It’s not often that I buy and re-buy the exact same model of a product, but I’ve had three pairs of the Adidas Hydroterra Shandal Water Shoe and they’ve all taken a serious beating. Mud, rain, rivers, lakes, epic squirt gun fights, barbecue sauce, backpacking day hikes, and more. I use them as adventure shoes and often as slippers around the house. Heck, during one year I played in the Spokane Hoopfest in pouring down rain on asphalt, I used them instead of my basketball shoes and got better traction.
The Adidas Hydroterra Shandal shoe is insanely great.
And the thing is, it’s unclear if Adidas is still manufacturing them — or for how long. So get yourself a pair now while you still can. Seriously. There’s a link to them on Amazon on my original review on Man Makes Fire. Go there now, then get a pair for yourself.
