Patrick Great shoes for open water swimmers. United Kingdom 6 August 2019 - These shoes are very easy to put on and take off and fit comfortably. They protect the feet when entering or leaving the water over rocks etc. Most importantly for me, they don't compromise my kick while swimming; if anything, they make it more effective thanks, presumably, to the small fin at the front. I'm delighted with these shoes. Helpful
Bobby Great pair of swim shoes United Kingdom 13 October 2019 - Best pair of swim shoes I've ever had. Really comfortable in and out of the water. Worth paying that little bit extra for these shoes.

Francesco: 5 stars 17 July 2019 - shoes for walking and swimming .. finally -
Annamary: No fins at last 19 August 2019 - Excellent -
Markus  times a completely different water sports shoe  July 18, 2019  - The Aqualander Zen are finally here. Until now, water shoes have always been cut very closely at the front, the Aqualander Zen has a wide toe box, very comfortable. When walking on the beach the "fin" in front does not bother you, you can clearly feel the propulsion in the water. The narrow heel holds the shoe securely on the foot and prevents small stones from entering the shoe from above. The sole offers very good grip, both on tiles and on other surfaces. I bought it in orange, finally something other than black or blue, a real eye-catcher. Let's see if it still appears in other colors.
Amazon customer: Impossible not to have them when you go on the rocks October 14, 2019 - Exceptional article, something extra even when you swim -
Luigi: Good compromise! June 13, 2019 - Very comfortable and ergonomic after a while I wore it no longer feel to the feet they adapt completely, another positive aspect and that do not sweat the feet when walking, in swimming they are as effective as mini-fins. Overall very satisfied with the purchase of the product with excellent value for money -

Amazon customer: Excellent quality and comfort June 9, 2019 - Valid and effective product for the sea ... comfortable and stay up very well. Great shoes for the beach! -
Sebi: Highly recommended June 13, 2019 - Great product -
Ilaria Comfortable and functional beach shoes 7 July 2019 - I found the Aqualender Zen of beach shoes very comfortable and at the same time functional; they allowed me to take long walks on rocky beaches and at the same time to swim as if I had real fins on my feet. Absolutely recommended! -
Rosanna Valid alternative to fins 13 June 2019 Professional and comfortable liner in everything both for walking and for swimming. A valid alternative to fins and slippers. Finally some finials that are in the suitcase. Recommended -
Valeria Comfortable and functional shoes 19 June 2019 - Comfortable and functional shoes for walking without problems on the rocks and diving into the water. For swimming you also perceive a certain propulsive force, greater in back than in free style, but in any case an excellent help. Recommended!
Davide Great product, good materials and also beautiful 24 June 2019 - I am very satisfied with the Aqualander Zen. very comfortable, fit like a glove and serve both outside and inside the water .. it's a brilliant invention !!! I put them in the parking lot and removed after the bath .. no other shoe does it !!!
Andrea Extreme versatility 24 June 2019 - versatility is the strong point of these little shoes!
Beautiful and very comfortable shoes !! Functional on the beach, functional in the water both for walking on the rocks and for swimming thanks to the mini fin (excellent idea) !!!
Daniel very comfortable both on the water and on the beach 26 June 2019T - Very comfortable and really open up new possibilities ... I could not walk, dive and swim without changing my shoe !

Fonzi To have to take a bath July 20, 2019 - A great pity product that continues to rain and I can't swim.
Ceccato SCARPA AQUALANDER ZEN 18 September 2019 - PURCHASED BECAUSE I LIKE YOUR SHAPE, THE SHOE IS LIGHT AND FLEXIBLE TO WALK ON LITTLE SANDWICHES. INSIDE THE RIGID CARDBOARD BOX IS A SHEET THAT EXPLAINS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SHOE (Type of material etc.) AND HOW THE IDEA OF THE SHAPE WAS BORN. I DIDN'T USE IT TO SWIM (I AM NOT ABLE) BUT I BELIEVE THAT IT WORKS ALSO FOR THIS TYPE OF USE THAT IS ITS MAIN. TO BE HIGHLIGHT THAT IT IS MADE IN ITALY. I STILL ADD THAT ON PRODUCTS OF THIS TYPE THE JUDGMENT IS ALWAYS VERY SUBJECTIVE.
Visa Top for walking and hiking 4 August 2019 - Exceptional for walking on gravel, rocks, worn for an excursion on a promontory with different backgrounds, they also give grip on dirt, the top! For swimming I found them useful above all as a frog. The measures are slightly abundant, the ideal is that they adhere perfectly to the foot. Highly recommended
Angelo Aqualander zen excellent article 9 August 2019 - These shoes are almost perfect, congratulations to those who designed them, comfortable to wear and to take off without performing great maneuvers, on a personal and subjective level I would add a detail but in general they are excellent
Michele Top! Also great for walking on the beach or on pebbles. They help with the swim August 18, 2019 - I bought them for my son and we took them to Florida. Use with waves to speed up the bodyboard and work great. I advise you to measure your foot well and to take the exact length or even slightly small because in the water they become more comfortable like the fins. Fair price
Alberto Highly recommended 12 June 2019 - Great impression, some small imperfections that indicate the artisan production process .. the fit is comfortable and the feeling of walking barefoot protected is very pleasant .. I tried it today and swimming has improved .. highly recommended , I use only one shoe outside and inside the water
Vittorio Swimming and walking great 14 June 2019 - Really excellent. A completely new design makes them comfortable for walking but above all for swimming. Arrived yesterday and try today in Liguria (pebble and rocky beach), they change lives. Advice
Roberto Buone 29 October 2019 - They are well made and comfortable Perhaps a little too thin the bottom that makes you feel all the roughness of the ground. Helpful
SellOttO Comfort, protection and safety 1 September 2019 - Very comfortable both for walking and for swimming, highly recommended for the protection and safety that assure you in all marine contexts (hot beach, annoying stones, dangerous rocks, slippery rocks, insidious corals,. \ t ...). Congratulations and thank you very much Aqualander Zen for your fantastic marine solution
Paolo Perfette 26 July 2019 - Irreplaceable for rocks, sea or rocky beaches. In the presence of sand, some granules come in, but they rise and return in a moment. The only negative note is the lack of other colors, when I bought there was only black , and the lack of small numbers for children. Excellent purchase.
Amazon customer Finally a unique aquatic shoe for many uses. June 25, 2019 First fundamental thing: I ordered my number and fits perfectly. They are so comfortable that I could have kept them at home as slippers. I can't wait to try them tomorrow at the beach and Saturday at the lake with the dogs. No sooner said than done! I carry them with me almost always !!!
Stefano great 13 September 2019 great product ... comfortable and very practical shoes!
Alessandro Smart! 1 November 2019 - Comfortable on the rocks, useful and practical in swimming as opposed to those in neoprene, they help almost like pinnette. They are easily worn like fins, but you don't have to walk like a duck out of the water. The only small sore point is the permeability to sand and fine gravel that in that situation force them to wear them off. Helpful
Alberto COMFORT June 28, 2019 - I tried the Acqualanders on a beach in Liguria with stones and pebbles. They avoided burning my feet and allowed me to enter the water without having to pay attention to the stones and therefore without hurting my feet. They also adapt very well to the shape of the foot. Very useful and comfortable.

Aqualander, ultimate fin shoe design,
conceived and made in Italy

Beach swimmers need water shoes for easy walking on pebbles and rough terrain, improved grip,  feet protection,  water drainage and easy maintenance.
Unfortunately all the beach shoes on the market don't care about hydrodynamics. So they are a drag while you swim and actually remove the pleasure of swimming freely.
Aqualander is completely different and new
Aqualander is not a beach shoe that hinder swimming.

Aqualander is not a small fins that prevent you from walking.

walk, run, dive 'n swim better: seamlessly

AQUALANDER GOLD WINNER ISPO AWARD 2017 MUNICH

change the way we live the seashore

Wherever and whoever you are

Aqualander protects from hot sand or pebbles on the beach!  Corals, sea urchins, rocks in shallow water or stingfish hidden in the sand will not be a problem.  You'll swim better than  barefoot and the drag of other sea shoes will not bother you anymore!

Coasteering, seashore exploring

The new way to experience the seashores: with your Aqualander shoes you can explore the coast walking or swimming, in freedom and safety, in a natural and seamless way.

It's the natural coasteering

SUP and windsurfing

Even water sports take advantage of Aqualander shoes: more grip on the board and protected feet for your tricks. But if you fall you'll swim like a pro and get the right push for getting back in the race. 

Wave surfing

Surfers have discovered that Aqualander Zen shoes enhance the grip on the board, provide protection and give that extra boost in kicking that sometimes you need to take a wave.

Aqualander: the ultimate amphibious design

Patented form and concepts
Aqualander is a hydrodynamic water shoe, not a short fin or a plain sea shoe. No other water shoe has the features of Aqualander and will never have them because Aqualander shoes are patented in their form and concept.
Anatomical natural shape
Aqualander allows you to walk in an absolute natural and comfortable way. The small protrusion on the tip does not hit the ground.
The models have a skin shoe style, with anatomical internal space tight to the foot but wide for the fingers.
Hydrodynamic efficiency
The hydrodynamic tip removes the whirls and increases the thrust compared to the barefoot.
While they do not increase your thrust as much a swim fin, no performance comparison is possible with other water shoes that actually decrease or delete the feet's thrust.
Moreover in Zen model, the upper 
design flanked by three ribs, canalizes the water flows.
Four styles swim training.
The small projection of Aqualanders is a prolongation of the upper of the foot and helps the swimmer to use the same technique of barefoot swimming, different from swimming with fins.
You will feel better the thrust of the foot to improve performances in every swimming styles.
Beginners
Beginners who learn swimming with fins, sometimes than have difficulty to swim without them. Learning to swim with Aqualander prepares you to swim better barefoot and helps you to learn quicker and easier.
Comfort and protection
Aqualanders have a complete shoe and not just a strap behind the heel, so they are more comfortable and protective than short fins or flip-flops.
Perfect size choice
sizes length chart of Aqualander is spaced of 6.5 mm. (Zen model) or 10mm (Fit model)
Almost all fins and most of sea-shoes have a chart spaced every two sizes. (13mm)
You will then find the right size of Aqualander much closer to your ideal size.

If you need water shoes, you need Aqualander

Water park, pools

If you don't need only protection but also want to swim, in pools you'll discover that Aqualander gives more power to your kicking, don't change the sensations of free swimming and will make you feel a better swimmer

Kayak, rafting, canyoning, etc.

Whenever you need water shoes you may also need to swim and protect your bare feet without losing sensitivity.   Why then settle for something less than Aqualander?

.."During my pool tests, I sometimes meet people who refuse to use water shoes or short fins.
They say that water shoes reduce the feet's thrust, while short fins inhibit the natural swim styles.
They are right, plain water shoes create strong resistance to advancement and don't push, so often people prefer to keep their legs still to save effort.
Short fins are designed to give much more thrust than the barefoot, but induce to a different posture and movements of the legs compared to natural swimming. Short Fins also hinder breaststroke swim and allow you to walk only for short distances or in an inconvenient or ridiculous way" 
And that's why I invented Aqualander water shoes

The Aqualander project:
Seashore explore and coasteering

The Aqualander project stems from the desire to explore the sea coasts in the most simple and natural way. The sea coasts can be explored by walking or swimming. But sometimes you will have to walk over shallow rocks or even climb, dive or jump in the water.

Beach shoes available until now create drag while swimming and nullify the thrust of the foot. There was a need for a shoe that in addition to protecting during the walk, would not create drag but help the swimming.
The Aqualander shoe models are equipped with a hydrodynamic projection that reduces resistance to forward motion while swimming, provides a small increase of the thrust compared to the barefoot and does not hamper when walking because it's reduced length does not interfere with the ground. Coasteering with Aqualander shoes allows you to carry the smallest snorkeling equipment and to explore nature freely.

These beach shoes also meet the different needs of beachgoers and water sports enthusiasts.
In fact, they protect the feet from rough grounds and on pebble beaches, protect from marine organisms in the shallow waters and at the same time improve the grip of the feet over a rock or a surfboard. Aqualander let you walk and run on a beach of pebbles as on a sandy beach, and then dive and swim seamlessly.

As opposed to other beach shoes, the Aqualanders will increase the performance, durability and ease of your swimming, help also the less experienced swimmers and will make you feel a better swimmer.
As opposed to fins The Aqualanders will let you retain the feeling of natural swimming.
