Good sandal - Well made, they don't pinch your toes, and are overall a good sandal, but a little too flat. I wish they had a little bit of cushioning.

I love these shoes! The sizing is very odd though - I ordered a youth size 6 which fits my normally women's size 8.5 foot. The quality doesn't seem as high as I remember from the past, but the look and memories these shoes provide more than make up for it!

Good flat sandal - This is a great shoe. I’ve been wearing them since I was little. Sizing is odd; the youth 4 is a women's 6 I think. The "tan" was sort of a funny rust color, kind of misleading, but they are so cute I kept them anyway and oddly enough they match most outfits.

Like the Shoes - The shoes are not exactly true to the size a size 6 in youth is a SMALL womens 8, so be careful when you order. They arent very comfortable after walking in them for a while. They dont have ANY support so you feel every bumb and rock on the ground. They are a fashion yes this summer though. Sometimes it hurts to be cute. Enjoy!

I loved wearing these as a kid, but they have not been available in stores for some years. I did a quick search and sure enough I found them here. I found them to be true to size and still just as comfortable as ever.

I've worn saltwaters every summer since I can remember. The last pair I bought lasted 7 years of near constant wear. If only more retailers carried adult sizes.

Amazing right out of the box. Cute and comfortable. True to size. The black is basic, but it goes with everything of course. Next season I'll definitely want a more fun color. Planning to wear these for travel in Europe and I think they'll be great.

Brands I'd also recommend: hasbeens, bensimones

These sandals are pretty much adorable for little ones and moms. For women I would recommend that you go a size down. There is very generous footing in these sandals in the front and width, and the leather will also give and stretch over time. I adore these on my daughter and will probably get her a new pair every year as she grows! For kids, I would recommend staying true to their size. For instance right now in spring, my daughter's shoe size is 7 toddler. Her Saltwater's are a 7 with plenty of wiggle room and room to grow for the entire summer. They go with everything and I am excited to wear them with shorts, casual summer dresses, bangles, cross body bags, etc. Love!

I have wide feet so I have struggled buying sandals my whole life! My struggles are over! They hurt the first few days I wore them but now they feel great and my feet actually look normal in them.

Great shoes. Wore them as a kid and still a good choice as an adult. A little more expensive to buy through Zappos rather than Amazon but Zappos had color choice.

So comfortable - I got them a size too big since I'm pregnant and my feet will probably be swelling a lot this summer, and while they have plenty of room, they don't look like they are too big.

Just got these today - whoa, that's some fast delivery, Zappos! Love them. I'm already thinking about the next color I should order. Because I usually wear a 8 1/2, I first ordered a 9, thinking I was playing it safe. Wrong. Had to return, but the 8 is perfect. (The box they came in has a little sticker inside that says "should not be oversized when fitted.") Thank goodness for Zappos' incredible return policy.

These are my favorite summer sandals of all time. They are very comfortable and go with everything I own. The leather is very soft and only gets better each time I wear them.

I love these sandals. They take me a few wears to break in, and then are the most comfortable and versatile summer shoes I have. I love that I can wear them in the rain and they dry out no worse for the wear. This is my second pair, and I could see myself collecting even more colors!

I love these sandals! I purchased these to wear to a beach vacation, and they have since become my go-to shoes for the summer. They are casual, yet nice enough looking to wear to work if you're office isn't too formal. I wore these in and out of the ocean with no problems; the water and sand didn't seem to damage them in the slightest. The sole of the shoe is pancake flat, so you don't want to wear these if you have to walk too far. That said, at work I have about a 10 minute walk to and from my car and a walk of that distance doesn't bother me. I almost always wear a women's size 8.5, and since these shoes only come in full sizes went with the 9. The straps fit just right, although they have loosed a little since I first got them. But I suspect if I would have gone with the 8 my toes would have gone over the end of the sole. Just as a funny aside, I showed these to my mom after I bought them and she said she used to buy them for me every summer when I was little. I thought they looked familiar!

Looked too masculine for a woman's sandal in brown. Might have better luck in a different color/style? The shoe was definitely comfortable though and I can tell it won't cause blisters. The sizing was way off. I am a true size 7 and I am reordering in a size 5.
