Comments about Original Sandal:

I am among the many who are happy to see the original back in production. I had a pair I got in '87, and wore them until they were tattered.
On the new pair, the right foot seems smaller than the left, and the ankle straps are a little too short, but for scrambling in and out of a boat, or on the river, they are still great.

    Comments about Original Sandal:

    Am wanting a new pair of these. I used to have a pair when they first came out a few years back. Mine lasted 8 years. By then the sole was worn smooth and the Velcro had long since stopped working...I held them with the rubber retainer rings the sandals used to come with.
    Right out of the box I wore mine to catch a bus. Worst possible day to wear them...had to cross a 4 lane street that was being repaved with really hot soft asphalt. I was so glad I had worn sandals with an ankle strap! Couldn't imagine trying to walk across 300 degree asphalt in flip flops. My feet sank in a bit with each step so my toes and the sides of my feet were closer than I wanted to the molten mess. By the time I hotstepped across I couldn't even touch the soles of my sandals. After they cooled and I picked off the bits of asphalt and rocks that stuck, they were still good as new. Full marks for durability.

      Comments about Original Sandal:

      All great designs come back in some form !
      I was involved in White Water Rescue for many where I learned off the Teva. They would stay on in all conditions. (The between the toe your model 1004004)
      I lived in Baja California for the last 20 years . They were my goto,water shoe daily !
      I had purchase several pair of the original Teva in the 80's. When they were no longer available I had them resoled /made new straps / I even had a shoe repair man put "topsider" soles on several pair( that I ha worn out) for use on boat decks . I kept 2 pair alive until 2011 . Now I can by new ones ! GREAT Thank You
      Doug

          These run true and we recommend ordering them in your true shoe size. If between sizes, we recommend ordering ½ size up. A size 11 would be recommended for you.
