First of all... these shoes look as amazing as they feel! I am a size 8 and have very narrow feet and small ankles, and after getting the size 8 home I realised that I had to try the size 7 as my feet were slipping and I was having the pull the straps very tight and my feet could have had a little more of a snug fit in the footbed. However, I have ordered the size 7 and will try them on for comparison. Putting that aside... these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased! The leather straps are very comfortable and don't irritate my skin and the footbed material is very comfy, not too spongy and not too hard. These shoes will be great for walking around in on holiday, and once I have found the perfect size I will want to wear them everyday because they are that great! Aesthetically they are beautiful and are really something different. I love them so much that I will be purchasing some flatforms too!

I got the black iridescent in a size 3 and after a little break in for my wide feet they are just perfect!
I soak the front straps in hot water, wear thick fluffy socks and do the straps up a tight as possible whilst they dry - meanwhile I do my housework.
I simply cannot wear any other summer sandals as even using my break in trick has never helped much.
These have a softer slightly heavier sole than the original universals (I have a pair of those from last year which I adore!).
These are really pretty - colour bounces off them and they would pretty much go with anything.
For me though and as I walk everywhere comfort and style are the main things. I didn't want to look like a granny in 'sensible' beige sandals (no offence to Grannies intended - we love you all! :))
I used to always carry socks and trainers around everywhere with me when I wore sandals for when my feet would end up cut to ribbons and blistered.
This made summer clothing a real hassle as I'd need to wear something that looked OK with sandals or with trainers - very limiting!
I really want to try out the toe post originals as I cannot wear flip flops but I might be able to get away with a toe post in that style.
I am kicking myself for not ordering some in Old Lizard Red from last year's styles as that is the colour of my first pair and they are just gorgeous!
Just one other thing to note is if you love your Tevas always check back on the styles they offer as they change each year.
I know I will be back later this year and without question next year too to see what new styles and colours they have.
Thanks Teva, me and my feet love you!!
