'Saved my vacation': These top-selling water shoes are on sale for a refreshing $8 on Amazon

Comfy as a sock, protective as a sneaker — shoppers love them so much, they wear them around the house.

Summer is here, and that means it's time to step up your vacation-shoe game. We're not talking about sandals and flip-flops — it's water shoes you need to pack (you do plan on spending some quality time tubing, rafting or just splashing around in the surf, don't you?). Well, now you can score Amazon's top-selling light-as-a-feather water shoes for 20% off. Over 91,000 five-star shoppers swear by them, so let's dive right in, shall we?

These rubber-soled shoes are made with a quick-drying and breathable, synthetic mesh fabric that provides a comfortable yet secure fit whether you’re on dry land or walking in a lake. We're sure you'll love 'em.

Why is this a good deal?

This is the lowest these water shoes have been in over four months and given their popularity and affordable original price point, this under-$10 sale price is an absolute steal.

Why do I need this?

In addition to being extremely affordable, these water shoes are also a breeze to put on and take off. You pull them on like a pair of socks and they have a fit to match. Their smooth design prevents chafing and makes them tres convenient to slip on and off.

They also have a rubber sole which is perfect for traction and preventing any accidental falls or slips. Amazon shoppers appreciate this feature for preventing falls, but also since it acts as a protective layer between your foot and whatever may be lurking underwater: sharp rocks, weeds or just a textured pool.

Whether you’re treading the riverbed or the seaside for recreation or hitting the pool for some water-based exercise, these shoes have your feet covered. And in case you don’t like sand getting between your toes, these water shoes will keep your feet sand-free, too.

These water shoes come in 42 colors and women's sizes range from 4 to 13.5 and men's sizes range from 3 to 12.

What reviewers say:

With over 91,000 five-star reviews, it's no surprise that these water shoes are a customer favorite, especially given their affordable price. Shoppers seem to love most how easy they are to put on and remove and that they work in different types of water environments.

“They are perfect!!!!!” wrote a loyal fan. “Fairly easy to get your foot into, which is a huge plus if you have ever used water shoes….perfect for any beach, jet ski, canoe or kayak activities!”

One outdoor enthusiast put them to the test while kayaking. “I bought these for my two kids and myself for kayaking, and they ... held up amazing. I have been through so many water shoes trying to protect my feet from rocks and the sun with not a lot of success. But these shoes are awesome,” explained the reviewer. “They are so comfortable and keep your feet from getting burnt while out on the paddleboards or fishing next to the water.”

“Love these shoes!!!” raved an aquafitness enthusiast. “Water aerobics and water yoga are so much more enjoyable. No scraping feet on the pool bottom, and they're weightless! I have tried every kind of ‘water shoe’ over the last 30 years ... These are the best.”

Another enthusiastic vacationer says the sole kept her upright on vacation. “I broke my wrist and bought these to wear at a vacation resort in the Caribbean," she noted. “I was just out of my cast/brace the day before vacation and still very nervous of falling. These shoes did not disappoint! I used these all around the resort pools, smooth tile floors, wet steps, docks, boats and I never slipped! I felt secure everywhere.”

Even though these shoes are specifically made for wearing in the water, some Amazon shoppers say they're not just for water sports.

“I purchased these with the intention of wearing them kayaking ... [but] they've become my favorite house shoe," explained a fan. "I couldn't take them off after trying them on. They were so comfortable and fit so well.”

One water shoe convert even said these shoes "saved my vacation," after going to an island that she didn't initially realize was "all sand." "None of the other shoes I brought were appropriate. These saved the day and transitioned from sand to water flawlessly."

A few shoppers noted that the insoles come out occasionally, but they're easy to put back in.

'No scraping feet on the pool bottom, and they're weightless!' exclaimed one happy shopper. 'I have tried every kind of ‘water shoe’ over the last 30 years ...These are the best.'
