You know, all kidding aside... going barefoot is much less taxing on you which I think you know and it does not take long to get the bottom of your feet acclimated.. If I had not started doing that earlier.. I think I probably could not have done the 8 mile barefoot since I would have had grapefruit blisters on the bottom of my feet. I know you are looking for ankle support but Orvis makes a sandal that does not pick up much sand and sells for 40 bucks.. with a little improvised ankle support to serve your needs that shoe is worth looking into. I would put it on in unfamiliar water.. otherwise I go barefoot all summer.
