Good House Slipper For Damp Climate,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Speedo Men's Surfwalker Pro All-Purpose Water Shoe (Shoes)
I've been wearing these water shoes as "house slippers" for the past 10 years. Sure, they eventually wear out, but I have found that they are a great, inexpensive, all-purpose, all-weather, indoor/outdoor shoe suitable for year-round wear in a damp climate. I haven't noticed the odor/poor durability issues mentioned by other reviewers, but remember: these are designed as water shoes for beach wear. Anything more that you get from them should be considered a bonus. I've been getting my bonus for 10 years, based on daily wear - and especially yard work in sometimes wet and soggy, coastal Georgia. I go through 2 or 3 pairs a year; however, in my opinion - for the amount of wear that I DO get out of them - they are well worth the money.

They are not slippers,so reviewing them as if they were good slippers doesn't help,These are water shoes that wear out rapidly and in my oppinion are not good. Don't buy these if you want water shoes,they don't last as long as 7.00 dollar ones from walmart.

But I USE them as slippers - as can anybody else. And if you read my post carefully, you'll see that I wasn't reviewing them AS slippers (as indicated by my comments as to their outdoor wear). I still say BUY THEM. I've tried the Wal-Mart variety - the comfort and wear aren't even close.

I don't agree with you, D. I have a pair, though not this brand, that I've been using as slippers for years and they are my preferred slipper. It's all-purpose footwear. Since I was looking for a pair to use AS SLIPPERS, his review was helpful to me.

What I need is to get them on quickly at the beach (winter swimming) and then wear them home over sand, boardwalk, sidewalk. I'm not going to go heavy on them but I need them to double as casual shoes for short periods.
