Teva Hudson who should buy

Who should NOT buy the sandal

If you are concerned about the quality and longevity of such an affordable sandal, you might want to invest in a bit more expensive and sturdy pair like Teva Universal Trail or Teva Zymic.

Teva's proprietary rubber outsole

Teva’s own rubber outsole called the Durabrasion is responsible for traction in the Teva Hudson on both rugged trails and city pavements. Its ability to bite into virtually all sorts of surfaces is found mostly in its aggressive tread patterns and low-profile lugs. The reviewers report feeling surefooted when walking through creeks, mud, and rocks.

Teva Hudson is mighty durable

Long-time fans of this model have bought the Hudson multiple times over the years claiming that it literally lasts for years. Up to 10 years for some.

Supportive contoured midsole

The Hudson’s midsole is ergonomically shaped to fit the wearer's foot contour. A lot of people appreciate the arch support provided as a result. Those with plantar fasciitis are especially pleased with the sandal's ability to relieve stress.

Shock-absorbing support

The sandal is touted as very efficient in protecting the foot from impact and sharp objects. It also remains supportive for extended periods of wear. "Good enough to walk many miles a day in," says one of the wearers. Those who have walked over 10 km a day in the Hudson also subscribe to the scandal's lasting comfort.

Within the bounds of this shock-absorbing layer is a nylon shank. This particular implement contributes to the sandal’s overall stability.

Anti-slip and anti-odor footbed

For additional comfort underfoot, Teva engineers gave the Hudson a non-removable EVA footbed. Its entire surface is textured to prevent underfoot slippage. It is also treated with Microban—a technology that fights off odor caused by sweat and moisture.

Durable suede straps of the Teva Hudson

This Teva sandal has that classic overall look thanks to its suede leather upper with textile lining.

The three adjustable straps are engineered with hook and loop fasteners. They are linked together with sturdy joints which are rounded and smoothed for quick adjustments.
