Another day, another bizarre fashion item going viral. These "sock shoes" may look a little quirky, but according to reviews, they're true game-changers.
These bizarre-looking items are designed to be the best of both worlds. The comfort and flexibility of a sock, combined with the protection and grip of a shoe. They're useful for many different activities, including, "Yoga Training, beach, swimming, pool, weight training, wake-boarding, sailing, boating, kayaking, windsurfing, cycling, jogging, walking, fishing, beach volleyball, gardening, lawn, car-washing, and driving," as per the product description. And according to reviews, they're truly incredible.
"These were PERFECT for my trip to Kauai. The beach we were near had hidden rocks in the sand - big volcanic rocks that hurt to step on... except for ME in my fancy shoes. I wore them almost constantly for a week and they held up great under all kinds of stress. I'd totally buy them again. I only wish I had ordered them for everyone in my group. Great value, great product," wrote one big fan.
"I bought these shoes a couple of years ago before a river hike. UM, THESE ARE AWESOME. They lasted a long time and the only reason I bought these yellow ones was that I wanted a new color haha. My older pair did start to wear out in the toes from scraping them on rocks and such when hiking but still no holes in them. These shoes feel like socks but with enough of a sole that you can walk on gravel with no problem. It really is like walking barefoot. Also, these are the only water shoes that I have worn that do NOT let a bunch of debris into the shoe, making you constantly have to take it off to empty it or just deal with the irritant. You can play on the beach with minimal sand stuck between your toes," agreed another.
And reviews don't lie! At the time of writing, these shoes have a 4.4 out of 5-star rating based on over 70,000 reviews. You really can't argue with that.
