We are talking about sandals designed specifically for walking, we don’t advise you to go into the mountains in flip-flops or poolside sliders. Hiking requires an adapted type of sandal with a sole that offers cushioning and grip. This will prevent you from falling and injuring yourself on trails.
Are you going hiking on a trail when it's hot and dry? Sandals will surely be recommended to enjoy your walk without weighing you down and will always keep your feet cool.
Their anti-slip soles are designed to provide great comfort but also a lot of grip on the paths. And of course, you can cross a small stream or two without worrying as your shoes will dry quickly.
That said, if your sandals are made of leather, they won’t appreciate the passage through water. So be sure to check that the sandals are suitable for your route.
If you hike regularly or go backpacking to explore new countries, go for a comfortable sandal with good cushioning and spikes to ensure optimum grip.
If you're looking for sandals for occasional use or to rest after an intense day of sport, you can opt for a light and compact model that will be perfect for bivouacs or camping, for example.
