Shoes for around the pool

Any ideas for some shoes for around the pool. I tried using my Crocs, but when they get wet, they tend to give me a blister in the arch of my foot. Other than that, they’re nice in that they’re water proof and they slide on easily. They also have a back strap that holds them on my feet better than a slip on but still slip on rather easily.
I might try some moleskin, but I don’t think that works any better if it gets wet.

Do you like Birkenstocks? They have sandals apparently made from the same material as Crocs. Look for their "Eva" line of sandals.

Flip flops and only wear those because getting stranded on the deck during mid day without any shade is an experience not easily forgotten. :shock:

Water shoes! They are soft and mold to your feet nicely and don't move about in the water. SKippy wears them in the pool 'cause he's got the most tender feel known to mankind. I bought some for when we snorkle in strange places and I didn't want to step on anything icky.

I second water shoes! I got mine at Wal-Mart for about $10 I think. They're just basic black, but you can spend more and get cool colors. I wear them out to the pool, take them off to swim, then put them back on when I get out. They go on easily over wet feet, and no blistering! The soft material absorbs water, then dries in a snap.

Water shoes!
