Here’s the deal, you’re no quitter. When your day on the waters edge is done, you don’t tap out and head home for a nap. Your antics and adventures have merely just begun.
You don’t just need a water shoe. No my friend, you want a shoe that fuses hydro-functionality and street styling smarts giving you the best of both worlds. In other words, you’re looking for the Fuse-Ion from Teva. The Fuse-Ion has an impressive array of high-performance qualities equally well suited for both your aquatic and nomadic adventures.
Whether you’re wearing water shoes for the functionality, or simply looking for a stylish shoe that offers your feet extra ventilation in the stifling summer heat, the Fuse-ion ensures that you don’t have to choose between water savvy performance and street cred.
Ripstop and mesh uppers provide durability and longevity. Perforations throughout the upper allow for maximum ventilation and water drainage while river rif-raf out.
And because sometimes you don’t have the extra moment to lace-up your shoes, the Fuse-ion features collapsible heels so you can slip in and out with ease.
The Teva design team has also incorporated their fused Ion-mask™ technology, which prevents materials from absorbing water on a molecular level.
Originally developed for military clothing designed to repel chemical agents, Teva is one of the early adopters to incorporate it into their footwear. What you need to know is that this cutting edge technology helps keep you drier and means you’ll end up carrying less of the muck and mire from wet Spring trails back home.
Whether you’re traversing slick river rock, or glossy concrete floors at the local watering hole, you can put your faith in Teva’s non-marking Spider Rubber® + JStep outsole which provides exceptional traction on wet, dry and even greasy surfaces. It’s one of Teva’s best outsoles ever. Don’t just take our word for it… check out Teva’s lab test here.
Room for Improvement…
There’s a lot to love about the Teva Fuse-ion. If however we’re forced to nitpick, then there are two critiques we’d offer. First, we were admittedly surprised by the weight of the shoe. The Fuse-ion is a tad heavier than other water shoes on the market. However, the flip side is that this water shoe also offer more support and stability for all day wear. Additionally, we’d like to see slightly more vertical room in the toe box on future iterations.
An athletic inspired, street styled water shoe, the Teva® Fuse-Ion™ takes you where you need to go without sacrificing the style you want for your post aquatic adventures. Heck, even Aquaman would be jealous of a shoe with this much functionality.
