We all love Tevas! There is a reason when we are thinking of buying a quality sandal, the popular brand is one of the first on our list. They are durable, stylish and most importantly, super comfortable!
I personally have been a fan ever since my Mom & Dad gifted me a pair as a kid, (MANY years ago), and have loved wearing them ever since. And the styles and option have only gotten better over the years. They are the perfect shoe for any outdoor activity, walking on the beach, kayaking, camping and in this case, hiking. However, which ones are the best Tevas for hiking?
Well, in this post, we are going to answer that question. In fact, we are going to look at 3 of my favorite pairs for both men and women. Let’s get started.
What Are The Best Tevas For Hiking?
Here is a quick preview of the sandals we are going to look at in this post.
- Teva Women’s W Hurricane Xlt2 Sport
- Teva Women’s Tirra Athletic
- Teva Women’s Omnium
- Teva Men’s M Terra Fi 4

- Teva Men’s M Arrowood Waterproof Hiking Shoe
Let’s take a closer look at each one….
Teva Women’s W Hurricane Xlt2 Sport
- Synthetic sole
- Cushioned heel tab
- Rubber outsole
- Classic Style
Traction is very important when doing some adventurous hiking, as you may not know where you will end up. To bring those concerns to a halt, check out these Hurricane Xlt2 sport sandals from Teva. They are an excellent option for any hiker, as they feature a synthetic, durabrasion rubber outsole, keeping you upright all day long on those windy, uneven trails.
These also have a nylon shank that was designed to improve stability, and polyester straps which not only fit comfortably around your feet, but are quick drying, so you can stay cozy even after treking through those unknown puddles.
Available in several colors, ranging from black to coral, be sure to grab a pair of these hurricanes if you want happy feet on those rugged trails.

Teva Women’s Tirra Athletic
- Water-channeling lugs
- Spider rubber outsole
- EVA midsole
These Tirra athletic sandals are a must-have for any on-the-go athlete. They look a bit different from the traditional Teva sandal, boasting an extra strap or two, but still carry that same great quality you expect from any pair of Tevas.
The Spider rubber out sole is made with great traction in mind, and the unique webbing is ready and willing to jump into the water. The midsole is designed for a comfortable fit, and the shock pad heel only contributes to that comfort. But comfort and stability is not the only thing these sandals have.
They also are easy to slip on and off, with the adjustable velcro straps and convenient pull-on tab. AND to top it all off, there is a multitude of options when it comes to color and design, so much so, you may have a hard time deciding on just one.
Teva Women’s Omnium
- Quick-dry lining
- Spider outsole
- Adjustable for the perfect fit
If you’re looking for a bit more coverage, especially in the toe area, than check out these Omnium sandals for everyday protection. They are made from mesh and synthetic materials and are super lightweight when compared to your everyday shoe.
Though they look more like a shoe than a sandal, they don’t feel like it. The cut-outs not only serve a drainage points for those moments on the water, but they also keep these closed-toe sandals breezy and breathable.
Made with spider rubber for an excellent grip on those slippery surfaces and quick-dry materials for content feet on your adventure, these omnium sandals really hit the nail on the head when it comes to an overall great hiking sandal.
Teva Men’s M Terra Fi 4
- Rubber outsole
- Nylon shank for great control
- Anti-microbial technology
You men out there, will love these Terra FI 4 Sandals from the company. They include many of the nice features that Teva is known for- adjustable hook and loop straps for easy on and off, back heel shock pad to absorb shock on those long hikes, nylon shank for stability and a cool fabric design for style.
However, what makes these Terra FI 4 sandals a bit more unique than the rest is they feature Microban-a special treatment which helps counteract the smell many of us get on our feet, especially after a long day of hiking.
This will not only keep you feel feeling fresh, but smelling fresh too. A win-win in my book, wouldn’t you agree?
Teva Men’s M Forebay 2
- Rugged look and feel
- Microban treated
Another great option for hiking are these closed-toe Forebay 2 sandals. They are super comfortable, with all the added features built-in to the sole, extremely durable, and they feature a man-made upper.
They also have breathable inlets on each side of the shoe and an adjustable closure for a great fit. Microban coated and a tough rubber sole, these Forebay 2’s are ready to go anywhere your feet desire. They come in 2 cool colors, turkish coffee and walnut, look great with a pair or pants or shorts and will easily protect your feet from any harmful stumps or rocks you encounter on the road.
Teva Men’s M Arrowood Waterproof Hiking Shoe
- Float-lite technology
Maybe you are looking for the best Tevas for hiking, but sandals themselves aren’t necessarily a requirement. If that is the case, check out these Arrowood hiking shoes. They are first of all waterproof, a great bonus to take on a hike, as you don’t always know what you will encounter.
These Arrowoods also have a removable liner, and sole to adjust to your perfect fit and come in a nice leather upper. Featuring a rubber bottom, these hiking shoes also incorporate Teva’s own Float-lite technology, which in turn gives you a cozy, comfortable feel in a super lightweight and rugged body.
Available in 4 colors, these Arrowood shoes are a great choice for any hiking enthusiast.
