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 awesome shoes. Extremely light in weight. Comfortable from day one. Wear in and out of water. Get a lot of compliments.

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.

Purchased this shoe less than a month ago and the soles are already worn in two places. I haven't even paid the credit card bill yet and the shoes are worn out. I would not recommend this product.

I had high hopes for this shoe, but it failed to deliver. The biggest issue is that the rubber shrank dramatically after having been in my car for a couple days. Although it was summer, this should not be enough to shrink a shoe by approximately 25%. The size had changed so dramatically, I was unable to wear them. For a shoe that is essentially designed for warmer weather, you would think this would have been thought through by the design team.

The kids LOVE these! These are hard to find - Thank you Zappos! These are great for boys and girls and they even look cute with shorts, jeans. If you find your size - order them.

I like these shoes. Chose them for kayaking and covertly wearing to work. Work is a pretty casual office, jeans are acceptable. They are comfortable with or without socks and are stylish either way. Arches are higher than any of my other shoes. These are narrow, but so are my feet. Love the colors and how light these are. I can wear them all day, but I only wear them twice a week. Happy to find something similar to Crocs, but that actually fit and look great. I suggest these for water activities, especially kayaking.

I work in an art studio with concrete floors and since I bought these shoes, my feet have never hurt. Besides feeling good at the end of the day I can clean them in a bucket and they are dry by morning. I also use them for working in a garden and same deal. Superior to the Croc.

I'm a size 11 in every shoe but a 10 in these. I got the black Jeffersons which look good with or without socks, I wore without socks and walked/danced about 12 miles (Fitbit) in 100 degree heat and only had one small blister on a big toe but I have kind of wide big toes and the blister was better in a day so can't really fault the shoe. I got these things wet and sandy and all things and they wash up fine and don't smell bad. Noticed the crease thing after a couple wears but I like sneakers to look broken in and not brand new so that didn't bother me. Great pair for music festival/pool party weekend and also quick slip ons for errands.

These are really nice shoes. I got one 2 years ago. I tried to fit in because it's size 7m. Really agonizing of the comfortability of that size. My right size is 8m. Now I found it here...feel so good again. Thank you Zappos.
