When it comes to hiking shoes, there is no such thing as one size fits all. Most serious hikers have several types of hiking shoes for different hiking conditions, including trail sandals for summer hiking. Trail sandals can be the ideal choice for summer hiking when the terrain isn’t too challenging. Although trail sandals lack the support of serious hiking books, technical trail sandals can stand up to a moderately challenging day of trail hiking. Alternatively, you can pack your trail sandals in your backpacking equipment and pull them out to cross streams, or to wear around the campsite after a long day in hiking boots.
Select trail sandals with wide, adjustable straps, molded foot beds and good support. Trail sandals such as the Keen Men’s Newport H2 Sandal feature razor sipping for excellent traction, Aegis Microbe Shield for comfort and stability, and Keep Protect for toe protection. for comfort on trails or city sidewalks. For women, the Keen Women’s Newport H2 Sandals offer trail-friendly features including an ergonomic design and toe protection.
