Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of waterproof shoes before — including the best water shoes for men, the best water shoes for women, and one writer’s favorite rain sandals — here, we’ve rounded up the best shower shoes, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated shower sandals

Nearly 1,000 reviewers describe these classic Crocs as “perfect.” “Crocs really are perfect, they are great in the shower,” one writes, adding “I don’t have to worry about slipping, especially when I use hair conditioner or body wash that is slippery, and I can wash my crocs at the same time I wash me.” One deployed soldier used regular flip flops for shower shoes until his wife sent him these. He writes that they “stay on my feet, and I can walk up and down stairs with wet feet without the fear of slipping or falling. And they dry off easily. If I ever need another pair of shower shoes, they will be Crocs for sure.” Many more appreciate that they don’t slip while wearing these, like one reviewer who notes it’s “easy to take feet out of shoe to wash feet. I’m able to get each foot sudsy (one at a time) with body wash and put each foot back into the shoe, without slipping.” While lots joke that they’re ugly, one reviewer defends Crocs’ utilitarian looks: “They’re stylish and functional. These shoes are the future. Be a trendsetter with Crocs, the shoes that should have never gone out of style.”
