I like wearing the all terrain sandal from Keen/Columbia etc. They are supportive like a shoe, open like a sandal, thick soled like a boot, and waterproof so you can walk through water. The toe is rubber capped to prevent mishaps on any surface. Comes in colors, comfy too! REI, Academy sells them for about $100 for men, women and kids. But I found mine at Show Cents Outlet last summer....like everything, styles/colors change every year and so you can save on last year's model. Stole 'em for $39!
