Thank you for your feedback.
These have become my go to sandals, and living in Florida, this is quite the accomplishment.
So, of course I was thrilled to find these on Amazon and got a pair for my daughter.
I've got them in several colors, and they're my favorite shoe because of how durable, comfortable, and stylish they are.

    I own one pair of every size of these sandals from toddler 4 to Big Kid 3. I have 4 kids and I wish I could find a shoe that matched the durability and comfort of these sandals. Several of these pairs have gone through 2 or 3 kids already and have held up. The only color that has given me any trouble is the tan, which tends to peal up before even one summer is finished. I contacted saltwater and they immediately sent me a replacement pair no questions asked. We also own a boat and camp on the beach practically every weekend all summer and the sandals are constantly going in and out of the water.

    PROS:
    Buckle secure closure
    flexible
    ridiculously durable
    long life
    dont get soggy
    Always look good

    CONS:
    Tan peels
    Stiff when new(easily rectified by letting your child where them in the bath tub before wearing for the first time)

    Just as a side note I also own 2 pairs of these for my self. One black pair and one white pair. One is a size 9 and one is a size 8 but they are exactly the same size.

    Sizing: They tend to run big, so if the childs regular shoe size is an 8 you would most likely need a 7 in these.

    I have an adult women's shoe size 6-6.5, kid's shoe size 4-4.5
    My feet are a little on the wide side. The 4M US big kid fits great.
    My feet measure 9.25" and theses sandals are 9.5" long.

    I absolutely love these sandals! They're so cute and comfortable. I picked up the black, red and gold. I might be back for another pair, because we all know a girl can never have too many shoes! I normally wear a 7-7 1/2. I ordered them in an 8 and they fit perfectly.

    I highly recommend soaking them in some warm water for about 5 minutes, and them wearing them until they dry. It's the perfect way to break them in and allow them to mold to your foot.

    Size: 9 M US ToddlerSpecial Size Type: Little Kid (4-8 Years)Color: Tan Verified Purchase
    We have been through many pairs of salt waters. I used to agree with other reviews to size down because they ran a little big. This season, I ordered a size 8 for my son's size 9 foot. He grew out of that in 2 months. Like toes off the top, heel off the back. I ordered a 9 and find that it is exactly true to size with no room to grow (see picture). The difference between the 8 and 9 seems to be half a size as opposed to a full size (see picture). I can no longer recommend sizing down. And I might have to exchange for a 10 if I want them to last through summer. Also, something I hadn't noticed previously, each pair I've received this season stinks to high heaven of pungent chemicals. Yuck. Thanks China!

    Great sandals, I love them! Arrived to Australia within a week which was fabulous. The big kids sizes are adult sizes; I got a size 7, which is the equivalent of a women's size 9/ euro 39.

    Beware! The sandal in the picture is not the product I received. I received some generic knockoff of salt water sandals in a plain brown box. The sole is a thick cheap rubber sole. It's not the original saltwater sandal sole as pictured in their picture.

    I wear them on a daily basis. They can really be worn in the water and nothing happens to them.

    Size: 3 M US Little KidSpecial Size Type: Little Kid (4-8 Years)Color: Pink Verified Purchase
    These shoes are a lifesaver for our family! We bought them for my daughter who is 7, who has always complained about her feet hurting in the summer with flip flops. We all were so tired of her complaining about her feet, so I finally broke down and ordered a pair of these last summer, as I remembered wearing them as a child and liking them. Wow, what a difference! She never complains about wearing shoes now, the soft leather is so nice on the skin, and they look cute with jeans or skirts. I am a happy Momma! Especially nice, if you kids feet run a little wide as well.
