From a grand canyon raft in 1984 to docks, stoops, and sidewalks around the world, one of teva's very first sandal stands as a testament to timeless comfort and utilitarian style.
Teva is an authentic icon in the outdoor industry. Founded in the early 1980's by a Colorado River guide, Teva pioneered the sport-sandal category. For more than 20 years on rivers, in canyons, and across the trails of the great outdoors, athletes and enthusiasts have traveled the globe comfortably and confidently in Teva footwear. Providing positive contributions to the world in which we play is at the core of everything Teva stands for. The Teva name itself is a Hebrew word meaning "nature" and the hand logo is the Hopi symbol for "friendship" and "water." Teva supports the outdoor athletic lifestyle and remains committed to innovation in outdoor performance footwear, the platforms which carry enthusiasts beyond the offices of the day-to-day and onto the rivers, trails, and canyons of the next adventure.
Love these! Fit great (I'm an 8.5 and ordered an 8). Feel great. Hold my feet in place. Bought them for the amusement park and camping outings.
Looking for the "original" classic Teva? This one's not it. The original had a roomier footbed - wider and longer for the same size - and a stiffer and much tougher outsole with better tread and grip. I spent years rock-hopping along the shoreline with my old Tevas, but I don't trust the new ones. Cheap cheap sandals that feel like they're gonna fall apart in a month. I'm sad :(. Photos: new on left, original on right. :(
This is my first Teva and it is very very comfortable. I got it for my lazy river tubing trip because I want to be able to walk under water with shoes. It is very cute and I am in love with it. I am a half size person 7.5 so I had hard time deciding size but I decided to go with 7 and they fit good. Length is bit tight but because I have narrow feet it works. 8 probably is bit too big. From my experience if you are half size and have narrow feet, I would go with smaller size and if you have wider feet, I would size up. Despite the narrowness of your feet, if you like having more space in the front of your shoe you can get bigger size as well. Overall, the shoe dried really quick and I love them.
These sandals are comfortable and provide the support I was looking for to do a lot of walking without wearing a pair of sneakers. I wear a half size and after the reading the reviews I ordered down instead of up as was my instinct to do. Ordering down was the way to go as I am happy with the fit. I wore these to Disney World and walked 9.5 miles 1 day and 10 the other. Other than being physically hot and tired my feet felt great!
I love Teva sandals, usually. As my title indicates, I'm surprised to be writing an essentially negative review of the Original Universal Sandal. I bought these 25 weeks into pregnancy, anticipating the hot, busy summer months, so keep that in mind as you weigh this review. However, I had the same problem that a few other reviews noted - an uncomfortable pull around the outer edge of the foot hear the baby toe, where the strap closer o the toes straps across the foot. I didn't notice the issue at all with a short wear.
Sizing! I’m between a 7.5 and an 8.0 size shoe, my foot is 9.5 inches. I was not sure what size to get. First tried the 8.0, but the toe strap did not hit the sides of my foot right, it was too far forward on my toes instead of on the main bones of the foot. There was a lot of extra room at the front of the shoe. I had to really strap down the ankle strap to keep my foot in which was uncomfortable. So I ordered the 7.0 and it fit much better. The toe straps did not just sit on my toes, but on the bone which is much more stable if you’re walking over watery rocks. Super cute and comfy. Great quality product.
When my well-loved Reef flip-flops broke a month ago, I was in dire need of a sandal I could easily throw on and walk miles in. I live in a fairly hot climate and walk everywhere, and I needed something that was as comfy as those Reefs. I saw these for a few dollars less and decided to try them out, and I'll just say this: I'm NEVER going to buy another brand of outdoor sandal.
After reading the other reviews I ordered a size smaller than I typically would have, and the result is in- they fit! The issue is apparently in the toe area, usually too big.
Practical, comfortable and as expected Teva is reliable. This is my fourth pair, of various styles, and are definitely what I look for in an ‘all purpose’ sandal.
Excellent purchase Very comfortable & good fit
Lovely colour, but unfortunately the soles didn't feel robust enough to give me the arch support I need. I think they would be fine for messing around on the beach, but not really for walking any great distance so I sent them back. Also, the strap at the back of the ankle is not adjustable like other Tevas are. The Hurricane sandal I bought instead feels way stronger and comfortable too.
Nice sandals but velcro straps too short for me, had to return
Perfect Teva. Been buying theses for years. Never break. Fit like a glove. Original Teva the best. Walk for miles
