Strap on Your Sandals and Head to the River

One of the best ways to beat the heat in Northwest Arkansas is by spending the day on the river. NWA boasts plenty of great of rivers and streams that are perfecting for paddling, fishing, or just lounging at a swimming hole. Regardless of how you like spending your time on the river you need a good pair of outdoor sandals. Not a dinky pair of paper thin flip-flops, but a proper pair of outdoor sandals that will last through every shuttle, approach, portage, and ford.

There are several reasons why you need a solid, sturdy pair of outdoor sandals.

A good pair of sandals can be super convenient on the river. You can pull up, hop out, walk straight to the water, and dive in. Sandals that strap onto your feet won’t get damaged by water and they dry quickly. You don’t have to stop and change, remove, or put on footwear at any point. This might only save a grand total of 5 minutes throughout the day, but you’ll appreciate the seamless transition from water to land.

Unlike flip-flops, a pair of sandals made for the outdoors will stay secure all day long. This is key for the hike to the river as well as the time you spend in the water. Outdoor sandals provide good footing on slippery river rocks and in swift-moving currents. They also protect your feet from sharp rocks, thorns, sticks, etc. in and out of the water.

Can you get by on the river without a pair of sandals? Definitely. But having a proper pair of sandals made for outdoor pursuits will greatly improve your experience on the water!
