The Uinta started out as an experiment that combined the Pah Tempe strap design with the original Wokova straps and a toe post for an extremely stable and rugged sport sandal. The Uinta is great for water hikes and rough terrain but is also stylish enough for everyday wear. Most minimalist sandals are based on the ancient huarache design. The Uinta is unique because instead of having a toe post, the straps create a loop around the big toe along with a strap that goes over the front of the foot. This toe loop tension can be adjusted separately to give the big toe freedom of movement. The toe loop can be pulled flat and worn without the loop for situations where socks may be desired, such as a chilly morning on a backpacking trip. This model offers an 8mm stack height, zero-drop

Approximate weight for W10/M9: 10 oz/pair

Customer Reviews

I bought these because they looked comfy, but also stable. Flip flops and thongs will stabilize the front part of the shoe but leave the back open to slide around or let you slide out the back. Other hiking style sandals will stabilize the back of the shoe but only wrap over the top of the front of your foot, which allows you to slide forward in the shoe. These mix the best parts of both designs, and I absolutely love them. They disappear on your foot, and you don't even realize that you're wearing them when you get your fit dialed in. My wife thought they were ugly and made fun of me for buying more "hippy shoes" after I showed her pictures, but when I put them on, her exact words were, "OK, those actually look pretty sick." lol
I think they're great. Highly recommend.

Great sandals

I bought a pair of these about five summers ago and love them! The thickness is perfect and I like that the toe strap is optional. Makes them super versatile. I wear them (nearly) exclusively in the spring and summer. Considering replacing mine as the tread is wearing down which can make downhill hiking a little dicey, but other than that they’re still going strong. Please don’t discontinue these!

Best minimalist shoe

I've been wearing these and literally no other shoe since 2018. I'm on my third pair. I've taken them to the tops of Machu Picchu to the oceans of Indonesia. I go running every morning with them and walk the amusement parks of Florida with my family in them. I love these shoes.

With as much wear as I put on them they tend to only last about a year before the glue starts to separate and then foreign debris starts to get stuck between layers. That's really my only complaint. Wish they lasted a bit longer, but with as much use as I get out of them I definitely still feel like they are worth it.

If you've never worn a minimalist shoe before it might take a few weeks for your feet to get used to being used again, but after a bit your feet will get stronger and they will feel better than ever.

David, we are so happy to hear that the Uintas travel everywhere you go and that they have been a staple for you! We'd love to see some photos of their travel with you if you'd ever like to share! unshoesmarketing@gmail.com

Just Ok

I liked the sandals when I first got them. The strap system is easy to figure out and tighten. I’ve had my sandals for a month and one of the buckles is already broken. I haven’t done anything strenuous in them.

Hi Ashley, we're so sorry to hear about your broken shoe buckle! It should most definitely not break like that, please contact our customer service so that we can help you out!

Going on 3 years!

I’m tall (6’4”) and went to flat shoes to address back and knee issues. I also wanted a sandal I could run in. I am glad I bought these! While the first month was painful (my calves and legs got used to walking correctly!) afterwards I wore them everywhere all the time. Back and knee pain are now a thing of the past. I’ve run a few 5k’s in them. Numerous long hikes. They are one of the best products I’ve ever owned. The soles have lost a bit of tread, but all else is fine. If you hike a lot, especially on varying terrain, I recommend this sandal because of the toe strap which gives extra stability and confidence in step placement. Don’t change a thing with this design!


Our sizing is based on standard shoe sizing and is typically true to size, however, we suggest measuring your foot and and using the shoe size chart below to determine the best size for you. Stand with your heel against a wall and place a ruler or measuring tape along your foot to measure the total distance from the wall to the longest part of your foot. If you already own a pair of Unshoes sandals, you will likely wear the same size but please check the chart to make sure.
