Updates to Teva Sanborn Sandal

  • Made with the same quality materials used in the Sanborn Universal, the Sanborn Sandal features an entirely different design that's more chic and appealing for women. It uses 100% recycled plastic for the upper, a lightweight EVA midsole for cushioning and support, and a durable rubber outsole for grip and traction.
  • This vegan footwear makes use of the Unifi recycled polyester that stands to abuse while keeping plastic waste out of landfills.

Size and fit

The Teva Sanborn is an open-toed sandal with overlapping straps covering the midfoot. The hook-and-loop closure makes it easy to slip in your foot or take it off from the sandal. There's also a pull loop at the back of the ankle strap for convenience of wearing.

Outsole

Equipped with a durable rubber outsole, this sandal can be worn in wet and dry conditions. It has a shallow lug profile that works well on hard surfaces, including concrete roads, hard-packed dirt, and rocks. The lugs are triangular in shape, facing different directions for enhanced grip and traction. Since the lug depth is pretty shallow, it may not be ideal for traversing trails with deep mud and loose dirt.

Midsole

Like most Teva sandals, the Sanborn has a midsole made of EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate). It's a special type of foam consisting of thousands of tiny bubbles joined together to hold air. EVA midsoles offer cushioning and shock absorption. What's more - they are very lightweight which makes them ideal for hiking sandals where weight is a factor. 

The EVA footbed is contoured so it provides supportive cushioning. 

Upper

The Teva Sanborn has an upper made from recycled plastic called REPREVE. It's a polyester yarn manufactured by Unifi. This material is created using plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills. The straps have some stretch to it to fit the foot snugly.

Completing the upper is a hook-and-loop closure that uses a Velcro strap for easy adjustment of the fit. This vegan footwear also contains synthetic and plant-based materials.
