I bought these because my daughter had the worst, most awful smelly feet in other summer sandals. Couldn’t figure out why. Needed close-toed shoes for school that was breathable for hot weather. I was skeptic, these are made in China so wasn’t sure of quality as per previous purchases. Turns out, they work like a champ. Size spot on, though I may go another half size up soon. No smell and rocks stay out.
Perfect for the beach! Sturdy soles make it easy for little ones to walk on the uneven sand and the double Velcro in the straps keeps these on little feet (for the most part). They take a bit of time to dry but my 1 year old didn't mind wearing them at all.
We bought these after returning a pair that didn’t hold up. These have been great. The Velcro is key to fit with my son’s fat feet. We got the 6-12 month and they fit as expected. He can kick them off in the water but that’ll happen with any shoes. We’ve even got compliments on the bright yellow and blue colors.
My daughter has such sweaty feet, but she falls a lot with flip flops. I haven’t actually used them for water, but they are our go to summer shoe that lets her be comfortable and not have such sweaty feet. Plus easy on and easy off!
Size and fit was good. My 16 mo old did get a blister on one side of her foot but did wear these repeatedly for a couple days. After a few uses every once in a while the velcro started coming loose while wearing.
