The Best Water-Friendly Sandals for Kids
Posted on May 20 2022
The weather is slowly but surely warming up, and it seems like everyone is starting to plan for summer and any upcoming holidays; we've been in full sandal mode here at Little Lily's recently, and we've had lots of requests for water-friendly sandals. Water-friendly sandals are great if you'll be on the beach or by the pool a lot over the summer - they can withstand splashes of water without getting ruined but are still supportive enough to be worn out and about on a daily basis. We've included our favourite styles in this blog post, with plenty of options for both boys and girls!
Available in Navy, Yellow & Seashell Pink
Definitely one of our bestsellers, the Bobux Zap Sandal is a great all-rounder; it features a fast-drying water-friendly leather upper, and the front is left unlined to optimise the quick-dry effect. The heel is lined and padded for optimal comfort, and the closed toe gives extra protection for little feet. The stylish cut-out design gives extra breathability during hot weather. The Zap Sandal is a firm favourite with parents of first walkers!
Available in sizes EU 20 (UK 3.5) to EU 26 (UK 8.5)
Available in Silver/Candy, Blueberry/Neon & Guava/Mist
The Summit Sandal from Bobux is the perfect choice if your child loves being outdoors; it's an action sandal for all terrain adventures, and features bungy elastic to accommodate different foot widths. The adjustable ankle strap gives extra support and comfort, and the flexible sole gives plenty of grip for exploring! These sandals are made using water-friendly leather for softness and durability.
Available in sizes EU 24 (UK 7) to EU 30 (UK 12)
Available in Blueberry, Yellow, Sapphire & Navy
The older sibling of the Zap sandal, Tidal is perfect for confident walkers; this sandal is made from fast-drying water-friendly leather, unlined at the front to optimise the quick-dry effect, and lined at the heel to keep growing feet comfortable. Little feet are protected by a closed-toe design, while cut-outs in the premium leather act as vents to improve breathability. A classic and stylish option to keep kids comfortable all summer long!
Available in sizes EU 22 (UK 5) to EU 31 (UK 12.5)
Made with a lightweight material, these sandals will withstand splashes of water and are a fab style for exploring the beach or chilling by the pool! The chunky flexible sole has plenty of grip so is great for active outdoor adventures, but these sandals will look equally as good paired with a dress or skirt. The on-trend leopard print design is perfect for dressing up or down!
Available in sizes EU 26 (UK 8.5) to EU 35 (UK 2.5)
Available in Navy/Orange & Navy/Pink
The perfect sandal for beach holidays, this style is made from water-friendly, quick-drying, antibacterial and durable materials. These outdoor-style sandals have been made with a water-friendly and breathable design, and can be worn in and out of the water; there are protective guards on the toe and heel to keep children comfortable all day. The ultimate active sandal for kids!
Available in sizes EU 24 (UK 7) to EU 33 (UK 1)
Available in 14 different styles/colours
Finally, everyone's favourite - Igor jelly sandals! While we wouldn't recommend these sandals be worn all the time (due to not being as supportive as some of the other styles), they're perfect for a day at the beach or a dip in the pool. They're made using a super soft and flexible rubber so are extra quick-drying!
Available in sizes EU 20 (UK 3.5) to EU 32 (UK 13)
