Rugged quick dry water shoe

I need a sandal type shoe for walking/light hiking/sailing/paddleboard and water. I have a Teva that's great but slow to dry. Any suggestions? Ladies size 7 is my size usually. Thanks! Cathy

Hi @Grandpriximports .  

While these are not a sandal style water shoe, after trying a few different brands and styles, I have found my "go-to".  It's the Merrell Choprock.  REI only has the women's version available right now, but I found a pair of the Men's version on the Good & Used site.  I love them.  They are styled like a running shoe, but with a very rugged tread pattern.  The body of the shoe is mesh, and there are drain holes in the insole.  I have worn mine with no socks, on short (3 mile) hikes in perfect comfort, even when wet.  They protect your feet, provide good traction, and dry quickly.  They are also available on the Merrell site.

Hope this helps.
