Bottom line

Teva designers have done it once again with the Hurricane Sock. Indeed, they were able to produce something immensely breathable, comfortable, and durable. And this is not factoring in the sandal’s mesmerizing looks yet. With all that said, it still has a couple of downsides, the more concerning of which has to be its lengthwise fit. Nonetheless, the Hurricane Sock is yet another remarkable Teva product, thanks to its excellence in both form and function.

Facts

The Teva Hurricane Sock is a hiking sandal built specifically for adventurers who require extra protection in their escapades. Its sock-like upper is engineered extra breathable to make every stride as airy and comfortable as possible.

It has a single-piece midsole for underfoot cushioning and a proprietary outsole for traction. Together, they make up the sandal’s sole unit. This unified component is rockered both at the front and the back for enhanced walking comfort on flat surfaces.

Teva’s Hurricane Sock is a relatively true-to-size hiking sandal for men. It comes in a range of half and whole sizes. It is offered in D – standard width. A secure and customized fit is made possible by the footgear’s adjustable Velcro straps. 

The Teva Hurricane Sock’s supply of surface traction comes from its lightweight outsole, called Durabrasion (also found in the Teva sandals Hurricane 4 and Hudson). It is made entirely of highly durable rubber. Its low-profile lugs provide wearers with the right amount of grip over a variety of terrain types, especially on loose- or soft-soiled surfaces.

Owners are promised adequate balance and comfort over rugged terrain with the Hurricane Sock’s hardwearing midsole. It is made of EVA or ethylene-vinyl acetate—a kind of material foam-like in form and characterized by high resistance to weight and pressure. Teva engineers slipped a nylon shank in its midfoot zone to reinforce its structure further, thereby giving owners extra arch support. Right on top of it is a removable footbed for additional comfort underfoot.

The breathable upper of the Teva Hurricane Sock is a combination of knit fabric and Jacquard webbing. Its forefoot region has a tighter weave for improved toe protection, while its vamp section is looser to promote breathability. Two adjustable straps engineered with hook-and-loop fasteners make up its lockdown system.

Teva’s presence in the hiking world has expanded significantly through the years—a fact evident in their growing portfolio of quality hiking sandals. Two of such kicks are the Hurricane Sock and the Hurricane XLT2. Their differences are as follows:

Upper. The Hurricane Sock’s upper is shoe-like as opposed to the Hurricane XLT2’s strappy enclosure. Wearers needing extra protection from the elements might benefit more from the featured sandal than its rival.

Weight. Both Teva offerings encourage hikers to stay agile on the trail. That said, the competition is about 80 grams lighter than the Hurricane Sock.

Footbed. Only the Hurricane Sock’s default insole may be removed and replaced.
