Jadito Universal: Who is it for?

This remarkable piece from Teva is for those who value versatility in hiking sandals. That said, if you dig a little deeper, you will find out that the Jadito Universal is also for:

  • Hikers who need extra protection underfoot.
  • Those who want more arch support.
  • Wearers who navigate inclines, especially downhill, quite often.
  • Trail-goers who are dead serious about buying only sustainable and recyclable products.
  • Faithful seekers of affordable hiking sandals.

Alternatives to the Teva Jadito Universal

Teva Mid Universal

Another one of Teva’s chunkier offerings, the Mid Universal is a competent water hiker. While it is not endowed as the featured sandal in the “midsole thickness” department, the Mid Universal is lighter at approximately 500 g per pair and cheaper to boot. It and the Jadito Universal are part of the TevaForever program, which recycles kicks into completely different items.

Hoka One One Tor Trafa

If you are a fan of Hoka One One and love brawny hiking sandals, check out the Tor Trafa. This offering keeps the foot centered with its cratered construction. Its closed-toe construction also provides shoe-like forefoot protection. The Tor Trafa, however, is about $40 more expensive than the Jadito Universal.
