Maybe you always think of “water socks” as just that – basically rubber socks to protect your feet in the water – usually a beach with a rocky or unpredictable terrain. Water socks – also called water shoes – are a must-add to your packing list whenever the destination is tropical, but do you really know the best pair for your needs?
Truth is that these “socks” are good for more than the water. Wear them during yoga class, while cycling – even for a stroll through the house to protect your feet and toes. We’ve found several pairs of water socks that should fit just about any need you have. So pick a pair and pack your travel bag with confidence.
These quick-dry shoes are perfect for not only the beach or swimming pool but also for weight training, cycling, yoga – even the shower. Toe and sole areas have extra reinforcement to offer added protection where it’s needed most.
We love these socks for the comfortable fit and the protective sole. The upper portion of the socks are made of material similar to wetsuits, which helps with the drying time when not in use.
Here’s a pair that look more like shoes than socks. Maybe that’s ironic because Z-joylee touts their shoes as the closest thing to walking barefoot. Still, their shoes offer added protection for toes and heels.
If you’re looking for socks with some additional warmth, these could be the pair for you. These “Smart Socks” are made with 3 mm of extra soft Neoprene – what scuba suits are generally made of – which provides the added comfort.
