Which are the water-friendly styles?
  • Anilao, Laiya, Mabini, Malinao, and Santa Fe pairs are water-friendly.
  • Water-friendly sandals can tolerate splashes of water and minimal dipping, making them perfect for beachside and poolside activities. However, they should not be submerged under water for long periods of time as they are not completely water-resistant. Please also remember to let them dry completely before storage.
