I have four kids and my oldest son gets a new pair of these every year. The rest get handed down. We own around 15 pairs right now. We spend every weekend of the summer boating. They constantly go in and out of the water. The really nice thing is that they dont get soggy or fall off like a lot of other shoes. Even The pairs that have gone though 2-3 summers of abuse on the river are still in excellent condition. I also own 2 pairs of these for myself. The only problem I have had is the tan ones tend to peel but after contacting hoy they replaced those pairs and I no longer buy that color. Aside from that they are long lasting and comfortable and I will continue to buy these every year.

I remember these torture devices from when I was a kid. How people are giving these 5 stars for comfort is beyond me, my guess is they are putting kids in them and have no idea how they really feel. The soles are thin and hard. If your kid likes to run and jump they will hurt his or her feet. I can still remember the sore heels. They look good though.

This is the perfect summer sandal for a young one. It's cute enough for daily wear or dress up when needed, yet sturdy enough to stand up to puddle splashing or the playground. I highly recommend!

These shoes are great! They cut into his foot a bit at first but they fit fine. My son wears a 7 but I had to get an 8 to allow room to grown through the summer. We would recommend these shoes. They are nice looking but can get wet.

These sandals are exactly what I wanted for my son. I ordered them on a Wednesday morning and they arrived Thursday evening. Zappos free shipping never disappoints! You can't get stuff to arrive that quickly unless you pay a lot of money for it!

These are our second pair and they are a great shoe. Not only are they adorable on but they are so durable. Water does not affect the appearance of the shoe.

My daughter and I love these sandals! They\'re comfortable and mold perfectly to your feet. They run a little wide, which is good for those with wider feet, and they hold up great to daily wear.

The salt water sandals are excellent! I have been buying them for years. My four children wore them, and they now range in ages from 19 to 32. Every summer that was the first thing I purchased were their sandals. They still talk about picking out different colors each year. I am now buying these same sandals for my grandchildren. They are just great. You will never find a more durable sandal for your children to wear. Little girls can dress them up or you can dress down. They last forever.These sandals clean up great. They can be worn in the creek, then to church. I loved them most because really small children can't unbuckle the buckles. Most sandals for small children either slip on or velcro. What is that about? You spend half of your day hunting up shoes and putting them back on. These sandals stay on and are oh, so comfortable. You can't find a better sandal for your money.

Brands I'd also recommend: none

These are sandals I remember wearing and loving as a kid. My young daughter has now worn a pair of her very own every summer because she loves these sandals, too! Pretty and indestructible. They hold up well enough to be passed down. Makes the cost worth it.

Great sandal - We love this shoe for my daughter. It's so easy to clean since you can just wash them off with a hose or in the sink. Ideal for summer.

Wonder sandal for children - The sandals are the best! Bought them 25 years ago for the kids and am now buying them for the grandkids! They are wonderful quality and very long lasting, but my child would grow out of them before they wore out. The BEST!

Great service - Have loved these shoes for YEARS, I was having trouble finding them in any stores this year, so went online, found this site ordered them and boom they were here within days of ordering them. I love the shoe because they are good looking and can get wet without worrying about them falling apart. The Salt Water is the perfect summer shoe for kids and adults!!

Great Shoes! I bought the Saltwater Sandals for my one and one half year old grandson, as he had outgrown his first pair. These shoes are not only very comfortable, they're very cute, can be worn by a boy or a girl, they last forever, and it’s okay to get them wet! My daughter was suffering with severe morning sickness and couldn't get to the store to get my little grandson new shoes. Since I work full time, it made sense to order them online. They were delivered promptly, they were the exact color I specified and the fit could not have been more perfect. I love the shoes - Zappos.com has my recommendation!

Great! The sandals arrived in just a few days. I bought a pair of navy for my 15 month grandson and tan for my 30 month granddaughter. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. The leather was soft and comfortable and both kids loved them. They look really cute with all their clothes. I think the sandals run a little longer than usual but that gives more growing room.

Love these cute blast-from-the-past sandals! They're cute, comfy, and exactly what I remembered from my own childhood. My daughter wore them immediately without blisters or complaints. I remember that when I was a kid I got them wet and it didn't damage the shoe. The ONLY small thing that may be an issue for you is that the soles don't have much *tread* so if you have a clumsy or very active kid, you might want a more *Teva*-like shoe. My daughter likes to run but she's very careful and hasn't slipped. She also has pretty wide feet and these fit, a bit snugly at first but they'll stretch.

Best Sandals for Toddlers! I had these when I was a girl and I swear by them for my son. Buying them a 2nd time for my 2 yr. old. These keep in good shape, last the whole summer, go with any outfit, clean easily and can be dressed up or down. THE BEST TODDLER SANDAL. I get tan and navy each year.

Best Sandal for Kids and Moms - I have now bought these sandals two summers in a row for my toddler son. He wears them every warm day. He seems to find them very comfortable, they look great with everything, and they can be worn in water! Couldn't be easier to keep clean! The quality is fantastic...nothing he does to these babies seems to wear them out...and they are made in the U.S.A. I have a pair myself! I have found, for both my son and I that I have to buy a whole size smaller than usual.

Great summer sandal! My 2-year old daughter loved this shoe from day one. They are super comfortable and versatile - I have yet to use them around water, but otherwise, I'm tempted to buy a pair for myself!
