"I bought these for my daughter at her request - I have an adult pair myself and love them! Unfortunately, she didn't feel the same way. I think it was just because she wouldn't wear long enough to get used to the toes being separated. She did use them to wear to the river and they were perfect in the water. I personally think that these are comfortable (once you get used to them) and you forget you're wearing them. I did have to buy a whole size up for her - since the tips of the toes were a little uncomfortable with a snug fit."
