* Never get sand stuck in your kicks again
* Stylish alternatives to flip-flops
* Perforated sneakers for men and women
Picking a pair of summer kicks for the beach is always a struggle. Flip flops are impossible to hike or drive in, but sneakers are too warm and get full of sand (that never seems to come out). The solution? Perforated sneakers. They look and feel like sneakers, but let you shake out all that sand after a day at the beach. Check out our favorite pairs below.
1. Not Rated Sibell
These perforated kicks add some comfy athleisure style to your beach outfit, and feature a monochrome colorway. Plus, they’re very reasonably priced at just $45.
2. Crocs CitiLane Roka Court
Crocs got a bad rap for their notoriously ugly (but now somehow kind of trendy) classic sandal design. However, they do know how to make a good looking shoe, as evidenced by these streamlined, perforated CitiLane sneakers.
3. Sperry Seaside Perfs
Sperry are experts when it comes to making seaside shoes, and these perforated sneakers are no exception. They feature a very modern silhouette and grey palette that’s easy to pair with swimsuits, dresses, or shorts.
4. Comfortiva Lyra
Another great perforated sneaker are these Comfortiva Lyras. They’re made of a high-quality perforated leather upper that’s as stylish as it is comfy, providing airflow and an exit route for sand.
5. Native Shoes Miles
The classic slip-on silhouette of these kicks gives them a true beach-goer style, while a supportive dual-density EVA sole makes them super comfy. These shoes also boast a vegan construction, which can be hard to come by when looking for stylish sneakers.
6. SKECHERS Skech Flex 2.0 Wentland
These Skechers shoes are a great choice if you enjoy runs or long walks on the beach, as they’re designed to allow for athletic capabilities while still having a lightweight mesh construction.
