Product Summary

There are a lot of specific design features that stick out in this style of sandal. The outsole has 4 millimeter multi-directional lugs and sticky rubber so that you can remain standing on any terrain, whether wet or dry. They have placed the cut-outs on the side in a strategic fashion so that any water that comes in can quickly drain out, but the shoe is structured enough that your foot isn’t sliding around.

With the outer pieces working hard, they haven’t skipped over what’s in the middle. This sandal includes a rubberized EVA midsole that will cushion your foot while also helping it to respond comfortably to whatever type of ground you might be walking on.
