The Perfect Walking Sandals

Take a look as we show you some of our best walking sandals from the Taunton Leisure range and highlight what makes each so special.

When it comes to heeavy hikes on hot days, you simply cannot beat the comfort of a decent walking sandal. Keeping your feet cool and free to touch the fresh air is the most effective method of preventing overheating and sweaty, blistered feet. Depending who you are, you will have different needs for your perfect walking sandal. Within the Taunton Leisure range we have chosen a wide variety of sandals in order to provide you several different approaches to what a a sandal can be. Would you like to optimise protection? Perhaps you’re looking to get as close to feeling barefoot as possible? Do you require the use of your own orthotic to provide the support you need?
We have a sandal for you! Today let’s take a look at several different options and talk about exactly what the shoe can offer.

The Meindl Lipari will take an Orthotic insert

The Meindl Lipari is a multi trail sandal designed to be worn with your own orthotic footbed. This is an essential need in many as some simply cannot walk far without one. Many sandals cannot provide this need as they lack a decent space to prevent the Orthotic from slipping or simply lack the room to fit both an orthotic and your foot. For those who have struggled to find a solution, this is your holy grail and we thoroughly recommend you try a pair in one of our stores and see for yourself.
These sandals are wide fitting, closed toe and are not only anatomically shaped but feature a pronounced upward bent sole to allow for a natural heel-to-toe movement.
Comes with Meindl Comfort Fit footbeds, or swap these out with your own orthotic footbed.

The Teva Terra FI Lite is almost a barefoot experience but can take on serious trails

The TevaTerra Fi Lite is designed for performance comfort. Finished with earth-friendly Unifi® recycled polyester straps that stand up to abuse while keeping plastic waste out of landfills.

The water-ready polyester webbing upper is extremely durable and dries quickly after getting wet and the easy hook-and-loop closure comes on and off quickly and gets the fit just right. A Spider Original rubber outsole is extremely durable and supplies great traction and a nylon shank stabilises and supports your foot on uneven terrain. A cushioned Shoc Pad in the heel absorbs impact where you need it most. Treated with Microban, a zinc-based antimicrobial technology that helps prevent stink. Wonderfully lightweight, these sandals bring you wonderfully close to the earth whilst protecting your feet from rough terrain.
