Considering the extent of walking you may have to do, it is quite natural to have a sandal which does justice to your requirement.
-These cute, stylish KEEN sandals feature adjustable straps for a comfortable fit, compression-molded EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning, and a non-marking rubber outsole that delivers traction on wet and dry surfaces.
-These sandals have polyester uppers with hydrophobic mesh lining so you can confidently hop in and out of the water without getting your feet soaked. Additionally, these sandals are machine-washable for convenience of cleaning.
The KEEN Bali Strap sandals are specifically designed for women. They feature a closed-toe construction for extra coverage and protection around the toes. There are no straps around the midfoot for maximum breathability but there is an adjustable hook-and-loop strap over the instep for support.
This walking sandal from KEEN uses a non-marking rubber sole with siping around the edges so you don't slip as you traverse wet and slippery rocks. Soles with lateral grooves have much better breakaway traction and rolling traction, which is very important when hiking in and around water. However, the KEEN Bali Strap doesn't have deep indentations in the outsole so they don't hold up very well in mud and loose dirt.
For the midsole, this sandal uses EVA - a very lightweight foam that delivers nice cushioning and responsiveness. It's attached to the upper using KEEN's metatomical technology in which the insole and last are built around the overall shape of the foot to provide better support.
The footbed is thick enough so your feet don't feel uncomfortable as you step on hard and sharp objects like rocks, pebbles, sticks, and large debris. Furthermore, they are treated with probiotic technology that naturally breaks down the odor in sweat without leaving a trace in the environment.
The KEEN Bali Strap feature a chic and stylish design and is available in different colorways. They have uppers made of polyester webbing that's breathable and quick-drying. Lining its interior is a hydrophobic mesh fabric for added comfort and protection. This versatile sandal is best used in the summer when you're navigating well-managed trails and getting into some water adventures.
-The KEEN Bali Strap sandals are machine-washable. Use a small amount of detergent and wash on a "gentle" cycle and then air dry.
