Spurred on by your other reviews I decided to add my own . My Tevas are also on their third year and still going strong. Mainly I wear them on holiday where we do a lot of walking over very rough and stoney terrain, the great thing about these sandals is that they have a cushioned sole which means walking over rocks and stones is not a problem. They can also be hosed down and come up looking fine. I rub a bit of tea tree oil in the soles every year , which makes the soles smell fresh ! I have just bought another slightly more " fashion" pair which I can wear in the evenings , but still are comfortable and great for a midnight ramble across fields on our way home !!!
