To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We ordered these and didn't open them until Christmas when our daughter would fit them. Unfortunately, they shipped two different shoes. The material is nice, and they work well on different types of terrain, but shipping two different shoes is unacceptable. Unfortunately the window for returns has closed, but I would appreciate someone contacting me in regards to this error.
I absolutely LOVE Saltwater sandals. They are so easy to throw on in the Summer time, they go with every outfit, can be dressed up or down, and I love that they can get wet and it's no problem (we've worn them to many waterparks and splash pads). These fit very comfortably on my daughter and she never complains about how they feel. When we first get a new pair I usually put them on her and get her entire foot wet with the sandal on and then let her wear them until they dry completely- this helps to loosen the straps a bit and lets the sandal form more to her foot. They are also super easy to clean, I usually just spot clean but sometimes her white pair just get too dirty and I will throw them in the washing machine and let them air dry. Sizing is different than "regular" shoe sizes, so definitely take that into account before you purchase. You HAVE to go off of the size chart on their website to get an accurate fit, measure, measure, measure! They run large. For reference, when my daughter was wearing a size 4 toddler she was wearing a size 2 in Saltwaters. She is now in size 5 toddlers with room to grow (she can still wear size 4 with no RTG now) and size 3 Saltwaters fit perfectly. Size 4 Saltwaters fit but with more RTG. So if I were to order her "regular" size in Saltwaters they would be huge, so keep that in mind! I would seriously buy ever color if I could!
I took the advice of other consumers and bought a size down and they fit perfectly! My 13 mo daughter has tiny, wide/chubby feet and it's been difficult to find shoes that fit well. these not only fit well, but are adorable and great for the playground as well as the pool! She likes them, too and will bring them to her dad and I to put them on her (after we've gotten home and taken them off her feet!) or she will sit nicely when we are putting them on. Worth every penny!
I love these shoes for my little one. She has very small and narrow feet for her age. I ordered these shoes when she was 14 months and the size 3 was too large (at the time she was wearing a 3.5-4 in stride rite shoes for reference). The size 2 fit perfectly. Being a new walker at the time I appreciated how thick the sole was for extra support. She is now 17 months and her toes are starting to go over the front, so I will be ordering these again in the next size up. Her teachers at pre-school said that when she first started wearing them they would rub a little and cause red spots. But it only took a few wears for them to stretch a bit and fit her more comfortably. Now she doesn't seem to have any issues with them. The ONLY con in my opinion is that the buckle is not super easy to put on, which can sometimes be frustrating with a wiggling toddler. But I like that they aren't as easy to take off (and throw) as her velcro shoes! She has gotten them wet and worn them to the beach and they are easy to wipe off and still look great. They are a perfect classic sandal that goes with anything! Highly recommend
I have nothing negative to say about the model and make of these sandals, my baby girl loves them. (For reference: she is 1.5yrs old and wears a size 4 in these- that is actually a little big still, but will do. She wears a 5 in everything else.)
However, I will be exchanging them for another color. In case anyone is considering the gold ones, and thinking fashionable metallic, these will not do. The gold is a very pale almost pearled finish. It reminds me of gold shoes my grandma would buy. I was looking for something more 'stand out' I guess, to contrast my little girls bright (and sometimes all-black) outfits. Red sandals, here I come!
I love this shoes, so pretty! Perfect for summer. I read all the reviews and most ppl said they were a size too big🙄 well I listened.. and no the strap by the toes were too tight! My daughter wears a size 2.5 or 3, I purchased a size 2. I wanted to returned them but instead I'll gift it. Because they are really cute. She has a small foot she is I year and 7 months.
I got these in navy for my son and they are so adorable! I love that it has real buckles and not Velcro. Yes it takes a little more time to get on, but at least it keeps him from being able to pull his sandals off. They do fit a bit large, but I got his usual size so they will fit all summer. They seem comfortable and go with any outfit! I got my daughter a pair last year and they still look brand new after tons of use. Saltwater sandals are hands down the best summer sandal out there!
These sandals hold up very well. Can be washed in washing machine too. They run large in length but width, even with adjustable straps is almost too narrow for a chubby foot. I would recommend perhaps ordering one size up if you know that your child has wide or chubby feet. Good thing with buying from amazon is that you can return. Even with width issues, this is an excellent quality sandal.
These shoes are so sweet and fit perfectly! My 16 month old daughter wears a size 4 in stride rite and I ordered a size 2 in these shoes for reference. They are comfortable, adorable, and she can't take them off every 5 seconds. She hasn't even tried which leads me to believe that she likes them too. I would totally recommend and am happy with the purchase!
SeeWee’s Sun and Sands sandals are such a classic. They are strong, durable, high quality. These came in a soft package with a clear baggie and tissue paper wrapped around them instead of in a shoe box, so I was a bit nervous but they are the same quality shoe. it did not really make an impact.
