Aqua Jogging Shoes: Improve Your Pool Workout Effectiveness

If you’re planning to be a frequent (or even occasional) aqua jogger, you’ll want to invest in a decent pair of aqua jogging shoes. While there’s no question you can aqua jog in your bare feet, swimming pools treated with chlorine tend to be rough on your skin …

To prevent your feet from getting chapped and irritated, foot protection in the water is a good idea. The same is true for your hands, which is why we recommend using aqua jogging gloves to protect your skin. The good news is, neither of these accessories are very expensive. Aqua jogging gloves run about $25 and swimming shoes (also known as aqua jogging shoes) are only slightly more …

So What Exactly Are Aqua Jogging Shoes?

Aqua running shoes are basically a specialized athletic shoe. Just as there are specific shoes for basketball, running, and indoor cycling classes, aqua jogging shoes are designed exclusively for water use.

Caution: Whatever you do, don’t make the same mistake I did and try to aqua jog in regular athletic shoes!
Within minutes, the athletic shoes got water logged, very soggy, and heavy. Further, when they dried out later they never quite fit as well again. I learned a lesson the hard way … only use shoes specifically designed for your style of workout!

Shoes for use in the water are designed to be efficient in the pool, and drain away water. They’re sleek in design and are exceptionally lightweight. They don’t keep your feet 100% dry, but they continually drain out water so you’re not struggling with excess water captured in your shoes …

One other positive attribute … these shoes are very durable. One pair should last you for years, if not a lifetime. They dry out very rapidly, usually within a few minutes, so they’re easy to transport and carry in your gym bag …

More About Aqua Jogging Shoes …

One of the unique aspects of these aqua running shoes is the design of the soles. They’re affixed with a pattern on the bottom that’s designed to move water away from the shoes and your feet. This design is meant to help you focus on your form and your workout instead of worrying about your feet …

Of course, you can use these shoes for other water based exercise too. They’re equally efficient whether your feet are touching the pool bottom or not …

As with any type of athletic shoes, you’ll find a wide range of price points. We recommend you don’t spend a lot of money, because a good reliable pair of aqua jogging shoes will run about $50, give or take a few dollars. Once you use them, you’ll understand their value, and your feet will thank you!
