    When I first got the Teva's in the mail, and trying them on for the first time, I thought they might be a half size to small, and since they don't come in half sizes, I was considering going up a size, but I kept them and wore them around and once they got broken in, they fit great! They are super comfortable and really cute. I was concerned that my toes might slid off the end of them if I was hiking because I was worried they were to small, but I wore them hiking and my toes didn't go off the ends when I was walking down hills. I am very pleased with the product. I will get another pair in a different color for sure! Love my Teva's!

          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!!!!!!
