[post-sport foot massagers] The North Face Basecamp
If your immediate post-hike ritual involves ditching the hiking boots for a comfy camp shoe, these sandals should be ready and waiting outside the tent. Their magic lies in an egg-crate-like footbed made of EVA foam that subtly massages the bottom of the foot. The rippled foam further prevents feet from sliding around even when hot and sweaty. The PVC-free Hypalon (a form of rubber resistant to UV rays & temperature extremes) straps are jersey lined and our testers experienced no rubbing or blisters, even after the first wear. If keeping your sandals clean is a concern, opt for sandals with darker straps. One downside: There is little arch support and several testers found long walks uncomfortable. But for that post-hike trek from camp chair to cooler, these sandals shine.
