The Ariel is a classic double-strap sandal with tear-drop perforations. The upper ankle strap has a modern hook-and-loop closure for easy on and off, while the lower strap stays classic with a traditional buckle closure. Water-friendly leather uppers and footbeds along with corrosion resistant buckles make the Ariel a great addition to any summer activity.
Every foot is unique and every brand utilizes different shoe specifications when making their shoes. Thus, there is no single or "perfect" measuring device for all footwear brands. Trying the shoes on is still the only way to truly know if you have selected the correct size with the proper "growing room" for the shoe you are purchasing. With this in mind, and utilizing our decades long experience with fitting children we have developed this unique sizing tool.
