Water shoes and aqua socks come in a wide variety of brands and designs, most of which are labeled for a specific function, such as lightweight slip-on socks for walking the beach, beach volleyball, and yoga, or with a lace-up style and thick, rugged soles for hiking and rafting. And then, there are shoes that are somewhere in between for watersports such as kayaking and jet-skiing. For some people, it might make sense to own a variety of water shoes — for example, if you embark on a lot of different weekend adventures, or if you have a cottage or camper where there’s storage for them. However, if you’re on a budget, or you’re going on vacation and your luggage space is limited, it makes far more sense to purchase a water shoe that can do it ALL. That’s why we recommend Body Glove’s AEON water shoe.
Fashioned for both men and women, this lightweight shoe is perfect for a variety of experiences. The seamless construction with its easy slip-on design and 4-way stretch knit provides a comfortable fit with support. The elastic collar fits snugly around the ankle and the soft material is breathable so your feet stay cool.
The durable rubber sole offers grip and protection from stony, rocky, abrasive, or hot surfaces. However, it is also pliable so the shoe bends comfortably with the movements of your foot.
The design includes an integrated drainage system that allows water to drain and the shoe to dry quickly. To remove any sand, simply rinse after wearing and let them air dry. However, if the shoes are dirty and you want to clean them up, they do well on a gentle wash cycle with cold water and mild detergent, or simply hand wash them. In both instances, let them air dry… do NOT put them in the dryer.
Body Glove creates an abundance of beach and watersports gear and clothing, including several different styles of water shoes. But the AEON provides a best of all worlds scenario with a shoe that’s built for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and diving. They’re great for walking the beach, playing beach volleyball, and for various low-impact exercise programs such as yoga and pilates. And they’re suitable for a variety of watersports that include sailing, kayaking, rafting, windsurfing, jetskiing, and more.
These shoes are the perfect choice for vacation and they pack perfectly thanks to the knit material that easily compresses and fits into the corner or pocket of any suitcase.
