What are some women's sandals for walking and boating?

The best women’s sandals will look great and perform well under tough conditions, regardless of design. However, closed-toe sandals are a smart choice for some activities, while open-toe sandals work well for other activities, so be sure to include a pair of each type in your summer sandal collection.

Here are some factors to keep in mind when deciding when to wear open-toe versus closed-toe sandals:

  • Open-toe: Open-toe sandals, such as Chacos or Tevas, are great for walking on the beach or boardwalk, canoeing, kayaking, river rafting, or sailing. The Chaco Women’s Zong X Ecotread sandal offers multiple straps and a toe-wrap design for a combination of security and ventilation that works on land as well as on water.
  • Closed-toe: If you will be doing any hiking, or if you just want to protect your toes when boating, fishing, or walking on the beach, choose closed-toe sandals that cover most of your foot. The Keen Women’s Whisper Waterfront Sandal offers toe protection, a secure footbed, and an antimicrobial-lined upper.

Visit your local Sun & Ski Sports shop for expert advice about the right women’s sandals for different outdoor activities.
