Youth Oxford Water Shoes
Really wanted to love these!
Very disappointed in these shoes! They look great and seem so practical but they are IMPOSSIBLE to put on. Both my boys could not get them on and off easily and I had a lot of difficulty helping them! Also the color on the stripe around the edge wore off after the first wear. I would not buy these again and I am sorry that I wasted my money on them! Definitely need to be redesigned!!

10 year old granddaughter loves them
She has two pair and wants another pair in another color. The lacing/tie feature is a plus. We live in Kansas, so the reef runner aspect is of minimal value, she just loves the shoes.

Not made right. Poor design
Bought these for my Grandson to play in the waterfalls at a state park and they cut the back of his ankles and he was bleeding. I felt so bad as I thought I was getting a good fitting shoe as they came in wide width. The back of the shoe is not made right it should be higher like the men's are.

Girls water shoe
I ordered these so my granddaughter to use while on vacation and doing a float on the James River. She picked the color and loved them. The size was a perfect fit. Just a tad room to grow.

they actually fit!
I am a woman with problematic feet, and I wondered if LE youth wide water shoes would work for swimming. They far exceed my hopes; they are comfortable and way better than risking trouble with the rough cement and bare feet. I wear them 4-5 times a week, even when they don't match my suit. (LE youth 7 w is roughly equal to a normal women's 8.5 EE. )

Look nice sturdy shoe
Like other reviews the first time my son wore them they caused blisters on the back of his foot. The back rises up a little high and rubs against the back. They should change that part only. Since then I have been pushing in the back to break them in which seemed to work.

Sturdy and protective!
These shoes run a little small. I wish I would have sized up so they would be easier to put on. I love that they cover the entire foot and have sturdy, grip-y soles.

Looks good, didn't feel good
I bought these for my 10 year old son for our trip to Maui. He said they were really comfortable when he tried them on and he liked the look. However, the first time he wore them and got them wet he hated them. He said they were very uncomfortable and felt like they had shrunk. He maybe wore them 2 times....a total waste of money

This shoe did not meet my expectations.
I have ordered your water oxfords before and these are a very poor substitute. The size is incorrect and the fit is loose and sloppy. I am very disappointed. Can you offer the ones you have listed in previous years? They were outstanding. These are not!

Good water shoes that cause blisters
These water shoes are great except for one thing... they cause lots of heel blisters on both my children's feet. I recommend them, but we will use Band-Aids before putting them on next time. The previous pair my children wore were Lands End, and they caused heel blisters too. I don't know how to resolve that or where to buy water shoes elsewhere.
