Updates to Teva Sirra
- The Teva Sirra is a hiking sandal built sleek yet sturdy to give outdoorsy women a combination of protection and mobility on the trail. Its water-friendly build means it can provide a balanced performance in both wet and dry conditions.
- Its slender sole unit is rockered at the heel and forefoot, improving push offs for a more natural stride. This unified sole is a tandem between the gear’s durable midsole and Teva-exclusive outsole.
Teva Sirra size and fit
A relatively true-to-size water hiking sandal for women is the Teva Sirra. It is offered in standard width and whole sizes. A personalized fit may be achieved with the use of the footgear’s adjustable ankle strap with ladder lock buckle.
The Teva Sirra promises sufficient surface grip on a variety of terrain with its proprietary Spider Rubber outsole. It is built with high-friction treads and lugs to give wearers adequate slip resistance on soft-soiled surfaces. The science behind this non-marking component allows it to produce and maintain traction no matter if the terrain is wet or dry.
This slender sandal of a hiker has a lightweight midsole made of EVA for ground stability and cushioning underfoot. A stiffener called shank is placed within its medial section to give users enhanced support around the arch. It comes with a built-in (non-removable) footbed which grants not only extra comfort but also additional support.
What completes the Teva Sirra’s chicness is its minimalist upper made of water-ready polyester webbing. Both its pair of strap joints and ladder lock buckle are made of a material similar to hard plastic. The strap securing the heel is padded for extra comfort. The same strap also comes with a pull tab to expedite on and off.
