Epic children’s sandals



Just what my little girl needs. Shoes that with her instead of against her. They are wide and allow her feet to move naturally, just how nature intended.

Lovely sandal

These sandals are really comfy as they flex to the shape of your foot. They are a tiny bit small on me but we’re the biggest size in this style so I expected that. I would prefer it if there wasn’t a hole in the back as when worn without socks there is a mark on my heel corresponding with the hole. I think in time this would be a problem.
The leather is soft and the foot sits comfortably on the sole with some protection for the toes as the front slopes up a little. I like this aspect of the design. Overall I like them and wish they came in larger sizes.
