Good to know
-Dubbed by Oboz as the most versatile sandal in their Freeflow Collection, the Sun Kosi is designed to make backcountry excursions as pleasurable as possible, whether on or off the trail. It is also engineered in such a way that allows hiking enthusiasts to take on daring hikes in safety.
-The Sun Kosi comes with the R-Mat sole unit for underfoot protection and security. Oboz designers made both of its rear and front ends moderately rockered to give wearers sufficient walking comfort on level terrain.
The Oboz Sun Kosi is an open-toed hiking sandal for both male and female adventurers. Wearers can get a personalized fit in it by means of the sandal’s highly adjustable straps.
This sandal-type hiker from Oboz brings surefootedness to the table with its lightweight Canyonlands outsole. It is made of blended rubber, which, according to the brand, is characterized by lasting durability. The low-profile protrusions (a.k.a. lugs) strategically engineered across its surface produce sufficient grip in almost every direction. To give the sandal enhanced flexibility (especially around the arch), Oboz shoemakers gave it a segmented construction.
The Oboz Sun Kosi hiking sandal is equipped with a company-exclusive R-Mat midsole for trail-specific stability and comfort. Its primary ingredient is EVA or ethylene-vinyl acetate—a crack-resistant material known mostly for having high resilience and flexibility. It is built with a high rebound rate and adequate shock absorption to make transitions as safe and efficient as possible.
A non-removable insole called R-Mat Molded Footbed completes Sun Kosi’s midsole equation. Aside from additional comfort underfoot, this cushy component also provides zonal support, especially around the arch section.
This Oboz hiking sandal reins in the foot with its strappy upper made of heavy-duty webbing. It consists of networked straps set through hard-wearing slotted pads for adjustability. The strap at the ankle comes with a ladder-lock buckle made of hard plastic.
- The Sun Kosi is part of Oboz’s One More Tree drive. This means that for every pair of this hiker sold, Oboz will plant a tree. Fun fact: Since 2007, the company has planted over two million trees.
- Sandal lovers who also happen to be Oboz patrons might want to try out the Campster. This particular hiking sandal has more instep and forefoot coverage than the Sun Kosi. It also has a closed-toe construction, unlike the featured sandal, giving the foot shoe-like protection at the toe. Note that the strap at its heel can be set to the front to make the sandal a slip-on if desired.
