We have always bought Saltwater Sandals previously but have found a new favorite! Material is soft, footbed is cushioned and flexible. Plus the velcro is awesome - no more buckles!

Love these! I got Saltwater sandals last year and loved those. I think these are even better. They have velcro making it easy for the kids to put on themselves, and the outer edges are covered in the same material as the soles which keeps them from getting scratched up. Plus I just love the creamsicle color!

These are so cute and comfy. Love the velcro ankle strap for easy adjustment. Fit true to size and perfect for my child's narrow foot.

I ordered these for my daughter for school. She did not like them, she is very picky and di not like that they were different that the School Issue brand in that the heel counter does not have the black overlay like the school issue brand. They are softer slightly than the other brand which I thought she would like but it just seemed to bother her more because she got used to the other brand of saddlebag oxfords. I think I will have to return them as she is refusing to wear them.

These are so wonderful with the velcro, my daughter can get them on and off so easily unlike the Hoy sandals. I felt they ran a little small but just exchanged for the next size up to give her room to grow. Will probably buy more colors.

These sandals are perfect for my toddler's wide feet! I also love the adjustable straps in the front to adjust for the more humid days. They are both stylish and ultra comfortable, I definitely recommend.

I love this brand and especially this style of baby shoes. But I was disappointed that Footmates has changed their insole insert that adjusts the width. You used to remove one insole and put in the wide one and it had the same arch support for medium or wide width. Now the wide insert is very thin and has NO arch support.

I have been buying Footmates since my son could wear shoes! I LOVE them! They look similar to shoes my mom always put me in when I was a child only these shoes are so comfortable. My son never complains about wearing them and can still run and play while looking super dapper! Zappos has become my favorite place to buy them! The last pair I bought came with free next day shipping which I needed for Valentine’s pictures! Zappos has never disappointed. Their customer service is top notch.

So this was my first purchase from Zappos....I have to say I am not impressed. These shoes are clearly an item that was slightly worn and then returned....and then sent on to me. Given that I paid full price, I should not have a worn (even ever so slightly) shoe. This is for pics that were already scheduled, so the return policy doesn't help me. I never return items if my child has worn them, even one time...it's just a wrong thing to do. I am keeping the shoes because I can get the laces washed quick and I don't have time to get something sent back and then replaced prior to our pictures. The shoes themselves are darling and very classic style for my son. If they were pristine I would give them 5 stars. I hope that Zappos will not continue to send out items to customers that are worn, even slightly. These were worn enough that I had to clean up the toe and wash the laces. Not to mention the beat up shoe box...but that wouldn't matter if the shoes looked exactly as they should. Shipping was extremely fast. I may try a second shopping experience but for $60 leather shoes I should not have to wash the outer surface and the laces. Check your products that are returned before sending them on to the next customer, please. If you look closely, you can see the mild dirt on the laces, at that point I already cleaned up the toe...the second photo shoes the been around the block (or in the bottom of someone's closet for a while) shoe box.

Fantastic school shoe that resists scuffs and scraps. Look good for months and I don’t have to replace them until my daughter outgrows them. This is her 3rd pair and I’ll continue to get them as long as the sizes are available. She loves them too.

I couldn’t get my daughter’s foot in this shoe. She does not have chunky feet and I haven’t had this problem with any other shoes. There isn’t enough access down into the shoe if baby is curling her toes or needs help guiding her foot in. I prefer brands like Robeez and see kai run that allow me to guide her foot all the way into the shoe.

Our son has to wear loafers to school so they need to look nice and feel comfortable. He loves his new shoes, most especially because "they look just like dad's".

My daughter is a late walker. At 13 months her physical therapist suggested she gets high tops. I tried sneaker styles but none offered the ankle support she needed. When I showed our physical therapist these she said, these are perfect! I have graduated from size 3.5 to size 4 and will continue to purchase as my toddler grows. They are very well made and sturdy. Getting them on can be tough, but if you open the laces a bit, if you have the correct size, the foot should slip right in. A great shoe!
