Rated 1 out of 5 Couldn't get their feet in these!
I purchased two pairs of these for my sons, and I purposely bought a size larger than their current size. They were very long, but neither of my boys could get their feet in these! They are terrible! I tried everything to stretch the front part of the shoe, but I ultimately returned both pairs. They are cute, and I was disappointed, because I'm struggling to find a good pair of closed-toe sandals this year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by casitahome Go Up a Size - Runs Narrow!!
My 6 year old son does not have wide feet and yet these sandals still were narrow. He is tall and skinny for his age and usually wears a Size 1, however, we are exchanging these for a Size 2. Hopefully, with the sandal a little bit larger, he can deal with the somewhat narrow size. I saw that several other reviewers had the same comment about the sandals running narrow.

Like the color and fit, but when my son wore it for a long walk on a field trip, the area near his little toe was badly rubbed, and I saw some stitching coming off on the sandal causing this. Whatever material or stitch was used inside was not held in place properly.

These sandals have worked great for my 9 year old. I ordered them a month before our trip to Acadia National Park, so she could break them in. They didn't need broken in, as she said they were comfortable and the fit great from the beginning. She wore them daily during our trip - they survived hours of hiking and being in the water. She's had them about 2 months, wears them almost daily, and they are holding up great! Definitely a great product. The only drawback, and it is slight, is they take a long time to dry (more than a day) when completely soaked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MamaDancer Couldn't get them on
I bought two pairs. One for my son who has a wide foot, and one for my daughter who has a narrow fit. While both typically have hard to fit feet, the poor fit on these had nothing to do with width. The area at the top of the laces did not open up enough for either one to be able to slide their feet forward into the toe box.

Apparently my daughter has a high instep. I never noticed this with other shoes, but she couldn't get her foot into these. The cords/laces don't allow you to loosen them very much.
The styling was nice and they seem to be well made, but unfortunately these are going back.

I have been purchasing sandals from LLBean for my grandson for the past several years. Of course, he outgrows them before he can wear them out. They are always a great quality, comfortable (no red marks on his feet after wearing them), and easy for him to get on. I love the fact the front is closed so his toes are always protected. I will be purchasing another pair next summer for him.

this shoe is very rigid and uncomfortable. The structure should be able to be less rigid and still provide protection in the water
