Please help me find some awesome men's water-friendly hiking sandals. Problem: narrow, low-volume feet!
I need to replace my ancient-old falling-apart hiking sandals. These are the shoes I take when bare feet would result in cuts but full shoes or boots would carry too much water: playing in the creek, hiking around tidal ponds, etc. I'd like a toe cap (rocks!), a strap that goes around the back of the foot, and something that drains and dries as fast as possible. Something like this Keen Newport H2
would be ideal.
Sadly, I can't seem to find anyone who sells semi-rugged sandals in narrow widths. All the Tevas, Keens, etc., I tried on locally are way too wide and I also can't cinch them down enough! My Google search for narrow sandals doesn't net me anything, either. I'm happy to consider traditional-looking full shoes if they're mesh and drain/dry quickly, but I've never owned a pair like that so am not sure how well they'd work. (I'm a little concerned that the rocks here would tear up any mesh shoe like they do with mesh-paneled hiking boots.)
Alternately, if you have narrow feet and know a normal (D) width shoe that runs narrow and can easily be cinched down, that might work, too.
My feet are right between and A and B width, U.S. 10 or 10 1/2 (EU 43 or 44).
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
