Who should buy the Teva Omnium 2

The Omnium 2 is a compelling Teva product to own thanks to its stellar cast of hike-worthy traits. It is a solid option if you:

  • Require a shoe that has a blend of protection and support in their adventures.
  • Prefer adequate defenses against odor-causing elements.
  • Prefer a shoe that has elastic gore on each side of the tongue’s flap for ease of access.

Adequate grip over challenging terrain

When it comes to footing security on slippery surfaces, the Teva Omnium 2 relies on its non-marking Spider Original outsole. It is made of a kind of rubber that enables it to produce adequate grip over challenging terrain, whether wet or dry. Teva designers engineered it with hardwearing multi-faceted protrusions (commonly known as lugs) to give frequenters of the trail enhanced slip and skid resistance.

Teva Omnium 2 Outsole

Sufficient stability over uneven terrain

The Omnium 2’s heavy-duty midsole is the layer that delivers protection from underfoot hazards and gives owners sufficient stability over uneven terrain. It is made using ethylene-vinyl acetate—a foam-like material known for its durability and capability to withstand considerable weight and stress.

Prevents slippage

Its non-removable in-built footbed, which is mildly textured to prevent slippage, grants hikers extra comfort underfoot.

Embedded within the midsole’s confines is a nylon shank. This additional component gives enhanced stability over rugged terrain. It also bolsters the gear’s medial support.

Extra forefoot protection

Wearing this Teva gear means being strapped in its part synthetic, part mesh upper. It is engineered with soft padding on the inside for increased in-sandal comfort. Its closed-toe design is shoe-like, giving trail enthusiasts extra forefoot protection. The gaps between the footwear’s collar and tongue are bridged with a stretchy material (gore), making on and off a bit more convenient.

Secure fit

The closure system of the Omnium 2 blurs the line between sandals and shoes. This is especially true with the footgear’s lace-like quick-pull cord with a locking slider at the instep. The straps securing the cuff area both have Velcro-like fasteners. That said, only the front strap has a locking buckle made of a material akin to hard plastic.
