The 10 Best Shower Shoes for Women
This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in February of 2018. Between gym locker rooms, hostels, public pools, student dormitories, and campgrounds, there are lots of opportunities for your feet to pick up fungi and other nasty stuff. These shower shoes will protect you from all kinds of health dangers, while keeping you comfortable and, perhaps, preventing slips and falls. Some are even attractive enough to wear outside, as well. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Although they aren't known for being particularly stylish, we think it's tough to top the Crocs Classic Clog for showers, as well as for any other wet, casual environment. They offer more protection for the top of the foot than most standard flip flops do, as well as more traction, to boot. Plus, they come in an extensive range of colors, so you can match them easily to your bathing suit, gardening outfit, and more. They aren't exactly inexpensive, however, which is why we kept the Amoji Unisex Clogs. The Amoji aren't quite as durable, but for casual use, they're fine.
If you need something a bit more fashionable, there's the Crocs Kadee II or the Teva Hurricane Drift. These are lightweight and attractive, but as with many options made from EVA foam and similar materials, they could shrink if left in the sun or a very hot car. Or, if you have a more athletic style, consider the Adidas Adilette Aqua Slide or the Nike Kawa. They won't take up too much room in your gym bag, and they should dry relatively quickly.
Finally, for those whose main concern is safety, we added the Secure Slip Resistant. Specifically designed for stability, they offer good traction; this doesn't make the wearer invincible, however, so caution and fall prevention techniques are still important. It's also crucial that they are the right size. If the mesh upper is too loose on the foot, they will flop around and could present a hazard.
Vibram FiveFingers V-Aqua The Vibram FiveFingers V-Aqua bills itself as an "aquatic tool," since they were created to make moving across all kinds of wet terrain both safe and comfortable. They'll easily take you from the shower to wet hiking trails and back, but don't be surprised if the articulated toes take some getting used to. us.vibram.com
