Wow, that's a word I haven't heard for a long time!
Yes, they're like water shoes. I've seen fisherman use them for navigating wet/slippery rocks. I've seen them here at Walmart, K-Mart, those kinds of stores; price may be $15.00 or so, but not positive.
I guess it's just what you're used to wearing at the beach. I don't think they are "necessary".
Have a wonderful time in Hawaii!
