Best pair of footwear I've ever purchased!!!

By RyGuy

from Portland, OR

About Me Alternative, Casual, Hipster, Trendy

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Breathes Well
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Arch Support
  • Lightweight
  • Stylish

Cons

  • Plastic Connectors Rub

Best Uses

  • At The Beach
  • Casual Wear
  • Going Out
  • Outdoors
  • Travel

I bought these in January '15 after having owned the Teva Riva eVent hiking shoes (I love those, too) and decided to try them out. They felt amazing right out of the box and feel PERFECT after 4 months of wearing them!
I bought the Monaco Blue/Yellow when it was still available, and it goes with everything I own. Very stylish and versatile.
These are by far the most comfortable pair of footwear I've ever bought. I wear them all the time. Though Teva says these are a D-width, they are comfortable for a guy with EE-width feet. Nice adjustments.
My only complaint is that if you don't get the toe strap adjusted perfectly, the plastic connector triangle will rub on your pinkie toe and cause blisters. I recommend undoing all the straps, putting your arch over the arch support, and when you close the toe strap, point your toes back towards yourself. Then close the ankle strap where it is snug, but not tight.
The insole material can take some getting used to. It's like it scrubs your calluses off every time you wear them!
I will definitely buy more pairs in the future! Thank you, Teva!

  • Q:

    Is this product able to be used in the activities category? I will be using this sandal in all types of ways and I would like to know how well this sandal can hold up to a challenge. I will be running around in a grassy field playing ultimate Frisbee and stuff like that as well as hiking and white water rafting in the mountains of Georgia. How would these hold up?

    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?
    Asked on 6/11/2013 by Mud Doping Scandal from Houston, TX

    1 answer

    • 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:

    How does this sandal size please ? I'm between a 9,5 in us size for most of my shoes.
    Asked on 6/10/2013 by Etienne from France

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      If you are in between sizes we recommend ordering 1/2 size up in this style.

  • Original Universal

    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?
    Asked on 6/8/2013 by suz from Wilmington, DE

    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.
