That funk coming from the trunk isn’t your Hedgefrogs.
Share your thoughts
Have a pair of Keen Newport h2, so have to compare them. The keens are more rugged and overall more comfortable mostly due to the footbed - the material compresses better. The hedgefrog fit better and closer to the foot, are lighter and are still comfortable. I think the hedgefrog is a better choice for boating/canoeing/kayaking type activity but still feasible for camping/hiking/trail, with the Newport a better choice for overall hiking/walking.
it is not a flexible sole. I really disappointed with this product. it really pained my under foot.
I would, as other reviewers have stated, give these five stars but for the unknown of their long-term durability; that is the only concern.
Up front: This is my first technical sandal, and I haven't purchased a new set of hiking boots since my Solomons of the late 90s / early 2000s. I'm completely blown away.
This past weekend I wore them to the Paradise alpine meadows on Mount Rainier, and did a healthy portion of the Skyline Trail. They handled all of the terrain splendidly, with the exception of large slushy snowpacks. The fact that they can run a little warm in summer was a non-issue when splashing readily through run-off and the few creeks. While others strove for dry feet, I charged right through everything.
Contrary to some reviews, smaller pebbles can get stuck in the toe, but a quick dip in moving water is generally enough to flush them.
I regularly wear these for my weekly Ultimate game on an irrigated athletic field that is more marsh than turf. They provide better traction than sneaks (though obviously not as much as cleats), and seem to revel in the sloppiness.
They even function admirably as a walking shoe.
I will definitely continue to purchase Hedgefrogs if their durability proves as impressive as their functionality.
I'll give em 5 stars if they hold up, but here is my comparison.
Keen- These hug the foot much better, less sloppy than the bungie cord and straps of Keen. The footbed isn't as soft, but none are.
Oakley- Water shoes-The eyelets for the pull laces keep breaking on my O's, The TNF eyelets appear much more durable and well built. (no plastic)
TNF- The pull string does a great job of tightening the whole shoe. Feels like you could run in em when needed without sliding all over.
Great pair of water shoes
The only reson they don't get 5 star is in the heat of summer they get a bit hot if you just wear them
in the water!
All you Neeed
These things are the Beeez Kneeez! Was looking for the perfect shoe for the summer and didn't know if I should get Hikers or Sandals. And these get the Job done no matter what! True to fit, I rock a 10.5 shoe and I got the 11's and there a super nice fit. The lacing system is a breeeze, just slip it on, pull the drawstring, and your ready to rock. I wear these any where from Frolfing to Running on trails and they have yet to impress me
How are these for arch support?

HEDGE FROG SOLE / BOTTOM
Comfortable out of the box and super versatile sandal. Perfect addition to my desert and summer kit. Does not trap loose sand or gravel in the shoe and also dries real quick after being submersed. Top quality from TNF.
Does anyone know how good these sandals...
Does anyone know how good these sandals are for mountain biking? do the bottom soles have enough grip for clip less pedals?
Used them for a long walk, not off road, as soon as had them and for a long mountain biking session the day after: very comfy and good quality quality, only downside is that the size is just right, so I'd suggest to go for a half size up.
I'll put them on real test soon in Mexico
Nice shoe but not for me,
I bought this shoe for hiking with the idea it would be something nice to have for crossing an occasional stream. When I tried them on and walked around the house the sole didn't seem to roll smoothly, like a good walking shoe. It might be good for jumping around on rocks but not for long distance events. I liked the looks and the concept but had to return them.
My buddy calls these "Shandals" because they are half shoe and half sandal. They are great for summer/warm weather in the woods and water. I used these wet wading and hiking in YNP for 10 days and the performed excellent. When wet wading, you can wear barefoot or put on a bootie if the water is cold. When hiking, wear them with socks to keep your feet a little cleaner and absorb the sweat. When just wearing around, wear with no socks and let your feet breathe. They are a little slippery on wet rocks (as expected) but they dry fast, are super comfortable (no blisters or sore feet or little scrapes from the heel).
The black look good with jeans, shorts, hiking pants, everything.
Considering everyone and their brother owns and wears Keen sandals, I wanted a sandal that stood apart from the rest of the herd. Rest assured this sandal achieves that objective--soft, light, trendy, and simply awesome! Would have given 5 stars, but I had major issues with TNF's sizing. I typically wear a size 11.0 and after multiple returns, I finally found that i needed a size 12.0 in this sandal.
These shoes look pretty good!
I'd like to get them soon, since they look pretty cool and comfortable.
