There’s nothing better than aquashoes to make the most of the beach and swimming without any risk of your feet getting hurt. Well, actually there is. Fins are far more effective in the water: however, for people who don’t know how to use them or who don’t like wearing them, aquashoes are THE solution! Say goodbye to flip-flops that fall off your feet and cover you with sand!
Let Tribord help you discover the versatility, key features and “easy to look after” nature of water and beach shoes. Smile, summer’s here!
WHY USE AQUASHOES THIS SUMMER
Just how good is it to do water or beach sports in summer? The sun, a pleasant temperature, and the fine warm sand that slips between your toes when you’re stretched out.
Unfortunately, beaches aren’t always only full of sand... Beach-volley, beach-soccer or beach tennis, kites, walking in the water, aquagym, snorkelling, bodysurf or surfing on the coral and rocks, or even just walking on a slippery promenade with your diving gear: there’s no shortage of situations when it’s a good idea to wear beach shoes!
It would be a real shame to spoil your day or, worse still, your holidays, by getting burnt because of hot sand, injuring yourself slipping up or when walking on a rock, a piece of coral, a weever, a piece of plastic or a shard of glass…
So, just like your wear shoes every day when you’re and about, you can put on your aquashoes at the beach or by the water’s edge! Beforehand, choose the best aquashoes for the water sports you’re planning to do.
INSIGHT INTO THE FEATURES OF WATER SHOES
Good water shoes should be at least non-slip thanks to their outer soles. They feature studs to prevent you from experiencing a fall resulting in serious consequences.
- Intended for a variety of uses but especially on sand, aquashoes featuring thin, small-studded soles are specially designed and comfortable
- For walking on rocks or a quay, a thick sole with large studs is strongly recommended for walking longish distances without slipping.
CUSHIONING OF BEACH SHOES
Choose an EVA insole; the cushioning is proportional to the thickness.
Aquashoes with a 1 to 2 cm thick sole provide considerable cushioning. Their comfort will enable you to walk long distances on stones, for example. A thin sole will be fine for water sports or sports played on sand.
KEEPING WATER SHOES FIRMLY ON YOUR FEET
Aquashoes should keep your feet firm even when wet. What’s more, all Tribord models are now fitted with an elastic strap to avoid the shoes falling off as soon as even the smallest of waves appears.
Are you looking for the best support possible? In that case, the best option is to go for adjustable straps as they more specific, adaptable and effective.
HANDY ACCESSORIES FOR TRIBORD AQUASHOES
Many Tribord water shoes are characterised by their resistance to saltwater and their ability to dry very quickly. The closed models reduce the possibility of sand getting in to a maximum.
After the first generation soles, often seen as being uncomfortable, aquashoes now have new removable EVA insoles. Thanks to these new insoles, any sand that gets into the shoes can be removed in just five seconds!
A guarantee of comfort; this innovation prevents irritation and blisters. Think about water shoes with adjustable support: you can tighten them as necessary depending on the nature of the ground under your feet.
You can choose your model, colour and size of aquashoes (men, women, children and even babies). The whole family is catered for: ideal for introducing your children to snorkelling on the seabed, discovering a whole new world full of surprises!
LOOKING AFTER YOUR AQUASHOES PROPERLY
It’s really easy looking after beach shoes: rinse them with clean water every time you’ve worn them, and then let them dry in the shade. Their design and components help remove water and make drying easier.
What about winter storage? A spin in the washing machine and they’ll look just like they did the day you bought them! When thoroughly dry storing them flat, away from light, heat and damp will keep them in perfect condition until next summer!
