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.

As a matter of fact, the shoes come on feeling incredibly comfortable. It's only after an hour or more of sustained walking and standing in the Original Universal sandals that I had issues: 1) The support was less than I've experienced in other sandals, and I require orthopedic support in a sandal that I'm going to wear for any length of time - running errands, doing family day trips, etc.; and, 2) The rub.

The print is beautiful and accurate. I bought the Miramar Coral & Sun/Moon Insignia Blue pairs. The Original Universal sandals will have to do, but I'm disappointed.

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.

These are so simple, and the lack of random extra straps (looking at you, Chaco) definitely contributes to their comfiness. I love the way they look, I love the way they feel, and I love how durable they seem to be. I've only had them for a few weeks but have definitely gotten some mileage out of them already, and they still look brand new.

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.
I like the way they fit on my feet. I have very short feet, but they are slightly on the wide side. It may just take some getting used to, but you have two sets of adjustable straps. So unless you just have weirdly shaped feet like me then you should be good to go ordering these. I have worn these almost everyday since I took them out the box and I don’t regret buying them at all.

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
