I just submitted a review for this product after realizing that only the smaller sizes have the back strap. (I had complained about the shoes we received not having a strap.) So it was my error in not reading the details closely. Anyway, I recommend these shoes even without the strap.

We received these flip flops earlier in the week and warning to parents--these do not actually have the back strap for keeping them on as shown in the illustration. We are debating if we should return them, but we will still have to buy a pair of water shoes to be left at his Pre-K since these won't qualify as acceptable shoes.

The flip flops I received did not have a back strap. I was about to return them to Zappos and explain, but my son saw them and liked them. So we've kept them, and he wears them to the beach or pool. He finds them to be very comfortable, which is remarkable because he usually doesn't like wearing flip flops. So I'm giving these 5 starts all around even though the product I received is not as advertised.

My son loves these! So happy the larger sizes don't have the back strap. He calls them his comfy flip flops.

I have bought these for my little boy for three years now. He loves them and so do I. The fit is great and they are comfy! A big bonus is that he loves all of the fun pattens. He actually likes to pick them out, browsing online. That makes shopping easier for us both!

Great flip flop straps are skinner and the strap between the toe is narrow making it eaiser for my 4 year old to keep on his feet. He and I love them.

Reef makes great flip flops for kids. Both my boys wear them. They are soft and comfy, no hard plastic rubbing on little feet. Also very durable, never wear out or break. I only have to buy a new pair when they grow out of them!

This shoe is well made and adorable. Once our grandson (a new walker) got used to the idea of something between his toes, he loved it. The strap in the back keeps it on securely. The bottom of the shoes forms around his foot for comfort and I think it adds safety by helping to hold his little foot on the shoe.

Bought three pair for my grandchildren and they are really nice flip flops with good arch support (for a flip flop). I did find it to run true to size unlike most reviews that said it ran a size too big. I had to return and order a larger size because I read the reviews so I order down. I now have their normal size and they're perfect. Look comfy! Very soft and pliable for a flip flop.

The flip flops do not have a back-strap, but Zappos did a fantasic job correcting the issue. I am always very pleased with my Zappos expereince.

The shoes were for my 5-year old son who loves both the look and feel of the shoes, and they appear to be as well made as the adult reef products I own. Further, we couldn't find his old flip-flops two days before our vacation, but were able to place an order on Zappos who delivered the shoes overnight for free! Thanks, Zappos!

Very cute! However, I discovered that my 1yr old son does not like anything between his toes! Also, he's in between sizes, but their was no need to get a 1/2 size bigger.

I love these. the are adorable in tiny sizes and the back strap keeps them on. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because they aren't made sustainably, but otherwise they are awesome!

I had to return these because they were at least a size too large for my son. He has an extra wide foot so our shoe choices are limited and we usually go with New Balance. In that brand he is currently a 7.5 but the 7/8 flip flops were nowhere near fitting. They are very cute and seem like they would have been comfortable though.

I purchased size 11/12 for my 5 year old grandson and the fit was perfect and the shoes are very cute and comfy, good support, but within several weeks the straps on top started to look worn and they now have worn spots on both shoes. I would not purchase flip flops made with a suede/fabric material again and just ordered a pair of Teva flip flops for him and I hope they hold up longer than a few weeks. It feel like I wasted money on the Reef's.

These are the absolute best flip-flop I have ever bought for my two boys. I have bought them one pair each for the past three summers, and they always hold up through the entire summer. By the end of summer, the bottoms are getting worn, but they have never broken a strap (which always seems to happen with other brands). My kids love the different patterns they have to chose from.

These sandals are really cute and my son says they are really comfortable I usually don't spend more then for flip flops but these are worth the the money. My son is a size 1 normally but I got a 2/3 because they run small. I love Zappos and I'm really happy with this purchase.

These shoes definitely run big so I had to exchange them for a smaller size (my son wears a 5 or 6 toddler but I had to order a 3/4). But they are great shoes, good quality and stay on better than other brands.
