Who should buy the Teva Gateway Mid
The Teva Gateway Mid is a lightweight, eco-friendly and breathable hiking shoe best recommended for:
- backcountry adventures and urban jungle outings during the summer days
- day hiking, light backpacking, urban hiking excursions on well-maintained trails.
Lightweight and protective
The Gateway Mid’s straightforward construction and clean (almost futureproof?) design just might be enough to make you a new believer.
It is lighter than several of Teva’s finest hiking sandals. And since it is a boot, you will also get decent protection against mildly abrasive hazards in it.
Gateway Mid delivers solid navigational control
Embedded in its plush midsole is a supportive shank. With it, your every step has a spring to it, making rugged terrain traversals safer and more efficient.
The generous helping of grippy ridges on its outsole (front and back) allows for better navigational control during ascents and descents.
Since it comes with light padding on the inside, you might need to wear extra-thick socks to give your feet extra cushioning.
While it has some protective overlays, they might not be enough for more serious scrapes and bumps.
A patch of thin leather reinforces its back. This provides wearers extra heel support while keeping the shoe’s weight at a minimum.
You will be gliding across level/flat ground in this, thanks to its rockered heel and forefoot. With soft, open-cell polyurethane integrated with the platform, this boot delivers a springy feel in every step.
Restrictive toe box: not for wide feet
Several testers from both gender camps are convinced that the Gateway Mid is too narrow.
It could use a bit more stiffness underfoot. According to an owner, the shoe’s upper around the instep wrinkles up instead of lying flat when pulling on the lace for a tighter fit.
Ecofriendly and comfortable
With 65% recycled polyester mesh utilized in the shoe that is breathable, it keeps the feet cool and comfortable. This boot is quite capable of keeping stuffiness at bay.
Numerous hikers are impressed with the Teva Gateway Mid, calling it “very comfortable.”
