A semi-closed sandal which offers a great balance between breathability and protection.
The Meindl Sambia
walks the line between shoe and sandal. It has nice open side vents which allows air to circulate around the foot but has a covered toe box which keeps gravel and stones from sliding under the foot.
It has a Clima lining and an AIR-ACTIVE® removable insole.
The outer sole is Vibram rubber with an integrated shock absorber EVA midsole.
The Sambia would be a great choice for a lightweight breathable shoe for spring /summer and it would be perfect for walking in warmer conditions and climates.

All-round minimalist winner, 13 November 2016
By HoppityHare (Malvern, Worcestershire)
I went in looking for Meindl sandals but there were none in stock – except the Sambias. Of course, they’re not a sandal in any real sense but what they ARE is an excellent minimalist shoe for all-round use. I’ve walked hundreds of miles in them on both roads and rocky paths and found the Vibram soles cope with both. The soles are thin enough to give good feel without being painfully thin. I have mostly worn them without socks and that was no problem from new – no breaking in, despite the fact that I hadn’t worn sandals for a couple of years. They may not be as light as some of the newer specialist minimal trail shoes, nor quite as grippy on rock but they are a great all-rounder, especially given that they are so much cheaper than many specialist shoes.
