KEEN Women's Whisper Sandal

Most Comfortable Water Shoes for Women

Why people love it
  • A comfortable, protective pair of water shoes to take anywhere!
  • Rugged sole provided good support and cushioning
  • Use them for hiking, camping, boating, or swimming

Sizing can be a mixed bag, and the straps are prone to damage.


Performance: If you want a pair of water shoes for women that can keep up with any outdoor activity, these are the ones you're looking for. Thanks to their thick sole and built-in cushioning, you'll be comfortable as you walk, hike, or even run in wet conditions. The shoes offer good arch support and stability, even on rocky terrain. Wherever you're going to be, these water shoes will keep up with you.

They do, however, suffer issues with durability, and the straps/lacing system can break a bit too easily. The sizes offered by Keen are a bit strange, meaning it can take a bit of experimenting to get the right fit. However, once you get the size right, you'll find these are some of the most comfortable shoes, period!

Design:  These shoes are more sandal than hiking shoe, with a thick toe cap but open sides and back. Not only do the vent holes improve ventilation and drainage, but they'll enhance the odor-resistance of the shoes. You'll never have to worry about stinking shoes thanks to the open design.

The soles are thick enough to protect your feet on the rockiest terrain, but the shoes weigh surprisingly little. They even float, so you'll never have to worry about losing them. With their bright colors and snazzy style, they're a good choice for women who want to look their best. 

Price: Starting at a little over $50, these are on the pricier side of the shoe spectrum, but well worth it if you plan on doing a lot of walking or hiking and need reliable comfort.
