Great shoes for fun in the sun or Sunday morning church. They run a little big, just enough to allow for a little growth. I would suggest wearing the straps a little loose to avoid blisters.

Love these. The sole is a little thicker so they're softer on the bottom of her feet. Fits true to size.

We love these sandals...my daughter has had them in multiple sizes and colors. They fit great - adjust sizes - and the colors are fun.

If you order the pink, just so you know, it is actually the shiny pink. It doesn't say that in the description, but it does say that on the box. Love the sandals but wasn't looking for the shiny pink.

These shoes are awesome!! I got some for my daughter last summer and they still look pretty much new despite wearing them very frequently. Very durable, easy to clean, cute with dress or shorts.

I love these sandals but when I got the size 5 I ordered, they were the same size when measured up to the size 4 sandal that we already had. It was the same style shoe. Their sizing is a little weird.

Amazing sandal, durable, and non smelly :). I also loved how shoe-like the soles are; I felt really safe when my daughter was running, jumping, playing all day in them.

Love these! So cute, and they seem to be comfy for my 11 month old. Added bonus, she can't get them off, so we aren't losing them the way were do other shoes.

Perfect! Bought these last year for my 2 year old and they held up great so we bought them again for this summer. Very well made, and a classic look...with no velcro, yay! She wore them right out of the box and refused to take them off after a stroll around the block.

My 5 year old daughter loves these shoes! I but at least 2 colors every spring since she's been. 2. Super cute, comfortable and very well made. She learned how to buckle them herself this year!

I love these summer sandals. They are sturdy and comfortable. The leather makes them suitable for summer special occasions. I have machine washed mine without trouble. I think that the price is very reasonable.

Success! My daughter has wider toes (really, they're just the natural width that toes are supposed to be if they were never squished into pointed shoes - she is predominantly barefoot). We tried the Wide width in Jumping Jack sandals, and they were still too narrow across her toes. I ordered these as a last resort before going to Stride Rite, and they fit, and she approves! The front toe area does seem a bit long like some other reviewers mentioned, but at least her toes won't hang off the front if her foot shifts forward. Not sure I'm going to let her wear these on the beach, though, because they're too pretty to destroy! The purple color is a beautiful violet purple. These do not have arch support, though, if that's something you're looking for. I was looking for none but still with a cushioned sole, and these fit the bill!

Best sandals for kids! Ever! Extremely comfortable, never leave marks or rub. Can be worn in the water. Can be worn dressed up or dressed down! In love with these sandals & so is my daughter. She has worn them for the past 4 summers!

I love these shoes for my daughter, best in size and comfort since I can adjust both buckles. Very glad they are real buckles because then she can take them off.

These are so cute! I love them for our three year old daughter. The leather is a bit stiff at first but will loosen up quickly. I wish they were available in half sizes though. As the half size too big does cause the front/foot bed of the sandal to get ruined easily. I love the white inside.

The perfect sandal for my 3 year old. Very sturdy but soft and supple leather and a well cushioned sole. I think we'll be buying these every summer for many years.

I bought these sandals for my daughter (age 1 1/2 years). I measured her feet using the size guide provided on the Hoy Shoes website. According to the size guide she was a 6. The sandals are a little big, and there is some room between her toes and the tip of the sandal, but she seems to have no problems walking and running in them. I would be hesitant to go to a smaller size. The leather is soft and they don't rub around her ankles or heel. I really like the thick rubber sole, it's flexible and has a good amount of grip so no slipping. The orange is more florescent in person, but we like it. Really good quality overall.

The perfect sandal. I buy these every year for my daughters....classic, comfortable, and inexpensive. (I am willing to pay a lot for good shoes but don't have too!) And Zappos ...well, who isn't in love with Zappos?

Mixed reviews at our house. One girl won't wear them anymore because the straps dig into her. The other one says they're comfortable, although today she put bandaids on her feet where the ankle strap goes. They're definitely cute and seem well made.

These sandals have a very wide footbed. My 18 month old has a narrow foot, and although the buckle straps kept her foot in place, she had trouble walking in them due to all of the extra material/rubber on the sole. She measured a size 5.5 just last week and the 5 was the correct length. Sending these back but may try again in a few years as the quality was great.

These shoes are adorable. Classic design that looked adorable on my daughters feet, but they have to go back because of the buckle closure. It was even difficult for me to buckle them, let alone a 5 year old being able to do it on her own. I know other reviews mentioned over time kids are able to slip the back down without having to undo the buckle but I'm not willing to wait to see if that happens. Had to return them for ones with an easier on/off option.
