Summary

Can't live without these!

Pros

  • DRY SO FAST!
  • SO COMFY!

Cons

  • The mesh will tear over 5 years! :P

Love these shoes! I'm a canoeing/portageing guide and I couldn't live without these shoes! I've worn mine for 5 years now and the mesh is completely gone on them, but I still wear them for their comfort and for how fast they dry.

They give me the support I need for portaging and hiking. Every now and then I get a blister from them, but lets face it, if you're hiking with wet feet 24/7 any shoes you wear will give you a blister no mater how much you've broken them in. It's part of being outside!

Very disappointed in these shoes. They rubbed the back of my ankle and slipped very easily on wet rocks. My husband also bought a pair and was disappointed. His $15 sandals were less slippery on the wet rocks then the Salomon shoes. I do not recommend these. However, they do look pretty cool and were lightweight, but I don't think that outweighs the negatives.

Salomon Techamphibian - The Mens Salomon TechAmphibian is a sporty adventurous sandal made to go where you want to go. Whether your walking on the beach or doing some island hiking the TechAmphibian is there to meet your needs. The tough mesh upper not only provides exceptional breathability, but also allows water to drain out, since you don't want to be carrying the river in your shoes long after you've stepped out of it. A non marking Water Contragrip outsole keeps you on your feet as you traverse slippery terrain like a river bed. With this Salomon sandal's patented convertible heel and Quickfit lacing system, the TechAmphibian can be secured to your foot for a snug fit to enable security in the fact that this sandal wont come off your foot. With the protection of a shoe with the functionality of a sandal, give your feet the air they need with the Mens Salomon Techamphibian Sandals.

The Salomon Women's Techamphibian blurs the line between sandal and shoe. It protects your feet like a shoe, but drains water like a sandal. The synthetic mesh upper and Quickfit lacing won't absorb water, so you don't have to carry around extra weight while your shoes dry. An adjustable, convertible heel folds out of the way when you need a slip-on for a quick jaunt out of your tent in the middle of the night. Built for professional river guides, canyoneers, and adventure racers who make frequent transitions between wet and dry environments, the sticky Contagrip sole gives you traction over variable terrain.

No other Salomon shoe sells as well as the Techamphibian shoe. Whether you're on the trail or pushing off from the shoreline this versatile shoe has you confidently protected with superior comfort and exceptional grip. While other trail and paddle shoes attempt to make the transition from land to water and back, Salomon's Techamphibian does it better with a breathable single-layer of air mesh along the upper that dries faster than other forms of textile or suede upper configurations. In back you'll find a versatile heel strap that you can adjust to fit your needs both in and out of your boat, kayak or raft. A Quickfit lacing system up top allows for easy fit modifications without the hassles of knots or double lacing. If convenience floats your boat, Salomon's Techamphibian is one of the best you'll find on any body of water.
