        ~ OMG ~ I've been river guiding for 30+ years, and know Teva is the original river sandal. I've seen all the latest outdoor sandals come and go, all the latest styles, I've even tried some. I've just purchased a pair of your original universal sandals and it was like meeting an old friend, I can't believe I've worn anything else, I know for the next 30 years I'll never wear anything else. Only problem is deciding which color and model I want for a second pair.
        ~~ TEVA ROCKS ~~ I'd like to tell everyone, got a sticker or 2??

        • 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.

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

          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.
