Vibram® Gumlite Outsole: Sourced Domestically for Quality

The Gumlite outsole provides excellent traction, making it suitable for various terrains and outdoor activities. You can trust in the reliability and longevity of this exceptional sole.
No Footbed for a Natural Feel
In its pursuit of providing a close-to-nature experience, the Elemental sandal does not include a footbed. This design choice allows you to feel the ground beneath your feet more directly, enhancing your connection with the natural environment. The absence of a footbed offers a unique sensation and encourages a more natural and unrestricted stride.
