The Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoes are wonderful water shoes, and if you’re anything like me, then you will love the convenience of being able to go on any aquatic adventure without having to worry about water building up in your shoes when you walk after getting them really wet from swimming or going to water classes such as deep water aerobics class whenever you want to have fun in the water or from spending the day at the water park.
I had to get new water shoes because the first kind I got were worn out and the laces kept untying, and in between the time looking for a pair I wasn’t using anything. I love deep water aerobics class but I hate feeling the slimy shower floor or feeling the rough pool wall while stretching so I thought it was time to buy some new water shoes. Of all the shoes I read about, these shoes stood above all the others – Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoe. I love these so much that I decided to share my experience and research info with you.
Quick-Fit Toggle to Secure Laces
Water shoes need to have a toggle to make sure the laces on the shoes can be tightened or loosened, and Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoes definitely has that. Water shoes that have regular laces that you tie are very inconvenient especially when you’re exercising in the pool and you have to keep re tying the laces several times but with these shoes you don’t have to worry about that.
You can make them as tight or as loose as you need to which is another reason the toggle is really great. The water shoes that you slip on don’t have this feature. They may be cheaper than these but you won’t get the convenience of them being adjustable like you do with these shoes.
Lightweight Midsole With Side Drainage Holes
Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 water shoes are very light, and has drainage holes on the side. I was very skeptical about their ability to drain properly since they look like sneakers however they drain perfectly. Water doesn’t build up inside them like I was afraid they would. I would have to say I was definitely surprised when it came to that.
These shoes are also very light weight. They won’t impair your ability to swim or do your water exercises. They also do not feel heavy when you walk while they are still wet. They are light weight wet and dry which is excellent.

Amazon Reviews & Scores From Customers
At the time I wrote this review there were 77 customer reviews on amazon and they gave the Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoes 4.3 stars out of a 5 star rating system.
Over all, the customers on amazon gave positive reviews for these shoes, however there were some negative comments on there. One person said, “The shoes have already been worn! The bottoms are dirty and the insides are dirty. This is disgusting. Pictures to be added.”
However, no one else complained about this happening to them, so I don’t think this usually happens and it didn’t happen to me. We’re all people here and everyone makes mistakes so it was probably a mistake that one of amazon’s employees made which really isn’t a complaint about the shoes themselves or how they perform. Other people said, “Best Water Shoes Ever,” and,“The shoes are great! They are very comfortable and have great grip …” and, “MUST BUY” and finally, “I Love Them”
This makes it really easy for me to vouch for the Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoes too.
Review Summary/ Conclusion
In summary, the Speedo Women’s Hydro Comfort 4.0 Water Shoes can handle most any water adventure or water exercise program you throw at it. They are very dependable and comfortable shoes. They are very well made and will last a long time. Most people that buy them are extremely happy with these water shoes and would recommend these shoes to other people.
However I do suggest that you buy the next size bigger than what you wear because they fit small and they don’t come in half sizes. I ordered an 8 which is the same size as the 7 1/2 running shoes I wear, which is good thing I did or I’d be sending them back for a different size. If you have wide feet or narrow feet then that’s not an issue because they can handle both types. If you wear a whole size then I suggest getting the next size up. These are the most comfortable water shoes I’ve tried. They are also great water park water shoes. I hope you enjoy these water shoes like I do.
