"I bought these for my daughter to wear to camp - I wasn't sure which size she would need since she's 10, in a growth spurt and has just started women's sizes. I first ordered an 8 but I messed up the shipping and was having to wait for it to arrive - I ended up ordering another 8 overnight, realized it was too big, and then ordered a 7 - which fit fine.
So - I've now got 3 pairs of these Cuda's......but, that's where the review comes in - I buy her a pair of water shoes every summer for church camp and these shoes are the first pair that we had found that was actually comfortable - they have the rubber toe area (like Keen's) the straps are extremely comfortable - not too tight, not too loose.
I will say that they run large - because I normally wear a 9.5-10 and I was able to try on the 8's and they fit without being too tight - they actually fit so well that I've debated about returning them and just keeping them for myself! but also about keeping the other size 8 for her to wear next summer!
I was also impressed that normally, she wears her water shoes in the lake and when she comes home, they look like they've been worn in the lake water....These still look brand new - I had to look at the tag to find out if they were hers or the new pair!"
