Who should buy the Teva Hurricane Drift
Wading through creeks and ankle-deep streams should be a cakewalk in the Hurricane Drift. While it resembles many of Teva’s high-quality sandals looks-wise, this piece has a few unique aces all its own. This sandal is for you if you like these defining qualities:
Seamless. With its injection-molded construction, you get a sandal that feels wholly solid. And since its straps are part of the sole, no debris will ever get stuck around its base.
Sink-proof. As it is made almost entirely of EVA foam, it will float on water if it gets detached from your feet by some unfortunate circumstance.
Slick-surface traction. Its rubberized underside has a familiar lug pattern, closely mirroring the outsole design of the Teva XLT2. That said, its grip performance is engineered specifically for wet and extra-smooth surfaces (think slate rock and medium-sized river pebbles).
Who should not buy it
Look past the Hurricane Drift and into the Teva Original Universal if a configurable forefoot strap means a lot to you. Also, instead of the featured hiker, consider the Hurricane Verge if you need something with far more support underfoot.
A trove of comfort
From "I really love this sandal" to "I bought another pair," this is how hikers in droves adore the Teva Hurricane Drift comfort-wise.
The Hurricane Drift's cat-like adhesion
An expert and several trail-goers agree that this sandal has remarkable surface traction, especially on slippery rocks.
An exemplar of weightlessness
By being no more than 400 g a pair, the Hurricane Drift is among the lightest hiking sandals on the market.
Women with narrow feet beware
The sandal could be more tight-fitting overall, say dozens of those who have tested it.
Steady hikes in the Teva Hurricane Drift
Underwhelming toe security
For a few adventurers, the Hurricane Drift not having an adjustable toe strap is rather unsatisfying.
