water shoes

Many swimmers, both professional and recreational, choose to wear water shoes while participating in aquatic activities. They can be extremely beneficial for adults and youths when swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, or doing anything else in the water- especially if you’ll be in a creek, river, lake, or in the ocean. Water shoes will protect your feet from sharp edges on rocks and debris in the water.

Additionally, if you’re out adventuring on vacation or an important meet, the last think you want to think about is the possibility of injuring yourself on broken glass, sharp mussels, or slippery rocks. Water shoes have the traction to keep your feet stable on what could be damaging ground. Instead of enduring bumps, scrapes, and pain that will likely ruin your fun, invest in a durable water shoe and ease your mind knowing that your feet are protected.

Water shoes are also inexpensive and light, so they’re perfect for traveling.

Not going outdoor adventuring? Water shoes are also perfect for in and around the pool. Pool edges can be very slippery and dangerous if you’re not careful, and with children around, you’re better safe than sorry! Not only could a child fall and get upset, they could suffer an injury to their arm, head, or legs. The traction on a water shoe just doesn’t compare to the traction, or lack thereof, on sneakers or other athletic shoes.

When buying a water shoe, pick one out that has a thick, sturdy sole that will take the brunt of any rocks or debris. Also consider the design- water shoes are designed to let water escape quickly through a number of porous materials and drain holes, allowing your feet to dry quicker and not get waterlogged and uncomfortable. We carry many high quality water shoes from brands like Speedo®, Water Gear®; and iPlay®.
