My son loves these shoes! He loves telling people about them too. They are made for a boy that wants to play with water every time he steps outdoors which my son certainly does. Perfect shoe for an active almost-four-year-old.

These were purchased for my grandson, who is at camp with his mom who works there. He can go from the lake, sand, dirt, etc easily. Shoes are comfortable and dry quickly. love them! Zappos not only had these shoes when so many others didn't, but the price was great. Also arrived quickly!

My 4 year old son loves his Natives but they kept on falling off so I was looking for a water shoe that he could tighten and wear daily almost as sneakers. These were perfect. They are secure on his feet, don't fall off and he can get them wet in the summer. I think they may run a bit big, I ordered two sizes and kept the smaller but so far he has no complaints with them and he wears them all day.

My two year old son loves these shoes! He calls them his mowing shoes. (A huge compliment!) He's in them morning to night. They are real easy on and off and super easy to clean! I love how his toes stay protected during outdoor play. Will definitely purchase again!

These shoes are exactly what I was hoping they'd be. Lightweight and protective, the perfect summer shoe for my son who doesn't like flip flops or sandals. The fit was perfect and we love them.

We love this shoe! It's extremely well made. The Velcro is very strong and holds together really well even when they get wet. We've only had them a couple weeks, so I'll update the review down the road if there are any quality issues we run into.

These are nice shoes, but they are hard to get in and off, especially when feet are wet.

During the spring, I bought 3 pairs of these for each of my kids to wear over the summer. They are great! They are durable, easy to clean, and very comfortable. It is fall now and they are still in good shape. All 3 kids still wear them around. I'd definitely get them again for the price they're at.

Great water shoe for my 2-year-old son. He seems to like wearing them and has not gotten any blisters. I just wish they came in half sizes, because he's grown out of them so quickly!

These are great for my son in 1st grade. Easy to get on before school. Meet the requirements for school shoes while still being more breathable for our Florida weather and super easy to clean.

Works great for my 5 year old's trip to the creek and to the pool. They dry really fast and have great support (compared to other "water shoes" we have had before.

Well, it's only been 3 days, but so far so good. They seem like the perfect light weight summer shoe that is breathable and can be worn with socks (a requirement for my son's summer daycare). He hasn't complained. He's 2.5 and wears a size 8. They seem to run about a 1/2 size larger to me, but perfect growing room this summer.

Sigh. So many of the reviews of were negative that I didn't know what to believe. As far as comfort and quality, there is nothing wrong with these shoes. And the fact that they can get wet is perfect for my tree climbing kids who also like to play in the water. Don't leave them in the sun to dry and I don't see why they would shrink, which some people mentioned. My issue with these is the sizing. With no half sizes, all of the shoes I bought for each of my kids were either JUST right or way too huge. Of course, just right leaves no room for error and no room to grow. For my toddler, I will keep the just right because I feel like he would be falling constantly in the larger size. For my older kids, they can get away with huge. Bottom line, good all around but for me... we could really benefit from half sizes.

These are a little hard to get on, but are great water shoes for my four-year-old.

I ordered a bunch of different summer/water shoes for my 3 year old son, and these were the only ones he'd put on his feet, so they automatically were the winners. (The orange is very bright but that's a good thing in his mind.) His feet are pretty wide, so I ordered up (he's currently wearing 8W or 8.5W, some brands even extra wide; I ordered 9 in these). They're definitely roomy but the width isn't a problem, either with or without socks. He's worn them both with and without socks and hasn't had any issues with blisters so far (perhaps bc I sized up?). He's happy and can run and jump and play without tripping or shoes falling off, so I'm happy too.

My son was so excite to get these for camp. Loves them but it took 3 tries to get size right. They are huge for their size. My son wears 4.5 in basketball shoes and we had to get a size 2 in these.

I seem to be the outlier here, but my son had HORRIBLE blisters from these shoes. He wore them without socks for a day of water activities, and the blisters caused him a lot of pain the day of and the following week.

Great play shoes. They're similar to Crocs, but IMHO, more stylish. I love that they can be thrown in the wash. However, don't expect them to come out sparkling clean - some dirt just doesn't come out of the ridges. Toddler had slight blisters the first few times he wore them, but he ended up loving them. Great for summer and aerating those sweaty little feet!

My son loves these! He's wanted to wear them every day since he got them. He complained of a blister--they rubbed on his instep the first couple of wearings, but they seem to be broken in now and he says they are very comfortable. I wonder if that's because we bought them a little big since he's growing so fast? Anyway, super happy with the purchase, and we hope to get great use all summer.

I bought these shoes for my nearly two year-old son. They are perfect for an active little kid... keeps his feet stable and comfortable due to the velcro strap and the neoprene around the ankle. However, after a long afternoon of wear in and out of a lake with sand, he developed hot spots on his heels and the inside of his ankles.
