These are great summer sandals. I love that they look good & are comfortable & waterproof. My daughter wears them all summer long & they hold up pretty well.

These sandals are so cute - they fit my daughter perfectly and are completely adjustable. They hold up so well - we have gotten them wet and so dirty and they clean up perfectly. Love them.

The shoe is very cute but, 1. runs very big between sizes one inch difference. 2. Zappos tried to find item three days after ordering; I don't have time to reorder another size.

These are great shoes. I buy my nieces new pairs every summer (how quickly they grow!). They are especially good for kids with wide feet, because of the adjustable cross strap.

I love these sandals. I bought a different style for my daughter last year and will continue to get them for every summer. I love the gold too - not cheesy at all and goes with everything. They wear really well. They look better than plastic yet can get wet. I did have to return a larger pair because I should have measured her feet first.

I love these sandals. Already, my daughter has worn them to church, Sea World and everything in between. The styling is classic, but in gold they are a bit trendy and go with almost everything! I have to admit that I thought they were a bit big when I first received them as you see a lot of 'white' beyond the toes. Make sure you check where your child's toes hit in reference to the actual footbed of the shoe before making a determination on size. I kept the size I ordered (a 9) and have found that they are true to size. Although it is the beginning of the season, I can tell these are going to be our 'go to' sandal this summer! At the price, they are a great value!

Great shoe. My 4 year old daughter loves the gold color, and she can run full-out while wearing them. No blisters or hot spots since she's been wearing them. And they clean up nicely with a damp cloth. Only drawback, she has trouble managing the buckle by herself, but with practice, I'm sure she'll get better.

Love these sandals for girls and boys! My son had a pair last year and wore them to the beach, the mountains, the lake and they look almost brand new, he just outgrew them. Can't beat Zappos!

These shoes are so cute and my daughter loves them. They seemed comfy right out of the box and there wasn't any break-in time. The only drawback is that she can not fasten them herself (she's two). These are the perfect summer sandal for a little girl.

Very cute shoes. The color is great, going well with pink or any color you can imagine. The two-buckle design is very smart and slows adjustments to achieve a perfect fit. But the sole is not as flexible as Pediped. So not my daughter's favorite so far.

Brands I'd also recommend: KEEN, PEDIPED

I wanted a pair of navy blue sandals for my grandson. I found them a zappos and the service assistant was very helpful and the shoes arrived quickly. I couldn\'t ask for better quality or service. I will shop here again. Thanks

I just ordered these sandals in a 9 for my 4 year old daughter. They seem to run a little big, as she has at least half an inch in the toe to grow. She loves them and the basic color and style match everything. We will for sure order another pair when these are outgrown.

I love these sandals! They are so cute, and my daughter gets so many positive reviews when she wears them. They are easy to put on and take off, yet the buckle strap is secure. The color is fabulous. And the best feature is their water-compatibility!

Nice classic sandal - Don't know why it's so hard to find a sandal for a little girl that's not pink and/or covered in cheap flowers or Dora, but it is, and I was happy to find these in brown. I was even happier to find them to be pretty well-made -- the soles are thick and sturdy but flexible. The fit, especially around the ankle, is comfy, the leather's soft, not stiff. My only quibble is that a cast rather than stamped buckle would've looked nicer, but. I'm happy and I'd buy these again.

A Must Have In Every Little Lady's Closet - I have been buying these sandals for years... and oh, how sweet. These are probably the best sandals made on the market to date. The buckles allow for wide and narrow fit, and the leather wipes clean with a damp rag, making the shoe looking brand new every time they're worn. Can't beat that for the price! Get them while you can because when they're gone, they're gone! A staple for every little girl's closet!

Classic style, go with everything, very cute with all the navy and white nautical stuff out there. Red sandals are hard to find! Whole sizes only, but ok to size up. My daughter usually wears an 8.5, this size 8 fits her now, but the 9 will take her through the summer. Giving 4 stars overall only because (as mentioned elsewhere) the buckle hardware could be a bit more substantial.

Love 'em! Although they seem to need a bit of breaking in and her foot has slipped out because I hadn't had the straps tight enough. They're very cute and work with all of her clothes.

These are good summer shoes, once you break them in. The sole is slippery out of the box but you just have to scuff them up a bit. I like the adjustable straps on the ankle and instep. The style without the instep strap were too tight for my daughter's arches.

Absolutely love these sandals. Only suggestion is if your baby is just starting to walk these might make it harder because there's no arch support. I ended up getting the same sandals with the thicker sole, it provides great support.
