Walking on Sand
Sometimes walking on the beach barefoot may not be an option for you .Whether personal choice or having the right type of footwear is needed.
A Pair of thongs ( flip flops ) might be the answer, but depending on your arrival at the beach you don’t know if you will be greeted with soft of hard sand .
Shoes for Beach walking
I found walking on the beach in a good pair of shoes is great for my walking experience, There is a range of waterproof options available to you in a Sandal or a covered running shoe . But posture and gait need to be well supported . I had a thought earlier on in my beach walking that an old pair of runners would do the trick . My thought process was if i wore my new runners they would get ruined . No ! Get some water resistant runners/walking shoes if its an issue .Well supported walking shoes are best for the uneven surfaces .
