The sandal I will review in this post is the best sandal for kids to wear during the summer season and summer activities such as summer camp. Parents love how versatile this sandal is and how it’s practically indestructible.
What most parents want from their kids’ summer shoes is to be durable, supportive, and to fit the shape of their kids’feet properly! The sandals I will describe in this post do not only offer great support and durability, but they will also fit a child with a wide or an extra wide foot!
Please keep in mind that I write these reviews for those parents who DON’T have a children’s shoe store in their area. Remember that is always better to take your kids to be properly fitted for shoes at your local children’s shoe store, where an experienced shoe fitter can properly measure your kids’ feet and find shoes that FIT. The main issue is that several parents don’t have a children´s shoe store in their area, and they must purchase their kids’ shoes online.
Those parents should take a look at this post which will guide them through the process of finding the correct pair of shoes for their kids when shopping online:
