These are the best and most comfortable, old school sandals ever! I got several compliments from women who wore them when they were little girls, and I told them that Zappos has them in all our favorite colors!

A classic and we love them for the summer. My girls have worn them for years; they never wear out or leave blisters. Warning about little ones with high arches: my oldest could not wear them when she was little because her arch was too high; once she was older it was fine.

I love Salt Water Sandals for my boys! I get them a pair every year. They are really good for new walkers because the sole is flat and they don't trip as much. They are great shoes. They look nice and can get wet. They are super durable. I feel like they run large.

I got these for my 4 year old son to wear at a wedding. Some reviews say that they are not unisex, which I do not agree with. He wore them with a pair pin striped of black linen shorts, white button down shirt, and a black vest. They went very well with his outfit and he got a lot of compliments so they go well with all kinds of different styles. He never complains that they are not comfortable. He's even worn them in the water and they still look great. His feet are on the wide side and once I stretched them by hand as the instructions in the box suggested they were wide enough and very comfortable.

I bought this pair of sandals because I love the vintage look. Now I can't get them off my feet because they're very comfortable. I'd love to have more in different colors!

These sandals are amazing! My daughter has been wearing hers every week in and out of water for the last 2 years and they are still practically new! The leather still looks great (we have the white) the stitching is still strong and intact and the footbed and sole are still going strong. Love them! I am purchasing her a new pair because she has finally outgrown them.

Love these sandals. They only come in whole sizes, so I think they run a little big. They do not show wear...and we all know a five year old is tough on shoes!

My 7-yr old granddaughter (and I) just loved these. Plain, classic and age appropriate, they will look great with her summer dresses. As always, the service at Zappos is A+++. Happy in North Branford.

This will be the second pair of shoes I have purchased from Zappos. Serially, hassle-free. I love salt water sandals. I was not worried about the shoes not fitting because Zappos speedy return policy makes it easy. These sandals are great! My 3 1/2 year old loves them and they are very durable.

These are great shoes, and very versatile. My daughter, who does not find many shoes comfortable, loves these. We did have to buy one full size down.

I got these shoes for my daughter and she loves them. They look like and can be dressed up or down, and seem like they will hold up well. They fit well and seem comfortable.

I realized I purchased the shoes a little big, but your company makes it very easy to return the products and you send them back quickly. I have used the salt water sandals for many years when my granddaughter was growing up and now I am purchasing them for my great granddaughter. Salt Water Sandal I feel are one of the best sandals for children.

We love these sandals! All day everyday while on a beach vacation, in and out of the water, out to eat and they look as good as new! Get these!

I bought these sandals for both of my daughters. One daughter has very narrow and thin feet and sandals that fit are hard to find -- last year all she wore was flip flops. These fit her great and are comfortable! My other daughter has more "normal" feet and hers fit her great, too. They look cute with shorts and dresses. I am so happy that we found these!

Great kid’s sandal - Bought this sandal for my 3 year old. We are in NYC which is very, very rough on shoes, and it is hard to keeps shoes looking clean and nice. These shoes still look brand new after 3 weeks of wear. And the style is very classic. Great shoe. Fit a little larger than is sized, so I had to return the 1st pair for a size smaller.

Love them - I had these shoes (a least 3 pair) while growing up and loved them. They hold up very well to all kinds of activities. Can be worn in warm weather rain and in the pool and ocean. Get them in tan and it will be the only shoes your kids need for the summer this year!

The best sandal! I bought these sandals for my 3 year old grandson. His mother was so surprised because she wore Salt Water Sandals when she was growing up and she said they were her favorite sandals. She was so happy to find out that they still are making them. I was a hit!

The perfect classic sandal - These sandals are perfect for boys and girls. It's hard to find a classic sandal for dress/casual for boys and these fit the bill perfectly! They are just as appropriate for toddlers as older children.

My 5 year old son likes these very much. The leather straps have a very soft backing and the sole is flexible. These will be perfect for the beach or the water park.

Great and comfy sandals - My 3-year-old daughter loves these sandals. I first got the Tan color and then bought the Red ones. Very nice looking and comfortable. They go great with her summer outfits.
