This is our second pair of these sandals. As long as my daughter appreciates the style, it's the only sandals I will buy her. They cute, shiny, fit well, don't rub blisters, and have a flexible and grippy sole. Once they get wet, they fit even better as they sort of mold to the foot shape. They run true to size. My daughter has long skinny feet and has no problem with them. They'd easily work for wider feet too. She doesn't even have to unbuckle them to slip them on. Her first pair is still wearable after heavy use, she's just outgrown them. I fully expect to be able to consign them. This kid is rough on shoes too! Her new pair were worn on a trip to Disneyland with no break in at all. She walked 30+ miles over several days at the park and had zero complaints or blisters. I cannot recommend these enough.

First of all, the thicker soles on this shoe are not ideal for beginner walkers. Flexible soles are the best and these are stiff and orthopedic looking. Like other reviews have said, the fact that they are adjustable in the toe box, as well as the ankle was a plus (my child has a narrow foot) but the buckle was very thin and felt cheap. I decided to return the sandal bc it was not as cute as I thought it would be and also since the sole was so stiff.

This is the second pair of the same sandal for my oldest daughter. The sandal has a thicker sole than the salt water sandals when I was young, but that offers more traction and comfort. Granted, my daughter is careful with her shoes, but these were well made and lasted to be handed down. They do run long, and for her (2.5) we ordered a 3 (giant). Size 2 was still plenty long.

I just got these & I can't wait to wear them! I got the size 6, tan which fit me perfectly, I wear a woman's size 8. They feel comfy & look retro cute. They are perfect with some skinny or boyfriend jeans or a skirt or Bermuda shorts/ they go with everything!

Normally I'm between a 7.5 and a 8 in shoes. Closer to 7.5. I got a 5 in the big kid size and it fits perfectly. Not too tight, fits flush against my feet. Not much arch support but it looks fantastic.

I got these for my niece - she loves them! We always try to get her closed-toe sandals, but these were too cute and were pleasantly pleased with how well they fit her foot in front and were snug but not tight. The only thing I am not crazy about is the buckle. Most of the other brands we try have velcro (fake buckle) and these are real. My niece can't do it so well herself yet - but maybe that will improve in time!

My daughter (age 2.5) has a very narrow foot and we've found a winner with this sandal! She measures between a 7.5-8 at Stride Rite so I ordered a 7 based on other reviews and they fit her perfectly in terms of length. The buckles help to hold her skinny foot in place, and we have them buckled down to the second-to-last notches. She did complain that they pinched her ankles a bit but I'm thinking they'll soften up/stretch out over time. The white footbed seems like it could get dirty easily so we'll see how they hold up.

I love these shoes. Very comfortable. I wore them in silver almost everyday last summer, and they still look practically brand new. I even wore them to wade in the ocean and collect mussels. Love matching my daughter.

The style and length of the sandal were great. It is also solidly constructed but the straps were way too narrow and my toddler is not on the chubby side at all. Both straps could have used extra holes for adjustment and i would have put the holes in myself but there was no more leather left. Also the leather is hard and on hot days when it rubs on the ankles and feet created some blisters on my daughter, ouch. Pretty disappointed. Looks win over comfort in this sandal and there is no reason why Hoy Shoes can't pull off both.

These shoes were just what I expected. Bought them for a warm weather trip. My 8 year old daughter wore them every day. Cro and flip flops caused her foot problems, so we needed shoes that would stay on. The buckle is less convenient than flip flops, but the buckle is why they stay on without clenching her foot, so we will take the trade off. I can tell they will last. Great shoes.

My daughter ran around all summer in these shoes. There was no redness and no blisters. She never wanted to take them off. They are so cute and very easy to wipe clean. They look like dress shoes but have the comfort of sneakers. Love these shoes!

These shoes are cute and kid friendly. They're comfortable and they clean up really well. If the foot bed gets dirty, I clean it with a magic eraser and they're good as new. Definitely recommend for kiddos that play hard and tend to get dirty.

My daughter really likes these sandals. They are replacing a navy blue pair that she wore for 2 summers in a row. She loves the turquoise color. So fun!

Great look, but impossible to put on a toddler whose feet are wide. Looked wider in the photo. The sole is not as flexible as the sole of, let's say, Jumping Jacks sandals. Am disappointed.

I love these sandals but when I got the size 5 I ordered, they were the same size when measured up to the size 4 sandal that we already had. It was the same style shoe. Their sizing is a little weird.

Very cute shoes but unfortunately didn't fit my daughter well. The toe box was too narrow and hurt her feet when she wore them. She's worn them once and I have a feeling that's all she will wear them.

This style is very cute for boys or girls but, it seems to be narrower then the original open toed style. Both kids felt it squeezed their foot, so Im returning for the others that they've been wearing since they were babies.

My 2 year old loved these sandals all summer. And they saw a lot of use. The cut-out hearts are so cute, and the silver color goes with everything. I liked the adjustable buckles on the top and ankle that kept them securely on. By the end of the summer, silver is wearing off and yellowing, but she's onto the next size anyway. We'll be buying again next summer!

My six year old daughter's review: "They are very comfortable and they are flat. You can almost feel the ground through the shoes. That's okay. I like them. I love the color. The buckle is a little hard." Mom's Review: Even buying them too big, they still fit well. My daughter has wide feet. There were no blisters, they took a beating, worn in water, mud, etc. and still look new.
