Great for Water Play
These are my 3.5 year old's go-to summer shoes. Fantastic for water play and a very pretty color. They do fit a little large and luckily we bought one size smaller than usual after reading all the reviews.

Lightweight
My daughter loved it instantly!!! My only complaint is that the size is big, she wears a 23 currently and other reviews says that it is too large so I ordered a 22 just in-case and it was still big for her. But we like it, she has the whole summer to grown into the shoe.

Size was just right
My 7 year old daughter loves these lightweight flexible sandals. They are so much more comfortable than the equivalent Keen sandals we had tried before - those had sides that were so high that they rubbed against her ankle bones and caused blisters. These shoes are comfy, easy to get on and off quickly, and dry fast after splaying around in the water. I originally ordered a size down based on other reviews (my daughter normally wears a size 30 in Pediped shoes so I got a 29) but they were too small and her big toe was rubbing the front of the shoe. Maybe the younger kids need to order down, but for the larger sized foot, we found the sizing to be accurate.

Love them!
We absolutely love these shoes! Perfect for an all-over-the-place, rock-climbing boy! We are using this model for the third season in a row for my 5-year old. I even order them online all the way from Norway, because they are so difficult to get over here. The only thing is that they are huge to size compared to other brands. My boy uses 27 in all his other shoes, but still fits the 24 Saharas from last season. But we are ordering 25 now, and as long as I know about they being large to size, I don't mind. The overall fit is narrow and long, perfect for slender feet. I particularly love the covered toes, combined with lots of space for the air to cool down hot feet. Love them!

Nice shoes
These shoes are very soft, flexible and look very nice. But they do run huge! I ordered a full size smaller as suggested on the website, but they are still huge on my daughter's feet. Should have ordered 2 sizes smaller.

I love these shoes for summer!! I had them for my son and now I just ordered them for my daughter that is 2. They are light/flexible/and a soft fit that is cute too. I did follow the recommendation to order a size smaller - and it worked out great.

Perfect for my daredevil
These are exactly what my wild and crazy 4 year old needs for summer. They are safe and comfortable for running and climbing and can go in the wash machine when she can't resist mud puddles. Compared to similar style shoes they are much more flexible and don't have any of the rough edges. These are new, but her previous pair of pediped sneakers lasted through two kids even with lots of machine washing. I ordered her measured size and they are a little big but not enough to trip her up.

The Best Summer Shoe!
Great new color! Granddaughter wears 32 but 31 is perfect because they run a little big. Easy to clean and wash. Keeps Katie's hot little feet comfy and cool all summer long. Even enough room for socks if needed. She told me one day that when wearing them, she almost feels barefoot! Thank for keeping these in your line-up year after year!!!

The Best Summer Shoe
Just reviewd another color. This is the best summer shoe for hot little feet. Katie wears a size 32 but know these large. Size 31 is perfect with plenty of extra room for socks if needed. The best for hot summer days!!

Cute and comfy
I was going to get the Flex Canyon style for my son but they didn't have a color combo that I liked in his size. I decided to go with these and I am very happy with them. They are perfect for spring/summer outdoor play. They are cute and they fit my son's narrow little feet perfectly. I used the sizing app and I ended up buying a size smaller than I had anticipated but they were a perfect fit. I highly recommend the sizing app or their sizing tool because their sizes to run a little bigger. I did buy two pair of the Flex Canyon sandals for my daughter and am very happy with them also.

Perfect all-purpose summer shoe
We used these sandals all summer last year with a beginner walker and had no issues. I recently ordered some Keens for this summer and found the toe box to be much too wide/bulky and in general they seemed over-engineered for a 2 year old. We will be returning them for another pair of these. Not a big fan of the color choices this time, though

Love these shoes!
Last summer my son wore these shoes pretty much all summer! They are great because they can get wet but will dry easily, they wash really well, and were extremely durable. I just purchased these shoes again for this summer for my son. The only thing I would caution people on is that they run a little larger than the regular pediped shoes, I ordered what I thought would be the correct size and had to return them and order a size down. It was totally worth it though, these shoes are awesome, I want to get them for my son in the earth color too but they are out of his size so I am checking back daily to see when I can order them!

Love these shoes!
Love these shoes for my 4 year old boy. He can run and play in them and unlike so many sandals, they have great flex and sole support. I looked at Keen's and Merrell's, but they are bulkier in the sole. I prefer the lower profile's look and lightweight benefit. I have washed these in the washer and dried out and they are perfect. No smells and the only thing that has worn a little bit is the Velcro but this is after all year wear for almost 2 years now. I would caution everyone that the sizing is unique so use the Pediped sizing chart when ordering.

Perfect Summer Shoe
My daughter really likes these shoes. She has worn Lands End water shoes the past few years, but they can not be washed and they really get nasty by mid-summer. The idea of being able to wash these is fantastic. She likes the feel of the inside of the shoe because there are no seams and uncomfortable stitching. The color is great and can be worn with dresses or shorts!

Great Water Shoes
I had a pair of Keens handed down but bought these instead because my three year old can put these shoes on herself. (The Keens I had to help her with.) She loves them! They fit a little large. She has pediped sneakers a size up from these sandals.

Only shoes I'll let my kids where
These shoes allow for an active summer while providing good support, protecting the toes and suitable for both wet and dry moments in the playground! Like all the shoes here I only wish they came in narrow.
Son refuses to wear
My son has sensitivity issues and for some reason on these, the tongue is so small that sometimes the rough/hard Velcro band rises about the tongue and cuts into his ankle. There are red raw spots were these happen. He has since refused to wear them and I'm going to have to send them back.

We are so sorry these did not work well for your son. We encourage you to contact customer service to return them.
disappointment
A was very dissapointed because these sandals were too wide for my daughter's feet (the length was ok, so I bought the correct size). They did not support her feet at all. I could not return these shoes because from Eurpe the shipping cost would have been around 60 EUR (same as the purchase price). We loved pedipeds before, used them for years, but I am worried to buy again. They should mark all styles according to how wide feet they would fit...

The only shoe you need for the spring & summer
I'm about to order this seasons Saharas. Just choosing colors. My granddaughter is on her 3rd pair. I keep one for sundresses, one for rugged rough & tumble daycamp and another as a back-up for when the daycamp one is drying. They wash nice & dry in the sun. They do not lose their shape and never look worn or shabby. Super comfy for a finicky girl whose bothered by the seams in socks. Water shoe, semi-dress shoe, play shoe...its all-in-one for Spring & Summer. She even wears them with socks if its a New England freezing Spring day and alone on hot summer days. Can't sing the praises loud enough.

Easy for the toddler and preschooler to get on; functional and good fit! Similar to previous reviewer, one boy has chubby, wide feet and the other skinny and long, but it fits both kids. Looking forward to using it this summer! Can't comment on durability yet.

They're okay
I bought these because I wanted a shoe that I could use at the pool, beach, and on warm days for my daughter. When they arrived, I showed them to her and she put them on immediately and wanted to wear them to bed. She's never done that with any other outdoor shoes, only with her soft-soled house-shoes. I assume it's because they're so comfortable. The shoes are cute on her feet. Her toes seem a bit close to the top of the shoe but I measured (and remeasured, and remeasured) her foot using pediped's shoe fitting app and ordered the size recommended. They fit but I'm not convinced they're going to last as long as I'd like. Also, she was able to easily put her shoes on by herself--that's a HUGE win for mommy. FYI: This was my daughter's first pair of pediped shoes.

A Must Have
Love these shoes! Have compared them to Keen, Merrel, Stride Rite and Geox and chose these b/c they are a high quality comfortable, flexible shoe. More light-weight than the others, the sole is not so chunky and very flexible. I have been buying pediped for a few years. Bought these for my now 6 yr. old boy who is very active and pediped shoes withstand all his adventures.

I found these to fit both large in width and length, and had to return them despite the fact that my son wears the same size in other Pedipeds. Much floppier than last year's sandal styles.

Dont get me wrong, we love the shoes BUT
I wish I did not have to go into the "boys" section to find a pair of rugged, soft soled, waterproof shoes for my daughter. There was nothing like this on the "girls" side of the site. What gives? My little girl doesnt like to run and play and splash? She could not possibly like dark blue and grey (though she prefers purple, she LOVES her shoes!). I was really surprised. But the shoes themselves are wonderful. Pediped, seriously. Whats the deal?

We love it when the girls rock the boys styles, but we do have many options of water-save shoes for girls. The Darcy comes in grey, the Minnie comes in purple, and the amazon comes in multiple colors.

LOVE THESE!!!
Bought this style in a 4 colors for summer and they are awesome! Perfect for my 4 year old to run around school/ camp and the playground. He loves them coz his feet can breathe & he doesn't have to wear socks during the hot summer in Cali. Wears them to Disneyland all the time and he's comfortable & stylish! LOVE the color combos too! Haven't had to wash them yet but glad they are machine washable. They do run about a half size big, but it's fine for my son, we just tighten the strap a bit more.

Great for hot feet
Our little guy is already wearing size 7 at 17 months and gets very hot feet in his supportive trainers so I was looking for an airy sandal that would still provide some support for his still slightly clumsy feet (the flip flop and open toes sandal test didn't go so well!). These sandals have been great AND he has worn them through play ground sprinklers without a stumble or slip! The only note of caution is that of your little one has hefty legs/ankles like move the tongue can rub quite a bit on the front of the ankle where the foot bends since it is not long enough to over the 'curve up to the leg' and not shirt enough to stay clear if the crease but not a huge complaint.

Great summer shoe for my busy 2 year old. He has XW-XXW in stride rite and these fit him great. Only complaint is they run large! He is comfortably in the same size sneaker and while these are wearable they are definitely big. Great buy.m

so so worth the money!
I just bought the next size and I did find then a little baggy around the food, lots of room at the toe too. So I popped an insole in from a previous pair of pedipeds and there perfect!!! My son had them on in the bath the first day I gave them to him!!! He loves them. They are expensive but soooo worth it- my son plays in the mud outside, out in the farm, at the beach, lovely with little trainer socks, the look so smart. Then you can just pop them in the wash! It’s funny how there are more expensive than a different colour though. Will buy these year after year and from the reviews they last year after year so can be handed down to family or friends. Thanks pediped!

Second year in a row
This is our second year buying these for my son. I bought them for the first time last year for our trip to Disney in may. He wore them at the parks everyday and not once complained about his feet. They are cute and comfy and when he had the choice to pick a new pair for this year he said he wanted the same comfy sandals from last year! They wash great and look fantastic after a five year wore them almost everyday from may to September.

So far so good!
So far, so good! I have repeatedly purchased the sister shoe to this one (the Amazon) but thought I would try something different for my younger son (so their shoes were not exactly alike). There are some minor differences between the shoes but so far I am impressed. The shoe meets my expectations and is inline with the quality of the other pediped shoes we have purchased in the past! :-)

Good shoes but unhappy with the straps
The shoes are nice overall but the fabric straps are not very well designed as they always get twisted and are sliding onto the foot arch. every time we have to put them on we have to untswist the straps, adjust them and then put them on. a bit too much to ask of a 3 year old..

Thank you for your comments and for bringing this to our attention. We are sorry to hear that your child has trouble putting the shoes on by himself because of the straps. We have adjusted the straps for future Sahara styles and have added a backing so that the strap does not get twisted. We stand behind our products and want you to be completely satisfied.

perfect summer shoes
We are very happy with this purchase. The shoes are true to size. They are comfortable and required not break in period. My son did not have any blisters or sore spots. Another benefit is that they are easy to put on in a hurry and they are perfect shoes for summer weather. My son goes to lots of water parks and they keep his feet protected from the hot surface while allowing him to run through the water. I would buy these again.
