Teva’s New GTX Hiking Boots Have A Sandal-Inspired Heel Lock System

Though Teva is best-known for its outdoors-focused sandals, the California-based footwear brand boasts a full line of flip-flops, shoes, and boots that it’s been steadily growing in recent years. And just like with its original ware introduced in the mid 1980s, Teva’s latest release, the Grandview GTX, are purpose-engineered pieces of footwear designed for the outdoors.

The Grandview GTX uses a VIBRAM Mega Grip outsole topped off with a rugged waterproof leather upper mated to a GORE-TEX Leaf bootie — the former of which is sustainably sourced and Working Group-certified while the latter is made from 71% post-consumer recycled material. Inside, there’s a wide toe-box that reduces pressure on the toes, along with a PU footbed, a TPU shank, an EVA-foam midsole, and soft micro waffle-knit lining that all come together to make for an extremely comfortable hiking boot. The back of the heel and outside ankle is adorned in a three-way strap and triangular buckle arrangement that constitutes Teva’s advanced new adjustable Universal Heel-Lock System which is made from 100% recycled polyester straps. Designed for all-day use, these boots tip the scales at just 34oz. Available in three color ways, the Teva Grandview GTX Boots are available now, with pricing set at $175.
