Keep your tootsies safe from beautiful yet sharp shells at the beach or hot pavement near the pool with these Oxide® Tide water socks for women! They feature a soft mesh upper that allows water to freely flow through, a durable rubber outsole with traction pods, and a drawcord at the ankle for an easily adjustable fit.
I love the drawstring around the top, as my previous shoes would get loose and fall off in the pool. Not good. these are a little harder to get on, especially when wet, and they seem to be a bit small, but not enough to buy a larger size. When in the water, I don't notice it at all. These are a little on the heavy side, compared to what I'm used to, and they don't dry as quickly. Can't speculate on how long they will last, but I think I would buy them again. Very comfortable in the pool.
First off, your staff is exceptional!! Friendly and helpful. But all the water shoes are black and ugly. The ones I ended up buying were for a teenage boy. Water shoes for swimming, beach combing, pool aerobics should be all colorful. Sport Authority is supposed to be the best at everything they do. What a dissapointment. The men/women shoes are meant to be colorful and comfortable. All I could see were black. And not even a shoe made for a size 6 woman's foot. Either bring in a wall of bright fun colorful comfy water shoes or remove the ones you do have in the store. P.S.Your staff are helpful, funny and accomodating with what they had to work with. S.A. you can do better than this.
Best feature is the adjustable tie on top. These run a 1/2 size large. I am Womens 8.5 and had to buy size 8. The only issue I have with them is that I wish they did not come in such vibrant colors combinations (light blue and aqua) resorted to buying the black pink after searching unsuccessfully for a solid/neutral color combo. Also, the insoles do come out after a couple of uses just like others on the market.
