Lightweight and protective

The Gateway Mid’s straightforward construction and clean (almost futureproof?) design just might be enough to make you a new believer.

Teva Gateway Mid Lightweight and protective

It is lighter than several of Teva’s finest hiking sandals. And since it is a boot, you will also get decent protection against mildly abrasive hazards in it.

Gateway Mid delivers solid navigational control 

Embedded in its plush midsole is a supportive shank. With it, your every step has a spring to it, making rugged terrain traversals safer and more efficient.

The generous helping of grippy ridges on its outsole (front and back) allows for better navigational control during ascents and descents.

Insufficient cushioning

Since it comes with light padding on the inside, you might need to wear extra-thick socks to give your feet extra cushioning.

While it has some protective overlays, they might not be enough for more serious scrapes and bumps.

Provides extra heel support 

A patch of thin leather reinforces its back. This provides wearers extra heel support while keeping the shoe’s weight at a minimum.

You will be gliding across level/flat ground in this, thanks to its rockered heel and forefoot. With soft, open-cell polyurethane integrated with the platform, this boot delivers a springy feel in every step.

Restrictive toe box: not for wide feet

Several testers from both gender camps are convinced that the Gateway Mid is too narrow.

It could use a bit more stiffness underfoot. According to an owner, the shoe’s upper around the instep wrinkles up instead of lying flat when pulling on the lace for a tighter fit.

Ecofriendly and comfortable

With 65% recycled polyester mesh utilized in the shoe that is breathable, it keeps the feet cool and comfortable. This boot is quite capable of keeping stuffiness at bay.
