While all beach shoes will protect your feet from hot sandy shores, if you’re a hiker or a boater or just a shell searcher, you’ll want to choose a pair with the features that fit your lifestyle. Try on our favorites.

Crocs Men's and Women's Classic Clog

Swimmers’ choice

Roomy enough to fit the widest feet or longest toes, these revolutionary beach shoes come in sizes up to a men’s 17 – and they run a little big. Crocs

Step aside sandals, these utilitarian clogs are a poolside favorite. Crocs come in dozens of colors including the classic black. The low, about three-quarters inch heel, makes them more comfortable than flat beach shoes. Easy to slide on, easy to rinse off, these clogs are dotted with holes so you can rinse them and air them out easily. The rubber-like sole stays soft and is made of lightweight ethylene vinyl acetate.
