I bought these for myself. I'm 52 and lucky enough to fit into a kids size 6! They are now my favorite thing to wear on my feet! I live in FL and will be living in them in the evenings and weekends! No, I won't sleep in them though! ;)

I am not a fan. These shoes look fine but they are super hard to put on and they cause blisters.

Love them! I decided to try the sandals for my almost-4-yr-old after having really good luck with Keen shoes this winter. He can also put these on by himself, and they don't slip off with running and playing. The prior shoes held up to the abuse of a 3-yr-old boy. I'm sure these will, too! Plan to wear them all spring and summer!

This is a great water shoe that was recommended to me for my kids. The shoe is quality made. My only advice would be to order a size larger. It runs a bit small.

Great shoes, they boys love to wear them. They are a little hard for them to get on by themselves, but we love the closed toe!

I bought these for my tom boyish daughter, and she loves them. They're made well, easy for her to put on and take off, plus she has a lot of support in them. Keens lasts a long time; my kids are hard on shoes and we love them.

I tried to find these shoes in several nearby sporting goods stores but they don't carry them because they're not in season. Thank god for Zappos! My daughter spent lots of time looking at all of the colors and decided on the blue ones. Shoes are excellent quality and can be worn with or without socks. They also seem to have pretty good arch support and the color is really great. Would highly recommend for playtime, especially for kids who'd rather not spend lots of time tying their shoes. :)

I bought these for my seven year old son for this summer. He has had them for over six months now and has worn them a ton. These have to be the best shoes ever. He has loved them. He wore them almost every day this summer and still wants to wear them with socks as the weather gets colder. He can put them on really easy and he says they are extremely comfortable. He has very sensitive feet too. He if very picky about how shoes feel. We plan on buying him a new pair in the spring. His only job is to decide which color to pick. We went with orange this time since he likes bright colors. We'll see which way he goes next. And just a side note: I'm a teacher and Keens have been my own saving grace for sore, aching feet. Don't hesitate to buy this brand! They are well worth the money.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! My son has been wearing Keens since he's been old enough to wear shoes. He started kindergarten this year, and the school rule on shoes was closed toes and closed backs. Keens are the only sandal I could find to fit the criteria. And we live on an island in the South Pacific- it's hot- we need sandals!

These are spectacular especially for children as they are comfortable as slippers, but cool as sandals. I buy this style every year and this is the seventh pair that I bought for my children. These are excellent quality!

Keen's shoes are amazing. My little one has big fat feet and a penchant for removing his shoes. These fit like a glove and make it difficult for him to take them off.

We love Keens, and this color is so cool! My daughter has a wide foot which tends to be flat. This shoe has great support, a wide toe and breathing room. The width across the bridge of the foot is adjustable...and they look great! The only reason we replace a Keen shoe is to go up a size or to get cool, new colors. We give them away when we're finished, and they live on long after.

Sturdy and comfortable for my 2 year old. First bought the red, one size up but its opening was very narrow and we struggled to fit my son's toes through. Though once in, the toe area itself is wide. Exchanged for blue, two whole sizes up -- a good fit and with sandal's adjustability he has 3/4 inch to grow into (winter house slippers). Excellent sandals, though the closed-toe/heel retains more sand/grit. Will buy again. Zappos service was stellar on rush exchange before our big trip.

What can I say? Keens are just the best summer sandal you can put on your kid's feet. Not cheap, but worth it. I have put them in the washing machine, which removes general dirt. But one of my sons has really stinky feet, I do machine first, then give the footbed a good scrub. Works great. The color is outstanding. Really beautiful. My son's favorite color is red, and he adores them. His brother has the orange, and their dad and I wouldn't make it through the summer without them. (I wear a different style, reviewed separately.)

Love this shoe for my 6 year old son! He loves them, too! This shoe can be used as a sandal and tennis shoe & eliminates the needs for multiple shoes in the summer. Easy on, easy off for him. Survived one week of camping & washed up nice!

Amazing shoe - Last summer, I bought these for my son, who's 5...who never - ever - keeps shoes on in the summer... did I mention he never keeps shoes on?? He loves the ability to get them on and off without adult assistance. They do not let any woodchips - or like material - in the side vents during vigorous park play. They are waterproof. And best of all they get tossed in the washer with mine. We both have Teva's but these are better by a mile! Other than the obvious toe protection – it’s more like a sneaker! Better sole for running & climbing! They last longer. AND HE KEEPS THEM ON! The summer camp only allows Keens & plain ol' sneakers for attendance...and who wouldn’t want these instead of hot sweaty sneaker?!?!? -- Can you guess we just love 'em? -- Off to buy a pair for my (just) 3 yr. old too!

I purchased these for my 3 year old son, and he wore them all through the summer. I have a couple complaints with these sandals. One is that they are very hard to get over the heel of his foot and felt at least a half size smaller. And the second is that they smelled soooooo bad! I had to wash them at least weekly. With so much washing, they did hold up really well.

Keens are fantastic shoes. I got these for my kids to use mainly at summer day camps where they are running around in the grass and then in a creek, and back to grass. They work great and they run true to size. They are great shoes.

These are a great sandal for the summer. They are sturdy, not flimsy like some sandals they make for kids, and they protect his little toes yet leaving breathing room for his feet. He normally wears a 7. We ordered a 7 and they were a little small. So we went up to an 8. Perfect fit!

Great shoe! My son loves these and asks to wear them all the time. The only issue is odor. Despite the technology they say they have, both my kids' shoes stink. The good thing is I can toss them in the washing machine for a quick fix.
