TREAD Men's Sandals

TREAD is like four-wheel drive for your feet. The aggressive, durable rubber tread pattern inspires confidence in the face of the most rugged terrain. It’s perfect for all your favorite outdoor pursuits, including hiking, walking, fishing—or whatever else you hear in the call of the wild.

Feel the wind in your hair and a breeze on your feet with an open design that maximizes breathability and airflow. And there ain’t no river wide enough: TREAD is made with waterproof materials that are treated to hold up even when conditions get wet—and easy to wipe clean! Plus, a special non-wicking lining on the footbed keeps your foot secure, even when wet.

For reliability day in and day out, TREAD uses premium hook and loop fasteners on each strap that hold up to repeated use

Flimsy sandals deprive you of the stability your body needs, but TREAD changes things. How? Our proven KURUSOLE creates a comfortably firm foundation, while hugging your heels to more evenly distribute the force of each step. This makes TREAD the perfect trail sandal to deliver dynamic heel, ankle, and arch support.

Something this trail-ready with superior support is more than a shoe—it’s a KURU.
