Updates to Teva Terra-Float 2 Universal

  • The Teva Terra-Float 2 Universal, a direct successor to the first Terra-Float Universal, is a comfortable yet sturdy sandal built for hikers who prefer going through trails with enhanced agility. Unlike its predecessor, this version has a strap connecting the sandal’s forefoot and ankle straps, giving it better structural integrity as a result.
  • Its lightweight outsole called Durabrasion is still based on the same Float-Lite compound found in the Terra-Float Universal. Its lugs this time around, however, have been revamped for improved surface traction.

Size and fit

Teva’s Terra-Float 2 Universal is a relatively true-to-size hiking sandal for men and women. It comes in standard width and sizes. Users may customize its fit using the footwear’s adjustable ankle and forefoot straps.

Outsole

Giving trail adventurers enough grip on slippery surfaces is the Terra-Float 2 Universal’s Durabrasion outsole with Float-Lite technology. Its entirety is made of rubber. Teva engineers furnished it with triangular lugs to help hikers move around loose-soiled terrain with increased footing security.

Midsole

The footgear’s single-piece midsole made of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) is what provides stability and cushioning over uneven terrain. Its built to mitigate shock thanks to its chunky yet springy construction. Addressing the need for extra comfort and support underfoot is the non-removable footbed nested right on top of it.

Upper

This quick-drying hiker from Teva houses the foot in its water-ready polyester webbing upper. It is lined with soft fabric on the inside for added comfort. The straps that serve as the closure system are engineered with hook-and-loop fasteners, making them highly adjustable. These straps are linked together via triangular buckles made of a tough plastic-like material.
