Things you will love about the Breakwater Strap

  • You can adjust it easily. This hiking sandal has an open-toe construction which means your toes have plenty of space to move and wiggle. The hook-and-loop closure makes it easy to slide your foot into the footwear and the Velcro strap means you can just pull and re-attach it to loosen or tighten the fit. And if you hate toe straps, this hiking sandal is what you're looking for.
  • The contoured footbed spells "comfort". This hiking sandal features a contoured footbed to give you stability and comfort. Additionally, there are tiny patterns throughout the area so your foot doesn't slide forward or backward when you submerge in the water.
  • It has a Vibram outsole. If you're a fan of Vibram hiking shoes, you will love this sandal. The Breakwater Strap uses the Megagrip rubber sole from Vibram which is said to grip nicely on both dry and wet surfaces.
