Sanuk Enduro & Flurry
Water-resistant, ultra-warm, easy on-off, and anti-microbial to prevent the stank: that’s our list of essential qualities for the perfect shoe to wear to the gym day after day during the slushy cold season. It’s also exactly what you’ll find with Sanuk’s Enduro (men’s) and Flurry (women’s) ($110 and $120, respectively; sanuk.com). Our male and female testers were impressed with how the upper extends down into the sole, creating a seal around the edge that kept out water on those mixed rain-snow days, and both the Enduro and Flurry were really warm thanks to luxurious liners. “A cloud on your feet,” our lady tester said of the synthetic fur in her kicks. Even our notoriously funky tester couldn’t stink them up—this includes after wearing his offensive climbing shoes for hours—thanks to the AEGIS anti-microbial treatment from Microban® that is built into the lining to kill odor-causing bacteria during the manufacturing process. Bonus for both: their looks. Testers liked the laid-back style and found themselves grabbing them for gym sessions and nights on the town.
