I bought this sandal for my daughter this summer, she likes it so much. I like the style and the full support for her. I definitely recommend this to younger kids. Even though it's a little expensive than others I feel the support to her feet is worth it

Teva has sold out to to zero quality control in Chinese factories! Absolute massive change in quality of shoe from the earlier years of Teva to now. Shocking, and maddening, especially for the money they charge. Same for almost all reputable brands, but sad to see!

These seem to be working out well for my almost 5 yr old. I ordered a half size larger so they can accomodate his growth spirts.

My son loves this pair, it was comfortable from day one even without socks. I like its light weight, closed toe and style. I highly recommend it!

Dozer 3, not the best Teva sandal. We purchased Teva Omniums every year for my toddler/pre-schooler. I loved the Omnium because they had a flexible sole and were easy for my son to put on by himself. Since he is now in a larger size, I thought we would try the Dozer because I was not too fond of the styling or the colors in the Omniums for the bigger kids. The Dozer is very stiff, is pretty narrow and my almost 4 year old had difficulty getting them on by himself. For the price, it was not worth it to keep them. They really feel more like the cheapie sandals that can be bought at a discount store, not like Tevas. Thankfully I bought them from Zappos so I can easily return them and re-order another style.

Very cute shoe, but they gave my daughter blisters on first wear. I probably should have eased her into them instead of sending her to school for a full day of wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: would always have recommended Teva prior to this change in their manufacturing standards!

Definitely order one size larger--even then, the fit is snug. Toe bed fits well, the heel support/reinforcement which protrudes up the back of the ankle (can be seen in shoe photo image) was uncomfortable for me when walking, poked into my ankle. Otherwise, it seems to be a very sturdy, well-made shoe, quite adequate for the purpose.

They run very high around the ankle and caused blisters on my son. He cries and refuses to wear them.

The Teva Dozer sandals are a huge hit in our house, as a father I've had a pair for about 3 years now and they are still holding up. My son has taken to the sandals nicely. They are now his preferred shoe for summer camp. They can handle water, mud, tree climbing you name it. A great sandal that will be grown out of before they even come close to being worn out.

These shoes are very cute...love the style! Unfortunately my son got many blisters from these shoes. I tried them 3 different times after the blisters healed and all 3 times he got blisters. For the past 3 years he always wore Keens in the summer and never had any issues, and I thought I would try something different. I am sending these back, happy that Zappos is allowing me to return them. He's never had blisters from any other shoes before.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keens
