Could use a bit more softness underfoot
"Plasticky underfoot"—this is how one owner describes the Karrimor Antibes' non-removable footbed. Another tester arrived at the same conclusion, but instead of saying something creative about it, they resorted to just warning readers that the featured kick is not recommended for long walks.
Karrimor Antibes equals debris magnet
It has been reported that the insole of the Antibes tends to trap in sand and other grainy stuff in the grooves of its brick-like design.
A footbed that doesn't get squidgy
The Karrimor Antibes has a watertight sole unit, making it completely non-absorbent. This characteristic is thanks to the construction of its straps, which aren't driven into the footbed but instead sandwiched between the insole and outsole.
Straps that rock
The straps of the Karrimor Antibes are very easy to work with and adjust, according to many adventurers. The "straps make them heaven to fit," says one of them. There's also someone with a bunion on their right toe that deeply appreciates the forefoot strap's high adjustability.
Antibes: A looker with a remarkable finish
Female reviewers love the overall design of the finely crafted Karrimor Antibes. One of them describes it as having "fashionable looks," while another one simply calls the sandal "fab."
Part of the budget-friendly club
Another eye-popping thing about the Karrimor Antibes is its list price of $75 (a price it shares with the Teva Mid Universal). It undercuts the average price of hiking sandals by $17.
