Water Shoes

Clearly I have footwear on the brain. Maybe it's because I need to shoe shop (no, seriously. I NEED to shoe shop.)

Do you wear water shoes in the resort parks or at the water parks? I'm seeing more and more styles available, and I'm wondering about purchasing a pair. I would look UBER goofy in a bathing suit and water shoes...but hey, I'd rather look silly for a day than be get cut or end up with sore feet from cuts, hot concrete, etc.

Thoughts?

LOL

I am loving these (not meaning to offend) off the wall topics. Usually if im heading to the pool I either bare foot it or go sockless in my shoes (not a fan... but man... some of the paths to the pools... they dont think of people walking bare footed). I have thought about getting a pair... but the whole spending money part of me always declines because I hardly ever go swimming to justify buying any. Maybe if I did it more id be down... but just cant get myself to do it.

So of course, this would be a big NO for me. I myself do not care for that tight fight around your whole foot. Nor do I like the squishy feel of walking in them when they are wet. Flip flops dry much quicker.

We both bought a pair of the Teva water sandals (one of the cheaper models) a few years ago for just this purpose. But we only wear them to the water parks and around the resort (pool time, etc). Joe did alot of research back then and thought these were the right ones for us.

But I need real shoes and socks for park.

I wear the water shoes everywhere at water parks and flip flops to the pool.

the water shoes are great because they don't slip around when wet like flip flops do and your feet don't burn from the hot pavement.

We got ours for maybe $5 a pair at target 8 years ago or so and they still look brand new. Throw 'em in the washing machine and everything.

Agreed, water shoes are a great way to protect your feet at the water parks.

I really like the ones I'm seeing in Lands End (I'm sure others have them, too) that look like mesh sneakers. True story: I broke down and bought a pair of the water shoes for something one time. We stopped en route, and I just ran into Target really quick to grab them - and grabbed 2 left shoes! I spent the day trying to hide the fact that I looked as though I had two left feet - literally!

Oh - and thanks, Mase. I love to find out y'all's opinions on how you best enjoy the parks! I learn so much from all of you Smile
