It’s been 30 years since a young Grand Canyon river guide changed the footwear game forever by inventing the very first sport sandal: a nylon ankle strap attached to a sturdy flip flop which he started selling from the back of his van. It was an amphibious shoe that held up just as well on slippery riverbeds as it did trekking through new cities (or running through an airport). That shoe design? It was the very first product to come from Teva—and we’re proud to say we’ve stayed true to the Original.
For Spring 2014, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re reintroducing the Original Sandal with the same webbing sport sandal design, revamped with nostalgic prints and classic colors, while also debuting new performance sandals and shoes that hold up to whatever you put them through: obstacle races, white-water rafting, iced coffee runs or even long days at Bonnaroo. It’s a nod to the past with a look to the future—the best stories come from both. So as we get ready to tell our next one, here’s a look at the heritage of a true Original:
