Mishansha water shoes Kararao water shoes

Spandex Fabri Upper Lycra, rubber sole

Rubber sole, salt-resistant Breathable stretch, easy put on

USD $28.99 USD $25.99

PRO & CONS: The Mishansha shoe fits as expected, is good for the beach & water activities, quite comfortable although not as much as the more expensive Speedo. They are pretty narrow and tend to be more comfortable without the laces on. Durability to be determined.

4.6 **** out of 5 (18,535 global rating)


PRO & CONS: The Kararao shoe is attractive and nicely made, good gripping sole on rough surfaces, very comfortable, sturdy, but it can dye some color on your heel at first and can be slippery when wet.

90% fabric, rubber sole 90% fabric, rubber sole

Breathable & durable air mesh upper Anti-slip, Stretchy and wear-resistant

USD $29.99 USD $29.99

PRO & CONS: The Zhuanglin is a great deal for the buck! looks like a sneaker, quite comfortable, great for swimming and hiking although some stones get caught in the bottom when you go off-trail. The strings have plastic ends and they make a ton of noise when walking. So it’s a bit annoying.

4.5 **** out of 5 (12,471 global rating)


PRO & CONS: These DLGJPA lightweight water shoes are awesome! So lightweight, you barely notice them. These would be five stars for sure, but I'm rating four stars because these shoes run WAY large! These shoes are surprisingly pretty sweet. But much space in the toes.

Speedo Surfwalker Rush Speedo Surfwalker Rush

100% true size, felt true width 100% true size, felt true width

Hydrophobic, quick-dry Hydrophobic, quick-dry

USD $40.00 USD $40.00

PRO & CONS: These are very comfortable and fit great. Even when my foot was submerged in water, they dried quickly and kept very good traction, even on seaweed-covered rocks. Easy on and easy off as well. Highly recommend! The sole is extremely thick and heavy so it would be good for walking if I could stand to wear these longer than just a short time.

USD $90.00 USD $119.99

PRO & CONS: The FiveFingers takes a day or so to get it to shape to your feet, and to soften up, since it does stretch some.st and can be slippery when wet. Comfortable and the grey looks fantastic in my opinion. The only downside is sad easily gets into these and it's difficult to get them out

4 **** out of 5 (11 Reviews)


PRO & CONS: The Xero Aqua shoe is very breathable and I like the design, but they're definitely designed for someone with narrow feet. Super lightweight and comfortable !!! Have to walk over lots of rocks, big and small, sharp and barnacled. No issues whatsoever.
