Well, I ordered these shoes for a trip to Holiday World on Friday, and I ordered my regular size, a size 6, but they are huge! So I got online and ordered a 5 in hopes that I'll get them in time but because of July 4th I don't think I will. Other than them running a full size bigger, they are perfect! Super comfy and the adjustable strap is great for my narrow feet! Cross your fingers I get the 5 in time!

"Beach Runner" is about the worst description I would apply to these shoes! I bought these shoes before moving to the Virgin Islands. I chose them because they were the only water shoes available at the store I visited, and because they were inexpensive. Bad choice. First, I tried using them at the beach. A rough, rocky 1 mile trail to the beach turned into an excruciating 30-minute struggle (which was even more miserable on the return trip.). First, the footbed is flat and paper thin and provides no support and minimal protection from rough/uneven terrain. Second, the mesh allows sand to pour into, but not out of, the shoes and they quickly filled up. Finally, an inside seam rubbed a huge sore on the side of my foot. Once the sore healed, I tried to use the shoes for pool aerobics. They do not stand up regular use in the water. After a few uses in the pool, the top layer of the footbed peeled off. I tried to re-glue them, but they wouldn't stick. I then replaced the footbed with a much better one which cost less, substantially increasing my investment in these inappropriate shoes. However. the thicker footbed raised my foot such that the strap barely fits across my high instep... Bottom line, these shoes are "cute" and dry quickly but they do not work for even moderate activity at the beach or in the pool.

I bought these for pool exercise and need to return them because they are not snug enough. For those looking for a shoe to wear in the swimming pool for aqua exercising, be sure the shoe you get is SNUG, very SNUG, otherwise, it will slip off easily, and/or fill with water and slow you down. These are adorable, though.

I bought these for a water aerobic class. They work really well to save the bottom of your feet. They run a bit wide. But true to size.

I think I should have ordered these in a smaller size. They aren't good for salsa dancing. I hiked around Costa Rica in them and they were fine for that! I've never had Speedos before and they were more comfortable than I had expected.

Needed a shoe to run in on the beach. I've tried 5-fingers and they hurt my toes and are uncomfortable on the heels. These are inexpensive and are perfect for what I need them for. They don't have a good sole so I wouldn't job or walk in them long distances, but for beach activities: great.

After reading the previous reviews, I ordered a 6 instead of a 7. Unfortunately, that didn't work for me, I needed the 7. Maybe it's because I've got a wide foot, so if you also have a wide foot I would suggest you only order 1/2 size down at most. The 7 will work perfectly for me.

I went a half size down and ordered the 7, but even that was too big! Returning. Thankfully the other style, zip-up fit well, so I'm just going to keep that although this one is cuter.

I love these shoes. You need to order it a full size smaller so it molds to our foot. I like them so much I order another pair. They are easy on and off and are very lightweight.

Flip flops don't make the grade when you are walking on the hot sandy beaches of South Florida. The Speedo running shoe insulates you from temperatures and the interesting creatures that come ashore during a walk or run along the Atlantic coast line. Comfortable, durable, practical and easy to clean.

These are excellent shoes for packing on the trail as well as for white water rafting. They fit well in a pack and can easily be pulled out when crossing a stream or waterfall. They also were perfect for rafting. Only complaint was they were too big and I had to order a full size smaller than what I normally wear.

These shoes fit okay but in the hot Florida sun they melted on my nail polish and ruined my new pedi. Very disappointed. My friend told me they look like something her Grandmother would wear.

I bought these shoes because we were going to the beach for vacation and I knew we wanted walk on the beach and near the ocean. The were great. The shoe stayed on my feet when in the sand and it was easy to shake out the sand. Supportive and great for stepping over the seedweed by the ocean.

After reading other reviews, I ordered a size smaller than usual (ordered 8, when usually wear a 9), and the fit was perfect. Don't assume "Runner" in the title means support for running, but after wearing them for an 'off-roading' type of canoe trip, followed by BBQ and some hiking, my feet felt fine.

I bought these shoes for a Float Trip I am going on and this is the perfect shoe! They are very comfy. They were a little bigger than my shoe size so I am thinking they just run big. I would say they run about a half size bigger than my standard size 7 shoe size. Overall great purchase for the price.

I have peripheral neuropathy, which means my feet are super sensitive; that leaves hard shower floors out! I was having a difficult time finding a "cushiony" shower stall mat and one that fit in the entire shower area - but these Beach Runners do the job. They provide a soft cushiony floor and keep me from slipping. And, as a bonus, I can wear them swimming, as they were intended to be worn. My only complaint is that they only came in whole sizes.

Love these shoes! I have been looking for water shoes and tried on a ton! Keen, Adidas, Sperry and a bunch more. These are really cute and very comfortable and best of all the lease expensive! I read the reviews and got 1 size down and I am glad I did. I am always a size and I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. Thanks Zappos!

I typically wear a 9½, sometimes a 9. After reading the reviews I reluctantly ordered an 8 since there was no 8½. They fit perfectly. Order at least one full size down. They are cute for water shoes.

Great summer shoes! I wear these to the park with the kids and don't have to worry that they will get ruined in wet grass, under the sprinklers, or wading along the beach. They are also very comfortable (although they don't have much support) and cute enough to wear every day. My only complaint is that the inner sole slips around when they get wet. A strange disadvantage for a shoe designed to go in the water.

So glad I got these. I bought pink and blue, too. I needed a Mary Jane that was zero drop with no toe spring and widest at my toes, also, no evil arch support. (Any minimalist runner will appreciate this.) They are a cute casual shoe, even with long dresses. So glad I found these and they were a great price.

This is a water shoe. Do not expect to do long distance anything in them. They are not for that. I bought these to help pool side, extra protection from slipping and will keep my feet from burning on hot concrete/sand. They have a cute appearance to them.

A solid shoe for the price, but for my relatively narrow feet the strap could not be tightened enough and tended to fall off when submerged in water. Better for walking activities (e.g. riverbeds).

If you are a true size 5 and have narrow heels these are perfect. I have not worn to test for comfort yet but so far I love them. They are cuter than they look on the web site. They do not make my feet like duck's.
