Excellent surface grip

The Arrowood Riva Waterproof promises enough surface grip on the trail with its rubberized outsole from Vibram. As it has multi-faceted lugs and aggressive treads, this tire-like layer gets to provide users with an extra bite over loose soil. Its forefoot zone has ridges that give wearers enhanced security during uphill traversals.

Stable and comfortable cushioning

This day hiking footgear comes engineered with an EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsole called Float-Lite to give trail mainstays a stable and adequately cushioned ride in their outings.

Excellent arch support

Teva designers slipped a nylon shank in its midfoot zone for added arch support. They also topped it with a polyurethane footbed with a springy heel pad for improved underfoot comfort.

Waterproof yet breathable upper

The Riva Waterproof from Teva’s Arrowood lineup houses the foot in its below-the-ankle upper made of full-grain leather. It is sufficiently capable of keeping the foot cool and dry with its breathable waterproof liner, called eVent.
