The question many people ask is waterproof the same as water-resistant?
The answer is No.
Water-resistant shoes and waterproof shoes look similar when you buy, but they are totally made of different material.
Water resistant” shoes has a degree of resistant to water which is not 100% water resistant, while, waterproof shoes has 100 % water resistant even if you are swimming, taking a bath or show or you just drop the shoe inside water.
Water-resistant” is of lower end of the scale, (lower quality) whereas “waterproof” is on the higher end of the scale, (higher quality).
It doesn't mean water resistant shoes are not of good quality, but it mean you need to consider why you want to buy the shoe and what you want to use the shoe for!
Most flip flops or slides you buy should be waterproof, it is sensible to read though what the shoes are made of before buying!
Therefore, waterproof shoes are the best quality of shoes to buy and they last longer than water resistant shoes.
Buying a shoe is all about the quality and the authenticity!
