Many things end up being worse in the water sports world if they have a two in them, be it the tandem whitewater canoe or a two-mile portage. Teva has gone against this grain with the Sunkosi 2, the redesigned descendant of the original Sunkosi. The Wraptor fit system integrates the lacing system directly into the midsole for unprecedented fit, stability and security. These babies come with a non-marking Spider Rubber outsole that provides traction and durability on all types of river banks. Drainage ports line the bottom, and combined with its mono sock construction they keep the debris out and drain faster than a self-bailing raft. But the drainage doesn’t just stop there. A mesh and welded TPU upper provide great drying capabilities and ventilation. Another nice feature: reinforced heel construction to prevent chaffing and inevitable blisters.
So say sayonara to the neoprene booty toe stub. With the Sunkosi’s sole extending up and wrapping over the toe area, your feet no longer need look like soldiers coming home from battle. With both men’s and women’s styles these puppies come in a color and size for everyone.
