Water shoes are special footwear designed to remain light and comfortable even when submerged in water. They provide protection for the feet especially on rocky or scratchy surfaces under or above water, and are made from light and flexible materials that dry out quickly on land. Some water shoes can only be used for swimming in pools, lakes, or oceans, while others are made even stronger and more durable for use on land and rocky waters. These reinforced water shoes are perfect for hiking or hunting, where different terrains are encountered along the way. They are generally waterproof, windproof, and weatherproof.
Water shoes are used in various water sports such as water skiing, surfing, wake boarding, and water aerobics and training. They are also popular during the summer because they are comfortable and well-ventilated.

Closed water shoes are made from synthetic mesh materials. Some are designed like sneakers, while others are designed like slip-on aqua shoes. They can be used underwater or for treading on land. They are great for people who engage in multiple sports.
Sandals are open-toed shoes made of rubber material. They dry out quickly. They are ideal for beach walks and for summer footwear. Some are designed as flip-flops, while others are designed with one big strap.
