What are Water Shoes?

If you have ever stepped on a seashell or clam while swimming or snorkeling you know how bad it hurts. Did you know there are special shoes for swimming and boating? Lets learn about water shoes today.


Water shoes are specific shoes for swimming and boating. They have a thick sole to prevent injuries from the bottom of lakes, rivers, or whatever type of water you may be swimming in. Some have toe shields to prevent stubbed toes in rocky areas.

There are both fashionable slip-on styles for use at beaches. The other option is lace-up shoes for fishing or other journeys where you will be walking through water. This is a great way to keep you trip going even if you need to walk through jagged or uneven areas of land.


They come equipped with a special tread for traction while boating or fishing on docks. This is a great option for safety and stability on slippery surfaces. Their nonmarking sole will not make boats dirty while you are wearing them.

Made From Mesh

These shoes are made from a mesh material. This is great for being able to submerge your feet and getting them to dry easily afterward. This material is also able to keep your feet warm in cold water, great for cold water fishing trips, or early in the season swimming.

Easy to Use

They are comfortable so you will want to use them. They slip on easily if you have limited time to change your shoes. They also dry easily so after giving them a few minutes to dry you can pack them back into a beach bag, or backpack if you are traveling.

Small Child Approved

They will want to wear them due to all of the fun color choices there is to choose from. They are super comfortable so they will not struggle with you while you are putting them on them. I would suggest using the slip on variety for small children so they can put them on themselves with ease.

With all the convenience of water shoes, you will want to use them. They are an inexpensive option for protecting your feet against the dangers of water while swimming, boating, or on fishing trips. They come in sizes that work for the whole family. Try some today and never have a trip or vacation ruined again due to sore feet.
