Boys' Water Shoes
Cute and comfy
These are so much cuter than other water shoes. My boys wear them fishing and playing too. Love the gray and orange combo.

Look great, feel great!
We got these for our ten year old son. He likes the look and commented that they feel great. I think that they have a sportier look than most water shoes. I feel that this makes them have a wider range of uses instead of just around the pool. A great choice.

Not Wide Enough or "Deep" Enough
I bought these shoes for my 12-yr-old son in a 7W. They look cool, but they were not wide enough, and they squashed his foot from the top as well (so not deep enough, I guess). I ended up wearing them myself. They are comfortable and lightweight, thus the 3 sailboat score. You should be sure to get these in a store where you can try them on first.

Leaves blisters and NOT WIDE
I have bought LE water shoes for my entire family for years and have never been as disappointed as we are this year. I purchased for my three children, and attempted to use, a pair of mens', a pair of girls', and a pair of these boys' water shoes. ALL were purchased in a wide width, and ALL of them are very NARROW compared to previous years'. (I found the older ones to compare.) So the first problem is that the sizing is off. We bought a little bit larger in this one to try and compensate and thought we would be OK. (FWIW, the one thing I DID like was the velcro strap design -- very easy to take on and off, unlike the girls' one this year.)
However, while at a water park, my son rapidly complained that they were uncomfortable. After awhile, when he complained more, and after noticing that my daughter had bleeding blisters from wearing hers, we checked and he, also, had nasty blisters on his heels. (He also complained about the stitching inside, which was quite rough but did not leave marks.) I compared these water shoes to the older ones (which no longer fit), and the back of these is VERY STIFF and comes up MUCH TOO HIGH on the back of the heel. The old ones are lower at the heel and softer at the top, and we NEVER had this problem before. This was true for these shoes as well as the mens' and girls'. My children should not have to wear socks under water shoes at a water park to keep from getting blisters -- the whole point is that they drain and dry quickly while protecting your feet.
So after spending $$ on supposedly "good" water shoes for my three kids, they wound up walking around barefoot (trying to avoid rocks, etc.) most of the week, or in a pair of "cheap" water shoes from the resort (which while not great, did not cause them pain). We have liked some versions of LE water shoes better than others, but have NEVER had this much trouble before. Who in the world designed these?

my kids got blisters and do not want to wear them anymore!
I bought the wide shoes for my two boys and both of them got blisters. My kids have wide feet but the blisters were on the back of their feet.(hills). They just wore them once and do not want to wear them anymore!
I think it has to do with the design of the shoe. I believe they run narrow even if you get the wide shoes.
First time buying shoes from land's end :(

These water shoes are comfortable & rugged.
We purchased these water shoes for our 6-year old daughter. We chose the boys style over the girls because they appeared to be more rugged, specifically a thicker bottom and toe protection. Our daughter wears her water shoes every weekend in a shallow rock-bottom river. While they aren't as rugged or colorful (orange) as the girls water shoes we purchased from you last year, they are proving to hold up to the frequent use and rough conditions. Our daughter thinks they are comfortable and likes the bright accent color.

Do Not Bother
Sent with my 8 yr old to camp. He came back with huge blisters! We are going back to simply wearing our sneakers.

Great little shoe
This shoe fits very nicely and totally does as expected. No complaints about hot sand or stones in the shore line. They seem like they will hold up well for a very hard wearing son

Fantastic Water Shoes
My 4 yr old son has been wearing these in our pool and again last week on our annual camping vacating on the lake. They are unbeatable. Thank you for making them in wide. He never once complained, wore them all day, no blisters, etc. They helped him climb rocks and fish and kept his feet protected. They are durable and don't fall apart like the ones in the discount stores. I love your water shoes. (My own pair are Lands' End and are now 9 years old and going strong.)
