Rivieras Rubber-Soled Woven Slip-Ons
There is one pet peeve of mine when it comes to footwear that makes me cringe at the pure sight, & that is flip-flops. I feel there is never an occasion when flip-flops are appropriate outside of a locker room shower or swim competition. The sight of open toes on men is never a good sight, trust me. Every so often I get asked 'What would you consider a great shoe to pack for a beach or pool?' & my go-to answer is 'ANYTHING but flip-flops.'
There are many options when it comes to beach or pool appropriate shoes. What is mostly important is to pick something that can withstand getting wet & the other conditions that occur around water that can ruin a good pair of shoes. The following three picks all were meant for waterside attire and inspired by classic beachside appropriate shoes. What is makes each pick great is that they not only look good while laying enjoying the sun & water, but transition well into everyday wear for the summertime. These are shoes you can wear from morning to night and never look like someone who just walked out of a pool.
