    Reading other reviews, and wearing Chacos myself, I thought my boys would be just fine where others had chafing or blistering in these "sandal-shoes."
    We all really like them, but my sons have found that they really need to wear socks in these if they're going to get wet or walk much. Sometimes they still have red marks above the heel and on the small toe when they take them off. It's really. Ice to be able to hose the shoes off, but Chaco needs to improve the design to eliminate the wear points on the back edge and the little toe edge of the toe cap.

    These only have one adjustable strap and the rest are fixed. Unfortunately I have a skinny foot, so these didn't work for me, the other straps bulged out when I adjusted the one adjustable strap down snug.

    if you have a more normal size foot, maybe would it be a big deal, but I always have to adjust my chaco sandals and i thought these were fully adjustable like those. they came in the box that had the adjustment picture on them, but they are not adjustable.

    I wear a women's 6 and the child size 5 would have fit otherwise- a little bit long but okay.

    i really like the bright teal petunia, it is really cute and fun. the neoprene material is pretty thin and I do wonder how it would hold up to snags and tears.

    sturdy shoes, great fit, not as bulky as they look on the picture. Look great with jeans, etc...

    The straps didn't adjust for me. It wasn't right for me. I wear a womans 6.5 and just an smig to short. Had to go back.

    Great fit, easy on/off, fun colors, good support, wear all year round with socks or as water shoe, quick dry. Can't go wrong with these as back to school purchase. Will last as long as they fit. We just purchased second pair and highly recommend.

    My daughter complains that the shoes are too heavy. And this is when the shoes are dry. Other than that, well built & great foot support. Runs true to size.

    I bought two of these shoes in different sizes for my son and daughter. The first time they wore them they both had blisters on the back of their ankles. I love the quality but I can't convince my son to put them back on. My daughter now wears them with socks at the river.

    I bought 2 pairs of these for my 4 and 7 year olds. At first I thought that they were great shoes and had good support. But, after using these in the water they gave both of my children horrible blisters on their heels. I even tried tightening straps as tight as I could to take pressure off heels but this didn't make any difference. I also bought the adult version for my husband and I and the same results. So I wouldn't buy these shoes for water shoes I would only buy them if they were going to be used out of water.

    Last pair held up very well. Ordered second pair for growing grandson. Have great tread on the bottom for stability on slippery surfaces.

    I am a big Chaco fan, they are by far the most comfortable shoes I've worn. I am an adult & I read a review of these shoes by a woman who said she is a size 7 & fit into the girls size 6 - perfect fit for me as well. I wear these shoes to work, I'm a school nurse & do a lot of walking. They are great & I've gotten lots of compliments on them. I can't believe they are water shoes. They are cool & comfortable, perfect for hot weather. The pull strap on the side is a bit long & hits the ground, my only criticism.
