These fit on like socks with no arches at all. there are basically socks with a rubberized bottom so you can't feel rocks under your feet. They can be hard to get on and off once they are wet but the fit is fantastic. It becomes part of your foot. It tends to be a little slippery when walking on rocks, however I haven't really found any water shoes that aren't like that. Especially when there is algae and stuff involved.
These fit sooo well and very comfortable. I got the 8.5 which is my normal shoe size but in sneakers i'm a 9. They are slightly big around the toe which i'm glad they are, more wiggle room.
I have narrow feet in the back and wide in the front. So I have excess room in the heel area, I could just need a half size smaller. 4 stars because these are the best I found so far, they have lasted longer than the other water shoes of similar style I have found. They keep my feet from getting messed up from soaking in the water for hours and walking in the pool
We went white-water rafting on vacation this year, and I needed inexpensive shoes to fit the activity. These fit perfectly, and they were comfortable and secure during all water activities. I also ended up using them in outdoor pools surrounded by blazing hot concrete, speed boats on murky lakes, and a few forays into prickly lawns. The removable insoles and drainage holes dried the shoes quickly. I'd buy them again!
These shoes are like gloves for your feet. They make getting in and out of my kayak so easy while at the lake. I’m never worried about stepping on something since I can’t see the bottom. They are light enough, you will think you can walk on water
