Teva Sunkosi 2009

The Teva Sunkosi multi-activity shoe weighs 712g (pair, size 11); mesh upper; excellent sole comfort; snug elasticated lacing system; good toe bumper; sole has good grip, good stiffness and drainage holes. But not waterproof and not as protective, hard-wearing or supportive as more conventional shoes; others are better for scrambling, biking or walking on rough terrain.

Verdict: The Teva Sunkosi is an unusual shoe; fills a niche as a lightweight shoe for use in B&Bs, huts, etc and for watersports, casual use.
