The Best Water Shoes for Toddlers – Let’s Get Ready for Water Play!

Girl Water Shoes

The summer shoes that you provide for your toddlers play a key role in keeping their feet and legs healthy. It’s during the summer season when most toddlers develop more blisters, calluses, and even corns.

Have you been looking for a pair of water shoes for your toddler to keep his feet blister free during this summer season? It’s important to know the difference between a water shoe and a sandal, as they look similar but serve different purposes.

I know which water shoes are better than others in terms of quality, comfort, and fit from having fitted them before.

Water shoes help keep your toddler’s feet healthy from the following elements:

  • Sharp and slippery rocks.
  • Jagged shells.
  • Broken glass or other trash that might be laying below water.
  • Hot sand.

Water shoes provide toddlers with a barrier between their tender feet and hazards located not just around water, but the beach as well.

The water shoe style that I recommend comes with a secure strap on the back that prevents the shoes from coming off your toddler’s shoes. This feature also helps prevent blisters around the ankles.

The Main Advantage of Water Shoes – Keep Your Toddler’s Feet Healthy!

The main difference between water shoes and sandals is that water shoes are meant to be worn inside the water such as swimming pools, lakes, rivers, and oceans, which are filled with potential dangers for a barefoot toddler.

Sometimes when your toddler’s feet are under water you can’t see what’s below their feet, and there could be rocks or any other sharp objects that might hurt their feet. Even in a swimming pool the floor could be scrapped and hurt your toddler’s feet.

These are 4 additional advantages of providing your toddler with a water shoe instead of a sandal:

✅ Easy on and off: This feature helps save you time and allows toddlers to get the shoes on and off by themselves.

✅ Lightweight: This feature helps prevent your toddler’s feet and legs from easily getting tired.

✅ Fast Drying: When skin gets wet for long periods of time it gets softer and more susceptible to develop blisters.

✅Affordable: Water shoes are more affordable than sandals.

How to Choose the Best Water Shoes for Toddlers?

There are different types of water shoes, and some of them are made from more comfortable and durable materials than others. Some water shoes are also easier to put on than others. I know which water shoes are better than others from actually fitting them myself.

I have been fitting children’s shoes for the last 10 years working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings well.

For the last 5 years I have been helping parents find the perfect pair of shoes for their children online.

Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best water shoes for toddlers.

I only review shoes that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well made the shoes are, the features that they provide, and how they fit.

The Best Water Shoes for Toddlers ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The styles below are capable of fitting toddlers with medium and wide feet.

✅ Thick rubber sole: This feature provide good traction and protection for toddlers during all aquatic adventures.

Adjustable Velcro closure and heel pull tab: These two features make these water shoes a breeze to put on and take off.

✅ Quick-dry body: This feature allows your toddler’s feet from drying quickly. Walking around in wet shoes can lead to several foot issues including blisters.

In order to allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order this shoe style a half a size larger than the size their children’s feet measure. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.

If you are thinking that your toddler needs a pair of sandals instead of a pair of water shoes, then take a look at an article I wrote called:
