It’s both pleasing and apt that a sandal aimed at pre-schoolers should be called the “Hurricane”. However, I presume that this isn’t a reference to what our living room typically looks like at around 5:30pm and is instead a nod to the warm and/or wet conditions that this sandal is best saved for. It has to be said that my daughter took to these really quickly and has thoroughly enjoyed the (minor) challenge of playing with and fastening the hook and loop straps. Once they’re on they’ve proven perfect for the warm weather days of May and June when we toured the splash pads and riverside parks around Cambridge, and if it weren’t so cold they’d be a good choice for Britain’s new monsoon seasons of July and August too. I liked the price and the contouring of the foot bed (although, in all honesty the soles aren’t particularly grippy), she liked the colouring and the fact that she can still see her feet and nails whilst wearing them.
Verdict: A fun and colourful choice for summer days, and well priced too.
Best for: Hot conditions and water-based activities.
