Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dcritique Smelly feet
My kids like the shoe. However, they are extremely difficult to put on because the opening for the foot is too small. My 5 year old needs help putting them on, which is frustrating for both of us. It's the first time she needs help with any shoe in over a year.
After playing in the shoe outside of water for a few minutes, the shoe causes my kids' feet to smell BADLY (we bought two pairs - same result). This should be viewed as a pure water shoe without versatility for any other use. I'm writing this review to warn the other parents because you will not discover the flaw until after your child wears the shoe. Then you are stuck like me with $50 down the drain and a child with stinky feet. I used to be loyal to Stride-rite but this experience leaves a bad taste in my mouth (and smell in my nose). I would never pay $50 for a pure water sandal that my kids can't play in.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomToThree size runs big!
I had to pop in to be helpful to others ordering online. These shoes run almost a full size large. I ordered my girls Stride Rite sneakers in a 1 and they fit great. This shoe in a size 1 was HUGE (it fit more like a 2). So much so that they looked like clown shoes. It was a pain that I had to mail back. Just got the size 13 (which I was worried wouldn't fit at all) and they are perfect. Otherwise, love the shoe. The interior is soft and comfortable. These will be great for walking around this summer at the water parks!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by EyeDrMom Daughter loves it
We picked the purple and lime color and my daughter absolutely loves these! The colors are vivid and she said they are very comfortable. They do run just a tad wide, but still fits her just fine.

I ordered this shoe for my 7-year-old. We like them, but they run big. But I'm not too worried because she'll grow into them. I love that the toes are covered so she can wear them to school as "tennis shoes" for gym class, but they're open and breathable for the hotter months.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mama2DnG Great looking shoe
I have these for my son and my daughter wanted them for our vacation. Unfortunately, I could not find them in the store so I had to order online. They were much too big for her and she was disappointed. I'll hold on to them and maybe they'll fit her next summer.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by PickleLover Overall, these were very good shoes. Although, there are a down sides. First, the tongue cannot stretch out that far, so it pokes into the foot when you walk or run. It can get very itchie. It kind of I put a band-aid there and it seems to be more comfortable. Another problem is that the shoe doesn't air out that well. It makes your feet very hot. These shoes are supposed to keep your feet dry, and it does. But still leaves your feet wet for a little longer than expected. Also get maybe 1/2 an inch smaller. They run big. These are very flexible and durable shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by lotsakids great, lightweight summer sandals
I bought these for my 2.5 year old daughter who is very big, looks like a 4 year old, and has wide feet. We usually get XW for her, but the W in these fit very nicely. They are very lightweight, and are great for running, climbing on rocks at the beach, or just playing in the backyard. They are great for getting wet, because the water drains out, and the material dries fairly quickly. I also bought a pair for my son, also big with wide feet, in a boys navy blue size 1 W, and they both choose these shoes when we are headed out anywhere. I highly recommend them!
