Here are the 5 best shower shoes for college, because you cannot let your feet ever touch that floor
I’m just going to say what everyone here knows: Shared college bathrooms are disgusting. Like, disgustingly disgusting beyond your wildest dreams — which is why shower shoes are as essential to college dorm living as a set of Twin XL sheets. And yes, you need shower shoes even if you only share your bathroom with five people. I mean, do you want to grow some gross foot fungus because of a dorm shower?
Beyond keeping your feet (and body, mind and soul) safe from the icky shower floor, shower shoes also provide non-slip support and extra comfort. And they don’t all look like the basic $2 flip-flops of our youth. The world of shower shoes includes pillowy slides, special flip-flops with drain holes, colorful multi-use sandals and even Crocs. Yes, Crocs.
Below, I rounded up the best shower shoes for college — all under $50.
Look, the waterproof Birkenstock Arizona EVA Sandals should be considered one of the Seven Wonders — they're that good. I bought my first pair five years ago, and my colorful collection has only grown. A key thing with these shoes is that they’re incredibly lightweight yet super supportive. They make standing for a 30-minute Everything Shower (IYKYK) feel like you’re floating on clouds, which is excellent.
They also come in one zillion fun colors and patterns and feature the same famous Birkenstock contoured footbed as the brand's pricier corkbed sandals.
A flip-flop is just a pure chef's kiss when it comes to shower shoes. These $15 waterproof flip-flops from Amazon take the classic style up a notch with some shower-shoe essentials. Unlike other flip-flops (and shoes on this list), they have a handful of drain holes for a super quick drying experience. Users have said that their shoes are basically dry when they get out of the shower. And, like, wet shoes and feet that won't dry is the worst thing about shower shoes.
I mean, the shower flip-flops currently have a 4.5 out of 5-star rating based on 2,600 reviews. So, yeah, people love them. And they're affordable! A true gem.
Before you say anything negative about Crocs, they are officially back in style. And everyone knows that Crocs are Crocs — and that's why the world loves them. Beyond just being Crocs, the Classic Clogs are truly excellent for showering. The ventilation ports add both breathability and help the water drain a lot faster. The back strap makes sure that your foot is secure in the shower, and the closed toe will save you from any broken nails and cuts if you drop your jumbo-size conditioner bottle or your razor. (Been there. It's not fun.)
If you looked up “pillow slide” in the dictionary, this best-selling Amazon option would be front and center. I mean, just look at the simple design and the bouncy cushioning! Can't you already feel how comfy and cute they are? And they're under $25, so you can definitely grab more than one color.
As far as shower shoes that are both iconic and functional, there's no other option than the classic striped adidas slides. They're comfortable, waterproof (duh) and super lightweight. And as fashion history has shown us, there are so many ways to style them. Also, did you know that they come in fun colors like hot pink as well as basic black? I didn't, and I'm shook.
An adult man once hailed as a child prodigy in China has decided to depend on his parents and live his entire life without a regular job. Rise of the “prodigy”: Born in 1995, Zhang Xinyang first gained acclaim as the “little prodigy” when he was 2.5 years old for being able to read over 2,000 Chinese characters. At age 5, Zhang was enrolled in a primary school but was bumped to second grade in less than a month.
The Japanese man who made headlines throughout the year for chronicling his journey as a “dog” has apparently flunked an agility course. What happened: The man, known to his followers as Toco, posted a series of photos on Instagram this week showing what appeared to be moments of failure in a Crufts-style agility course. About Toco: Toco rose to fame in 2022 after commissioning Zeppet, a Japanese model and sculpture company, to create a hyperrealistic rough collie costume for 2 million yen (around $16,000 at the time).
The Russian missile ship the Askold, which was destroyed on Nov. 4 after a Ukrainian missile struck the shipyard in Kerch, on the east coast of the occupied Crimean peninsula, will not be repaired, a Telegram news channel has claimed.
A woman in China received an unexpected 430,000-yuan (approximately $60,300) restaurant bill after she inadvertently shared the ordering code online, leading others to place food orders using it. What happened: The woman, surnamed Wang, mistakenly posted her table’s ordering QR code on her WeChat page while intending to share food photos of the hotpot restaurant she visited with her friend on Nov. 23, according to South China Morning Post. Despite limiting the post’s visibility to only her contacts, many people had scanned the code and placed fake orders, later resulting in the $60,300 bill for 1,850 portions of fresh duck blood, 2,580 portions of squid and 9,990 portions of shrimp paste.
So much for Pep Guardiola’s insistence at the start of the season that Manchester City are heading to their fourth successive title. After a comprehensive defeat by a magnificent Aston Villa, his side have slumped to fourth place in the table, six points behind the leaders Arsenal. Here’s how much they are drifting off the pace: Manchester United – a side who have spent much of the season serving up fodder for comedy writers – are now only three points behind them.
Yang Guang's rise from a village farmer to an Audi-driving businessman with two properties hinged largely on one of the most coveted documents in China: an urban hukou, or residency permit. The 45-year-old who lives in the central city of Zhengzhou likens the permit - which typically ties a person's access to health, education, loans and other services to their birthplace - to a "cattle ear-tag the state clipped us with". When Zhengzhou in the early 2000s temporarily allowed those who bought an apartment to also qualify for a city hukou, Yang seized the opportunity, allowing him to register a business and open stores across Henan province's capital, transforming his fortunes.
Chinese warships have docked for the first time at Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base, which is undergoing a Chinese-funded upgrade that has drawn concerns from the United States over its potential role in expanding China’s overseas military footprint.
