I have been in need of a new pair of summertime gym shoes, and the Tilden V from Ahnu looked like they would be perfect. I have not owned a pair of Ahnu shoes and was excited to try them out for summer. Normally, I would go with a neutral color, but I wanted to jazz it up a bit and decided to go with the Colony Blue, which actually looked more like cornflower than blue once it arrived. The Tilden V also comes in black, deep teal and a bright purple called Dahlia.
The Tilden V features Numentum Traverse technology. What the heck is that you ask? It is a fancy way to say that the shoe is lightweight, and offers athletic flexibility. The Numentum Traverse technology also offers extra cushioning for better shock absorption and helps your foot with natural movement.
The Tilden V Features:
- Lightweight dual-density EVA midsole and footbed for comfort and shock absorption
- Integrated adjustable webbing for a snug fit
- Adjustable heel straps for secure heel positioning
- ESS plate on the outsole to protect the foot from rocks
I have worn these several times now and love them! They provide great support when walking around. I wore them to an amusement park and my feet were not sore and tired like when I wear flip flops all day. I also like that they are adjustable, my last pair of summer gym shoes were not. This is a nice feature for swollen feet or if you would like to wear a pair of socks with them. The quick-dry mesh and water-friendly webbing is a great feature if you plan on being around water. The deep treads on the bottom also provide great traction.
Ahnu also offers hiking, slip-on, boots yoga shoes for both men and women. The quality and comfort of these were great, Ahnu would definitely be on my shortlist when looking for my next pair of sandals.
