Excellent traction on all-weather condition

Powered by its Spider Rubber outsole, the Teva Tirra promises to deliver traction on tricky terrain no matter the weather condition.

Excellent multi-directional grip

The sole’s water-shedding tread patterns prevent traction loss on wet surfaces, while its multi-directional lugs provide grip from nearly every direction. This rubber layer will also not stain urban surfaces as it is non-marking to boot.

Excellent arch support

Wearers are granted stability on uneven and undeveloped trails thanks primarily to the sandal’s cushy midsole. It has ample end-to-end thickness to ensure proper shock absorption and distribution. It also provides adequate arch support with its raised arch zone.

Excellent stability

Within the confines of this comfy platform is a nylon shank. What this added component does is reinforce the midfoot zone to improve the user’s balance. It also contributes to the sandal’s overall stability, especially during transitions.

Soft footbed

Teva designers crafted the sandal’s non-removable footbed with the female foot in mind which means that this insole is designed to be extra soft and have more prominent contours.

Shock-absorbing cushioning

There is a cushy component placed in the heel cup of the footbed called the Shoc Pad. This springy patch, which is made using a combination of polyurethane and EVA, contributes to the sandal’s shock absorption by evenly transferring the energy of impact throughout the midsole.

Odor-resistant

During the construction of this hiking sandal from Teva, the engineers also infused the insole and midsole with Microban’s zinc-based antimicrobial technology. By actively inhibiting odor-causing bacteria on a micro level, it is able to fight off the stink. It also prevents mold buildup, thus improving the lifespan of the sandal.

Lightweight

The women’s-only Teva Tirra is lightweight and fast-drying thanks to its strappy, webbing upper which is mostly made of polyester. It is a hydrophobic, synthetic material characterized by lightness, strength, and resilience.

Wider lockdown configuration options

The sandal’s set of straps uses hook and loop fasteners to give wearers wider lockdown configuration options. There is also a pull tab stitched on the heel’s back strap for effortless on and off.
