The Columbia Techsun Vent PFG Flip is a fishign sandal featuring water drainage ports that allow water to drain from the midsole for more comfortable wear and quicker drying. Not all sandals are created equally, a statement you'll find to be true once you've worn a pair of Columbia's performance fishing flip flops. The Techsun Vent PFG Flip provides wearers with the vented water drainage technology that has become increasingly popular since it's introduction some years ago. Columbia's patented ventilation system enables water to escape the sole of the shoe while also allowing free flow of air to the foot decreasing moisture build up from both sweat and water contact that is common when boating.
Another major consideration when selecting footwear for boating is the traction it provides. Boat decks are inherently slippery, water on the deck of a boat is expected, so shoes worn on deck must have traction to provide security and stability. The Techsun Vent PFG Flip uses a siping process - (Siping is a process of cutting thin slits across a rubber surface to improve traction in wet or icy conditions) - that increases the traction of the rubber outersole by allowing standing water to displace into the slits of the rubber as the wearer steps down on it. These flip flops actually grip into the deck rather than just walking across it allowing wearers to be in complete control even in wet conditions. Another feature worth noting is the sandal's comfort largely derived by the Techlite midsole which provides a comfortable footbed with extra support. You're getting a lot of cushioning, but not necessarily squishy type of softness. Instead, Techlite absorbs the force of the wearer and distributes it properly through the foot for a higher energy return to the user and more ergonomic stability.
The performance features are awesome, but you still want to look good; am I right? The Columbia Techsun Vent PFG Flip is a cool looking sandal that is quite suitable for wear on the boat or general leisure wear. A poly urethane coated leather upper section complete with a Marlin fish design gives these sandals that Key West vibe to them that will share your passion with the world, but not go overboard... so to speak.
