My first pair of Teva Terra Fi's were bought 12 years ago in Auckland and it was love at first step. They are still in use for occasional gardening duty. I've bought at least 8 more pairs since and would happily wear nothing else if I got away with it. They are equally brilliant walking around cities as they are in forests and on beaches. I just about get away with wearing them to work in summer even if they are a little on the casual side I don't care. They also stay looking like new even after years of wear. The Terra Fi 4s are the best yet but why oh why can't we have more vibrant colours with lighter coloured soles? Happily I bought 3 pairs of the lovely purple ones that were available a few years ago, them and an even older red pair with keep me going for a while but I would love to see a bright green or orange or yellow or red or blue ... anything that isn't dull and mucky. Brighter colours are available in other ranges but I like the sturdiness of the Terra Fi 4s and don't want to buy anything else.
