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 Original Universal is as valuable today as it was on those first days on the river.

      perfect classic teva

      By jules

      from lewisboro, new york

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Light
      • Sturdy

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Everyday Summer Use
        • Light walking

        These are the perfect summer sandal when flip flops won't cut it. I have larger feet that are narrow, anywhere from a women's 9.5-11 and I ordered a 10 and they are perfect (although the ankle strap is slightly on the long side). My favourite sandals!

        Super cute and functional

        By oweign

        from Boston, MA

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Buy these, they are so freaking cute!

              Pros:

              I was afraid the foamy bottom was going to be too thick, because I don't want height, but it's probably 3/4 of an inch thick near the heel, which is not noticeable when walking.

              I would describe this color as watermelon (coral works too) and I love it! The color is true to the picture.

              There is no scratching from the velcro, which is super strong by the way.

              Buy your normal size. I usually wear an 11, but sometimes a 10. I got a size 11 and it's a perfect fit with some room at the edge for my toes.

              Cons:

              I am afraid to test them in water, rain, or sand yet, because they are so pretty and I don't want them to get ruined!

              • Q:

                I'm going on a hiking trip and they recommended getting sandles for day use that is comfortable to walk in and could get wet from stream crossing. Is this a good shoe for this?

                  A:

                  Most stains can be removed using a "magic eraser", which is normally used for household cleaning, and water. You can also use a mile anti-bacterial soap and a soft bristled brush for cleaning.

              • Q:

                Do the women's shoes fit loose and can they be adjusted if they are loose? I have a very narrow foot and very high arch and would like to know how they fit.I have heard they are very comfy and would love to know if they would work for me because flip flops and sandals dont work AT ALL!!!!!!

                  These are adjustable in front of the ankle and at the toe area and should fit snug.

                  All of our men's product comes in a standard D width. However, the straps are adjustable so they can accommodate to a wider foot.

                I have a pair from when they first came out. I like them because I have narrow feet. Can I still get them in narrow so I don't look like I'm wearing boats? OR can I replace the straps?

                  This style runs true to size. If you are in between sizes, we would recommend ordering a 1/2 size up.

                Q:

                Help. I have worn Tevas for Y E A R S. Now I need another pair and I don't think you make the model I like any more. I want the strapping system of the Hurricane XLT but in leather with a leather or microfiber footbed. And one that can stand up to water, too. I know I am asking a lot but my old Tevas did all that! Please recommend an available style for me. Thanks, Long Time Teva Fan

                  Hi! Thank you for your Teva support. Unfortunately we do not have a current sport sandal style that features a leather footbed. The Tirra leather and the Neota are our available leather styles, and they can handle getting wet. Their soft EVA footbeds are comfortable, durable and easy to clean. Please feel free to contact one of our experts at 800-367-8382 for personalized recommendations.
