Size and fit

A low-cut, fairly true-to-size day hiking shoe for men is the Teva Arrowood Riva Waterproof. It comes in standard width in a range of half and full sizes. Its ghillie lacing allows for a customized and secure lockdown.


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 extra bite over loose soil. Its forefoot zone has ridges that give wearers enhanced security during uphill traversals.


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. 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.


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. It is built with a rubber toe cap for protection against frontal assaults. At its heel is a sturdy reinforcement that enhances the shoe’s rearfoot support. There is also a pull loop stitched to the heel of the waterproof hiker, allowing owners to get in and out of the gear with relative ease.

Its ghillie lacing uses a stout lace made of synthetic material. It features closed loops in place of regular eyelets. The top-most pair of lace loops are metallic.
