Trendtotting: Watershoes

Teva at ShopStyle

My local playground is filled with children of all ages wearing Crocs. With several styles to choose from, the shoes have become a favorite of parents and tots alike. But watching no fewer than three kids slide right out of their shoes and end up with scraped knees and elbows last weekend, I went on a quest for a functional and fitted waterproof shoe that could easily move between the local park, the sprinkler and the pool.

A quick search brought up more than a few that would serve any active toddler well, including my favorite of the bunch, the Teva Psyclone ($25), pictured in the middle. Its Neoprene fabric is used to manufacture wetsuits, so it dries fast, features a rubber sole and can easily be put on a wet, squirming foot.

I love those Tevas, but the baby's foot is still way too little. I guess bare feet is fine enough for now.

I bought $6 water shoes from Target for my daughter's twice a week sprinkler days at daycare. They are awesome! I also bought her some closed-toe water sandals from Lands End that are pretty awesome too, although I'm trying to keep those dry for now!

LL Bean makes a shoe like the Teva that comes in Toddler sizes. I had some for my daughter last year and she loved them.

Our son wore the exact same Teva last summer and they were terrific! We would have bought the same Tevas again this summer, but his daycare started a new rule: no open toe sandles OR Crocs. They said too many of the kids had accidents on the playground wearing Crocs. He now wears Stride Rite sandles with a closed toe.

What are the other shoes that are pictured? My daughter wears a size 9, and the Teva's start at size 10. She lives in her Crocs, but she has a ton of bumps & bruises from tripping in them, and I'd like to find something a little more sturdy.
