But now, rowers of lightweight shells and sculls have begun borrowing from the wardrobes of paddlers and divers, taking advantage of aqua socks and shoes to make their time on the water more comfortable. This footwear, made from insulating material like neoprene, sometimes has rubber soles for double-duty on land.
The slip-on shoes have pull-on tabs on both the front and back of the foot opening of the shoe. These Aqua Socks were sold in pink and purple in Toddler sizes 5-11. The recall includes Old Navy Toddler Girl Aqua Socks with style number 896452. A small tag inside the foot opening contains the style number (896452), size information and country of origin (China).
Rowers must consider whether their shell holds feet in place with sneakers or clogs, because clogs generally have more room for thicker aqua socks. And since legs, more than arms, power strokes, proper fit is important.
I’m not sure this even needs mentioning, but just to cover all the bases, don’t even think about Aqua Socks, which look like they were fashioned from the skins of colorful, blind eels. If you wear Aqua Socks, the thing you are saying to the world is you hold your nose when you jump into water, and if there were ear plugs available at the pool, you’d already be wearing them. Aqua Socks are for dorks.
