    ahhhh, yeah, I had on some nylon socks like you recommended lol but it seems like those just helped trap the sand against my skin lol

    I like your solution @SpecialTest sounds like a real solution to me lol

    but yeah, I dont think it would be as much of an issue if I had a wetsuit on, but it was a nice day out and didn't need a wetsuit for the snorkeling I was doing :(

    was really hoping for something I could wear like around town for the day...and then if I see a nice beach, hop in, snorkel around, or something for a bit...then dry off while walking around looking at stuff after...kind of thing

    will have to give them a try as true dive boots though :)

    So I made an observation today, while cleaning my boots from this past weekend... The inside is a honeycomb like material... And as we all know, honeycomb is great for trapping things we love, like honey... Unfortunately however, shore diving seems to be full of sand... Which as well also all know, is great at getting trapped in places it doesn't belong... Like honey combs... Long story short, these boots love to hold onto sand, which loves to turn into sand paper against your skin >.<
