I refused even trying them on for a whole year as I though (from pictures online) that all Teva sandals are incredibly bulky. Finally, I gave in two weeks before our summer holiday as we may have to go on a few rougher paths and OMG! Game changer. I'm not even wearing anything else anymore. They actually look quite city-appropriate and it feels like I'm walking on a big, soft cloud. Best summer sandals investment ever.
