10 Comments on The Best Swim Shoes For Kids- Stop Blisters And Foot Infection

  1. Hi Juan,

    The Sunville toddler’s shoes would be my #1 choice. Like you, the adjustable strap at the back is a great idea. My son is 2 1/2 years old and he loves swimming but it can very stressful worrying about him slipping around the pool area, not to mention infection.

    It looks like #3 shoes also have the strap at the back. I need to check out sizes. Unfortunately I don’t think they deliver to S.E. Asia and if they did it might be a bit too expensive?

    Unless I can find similar over here.

    • Craig,

      Thank you for stopping by. The adjustable strap makes a huge difference when it comes to keeping these shoes on. The strap also allows the shoe to hug the foot, allowing your child to feel more secure and stable when swimming or when running around the swimming pool.

  2. Well said, couldn’t put it better myself – Flip-flops & regular sports shoes take a lifetime to dry up, lol..
    Who has time for that?

    I’d not only get these type of shoes for my kids but myself as well if possible – They’re very affordable & protect feet well.

    • Henry, great points! I think it is important for summer shoes to be able to dry quickly, that way our kids’ feet can stay dry and healthy. Parents tend to like choice #1 and choice #3 because of the fact that they come with an adjustable strap.

  3. Interesting post! I normally buy my kids swim shoes in the summer for use at the splash pad or at the beach. It helps protect their feet from rocks, bee stings, slivers, etc. while having fun in the water. One thing I have noticed is that if I go with the same size as their shoes, they are too loose and fall off easily, causing tripping. I normally go a size smaller on water shoes. Is this what you would recommend as well?

    • Sarah,

      You are 100% correct. When it comes to water/swimming shoes, you should always get a shoe size smaller of what they actually measure since these type of shoes tend to run extremely long. Kid swim shoes can provide a lot of benefits like the ones you mentioned above, but if we don’t get our children the right shoe size, then we will end up compromising their stability and causing problems. Thank you for sharing Sarah!

  4. This is actually a really cool article. I have a three year old, and we go swimming all the time. Although he can’t quite swim yet, he loves getting his feet wet. He has very sensitive feet, however. They seem to chafe quite easily. Is there a pair that you recommend that would solve this issue?

    • My preferences are option #1 and option #3 because they come with an adjustable strap that will hug the feet, providing the child with more stability and control over how tight he/she might like the shoes. Another advantage is that they will dry quickly, that way they won’t compromise your kids’ sensitive skin.

  5. I have never actually thought too much about shoes for swimming/water sports, but everything you’ve described makes a lot of sense!

    I love the fact that it would make walking in the swimming area safer and if on holiday, the hot sand wouldn’t damage their feet and sensitive skin!

    I think number one would be my first choice. I like the toggle adjustment and it looks more appealing, although totally agree that the colour popping fabrics of number 2 would probably call out to children as their choice!

    It’s definitely something I would consider for my children, especially if we were going abroad somewhere!

    • Jess,

      You actually make a very good point that I forgot to mention in my post. These type of shoes will protect our kids’ feet from the hot sand! Specially since children tend to have sensitive skin. Thank you for sharing!
