The Aqua Sphere Aqua Trek Sandals take the worry out of choosing the right kind of shoe to wear at the pool. These sandals combine the treads and ergonomic support of running shoes with the quick drying, open-toe concept of flip-flops. Both comfortable and non-slip, the Aqua Trek Sandals are ideal if you spend a lot of time in and around water.
Keeps (Wet and Dry) Feet Happy
Running shoes don't do well around the pool because they can easily get wet and soggy. But on the other hand, it's hard to beat their comfort and non-slip quality. While open toe shoes like flip-flops don't absorb water and help air out wet feet, they do little to provide support and are often a danger because of their slippery soles. The Aqua Sphere Aqua Trek Sandals takes the best principles from both types of shoes and infuses them into one sandal thatâ™s perfect for any activity taking place in or around the pool. These water shoes were specially designed to fit as ergonomically as possible. The single-piece construction is surprisingly soft and flexible. This makes the Aqua Trek Sandals easy to slip on and off at any time. Plus, the foam has just enough give and molds to your feet in all the right places. And with the pair's massaging foot bed, you'd be hard pressed to find a sandal that's more comfortable and practical than these.
Practical And Stylish Design
Unlike other sandals that are designed for use around water, this pair has a heel strap that keeps the shoe firmly in place. Anyone who has been forced to wear flimsy sandals in wet environments knows how important this simple, yet highly effective, feature is. Along with keeping the sandal securely on your foot, the Aqua Treks have a uniquely molded non-slip bottom thatâ™s specially textured for gripping wet and dry surfaces.
Made from EVA foam, which is chlorine resistant, the average weight of the sandal is only about 11 oz. The water shoes are easily thrown in any swim bag and are so light that they will float if you accidentally kick them off in the water. The AquaTrek Sandals comes in either blue or black and are available in the following sizes.
The AquaGear Opinion
While most products are tried out in the pool, the testers got to stay on dry land to give these sandals a whirl. The Aqua Gear testers noticed that the water shoes were easy to slip on and off, no matter if the shoes or their feet were wet or dry. They also enjoyed the comfortable feel of the sandal, noting that the shoe's material was pliable and gently molded to the feet. The sizing of the sandal runs slightly narrow, so if you have a wider foot, you'd be best served to get the next size up.
The Bottom Line
The Aqua Sphere Aqua Trek Sandals are a great accessory to have on hand if you spend a lot of time around the pool. Keep your feet comfortable and firmly on the ground with these ergonomic water shoes.
