Who should buy the Astral Filipe

Hikers who have sandals listed at the top of their to-bring list had better pay attention to what the Astral Filipe has to offer. It is a solid option if you:

  • Prefer a hiking sandal that provides quality comfort and performance whether on trails or city pavements.
  • Prefer a hiking sandal that has a removable ankle strap that, when taken out, transforms the lightweight sandal into a flip-flop.
  • Prefer a hiking sandal that makes adventuring over rough terrain comfortable and secure.

Offers adequate sticking power 

For surface traction, Astral designers equipped the Filipe with a company-exclusive outsole. Based on the G.15 compound, this non-marking component offers adequate sticking power with the help of its blocky protrusions (a.k.a lugs).

Excellent grip on wet surfaces

It also went through siping, allowing it to deliver grip on wet surfaces.

Simplistic yet sturdy upper

Synthetic leather constitutes most of Filipe’s simplistic yet sturdy upper. Its moisture-wicking underside, or liner, is made entirely of knit fabric. The sandal’s toe post, on the other hand, is crafted using nylon webbing.

Provides reflector for visibility

For visibility, especially during nighttime adventures, Astral engineers furnished the front end of the main strap with a star-shaped reflector.
