Summer is the perfect time to explore the great outdoors, and this year we're ditching our chunky hiking boots and trail-running shoes in favor of breathable footwear that won't get waterlogged as you cross streams and walk past waterfalls. Yes, we're hiking in sandals!
They're also great for traveling — even if there isn't any climbing involved — especially if you're headed to a new city where you'll be racking up the miles as you explore by foot.
