Reef Shoes at Costco!

Many of you have been recommending purchasing reef shoes. At our Costco (Carlsbad, CA) today, we were able to purchase a couple of pairs of Speedo Water Performance shoes. I hope these will work. They were $30 each and come in both M/F sizes, if anyone is interested. They're comfortable and look like sneakers. Only 3 more months until Etu Moana! We are so excited!

Yeah, the prices for "reef walker" type shoes is all over the place from very expensive to dirt cheap.

Personally, we go for the cheap ones at Wal-Mart, K-Mart etc and usually pay about $6-7. They are not necessarily the highest quality, but the fact is for as little as we use them (at most a couple of weeks a year) they suit us fine. Even if they only last us 2-3 trips it works out to what maybe $2/year/pair? Shoe prices (especially any type of aports related shoes) are often rediculusly overpriced and there's wayyyyyyy too much "trendiness" and fashion involved in the whole sportsware industry - all as an excuse to jack up the prices and take their customers for ride.
