Our 8 year old grandson is very happy with his sandals. He has been wearing them constantly since receiving them. Good foot protection, pliable, sturdy. Easy on and off

Rated 4 out of 5 by CDub113 Fast drying
My son says they are really comfortable and he can't wait to wear them at the lake this summer. They run really big so if your child is in between sizes, round down. I bought a green/grey and orange/navy pair. The colors are great but these sandals are pretty ugly in my opinion. The two straps look strange on a boy but they are functional so I will have to over look the style issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pittsfordNY Good sandals!
For a trip to the Galapagos Islands!! I wear kids' size shoes, so was looking for something to get through wet landings (in the sea!) and then can be used for nature hikes. Very comfortable, do not need a lot of breaking in. Watch out for bridge/ankle strap -- lies pretty high on my foot and gets tight in the afternoon. Good colors too!

MY 11 year old son was thrilled to get these and wore them all weekend long on our first camping trip of the season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OlyWa Great Sandal--No Blisters!
My 6 year old loves these sandals, and he is very picky. The material and stitching on the inside is soft and doesn't chafe like the many other water sandals we have tried. I did not check the size chart and ordered his usual size 2--my mistake. The twos were absolutely swimming on him. Ordered them in size 1 and they fit nicely, but still have some wiggle room. I'd say these run a bit longer and wider than other brands, but that's OK because my kid likes roomy shoes. I like that these have a little extra material along the sides to keep his foot stable and protect from pokey sticks, etc. They also dry pretty easily. I hosed them off yesterday evening and put them on a towel next to a fan overnight and they were dry this morning. I suspect they'd dry more quickly in the sun. I kept the twos for next summer because it is so hard to find water sandals that don't cause blisters. I can't comment on durability because he hasn't had them long enough. But I got them on sale, so as long as they last through the summer, I'll feel like I got my money's worth. (FYI: Free shipping with no minimum makes a big difference in my choice to shop with LL Bean.)

My grandson finds these sandals to be very comfortable. They dry very quickly and are great for the beach and summer camp. The sandals are also well made and look nice on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeemom9 Great for summer
Although my son prefers closed-toe shoes for running around, these are great as an every day summer shoe. They dry fast so they would be good to use at the beach or other wet summer activities. My son usually requires a W width but it is hard to find W in his size. These shoes have adjustable velcro straps so they fit him more easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by highlowshopper sizing is off, way off
I have bought these sandals for my son since he was toddler. He's 11 now. The sizing is WAY OFF. My son was recently in a size 8 sneaker and only a size 5 sandal. Otherwise, the sandals are great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bittysmom10 bad color choices for 2014
Bought two pairs of these in 2013 for my then 2.5 yr old. They were comfortable and held up well. He got lots of wear out of them and I was very pleased with my purchase. Came back this year (2014) to buy some more and I am very, very disappointed with the color choices. I'm not buying these as I find the color choices no longer make them versatile. In 2013, I would have given them 5 stars. Please, please bring back the previous color choices!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SharMS Excellent sandal, accent colors too bright
I have purchased these sandals every summer for the last three years for my 7 year old son. They are well made and hold up well. They don't fall apart like other sandals I have purchased and paid more money for. This year I purchased 2 pairs: bright navy and slate gray. My son does not like the bright colored soles and accents. I ended up returning the bright navy/orange pair because he wasn't going to wear them. Please bring back the sandals with more muted accent colors from previous years.
