Rather than use clunky hiking boots for simple hikes across perhaps more forgiving terrain, I always prefer closed hiking sandals. For one thing, they allow air into my feet and the tough hardy soles give me grip on wet rock or across a pebble-dashed ocean front.
Teva has always been a consistently good brand for outdoor hiking and these Kimtah Sandals are no exception to the rule. My last pair was over 5 years old and the only sign of wear and tear was one of the toggle closers had lost some of its grip and caused the sandal to loosen up a little.
The Kimtah comes in a neutral Turkish coffee colour with leather waterproof uppers and a strong Spider 365 rubber outsole that also protects the toe end. The back of the sandal collapses easily to allow you to slide your foot in and the toggles pull it in to fit your foot very snugly.
This new pair had a baptism of fire with a week in Cuba. They withstood the rigours of Old Havana with ease and managed to keep the Atlantic salt at bay courtesy of being treated with Microban; a zinc-based microbial which deals with uncomfortable odour issues.
These Teva Kimtah sandals are ideal all-purpose uncovered foot companions and simply will not let you down.
