Very cute! I buy these every summer for my girls. Silver, gold and white look great dressed up or to the beach! Watch the sizing... They are huge!

I was so excited to buy my daughter these sandals since I grew up wearing them! However, I was very disappointed in the fit. The left shoe seemed to be crooked and my daughter kept pulling at them trying to rip them off. I ended up returning them.

Love this style. My 1 year old wore these all summer. The patent hot pink is a great color. Good buy.

I bought these sandals for my daughter at the beginning of the summer. They are worth every penny, she loves them, very comfortable and durable. They have been through river water, salt water, pool water and multiple other toddler mishaps and are still in great shape. Love them. Planning on buying her another pair for next summer.

Salt water sandals are the best! They wear well, wash well, clean up easily and get more comfortable after wear in the water, dirt and sand. My daughter has worn these all summer for the past three years. She is now four. She always gravitates back to these out of all her shoe choices. If you buy a little big they will last two years and still be suitable for a hand-me-down.

My daughter will have a pair of these shoes for every summer she's a child. They wear well, somehow they don't get dirty and they are a classic look. Great buy!

These sandals are great for kids, though I think this one runs a little too narrow, or maybe it's my daughters feet. We go everywhere from the park to the beach wearing them.

Very durable - it's like they are made of wood. You must remember to stretch them before worn or they will seem too small.

We love these sandals - they are well made and comfortable (even if they don't really look like they would be), my daughter will wear nothing else. Only thing I would say is that the "Shiny Champagne" is not shiny like the other shiny colors (which are like patent leather). They are more like plain white leather.

This is my second year buying these for my toddler, and I could see them becoming a yearly tradition at our house. She pretty much lives in them all summer. They take a beating (they're waterproof) and look cute, too. And they come in so many great colors!

I absolutely love these sandals. They are not only adorable, but with my daughters chubby feet, she is able to squeeze in and her sandals form to her foot being they are leather. They match anything. Perfect!

Have been buying these classic sandals for my daughters for several years. The quality cannot be matched. They clean easily and hold up to wear and tear. Was a bit disappointed with the shiny champagne color as it's really just off white. I love the basic white shoe but was hoping for some shimmer with these. Can't go wrong with these darling shoes!!!

Got a pair for each of my girls and myself. I love these shoes. They have never given my girls blisters and they go with everything. They are very durable and come in so many cute colors. When they get dirty I just put them in the wash and they come out like new.

My 18-month-old loves her sandals - she wants to wear nothing else! They are perfect for everyday wear, but can also be worn while playing in the water out in the backyard. I highly recommend them!

Known for their longevity and comfort, these sandals will last through years of use and are so cute. I wish they were less expensive, but then again they will last a LONG time and hold up so well! The color is exactly as pictured. My next purchase will be the bright pink ones.

I got these in the shiny yellow and I was worried they wouldn't match much, but amazingly they go with so many of my daughter's things, especially navy and red. I have been able to shape them a bit by pinching up the sides so they can be more round, but overall they seem to fit great and my almost 2 year old doesn't mind when it's time to put them on. I like that instead of the hook/eye closure so common on many shoes, these are a true buckle. While that means my daughter is too young to put them on herself, it also means that one isn't going to get accidentally pitched out the window either!

I just love this sandal. I bought a pair for my daughter last year and they were just right for her growing feet, and because I enjoyed them so much I bought another pair for this summer. She is 3 and has a narrow heel with a wide toe area. This sandal is the only one I was able to find that accommodates her foot shape. The foot bed molds to the bottom, while the top is leather and can stretch for a perfect fit. It seems like a sturdy-made shoe that I know will last.

The sandals fit my granddaughter perfect! She is 2 1/2 years old and her feet are a little bit wide, she seems very comfortable with them and they look very pretty. Zappos service was wonderful. I received them very soon. I have also bought the orange and bright pink ones, they are also very nice. Thank you Zappos!

I love these shoes for my 4 year old. They are classic and cute at the same time. I do think they run big (she usually wears an 11 and the 10 is even slightly big on her). I ended up loving them so much that I bought them for my 18 month old too!

I wore Salt Water sandals as a child and every spring. I'd get a pair and they lasted me forever! I was so excited to buy a pair for my two year old daughter, especially now that they have so many new colors to choose from! These shoes will not disappoint! My only advice is to soak them in water before their first wear. The leather will soften and conform to you child's feet and you'll never have a blister to speak of! I can't wait to continue the tradition of buying her a pair every spring! And I love Zappos! What a great company!
