Verified Buyer Reviewed by Charlie from New York on Thursday, May 1, 2014Great Teva quality. They seem quite narrow for youth / kids sizing. The opening seems to be disproportionately small as well. I expected them to feel pretty close to being barefoot, as a minimalist shoe should; with that in mind, they still seem to run a half size on the tight side and I think going a size up would be a good width but then they'd be too long... If you're looking for a nifty water shoe for a narrow foot, these are for you. Otherwise, you might struggle to get them on or have trouble with the toe box being a bit too snug for comfort. If you're not sure about the Nightshadow color, think periwinkle.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by KNK's Mommy from Chicago on Monday, April 14, 2014The opening is way too small. I purchased these for the daughter with medium width feet. She could not get the shoe on past her little toes. These may work for someone with narrow feet. Back they went for Columbia Drainmaker II. Thanks Sierra Trading Post for having the store credit/free shipping on the next order policy.

Reviewed by newsjunkie from Philadelphia on Monday, October 14, 2013I agree with other reviews about sizing; these ran one size small for my son. They are nice, they are a bit more structured than the water shoes we get at the Florida surf shops. Just my opinion, but they look narrow to me. I find the pull-on loops to be perfectly positioned, and getting them on is pretty easy. The opening around the ankle is nice, keeps the shoe on well yet is relaxed enough to make on/off easy and to avoid blisters. Absolutely no rubbing at all. The only thing about the opening is that it does allow stuff to float into the shoe; by son is constantly wanting to stop and clean the pebbles out. So it is a trade off; personally I would rather do without the blisters. I got the blue, it looks exactly like the pic on my monitor; a little lavender, but I think it is fine for a small boy.

“Is this a toddlers size 3? I am desperate to find a toddler size 3 water shoe and can't locate one that doesn't cost an arm & a leg or look like it will fall apart as soon as it's worn.
Sorry, what we have left are Youth sizes.
“Can't find a size chart and you carry two of this shoe. One labeled "Kids and youth". The other (Item #5337H) is "kids." I need toddler size 13 or the first children's size, size 1. Which item number do I order?”
If you are wanting the toddler size 13 order 5337H. If you want the 1st youth size 1 order 5337J.
