disappointing!

By 

from London and Cyprus

Teva user for many yrs. Began with leather top+lining. Beautiful fit. Heaven. This "original" model fails on fit; unadjustable side strap too loose to be comfortable.

    A lovely pair of sandals that I was in desperate need for. I use them for the school run every morning/afternoon. I wanted something more supportive than flip flops but not too formal.
    I am a big fan of Tevas and these might be my 4-5 pair!

    OK for walking on water

        The only sandal I know of that recover perfectly from getting wet, so I will happily let them go in the sea or stream and rinse them off afterwards. Anything leather would be ruined but these recover fine (though I have needed to pick seaweed out of the velcro). Very very comfortable too. Multi-adjustable too. I must get another pair and abuse them less.

        Wide Feet - Nothing Beats Teva

        I have wide feet at the point where my toes join my foot. In the summer and with sandals it's a real problem for me to find anything comfortable.
        I bought a pair of these last year in one of the Aztec prints and instantly loved them!

        I knew I would need to break them in but I have a trick that works with no damage to the shoe at all.
        I soak the front in hot water, and have several pairs o thick fluffy socks at the ready.
        Socks go on, Tevas go on as tightly as possible and then I do my housework in them switching socks to dry ones when needed. It only takes one or two goes doing this for about an hour at a time for these to become the most comfortable sandal I have ever worn!

        I walk everywhere and this style of sandal is the only one that I can happily walk to and from work (1.5 miles each way) in, plus run errands, plus wear all through the day every day.
        The other thing about breaking them in as I do is that I have extra leeway to loosen them on a hot afternoon when my feet swell a little.
        I also wear the ankle strap fairly loose so that my foot can sit a little more forward in them so my little toe doesn't hit the plastic ring. If I do the ankle strap too tight then my little pinky will get a blister.

        I wear a size 3-4 and I measured as advised on the site, ordered a size 3 and they are the perfect length.

        I loved my first pair so much that this year I ordered some in the same style but the black iridescent colour. I love them 'almost' as much as my first pair - almost but not quite as the first pair were in Old Lizard Red (one of last year's colours) and I absolutely adore the colour of them.

        For the first time I now have two pairs of gorgeous sandals in great colours that I can wear all day everyday instead of always having to carry a pair of socks and trainers to fall back on.
        I just wish I had found Teva sandals 20 years ago!

          Bought these for a 2 week travelling holiday in Vietnam. Needed to pack light so I wanted comfy sandals that I could wear every day. As soon as I tried them on I didn't want to take them off!
