These Iconic, Albeit Ugly, Hiking Sandals Just Got the Lifestyle Treatment

Teva teamed up with Snow Peak to update the classic XLT Hurricane.

Teva’s classic XLT Hurricane sandal is not the pinnacle of beauty. Sure, it’s rugged as heck, but the classic outdoor footwear — through many collaborations and permutations — has always eschewed form for function. The brand’s new collaboration with Snow Peak, however, gives the XLT Hurricane an attractive upgrade. The Japan-based company makes rarefied outdoor gear that looks as good as it works, so it’s no surprise they did away with the Hurricane’s all-black colorway and funky strap prints. The straps and footbed on the Snowpeak collab are a desaturated hue of blue, complemented by a speckled rubber sole.

The Hurricane drops on September 1 and will retail for $160, but is available for preorder at snowpeak.co.jp.
