Water shoes from Ocean State job lot? Sometimes they have sandal types and are always under $20

I wear these.  Nike Natural Motion.  Free Run shoes.  Kinda a spandex material that holds tight to the skin.  Hardly any sand gets inside. They hold pretty well on a a variety of bottoms.  Lightweight. Dry fast. 

 

I got them on clearance but I think they run about $100.

The merrel hydro Mocs are similar to croc material but much better feel imo. The simms sandals I liked but don’t think they make them anymore

For sandy beach - barefoot but not all beaches are sandy so take it for what it's worth.   I too have tried sandals, beach shoes, dive boots and all of them would chafe the s**t out of me.  I've given up trying to find something.

budget: merrell hydro moc 

 

premium: keen h2 or other model...can wear em with wading socks too and strap them on tight enough so sand doesn't get between foot and sandal

I was so anti croc because of how dumb they look but man are they comfortable and great for beach fishing :worms:

I reluctantly picked up a pair of Croc sandals for $25, and they turned out to be much sturdier than they looked. Having no fabric to trap sand against skin, they didn't chafe either. And, they float. Looking now, they don't seem to be available. Crocs Men's Swiftwater River Sandal

I personally love these for sandy beaches, you can remove the insoles and wear your waders as well with them and have a tab up front to clip onto.  been using these for like 4 years now.  i have tried everything from Teva /Crocs/ booties and this has held up the best and worked the best imo.  the one piece like mold prevents from anything wearing out that is sewn on like other shoes.  saltwater beats up stuff and these held there own for me.
