My son has a rare skin condition that causes him to blister from the slightest friction. Its painful and horrible. He's though boy tho and I was desperate to find someone's that would either give him no blisters or at least all we could really hope for was minimal blisters.not as many as sneakers. We even tried special custom shoes from a medical company. These water shoes have worked like a charm. The first pair were perfect and an answer to our prayers. The second pair had not been stitched all the way around the piece of velcro on the side of the shoes and it will be falling off soon. They were cheap, so I don't feel like going thru the return process so I haven't filed a complaint. But it still sucks to have wasted my money in a sense, since he won't be able to wear these as long as the last pair lasted. Still I don't recommend them. They are a miracle shoe for my son. He has epidermolysis bullosa. I hope this review helps someone else. We were pulling our hair out trying to find something to improve the quality of his life. No more limping or barely ever blisters.we are so happy!!
