I got these for my son who wears size 5.5. I got size 5 since I read they ran big. They fit well in the length but are a little tight I think they run a little narrow but I can squeeze them on. They do leave marks on his feet where the holes are because they are snug. Great for playing in dirt, sand or water since they are easy to clean. I like that they have the Converse look and are breathable since boys sandals are so ugly usually. They clean off with water and a sponge. Main issue is he takes them off at daycare so he doesn't wear them all day just on outtings. The gray and blue color is so cute and matches everything.
If your kid often stubs toe or uses feet as brakes for bike or play, then this is not the footwear for daily use. The soles and arch support are far too thin and non durable for long term. Would be best for a beach weekend trip or a warm rainy summer, or indoor. Feet check every 30 min since wetness friction blisters or wet sand abrasions may occur with barefoot use. Works best with socks but the look is funny.
BEWARE. Amazon sent these shoes to us in two different sizes (right shoe proper size, left shoe wrong size). I didn't notice at first, as I bought them a little big due to my two year old's growing feet. Now the left shoe doesn't fit at all, while the right shoe is the correct size. The return window has passed and I'm stuck with ridiculous shoes that are two different sizes. Bummer!
