shoes! I would order a size smaller than you usually wear. I normally wear a 10 and it was too big even with socks. Returned it and got a 9 about a day later. Great service.

I own 4 pair of Native shoes. Which is to say, I love them. They are so light, comfortable and perfect to do almost anything in. Their one limitation, I think, is what many people buy them for: the beach. They are filled with holes, so if you are going near sand, loose dirt or debris, this is not the shoe. I like them best as an every day city shoe. They're easily washable, and they do stretch to fit your foot (the Jefferson is, at first, fairly narrow). I walk miles a day in Native shoes (in the city) and find that they do hold up well. They're foam, but seem durable. Also, although this company (which is determined to market these as hipster shoes) would be horrified: these shoes 100% solved my plantar fasciitis pain. Of course, people say Crocs do that, too, but I'd suffer for the rest of my life than wear Crocs. This is an inexpensive, and far more aesthetically pleasing, alternative.

Very comfortable, waterproof, easy on/off and they don't look like Crocs! I love these shoes. This is my second pair. I wore out the originals over about 2 years.

I love native shoes. Unfortunately they stopped producing the Hugo so I went with the Howard - I traveled for 2 months with them all over Europe from Iceland to Istanbul - never having to take them off crossing glaciers in Iceland, crossing rivers in Sicily, scaling the ancient city of Ephesus - they are champion shoes. Unfortunately they were a little tight! They are the same size as the Howard, but I thought after a bit of time they would stretch but they didn't. Still buying a new pair of Jeffersons this time as Natives are perfect for cycling. Best cheap shoe on the market!

First, I am HUGE fan of Native. And I love the look of this particular shoe. However, it has some problems, which I imagine that many people will find troublesome. 1. These are narrow. Like, seriously narrow. I have very narrow feet and these were tight. 2. The opening for one's foot is too big, and I just walk right out of these shoes. Also, the pair I received seemed to be two different sizes, as each shoe fit completely different. 3. This model does not have the same amount of cushion as most of the others; the sole is thinner, and thus, I find it to be WAY LESS comfortable than a model like the Miller. Obviously, these work for many people, but I also suspect many will encounter the same problems that I did. I LOVE the look, especially the print. But unfortunately, these don't cut the proverbial mustard.

It's mind-boggling how subject the concept of "comfortable shoe" is. To me, comfort means 1. extremely lightweight (I cannot stand heavy shoes) and 2. a little shock absorption. That's surprisingly hard to find -- and it's nearly impossible if one ventures outside of running shoes (which are, to me, mostly shockingly ugly). Plus, I want fun. Stylish. Awesome. Too much to ask? I think the Native Miller is fantastic, and meets all of the above criteria and then some. They weigh, for all intents and purposes, nothing. They are bouncy but not too bouncy. You can wash them. THEY ARE STYLISH. The only cons these shoes have is that the entire shoe line is narrow. The Millers are the widest, but they are not wide by any stretch of imagination. I have narrow feet and these are still snug (which is fine with me, but I am just offering a warning). To me, they fit fairly true to size. Warning, though: they will melt in the sun. I learned that the hard way with another pair. I left them on my deck in direct sunlight for a couple of hours, and that was the end. The company warns you about this, but it's tiny fine print. Overall, fantastic shoes that are a pleasure to wear.

Bought these to wear on a cruise with my dress pants (wish no white on soles) to eat in, etc so I could quickly change back into real cruise wear. I was with a bunch of old folks who live to dress up on the boat. I don't think one of 'em had brought a swim suit. Kind of sad really.

I bought these for a 4 day beach vacation. Great looking "water" shoes that are reminiscent of a pair of Vans, but water shoes are supposed to be far beyond form and need to focus on function and I do not believe that this is the case here. I read a great deal of reviews for these shoes prior to purchasing them and I was astounded by how different my experience with them actually was. Everyone says they run small, but small is an understatement. I usually wear an 8 or an 8.5, I purchased a size 8, as per everyone's recommendations but I should have gotten a size 9. Especially with the large rubber holes filling up with sand. Every mm that wasn't filled by my foot was filled by sand. On a 4 day vacation, I excitedly wore them my first day on the beach, got a blister on two toes, and couldn't stand to wear them again for more than 15 minutes at a time, rendering them a waste. They weren't even comfortable in the pool. I can't imagine who I would recommend these to except people who enjoy Crocs in dry climates.

Great water shoes. Very stylish and comfortable. Good for the beach or being by the pool. The only downside is that they don't come in half sizes. Bought these for my husband who wears 9.5. At first got him a 10 which was too big, so we exchanged it for a 9 and it fits him fine, not too tight.

These are the best summer, water shoes for kids. My 9 yr old has had 3 pairs in the last 3 summers. They are light weight, give the foot full support and coverage and very stylish. My daughter has 2 pairs! Love them!

I love these shoes! I fell in love with them after seeing an entire family wearing them in an airport somewhere - Mom, Dad and three kids all with different colors! I usually wear an 8.5 to a 9 and I ordered these in Mens 6/Ladies 8 and they fit perfectly. When I took them out of the box I thought "no way are these going to fit" - they looked too small, but they're not and they make my feet look smaller! I don't feel like they are narrow as others have said. Maybe my feet are narrow, but if so I've never needed narrow shoes before. My only concern with them is that my feet sweat quite a bit and these certainly have nothing to wick away any moisture, but an insert could solve that. Very, very adorable! Hope they come out with more colors for adults.

I own several Natives & I highly recommend them as a good sailing shoe. Good sole grip & the material does not hold smells (from salt water)- make them ideal for kayaking, canoeing & for beach days, too. While I often wear them all day on-the-water, I think their lack of arch support & sweat-factor make them not ideal for a long day of walking in the big city.

Super comfortable, fits perfectly. I ordered the Paolo in black, and it looks very contemporary and cool. I hope they continue making these, as I'll want more of them in different colors.

I bought these shoes for my husband so he could have a pair of shoes that he could wear anywhere and still look stylish. He loves these and says they are so comfortable. They are so easy to clean too.

I bought these as a stylish alternative to Crocs. I'm pleased overall. I love crocs for how wide they are but Natives are a good compromise. Same cushy feel. Snug fit.

I love these! They are an easy summer slip on that's much sportier than a flip flop (I can run in these). I like them with shorts and jeans.They are very comfortable. They do create a bit of a sweaty fit, but the shoes can be rinsed out and my feet can be rinsed off, so I'm not bothered by this! I've had a number of questions about them, and comments to the tune of "they're like a really cute Croc!" One of my feet is on the wide side, while the other is average, and I find the fit very comfortable.
