Thick (at 8mm) yet lightweight sandal for distance running and long hikes
Named after the historic lava dome of Kameni Chora in Greece that erupted in 230 B.C., the Kamenis sandals are one of our asphalt cruiser models. They are probably the lightest and most minimal sandals around while giving you optimal ground feel, protection from road debris and glass, and some softness.
The Kamenis feature a 2mm thick footbed made of EVA, a material that has all the benefits of cork; it's super lightweight and has a soft 'cushiony' feel, while it outperforms cork on durability. They're waterproof but they can get slippery when wet so we don't recommend them for wet conditions. The footbed is pressure glued onto a 6 mm Vibram Mandorlo Morflex sole.
Like all Panta sandals the Kamenis feature the 3-in-1 strap system. One continuous strap is fixed to the sole with a full metal plug. A single sliding buckle gives you three options for wearing. They're shipped as pictured in what we call the diagonal-fixed set-up. This is the most all-round set-up that we've chosen as the standard set-up for our sandals.
