An all-in-one water shoe for canyoneering, river rafting, canoeing, anywhere you expect to get your feet wet, the Mion Tide Scramble sandal is built for variety. If not for their lightweight airy feel, these sandals would arguably step out of the sandal category for they include a unique bootie for protection from debris that typical sport sandal straps cannot stop. Part of what makes the Mion Tide Scramble women's sandal remain so sandal-like is the innovative Super-Structure upper. This molded rib and toecap unit overlays the protective bootie, further protecting the foot, while also offering lateral support. The underfoot comfort is innovative too, as an Ergomorphic foam footbed adapts to the shape of the user's foot within the first 12 hours of use. Mion's Gripstick rubber and Quad-Cut siping provide excellent traction over varied wet and dry terrain. Also, by design the Mion Tide Scramble sandal is durable yet lightweight, and built to remain feather light even after a serious soaking. The foam Super-Structure does not retain water and the entire upper is treated with the most advanced durable water repellency (DWR) available.
