After my recent post, I've convinced you to go swimming. But what if you are worried about your tender tootsies and rocky or shell-crushed bottoms in the body of water you're entering? Water shoes, often referred to as aqua socks, come to the rescue. The best ones are those that allow you to put them on and take them off with a minimum of effort and without the help of someone else.
I've had various models over the years, but the ones I bought last year (my left foot) are by far the best ones I've owned. The velcro closures make all the difference. You can easily put them on and tighten them as much as you need.
Make sure they're a tight fit, otherwise you'll lose them once you start swimming. I usually buy a size smaller than what I wear in regular shoes.
If you hurry, you might be able to get a pair during the end of summer sales!
