Wear flip flops: Flip flops are sleek and waterproof, making them one of the best footwear option during this season. “In monsoons, opt for water-friendly flip flops that can easily channel the water away and improve traction. Say no to closed shoes as they take time to dry and may harbour germs around the feet,” says Surabhi Agrawal, head – merchandising, Crocs India.

Comfortable sandals: The wave-inspired outsole design sandals are the best water-friendly shoes for monsoon adventure. They offer maximum breathability, while the adjustable straps and pull tabs at the heels offer quick on and offs.

Odour-resistant: Footwear takes time to dry during the rainy season, which may result in bad odour. To avoid such a situation, it is always better to rely on footwear that has odour resistant properties.
