TEVA Terra-Float

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Read & React -

TEVA, THE WORLD’S most fa­mous out­door/ ad­ven­ture san­dal brand, has re­leased a new se­ries of footwear (san­dals and boots), dubbed Terra-Float. AG Out­door was lucky enough to re­ceive a sam­ple of the all-new wa­ter/out­door Float san­dal be­fore the Christ­mas break and has sub­jected it to test­ing over the past months.

The Float san­dal uses Teva’s all-new out­sole tech­nol­ogy, dubbed Float-Lite, which re­places the com­pany’s Spi­der Grip tech. Float-Lite al­lows for a lighter over­all san­dal that of­fers fan­tas­tic sup­port un­der­foot. Th­ese Float san­dals have be­come a favourite of this tester; the sole of the san­dal of­fers ex­cel­lent foot sup­port, coutesy of the EVA footbed which sup­plies the right amount of cush­ion­ing. The ad­justable web­bing is nice and wide so it does not “cut into” your foot dur­ing use, and the tri-ring eyelets are tough. Fit­ting the san­dal is easy, of course, but what I was most im­pressed by was the ex­cel­lent heel sup­port once the san­dal is se­cured. This sup­port, along with the im­pres­sive trac­tion lev­els that the new Float-Lite out­sole pro­vides saw the Floats used for every­thing from rock hop­ping on the beach, through to day walks.

For a ver­sa­tile, wa­ter­proof and ro­bust san­dal, th­ese Floats make a big state­ment. – Justin Walker
