If a resort retreat is in your plans in the coming months, then rugged sport sandals should be a must-have item in your suitcase. High-performance styles can handle any terrain, from a trek through the hills to a beachside stroll — or even a walk through the local shopping districts.
Key features to look for when selecting a sport sandal are nonslip soles, sculpted footbeds and fitted straps. Or just scroll down to check out some of FN’s picks for men’s styles that are available now.
1. Astral Men’s Filipe Sandal
The flip-flop comes with an attachable ankle strap, for when you’re ready for action.

The water-ready style has three hook-and-loop closures for a fully customized fit.
6. Teva Hurricane XLT Sandal
This sport style features tough webbing straps and a contoured EVA footbed.
