Teva X-1 Trail Running Shoes
Weight: 9.8 oz (280 g)
The Teva X-1 is another very light trail running shoe in the mode of not interfering with the foot’s natural biomechanics. It is suitable for adventure racing, ultra running, and other hardcore outdoor endeavors. One of its strengths is that it absorbs little water and its open mesh upper drains water quickly. It’s a Tech Amphib with a real heel counter. You can run through a river and the shoes drain immediately. The ventilated mesh helps your socks dry quickly.
We believe that the Teva X-1 would work well as an ultralight backpacking shoe, especially in wet environments with lots of wading. It would also make a good paddling or canoeing shoe where you need to do hiking or portages. But realistically they should work equally well in dry environments.
