I purchased these shoes for my 6 year old granddaughter who would live in flip flops if we would let her. She was very excited when she recieved these. My daughter-n-law was excited because they have some support to them, unlike the other versions of flip flops. She said they were very durable and my granddaughter said they were very comfortable and she has a wide foot. They are a little expensive for this type of shoe but they appear to be well made and offer some support and still allow her to wear what she really likes. So far we are please with the purchase.
