Gadling Gear Review: KEEN Turia Sandal

Kick off May with our new summer sandal, the Turia. Perfect for all your warm weather adventures, the sleek profile features an active heel lock for secure fit and additional stability, along with razor siping on the sole for superb traction on wet, slick surfaces. recently tested a pair and called the Turias “an excellent choice for travelers looking for a lightweight and versatile shoe to take with them on their next adventure.” Here’s more from the review:

All of these features make the Turia an excellent choice for travelers who are looking for a versatile and comfortable shoe to take with them nearly anywhere. Their compact and flexible design make them easy to pack and their stylish good looks keep them appropriate for light hiking, visits to the beach or just kicking around town. In fact, that versatility is perhaps my favorite feature of these sandals, which were one of just two pairs of shoes that I took with me on a recent visit to the country of Jordan, where they proved to be equally adept at both trekking in the desert and visiting the beaches of the Red Sea.
