I really love these shoes! I must admit that I had a pair when I was a kid, so when I saw they had these for adults, I has to get a pair. I wear an 8.5, so I was afraid the woman's 8 would be too small, at first it was snug but as the packaging points out, it should fit that way and not be oversized. They conform to the foot after a day of wear, and now they are one of the most comfortable shoes I have. The only problem is that I have not been able to order the brown because it keeps selling out right away in my size.

Do not buy these if your child has wide feet or a high arched foot. My wide-footed daughter cannot fit her foot into the front strap area (and the shoe would still be too long) - she usually wears a 10.5 and I ordered a 10. My little girl with a high arch wears a 7.5 normally and the size 7 can just barely fit the top of her foot, but her toes don't reach past the front straps. She loves the shiny pink fuchsia though and I'm letting her wear them to hopefully stretch them out a bit prior to Easter. They are darling and nostalgic, I just wish the fit were different. Stride Rite has great options for feet like theirs.

A little sizing help for those on the fence: These are really adult sizes, even though they say "Big Kid." My daughter wears a women's size 7 and I ordered a Big Kid 7 - which turned out to be a women's size 9. So, I am ordering Big Kid size 5 now, hoping it equates to a women's 7. Sizing issue aside, we love these sandals! My daughter has always worn these - from just walking to age 8 or so. Super comfortable and easy to take care of. In fact, my daughter stopped wearing these for a couple of summers because she wanted an "older" look (Yuck!) and has since changed her mind because she realizes just how comfortable they are and she misses all the color options. Win for mommy!

Normally a 6.5 and wear salt waters in a 4 and I have slightly wide feet. I've been wearing these for years and continue to find myself buying more in different colors! My only complaint is that for some reason when I first receive a new pair, they feel sort of uneven in size (right side tighter than left) but that may be just because my feet aren't identical in measurement. Even so, I forget about that once I break into them.

Awesome sandals. Wish they came in my size. This is the second year I've ordered these for my daughter. They're comfortable, age appropriate and beautiful.

Adorable and very comfortable! I wore these walking in Walt Disney World with no issues. I wish Zappos kept more colors in stock!

I love these sandals for kids, they are the best. I did not like them for myself at all. Too wide, too flat, too masculine-looking...just not cute or attractive for a woman. They were very comfortable but I had to return because they were not at all flattering. I'm still buying them for the little ones though!
