A great water shoe can really change how you play in the water. A good water shoe will let you scramble all over rocky rocky river banks, and even if you’re just heading to a sandy beach, a water shoe will let you cross hot sand with a heavy cooler and not worry about the college kid party that left bottle caps every where. In short, a water shoe can extend your ability to play in all sorts of water — they can even make carrying a paddle board down to the water’s edge a lot easier.
Oh, one more thing about water shoes — because of all the airy mesh or sandal-like holes, they get great breathability on the hot days of summer. Learn more: 10 Best Water Shoes at Man Makes Fire.
