These are so cute, but I have to return them. Very flattering on the feet, my husband says they are plain (not such a bad thing to me!). My daughter says the area where the front and back of the ankle strap meets, digs in her ankle. She is a little scared of buckles (is used to velcro). The sole of this shoe (size 13) measures 8 1/8 in. long, if that helps anyone.

Ordered these in a size 12 for my daughter who wears a size 11.5. The front of the shoes were so long it was crazy. The length of the base of the shoe from the front buckle to the top of the toe is crazy long. You'd have to have Ronald McDonald toes to pull these off.

This is the perfect sandal for any girl. The gold color is very versatile and goes with everything. We have worn these shoes in the mud, cleaned them and they came out good as new. I highly recommend these sandals and will be ordering them for my older two girls as well.

These are adorable, and since they can be adjusted at the toe and the ankle, they can accommodate any little foot. The buckle is a little stiff, but I suspect it will loosen up as she wears them more.

These are the best shoes for summer. We always get white-classic, but the other colors are so fun! My daugher wears an 8.5 and the 9 is perfect for her. Like that you can adjust the strap for a good fit.

We wear a 10-10 1/2 shoe so I bought a 10 in these sandals. They fit perfect. Can't wait for her to wear them.

This is a better version of the Salt Water sandal we all grew up loving because of the flexible sole! I also love the scallop edging and the bright patent leather! No complaints from my 2.5 year old who did not have time to break them in before wearing them on a trip to CA. No blistering & easy to wash off sand!

These sandals are so well made, I got them for my 2 year old in this beautiful yellow and also in silver. They support her feet well and are great for Florida hot weather.They are a little wide, my little one has a narrow foot, but the buckle in the front adjusted well to her foot, I got these in a size 6 and they were perfect, I wish they had the gold and the shiny creamy color in her size or maybe the next size up. Zappos is always incredible with their shipping, were here within 1 day of ordering. Love Zappos and Love these Sun-San sandals. Please bring more sizes. :)

Great shoes! My daughter loves them. We got stuck in a mini flood and had to walk through puddles up to our ankles and the shoes didn't get ruined even though they are leather, they are still great. They are comfortable. My daughter complains about shoes all the time and these she finally loves.

Great sandals! These are so helpful since they look nice but if we accidentally end up running through sprinklers (which we did, last weekend) they don't get ruined. My two-year-old daughter loves the patent leather and the hearts -- we ended up buying the green, too. Buckling was difficult at first but after the leather softened up they have been easy to get on and off. While velcro is easier, the advantage of real buckles is that she can't get them off by herself when I don't want her to take them off! This shoe seems to run a bit small so we sized up. Great for my daughter's narrow feet -- she can't wear Stride Rite, Pediped, or See Kai Run brands because they are too wide and deep for her feet.

Great shoes. Cute and good quality. My child has worn these the last two summers and they are surprisingly durable. My only problem with them is that they don't come in wider sizes. We have to wear them on the last holes.

My daughter loves these shoes and so do we. Previously we only had her wear pedipeds because we think they are great for baby feet, but she's now a toddler (17m) and these are perfect for a busy walker. I love that she can't take them off by herself as she's lost several pairs of pedipeds that way. They seem comfortable and adjustable at two places. The soles are nonslip and thick for lots of use. The leather easily cleans up.

Love these sandals! Have bought them now for 3 summers in a row and been able to hand down the out grown pairs to my younger daughter! They hold up wonderfully to lots and lots of play! And are very versatile in terms of wardrobe! I will continue to buy them until they no longer have a big enough size. :) On top of everything my very opinionated 3 year old also LOVES them!!!!! A must have sandal. :)

My kids love their Salt Water Sandals! The silver color is great because it matches with everything. My girls both have narrow feet and the straps can be tightened to perfectly fit. The leather is really soft and never gave either of them blisters. I am jealous and wish I had a pair of these sandals!

My 2 year old daughter loved these shoes from the moment she put them on. She had no break-in period; they were comfy immediately. The leather is soft, the footbed is flexible, the straps adjust. They dry quickly and give her great traction on the playground and in the water. They dress up well too. She's a picky consumer and she gives them great marks. They don't have a lot of arch support but I believe that this is a good thing for muscle development in growing feet. I heart Zappos.

This is our fourth pair of Hoy sandals, so I am a big fan. They run large. My 2 year old wears a size 8.5 in Stride Rite and I had to order the 8 in these shoes, with room to grow. My only complaint is that the buckle across the toe on one sandal has become loose and needed to be re-pinched with pliers. But, I still vouch for the quality and apparent comfort. And, the bright pink (which is really a patent leather) are so versatile.

These sandals are fabulous! I tried about eight different pairs of more modern velcro sandals on my 19 month old daughter and these fit her the best by leaps and bounds. They seem to be truly made for a toddler foot. She was comfortable in them instantly and doesn't mind me buckling them. The sandals are also absolutely adorable on. Simple but stylish look great with dresses, skirts and shorts or leggings.

these are great little sandals. the hot pink was a major hit for my six year old granddaughter. I love that you can adjust the width. the only negative is that they are a little hard to buckle. she is very independent and doesn't want any help. I think they will get easier as she wears them. a velcro strap would have been nice. but, the positives outweight the negative. they straps are soft and the sole is not stiff. we ordered another pair when we ordered these and she totally rejected them because they were stiff and heavier. I love the color choices. as usual Zappos was a hit.

The Salt Water Sandal is absolutely adorable. My nearly 3 year old saw them and wanted to put them on immediately. While the buckles take more work on my part than velcro, our daughter is motivated to learn to buckle her shoes so she can be a big girl. I agree that they seem about a 1\/2 size big, but I appreciate having the extra room to grow into. Wonderful shoes.
