The Best Shower Shoes For The Gym, Dorm or Beach

Whether you’re living in a college dorm, frequent the gym or are going on a camping trip, you’ll likely have to face the public shower. Since they’re notorious for being less hygienic than those in your own home (yes, they’re a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi thanks to foot traffic from strangers), it’s a good idea to protect yourself with shower shoes.

They’re available in both slide and flip-flop styles and can even do double duty for your next beach trip or simply lounging around at home. Below, we’ve done the shopping for you and found the best shower shoes to buy now. Read on to discover them all.

1. Crocs Crocband Flip-Flop

These lightweight flip-flops offer superior arch support, making them an especially ideal for cushioning sore feet post-workout.

Made of special Croslite material, which is soft and flexible yet durable, the shoe features a shock-absorbing cushion for added comfort. They offer a relaxed fit which is comfortable even for people with wide feet, and the material is easy to clean and dries quickly (just don't leave it out in the sun as the material may shrink).

Available in a range of hues to suit any style, we love the flip-flop's unique footbed, which features tiny bubbles that massage the foot with each step.

2. Vertico Shower Sport Sandal

These under-$15 slides are comfortable, sturdy and ultra-breathable, with a footbed strap designed to vent trapped moisture away to prevent bacteria from forming.

What we like: the durable rubber tread is great for added grip, while the lightweight, memory foam insole keeps things comfortable.

3. Adidas Adilette Slide Sandal

These classic slides offer enhanced support and are stylish enough to be worn with a range of laidback summer outfits.

The adidas slides have been updated with a quick-drying lining and they feature a supportive toe strap and contoured footbed for added comfort. These unisex slides include a cleat-inspired outsole for enhanced grip.

May initially be stiff and may not accommodate wide feet, so give yourself time to break them in.
