        Comments about Original Sandal:

        This is my 4th pair of Teva sandals (2x Mush, 1x Terra Fi) but my very first pair of Original.

        The look of these sandals caught my eye because I love flip flops and liked the ankle strap different than my Terra Fi.

        The color looks great but it was not my color of choice, I wanted all green. I think this was perhaps some clearance or something because UNFORTUNATELY now the choice of colors is too limited. I guess my pair now belongs to some sort of "limited" collection.

        Currently they all seem to offer only black (or dark) soles which is not very comfortable in the tropics with the scorching sun.

        I cannot currently attest regarding durability because I have only worn it for a few days and not for constant walking. But like I said, I own 4 pairs now and the other three have been in a lot of use for several years. The Terra Fi sole did come off partially but I sent it (locally) for repair and is now in active use again. I expect these ones to last and who knows, if the whole-green model reappears I might even buy it.

        not what I hoped for

              Comments about Original Sandal:

              I bought these HOPING they would be compariable to the originals I lost some 20 yrs ago, but not at all. First the right sandal toe strap cuts into my foot. Second the sole is thinner than the original. Third the ankle strap isn't as robust as the original, its thinner and the velcro doesnt hold too well with just normal walking. The originals were confident inspiring, these replicas are far short from that bar. I'll keep them for lounging about but for serious outdoor use, look else were. Sorry Teva, cant say its the same except for the color

              Need some adjustments

                    Comments about Original Sandal:

                    This particular model of the Teva Originals seem smaller that the Teva Originals I purchased four years ago. The back/heel straps have a simpler design but the thong strap is tight and the soles seem narrower. I thought that I was sent a womens size by mistake but both the box and sandal straps had mens size 9 printed on them. I really like these sandals since they're flip flops without the flipping and flopping but I hope that Teva make some tweaks to next years model.

                        A:

                        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.

                      Q:

                      What is the 'drop' on these shoes? This is the difference in height between the heel and the toe. Thanks!
