Hi I’m currently in welcome to the last kind of in the woods today I’m here to review that Teva Sirra sandal now I thought these were three months ago and I’m gonna tell you right off the bat that I love them so I bought these to replace my Teva Tirra tears which I was just going to replace with another pair of tears and tell I saw that you are not only doing these look better they don’t have the crew which is the part of my tears orang the most sense that they have these latter straps and they are one hundred and thirty-six grams lighter per shoe.
So I designed some very special tester UT sandals with the first I’ll give you a few stats so these ways three intern forty-six grams per shoe which is a hundred thirty-six grams less than the tears awesome the straps are a polyester webbing and there’s not that much padding on the heels and I was worried about that at first but it’s actually been okay just this little plastic bit dug into my toe on the first day but since then it’s turned sideways and hasn’t been a problem and that is the biggest complaint
I’ve seen in online reviews is that little plastic bag so they are just for the latter lock closure and all you have to do is pull back on this little thing and it actually it’s just the tension of the whole sample something that I rather like when I first got them they were a little bit tighter and they were a little hard to get on but now they’ve stretched out a bit and it’s quite easy when I type in the month.
They do tend to slip a little over time but they they still seem pretty secure on my feet so they have an EVA foam its own footbed which is pushed to be like supportive and comfortable like us and and and it is and they have a spider rubber outsole which is the same as the tears and we’ll get to that in the testing they’re also treated with micro ban on the on the footbed so they don’t stink and so far that’s worked okay.
Let’s start with a specially designed tests first up we have the can I wear this to work test so like I said I was attracted to these because I thought they look nice which doesn’t usually play into my gear shopping but since I was working outside a lot but also as a teacher something that was professional that but kind of rugged really works so I can wear these with this good and I shirt to work and I can still run around and play in the dirt.
Next test a very important one is the hike test.
So I took these up on the lady slipper trail which is a fairly well-maintained trail but it does have a bit of rugged terrain is five kilometres long and with a bit of four hundred eighty meters elevation gain.
And they were fine I started to feel a little bit of rubbing by the plastic bit and also on the back of my heel but it wasn’t the.
It was just a slight rubbing I probably wouldn’t want to take these sandals on any bigger of a hike than that because their sandals not hiking boots but I was pretty happy with the way they held up they state support of going uphill and downhill.
Okay, the creek walk test this is another important one for me because of doing this stream crossing with packs of because I liked creek walk or because trying to push the canoe somewhere a forever down a river.
Okay, the climbing while wet on this is important because if you’re climbing in and out of a river or lake on the rocks you want to know that you’re not going to fall and hurt yourself.
So these did considerably better than I was expecting these are some fairly smooth rocks that I’m scrambling around on.
And the next is the dry test which is an important one because what sandals can give you blisters or if it’s evening they can keep you called the straps took over an hour to dry in the padding took even longer which surprised me because it seems faster when I’m not timing it but it was also a chilly evening and my I wasn’t moving around a lot so I wasn’t producing any body heat to help dry them off they definitely do dry faster than the T. abyss though because they have so much less padding.
And as a bonus the obscured under cover slant the LG covered rock tax.
No no no curly find a slant pure rock there you go.
Okay, so my conclusion is that these are excellent sandals I like them a lot there is a link below where you can purchase.
