    Love these sandals!

    By Andrew

    from Brooklyn, NY

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Durable
    • Stylish

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Daily Use

      Despite the taboo in NYC, I wear these as my daily shoes in the warmer months.

      I wear them to work and enjoy comfort every day.

      I also love the colorway and the overall look. It's very hiking-casual, in a good way. I feel more relaxed throughout my day, when I'm wearing them.

          I am a long time owner of the Teva Universal style having bought my first pair in 1993, and still have my 1995 pair. I am pleased that Teva brought back this style but disappointed with two features of the new Universals. First, is the omission of the adjustable rear strap; that allowed the wearer to position his foot arch exactly on the footbed arch support. Second is the very soft and spongy foam footbed on the new Universal. I now feel every pebble through the sole; it is a bit like wearing bedroom slippers outside. The original Universals had a much firmer, almost hard footbed which I prefer.
          Still, it is a move in the right direction by Teva to return to the minimal strapping of this style.

          • 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?

            • 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?

            • 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.
