Named after the Methana peninsula in Greece that contains some 32 volcanoes, including the Methana volcano. The Methanas sandals are made for trail blazing. They are built like a tank and at the same time give you the ground feel of your bare feet. Gravel, protruding roots, lava stones; throw anything at them and they will grind through and keep your feet safe from harm.
The Methanas 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 5mm Vibram Lisk Newflex rubber sole. This sole has an aggressive tread pattern and exceptional resistance to wear. It is thin, strong, comfortable, and gives you all the traction you need when venturing off the paved roads. Like all Panta sandals the Methanas straps are made to fit, to save weight and prevent loose ends. The weight is further reduced by integrating VelcroTM fasteners and silicone heel gripper into the straps, keeping them compact and close fitting.
