Nearly 30 years ago, a Grand Canyon river guide forever changed the way people experienced the outdoors. By blending the best parts of shoes and sandals, he created the world’s first Sport Sandal. Today, we honor that heritage by reintroducing one of our very first products – the Original Universal. Featuring our traditional nylon webbing, a contoured EVA topsole and a durable rubber outsole, the Men's Original Universal is as valuable today as it was on those first days on the river.

    Comments about TEVA Original Universal:

    bought the Teva Universal sandals in the early 80's and still wearing the same pair right now. Have used them everywhere and in every situation with out thought and looking back there hasn't been any situation that they let me down. Hiking,rock climbing,beach use and general everyday use always reliable and comfortable and always hugged my feet securely. Best footwear I have ever used. The only problem after 30 years - the T cracked off Teva last week - so now it spells "eva" - is that telling me it lasts for eva??? Glad to see they are still available so looking forward to my next purchase!!!

    Better the first time around

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Everyday wear

        Comments about TEVA Original Universal:

        Love that you guys brought these back. Bought my first pair of these from Mark himself in Flagstaff AZ around 1985-6. He used to sell these out of the back of his car. He always had a couple garbage bags full of them...lol. Takes me back. Simple, light and effective. If you want a great all terrain sandal that's does what it needs to do minus the flash, these are the saddles for you! New school is not always better. Sometimes it was better the first time around. :-)

        Comments about TEVA Original Universal:

        I was turned on to this fine foot wear in the early 80's after asking a rafting guide who took us flawlessly down the arkansas running at a class 5.. He said he found these new sandals called Teva that were spectacular.. After I bought my 1st, 2nd, third fourth pair. i realized that I had them on my feet for almost everything except when ther was snow on the ground..Superb footwhere.. thanks for all the great times!

          Q:

          I have a narrow foot and would probably benefit from ordering the women's version if there's no other noticeable difference. What would the equivalent to a men's size 9 be?

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Other than the sizing and color options, there is no difference! If you wear a men's 9, then women's 11 is recommended.

          Q:

          I am wondering to things: first, I am purchasing a men's sandal because they are usually wider. My foot is an 81/2 women's, so what size do I purchase in a men's?
          How wide are the sandals?

          1 answer

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            You should order 2 sizes down in a men's style. Since this style is only available in whole sizes, a size 7 is recommended for you. Our men's styles are made in a "D" width.
