Teva Obern 11
Teva Toachi 11
Teva Katavi 11
Teva Hurricane 11
Hurricane - these are very nice and highly adjustable because of the way the heel and mid-foot strapping integrates together. This was only true for the Hurricanes. It was possible to get them to fit quite comfortably, in spite of the material looking like it might be harsh, because of the way these can be adjusted for fit - and because the heel strap can ride very low on the heel vs. on the ankle.
One thing I did not like in the Hurricanes was the velcro running all the way down to the sole of the shoe. For me, velcro picks up lint and fluff all the time and having that huge amount of excess ‘hook’ portion of velcro is not a good thing. I am certain that after a short time that would be just a mass of stuff picked up and stuck to the ‘hook’ velcro segment that is left exposed.
I found, however, that for me the Katavi were more comfortable than the Hurricanes because of the extra strap padding and the mesh and padded panels. Because I don’t need them for water, the Katavi made better sense. There was virtually no exposed velcro for them when they were adjusted to fit me - another plus.
Hurricane 10 1/2 oz 295g (single mens 11)
Here are the differences and comparisons of the various sandals (see photos):
Weight of single sandal (size 11):
Obern 383g (13 1/2oz)
Toachi 343g (12oz)
Katavi 308g (10 3/4oz)
Hurricane 295g (10 1/2oz)
Note that that the Katavi and Hurricane XLT weigh almost exactly the same, even though the Hurricane is billed as ultra-light and the Katavi not advertised as such so much by Teva.
The four from top, side, tread are in review photos.
Hurricane and Katavi had identical treads with different slightly foot beds. The shape and foot fit of the beds was virtually identical for the Hurricane and Katavi. The Obern was close, but had a higher arch support and was more rigid and felt a bit narrower at the middle foot. I felt the arch support too much on the Oberns. The Toachi in contrast had an extremely narrow tread and footbed and my foot could not even fit on it.
All of these were size 11 in mens - but they fit very differently.
The Hurricane and Katavi are the most similar, and the Katavi with the extra side mesh panels and suede material for the strapping was much more comfortable with and without socks. The material used for the Hurricanes was not nearly as comfortable and the expose rings added to that feeling compared to the Katavi. The Hurricanes, however, I expect would handle being wet better than the Katavi and dry faster.
