Since moving to Montana, I’ve discovered so many adventures in the surrounding areas. Whether it’s hanging out lakeshore, hiking the trails of the National Forest, walking downtown or visiting the Farmer’s Market, opportunities to get outdoors abound. When I’m going to be walking around a lot, it’s important that I have comfortable footwear.

Their high-performance footwear is designed to survive treks on the trails, trips to the mall, or any other adventure that keeps you on your feet. There is a variety of functional and stylish Viakix hiking and walking sandals for men and women to choose from.
Viakix Samara Walking Sandal
I had the opportunity to review the Viakix Samara Walking Sandal in Beige. The Samara is just one of the many outdoor and walking sandals Viakix offers. The pattern and design of the thin straps give the sandals a more feminine feel. I also like that the sandals don’t look too clunky. You could easily pair these with a day dress, maxi or skirt.
Sizing Tip: Viakix recommends that you size up if you’re between sizes (they don’t offer half sizes.) I wear a size 7.5 and ordered a size 8. I was concerned the sandal would look too big, but it actually fit me perfectly.
One of the things that impressed me the most about the Viakix sandal was the cushioned, ergonomic sole. The EVA foam midsole provides a great balance of support and cushion. I can feel the foam compress a little when I walk, reducing the stress on my joints. At the same time, the sandal still provided great support for my foot, including arch support. The Samara Viakix walking sandal also has a thick, rugged rubber outsole and a nice, grippy tread which helps it to easily handle trails, sidewalks, or even water terrain.
If you’ve ever gotten blisters from uncomfortable sandal straps, then you’ll know how important the design, placement, and materials of the straps of the sandal are to overall comfort. The Samara sandal straps are an elastic webbing that stretches comfortably around your foot. As I walked, the straps kept my foot securely in place and never became too tight. The webbing is also quick-drying in the event your sandals get wet. Viakix thoughtfully put a pad around the heel strap which keeps the strap from digging into the heel as you walk. For me, it also helped prevent blisters on the heel.
As soon as I strapped my foot in and took my first step, I knew these would be seriously comfortable walking sandals. It is clear to me that Viakix thoughtfully considered fashion, quality, comfort, and durability in the design of the Samara Walking Sandal. I’m very impressed and these sandals are now what I grab anytime I’ll be walking around outdoors.
The Viakix Samara Walking Sandal is available in colors Grey, Black, Blue, and Beige in sizes 6-11. Normally priced at $69.99, these outdoor sandals are currently on sale for $49.99 on viakix.com. Select Viakix sandals in various styles are also available on Amazon.
