Optimize grip on wet and dry terrain

Surface traction is rendered by the Teva Minam’s non-marking Spider Original outsole. It is engineered to grant traction and withstand constant contact with various ground conditions. It contains an aggressive lug pattern to optimize grip on wet and dry terrain.

Excellent arch support

The gear’s EVA footbed cradles the arch for support. It’s also treated with Microban, a zinc-based technology that prevents odor from building up by hindering bacterial growth.

Excellent impact transfer

Its insole incorporates Shoc Pad, a unit made of blended polyurethane and EVA located in the heel cup. It functions by transferring impact away from the heel and spreading it throughout the footbed as the forefoot pushes off.

Secure fit

The Teva Minam features an easy hook-and-loop closure system to facilitate fit management. It has three velcro straps positioned around the back heel, the hindfoot, and vamp areas to secure the user’s foot. These same straps are waterproof to prevent them from getting soaked during a hike. Additionally, a pull tab is found on the heel for an easier on and off.
