Israel is famous for its comfortable Naot sandals.
We found two great factory stores (one in Gush Etzion outside Jerusalem) and the other up north on the Neot Mordechai Kibbutz.
They sell hundreds of Naot sandals and they also sell a brand called Shoresh. These are water sandals and once you wear them you will know why every Israeli has a pair. They dry easily, help you grip the rough terrain when climbing and are very comfortable.
The prices were really good and selection was amazing.
