Girls' Harbor Light Sandals
The 'go to' shoe!
I bought these shoes for my five year old daughter, who was wearing a 10 last summer. The shoe fit true to size. The sandal was comfy enough, she did not complain of soreness. The shoe was easy enough for her to put them on and Velcro the straps together. I bought the gold, silver & brown which she could wear with any outfit and it could be dressed up for her to go to church in. The straps have a nice shiny sheen to them. I would recommend them.

"Dressy" without discomfort
I received these sandals as a gift. I like how they let me dress up a bit without sacrificing comfort. While I wish the ankle straps could be tightened a bit more, I noticed that the placement of the straps can be adjusted slightly, enabling a slightly more snug fit on my ankle. The soles are flexible and offer great shock-absorption. I wish they had a bit of an arch support to them (which would also snug them up a bit more), but they're still a nice sandal for days when I'm not going to do a ton of walking. I've been careful after reading other reviewers' comments about the cork veneer rubbing off, but I've not had a problem with that. I would guess that if the cork were rubbed on the sidewalk it might scrape off, but the sandals definitely are not falling apart on my feet.

Lovely and Durable
I rarely review products, but I just came back to buy more of these and thought I'd add my 2 cents. My 12 year old lived in these shoes most of the summer, as well as wearing them to Disney World last winter. It's the first pair of sandals for her that have survived a summer in one piece! Moreover, she has the silver and gold color and she gets tons of compliments on them. They look sophisticated without looking trampy. I always look for sandals that have straps around the ankle, too, so that the kids can run in them without flopping off. Nice job as usual, Lands End. We love your shoes.

Wearing them almost all summer; now can review
Now that my daughter has been wearing the Harbour Light Sandal for almost a full summer, I feel like I can adequately provide a review. The double straps are a bit tricky for her 4-year old fingers to do up, but it's good practice for her. She often needs help though. The velcro closures have not caused any problems for us like other reviewers have experienced. The shoe has a good, sculpted foot bed which offers nice support. She has average-width feet and we did not find them wide like others have said. We both liked them so much upon receiving them that I immediately bought a second pair in a different colour. My only complaint is that very soon after wearing pair #1, the "cork" finish around the toe/front of the shoe was worn off exposing black rubber underneath, thereby making the shoes look rather ratty. They are still her favourite and most comfortable sandals though.

Absolutely adorable and looked to be sturdy... but they were very wide and my daughter has pretty average feet. Additionally, we couldn't even begin to fasten the the ankle strap tight enough. Alot of strap but velcro didn't cover enough of it. (That actually seems to be an ongoing problem for us and LE snadals. Getting discouraged.) Ended up returning them.

Looks nice and comfortable, but too wide
this shoe is very cute but so wide on the foot and ankles...going back.

My daughter fell in love with these when they arrived because they are really cute, but with time we noticed that, although the shoe length is of correct size, her feet tend to slide out of the shoe through the back. The velcros around the ankles are of poor quality and not really adjustable, so we cannot tighten the fit to prevent feet from sliding out. I can see these shoes are of good construction and the soles are comfortable, but the poor fit was disappointing.

Delighted first-time buyer!
W-O-W! I am in LOVE with Lands' End!!! My girlfriend has been raving about LE's products for about a year now so I thought I would buy a couple of bathing suits for my girls... 15 products later! These sandals are sooo beautiful. The cork detailing is just fabulous! It's not a narrow fitting sandal so it's great my 6-year old. I can't say enough about the quality and detailing of LE's products! Thanks for making me a happy first time buyer as well as a customer for life!

WONDERFUL Girls shoe
I bought these for our 5 year old little girl that has special needs, finding good shoes for her are hard to come by as she tends to fall a LOT with being very clumsy, and she HATES to have anything between her toes....these where great, she is able to get them on herself, and she told us they are very comfy!!! I just ordered her 2 larger sizes, and a pair for each of my younger daughters!!! They look great on, and if they are happy, mom is happy!!!
