When I learned that I’d be testing sandals designed and manufactured in Israel, my immediate thought was “can I be objective?”. As a gear junkie and former leatherneck, I’ve learned to appreciate everything from boots to machine guns coming out of Israel. Simple yet intelligent designs that are overbuilt to take whatever you throw at it. The Source ‘Crosser’ sandal from Vagabond Systems did not disappoint. In hand, I immediately noticed that the soles were much more substantial than other sport sandals. The high quality rubber had me jonesing to try these out on some rock slab. The Crosser is designed for river crossing but the outer sole has traction cross sections at the ball and heel of the foot to support other activities. The sandals were very comfortable on sand, rock, and out on the town. Source’s ‘Onestrap’ system uses a single piece of strap that moves freely through the foot-bed and adjusts using one piece of hardware. Genius. The fit was true to size and the feel is sturdy and stable, leaving the underfoot protected. Stability is enhanced using Source’s ‘A.R.T. (Advanced Rubber Technology) Grip’ rubber footbed with hundreds of micro points that holds the foot even wet. While the sandal’s strapping will not support ascending and descending rugged trail for most (not what it was designed for), it provided all the protection and comfort of a high-end hiking boot sole, the relief of a sandal, and the utility of a water shoe. Very well done.
