Ready. Set. Get wet! It’s no secret that kids love to play in water. And it’s no secret that parents want to keep their kids safe. Although flip flops are lightweight and airy, they’re not always the best summer option since they don’t provide much coverage or support. Enter the perfect water shoes! We handpicked a few parent-approved styles that are water-play worthy, as well as protective for little feet.
The Stride Rite Phibian is a versatile water shoe that has a grippy, lightweight outsole like a sneaker but with a breathable, quick-dry upper like a sandal. And the best part? They’re machine washable!
For more of a slip-on sneaker look, the Skechers Guzman offers full coverage with lots of breathable holes for water wear. The soft plastic foam upper provides comfortable cushioning and is easy to clean.
The Rapid sandal from OshKosh B’Gosh features kid-approved light-up accents across the strap. The double adjustable straps make these sandals a great option for cubby toddler feet. And the wrapped toe bumper keeps little toes safe on any terrain.
Crocs™ is probably the most well-known brand for shoes that can be worn in the water. Their signature Croslite™ material offers soft, lightweight, odor-resistant qualities that parents can count on. We love the Karin clog for its girly Mary Jane mid-foot strap that gives extra support and ups the cute factor.
So, what’re you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy making a splash this summer! What water activities are you looking forward to doing with your family?
