What to Look for in the Best Water Shoes for Kids


Slippery decks. Splintery docks. Hot sand. River rocks.

Summer vacation is full of hazards for kids’ tender feet. When you’re packing for the trip, don’t forget to buy good quality water shoes for your little (and not-so-little) ones! Here are three things to look for in the best water shoes for kids.

The best water shoes for kids help them get a grip.

Summer is all about adventure, whatever your age. That’s why kids need water shoes that can keep up with them. Our Flatwater kids’ water shoes have a non-marking, anti-slip outersole that helps kids get a grip on docks, decks and diving boards. The Flatwater is also a great shoe for water sports, including kayaking, tubing and canoeing.

Quality water shoes for kids are tough enough to protect tender feet.

Stubbed toes and scraped heels don’t have to be part of your kids’ summer adventures. The best water shoes for kids have tough toe and heel bumpers to protect little feet. Look for pull tabs on the heel and instep to make them easy to put on.

High-quality water shoes for kids are built to last.

Kids’ water shoes take a beating from sun, salt, sand, sweat and, of course, water.

That’s why Cudas water shoes for kids are made to last.  We designed them to meet the same high standards as our adult Flatwater shoe, with quality stitching and durable materials. They’re quick-drying and breathable, so they’re up for day after day of summer fun. And they’re available in four fun colors: navy/grey, black, pink, and light blue.
