Sandals can be divisive. Not, perhaps, quite as divisive as Brexit but still very much an item of footwear capable of splitting a crowd into two distinctly opposing binary camps. To paraphrase the old Marmite advertising slogan, when it comes to sandals “You either love them, or you hate them.”
But hold on one second. Maybe there’s a sandal out there that can bridge the divide, and reunite the people behind it. Maybe, just maybe, that sandal is the Evofit from Keen. It might sound like we’re overhyping a humble sandal, but when you begin to discover what this thing’s got in the locker you soon learn to appreciate that this isn’t your standard “Grandpa’s wearing socks and sandals down at the beach again” fare.
This product has been engineered with versatility at its heart, and there’s a general sense of adaptability here that, when taken outdoors, can only serve to elevate your experience of it. The clever Evofit mesh fabric, for example, essentially acts as a second skin, one that innovatively moves and breathes with your foot. As a result of this, you might find that once these comfortable sandals are on your feet – you’ll actually be reluctant to revert back to shoes or boots.
There’s an Aquagrip rubber blend outsole here that’s been designed to maximise traction in and out of water. What this effectively means is that whether you’re trekking over slippery rocks on the river or marching down muddy jungle trails, you’re not going to end up on your backside.
There’s also a flexible midsole, with TPU inserts, that provides enduring comfort underfoot, and a progression of Keen’s classic bungee closure system – a system that delivers a dependable level of security around the ankle.
Equipped to successfully take on a wide variety of outdoor activities, we think Keen’s Evofit One sits head and shoulders above rival products on the market. If sandals are your thing, you’ll love these.
