These 9.5-ounce Tevas feature a rounded heel that encourages hikers (or runners) to land midfoot, forcing a forward-leaning position. Their other unique feature? Three-and-a half-inch-wide, shock-absorbing pods on either side of the arch. Testers either loved the stability the pods added on flat trails or couldn’t get used to how conspicuous they felt, especially on rocky, technical terrain. One thing is for sure: if you’re serious about hiking more efficiently, the ’Spheres are like training wheels that remind you of your form.
