Who should buy the Teva Hurricane Drift

Wading through creeks and ankle-deep streams should be a cakewalk in the Hurricane Drift. While it resembles many of Teva’s high-quality sandals looks-wise, this piece has a few unique aces all its own. This sandal is for you if you like these defining qualities:

Seamless. With its injection-molded construction, you get a sandal that feels wholly solid. And since its straps are part of the sole, no debris will ever get stuck around its base.

Sink-proof. As it is made almost entirely of EVA foam, it will float on water if it gets detached from your feet by some unfortunate circumstance.

Slick-surface traction. Its rubberized underside has a familiar lug pattern, closely mirroring the outsole design of the Teva XLT2. That said, its grip performance is engineered specifically for wet and extra-smooth surfaces (think slate rock and medium-sized river pebbles).

Who should not buy it

Look past the Hurricane Drift and into the Teva Original Universal if a configurable forefoot strap means a lot to you. Also, instead of the featured hiker, consider the Hurricane Verge if you need something with far more support underfoot.

An exemplar of weightlessness

By being no more than 400 g a pair, the Hurricane Drift is among the lightest hiking sandals on the market.

Women with narrow feet beware

The sandal could be more tight-fitting overall, say dozens of those who have tested it.

Hydrophobic looker

The eye-catching Hurricane Drift does not stay wet for long, according to numerous owners. This is thanks to the sandal's rubber-like main material, which repels water easily.

Underwhelming toe security

For a few adventurers, the Hurricane Drift not having an adjustable toe strap is rather unsatisfying.
