Whether you’re planning a day of rafting or a visit to the water park, make sure to pack a pair of water-friendly shoes. Typically designed of mesh that allows for easy drainage, these sporty looks offer underfoot protection from river rocks and hot sandy beaches. They’re lightweight for easy transport, and can easily be washed and air dried.
Here, FN has curated a range of styles for men and women, all affordably priced at under $80, so they won’t cut into your vacation budget.
