I love these sandals! They're super comfy and they stay in place on my feet. They're great for hiking and kayaking but also for just hanging out. They're easy to clean and you can wear them with socks when it's chilly. Love them!

Great!

Pros

      Best Uses

        I wear these for a lot of walking, and to the pool. I knew that Teva's generally ran big, so I went ahead and ordered a size down from my normal size. Also, I used the foot measurement/ conversion chart that the site offers for sizing your foot. Overall, I love the product. A lot lighter and better for walking around than many other sport sandals.

          This is my first pair of Teva sandals. I really like them, they're comfortable and look really cute. I do wish that i could slip them on and off without having to pull the velcro strap every time. But maybe that's because this is a brand new pair and will loosen up a little with use. I also wish that the front strap went a little bit further down my toes and covered some more of the toes. But that's just my preference; these sandals have been around for so long and loved by its customers. Nevertheless, I love these sandals and I am really enjoying wearing them this summer :D

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              We recommend ordering up if between sizes in our flip flops. This can vary from one person to the next. For example, if you have short toes, you may want to order down.

            How do you clean the Original Universal sandals? Do the white ones stain easily?

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              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!!!!!!
