Teva Hurricane XLT 2 Review
It took years for me to want to strap this style of sandal to my feet, I usually go for the between the toe, flop flop style sandals. However, I have never really thought of a sandal as something I could recreate in. The flip flop style was in my opinion, just meant to keep my feet cool while growing up in the Arizona desert. When I moved to Colorado, of course I gained a ton of new hobbies for each and every season I was newly presented with. A few years back we bought some stand up paddleboards, sold our house and lived on the road, weaving backcountry campsites and state parks all around the state. A great deal of state parks in Colorado have a lake within them which left us a ton of time in the day to work and play on the beach. Enter the strap on-offroad-rugged-recreation sandal. I picked up these Hurricanes in particular due to their strong supportive sole and it was the right decision. They give just enough arch support without being a “supportive” style sandal. I have very little complaints about these as they work in so many different applications.
I do have a friend that hiked a 14er in hers… I wouldn’t suggest taking it that far with these things!
