These classic sandals were not flattering at all on me. The red was bright but lacked luster. My feet could not have looked any wider or flatter wearing these. I had to return them. I still have fond memories of wearing this style when I was a lot younger.

I ordered these a size larger from my usual Salt Water size based on the reviews. Well...they were too big and I was not a fan of the look. I returned and will be ordering the red in the Original Salt Water Hoy style.

Fit is true to size. We buy these every year for our growing kids. They are wonderful even for our daughter with flat feet. And they can get wet, added bonus for younger kids!

These sandals are undoubtedly very cute. Sadly, they did not work for our 2.5 year old. Firstly, the sizing seemed quite large - she's typically a 6/7. We ordered a 7 thinking she would grow into them, but they were HUGE. The sizing was a bummer, but not a deal break because we easily could have returned them. The problems we found were with the strap comfort and ease of wear. The ankle strap was digging into the front of our daughter's foot. If we loosened it the sandals would flop around. I think the issue had more to do with the patent leather type material - she just did not find it comfortable. The other problem was, at 2.5, she just isn't ready for the buckle. She wants to do everything (I mean everything) on her own and the buckle was a little more complex than what she can handle right now. We would spend at least 10 minutes getting these sandals everyday....not practical. I think they will be a great option when she is older, but for now, we'll have to find velcro straps for our little nugget.

Like other reviewers said- they seem to be a bit tight. I have bought these for years and have never had this before so I’m not sure if they changed the width or what. I thought over time they would stretch out and be wide enough but my toddlers foot still can’t go more forward in the sandal. I don’t want to size up because they would be way too long. Hopefully with more wear and wetting them they will stretch because I love these sandals for little ones!

We originally bought the size my daughter wears in tennis shoes but it was too large. Since these run in whole sizes when you miss you miss big. Definitely recommend ordering a size down from what you wear in tennis shoes. Got the right size and they are perfect and pretty!

I got the same size as what I wear in sandals and they were too wide around the toe area. The design was also a bit off and the half part of my feet on top were exposed. Didn’t work for me unfortunately. Returned.

The fit was fine, I’m normally a 6.5 but my feet swell in the heat so I ordered a 7. They were great until I stood up. The spot where the leather strap meets the footbed of the sandal poked the bottom of both of my feet and was very painful. They also looked like the straps were already becoming separated from the bottom of the shoe. They are cute but were very uncomfortable and looked cheap.

These were a birthday gift for my granddaughter. She loves the shiny fushia color and the perforated heart design. I ordered a size larger than the Hoy size chart recommended so they are a little long, but she doesn't have any problem with the extra length. She really needed a half-size, but since they aren't available in half-sizes, I felt it best to go a size larger. I especially appreciate that these sandal are adjustable via buckles at the ankle and ball of the foot.

These sandals are really well made. The new mustard color is great -- it alsmost reads neutral. However, I ordered the size suggested by the Hoy size chart and the sandals were so small and tight that my granddaughter could not even try them on. I had to return them and order up a size. Fingers crossed that the replacements fit. She does not have wide feet at all, so I was very surprised after reading that they run big, that they were so small and tight.

Gorgeous and comfortable for my 9yo, but take note - if they feel way too tight around the front of your foot, you need to soak them & wear til dry ! It makes a huge difference.

I have a red pair of Salt Water Sandals and wanted a second pair. I ordered two colors, same size that I already know fit. The navy sandal looked bland so I will return that. The yellow sandals were a nice color, but way too small and very stiff. They came in a plain brown box, instead of the usual Salt Water Sandals.. I'm sticking with my original reds and returning both of these. Too inconsistent to consider.

I love these shoes but... the quality is not what it used to be. I’m now sending my third pair back because of the strap on the right foot being almost 1/2” shorter than the left... one pair went back for damaged leather... and the first pair went back because the leather pairing/ sewing seemed off. I know that these can be great shoes because I have a pair of red ones that are my favs. But something has changed in the manufacturing.
