Teva Omnium Closed-Toe Sandal

Score

  • Comfort – 7/10
  • Support – 9/10
  • Traction – 9/10
  • Durability – 9/10

Are you a hiker looking for a lightweight sandal to pack on this summer? But you don’t want to compromise on durability or support? Then the Omnium from Teva would be our top recommendation.

When it comes to construction, it resembles a well-made hiking shoe. The seams are nicely seeded (so you don’t have to worry about broken straps), the outsole is firmly attached to the midsole, and the rubber outsole easily handles some bumps along the way.

Apart from that, the EVA midsole and the Shoc Pad in the heel reduce the pressure on your feet and offer you all-round support.

The outsole has an aggressive stud design that allows it to eat through the terrain. However, just like with the KEEN Newport, you may occasionally slip on wet terrain.

The comfort is a bit average as the footbed starts to bite after a long day of hiking. (It is recommended that you wear a pair of socks.)

If a sandal is the best alternative for a long summer hike, you can’t go wrong with the Teva Omnium.
