Updates to Teva Omnium 2 Leather
- The Omnium 2 Leather by Teva allows hikers to experience the trail with a combination of security, support, and protection. It inherits the closed-toe design of its predecessor—the first Omnium Leather. Also returning in this version is the Microban anti-microbial technology which once again gives the sandal adequate stink protection.
- Just like its older brother, the Omnium 2 Leather gets to cushion the foot against pointy rocks and bulging roots with its single-piece midsole. That said, this iteration now comes with a supportive subcomponent called shank, something the first edition didn’t have.
Teva Omnium 2 Leather size and fit
Teva’s Omnium 2 Leather is a generally true-to-size multi-sport sandal for men. It comes in D – standard width in half and full sizes. The shoe’s fit may be personalized using its adjustable speed lace and hook-and-loop closure.
With the Teva Omnium 2 Leather’s Spider Original rubber outsole, lovers of the trail get to negotiate tricky terrain with sufficient traction. It provides extra clawing power and grip over loose soil thanks to its low-profile lugs.
Cushioning and stability underfoot come by means of the sandal’s lightweight midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate. Teva engineers embedded it with a nylon shank to give wearers a firmer balance and extra arch support. It comes with a built-in (non-removable) footbed for additional comfort.
The strappy upper of this closed-toe sandal is made with a combination of leather and mesh. Its key parts are engineered with elastic gore for on-and-off convenience. Its closure system is made up of adjustable, hook-and-loop straps and a stretchy cord (speed lace). The strap securing the ankle comes with a locking buckle made of hard plastic.
