Who should buy the Teva Langdon Sandal
The men’s Langdon Sandal from Teva is marketed as a foot-forming, outdoor classic. It is a solid option if you need a sandal that comes with the following attributes:
- leather straps lined with breathable mesh that hugs the foot
- an easy-to-adjust closure system for fit management and easy on and off
- a molded EVA midsole that provides a cushy ride while support comes from the nylon shank
Who should NOT buy the sandal
If you need sandals with a longer top strap to create more space around your instep, consider Teva Hurricane XLT2 or Teva Hurricane 4. Both sandals are also more lightweight than the Teva Langdon.
The rubber outsole of the Teva men’s Langdon Sandal allows it to tackle different ground conditions, including dirt, creeks, and rocks. Its triangular lugs render multidirectional traction. The space in between the lugs channels waters out for slip resistance.
The wearers are delighted with the sandal's soft and cushiony underfoot comfort. They are also pleased that it comes with a little bit of arch support - just enough to keep you going longer.
The wearers who have taken this sandal on their trips to South America, Caribbean islands, and Asia were impressed with how the upper remained comfortable in the heat, humidity, and rain.
The Teva Langdon Sandal employs a molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) footbed. This material offers lightweight cushioning and arch support. The brand engineers also added a nylon shank to provide stability and promote support on bumpy terrain.
Based on the wearers' feedback, the sandal has a well-judged strap system. This makes it feel nice and form-fitting straight from the box. No breaking-in is necessary. "Padded heel strap makes a big difference," says one of the reviewers.
The only downfall of the upper is the top instep strap. It appeared to be too short for people with high arches, neuropathy, and other conditions which require a more forgiving fit.
A soft mesh lining is added underneath the straps to amplify its comfortable feel. Additionally, it has three adjustable hook-and-loop straps which allow you to really fine-tune the fit.
Teva Langdon Sandal can take a beating
Those who have taken this sandal on some demanding trips and hikes report that the Langdon holds up perfectly. As one wearer puts it: "I can get a good long life out of these." For some people, this silhouette lasted for years.
This Teva hiking sandal uses durable leather for its upper and a heavy duty rubber for its outsole.
