I really like these sandals. They are comfortable, offer great support for such a flat sandal, do well in water, and seem very durable. My only complaint is that I wish the back strap was adjustable. My foot slides back much more than I would like, and I wish I could tighten the back strap. If this one modification were made, they would be the perfect casual, summer sandal!
I've had my pair for at least 5 years and they still work great! I've used them as a casual sandal while walking around urban areas and hanging with friends but I've also done a decent amount of hiking in them. While they work as a chill hiking shoe I do think they are better for more casual wear because there isn't great traction on the bottom. The sole is starting to separate in the front on my pair but the sandals are over 5 years old and they've gotten a ton of use, so I'm not really disappointed. I would definitely recommend this sandal!
I have the sun and moon design. I love them, but they're difficult to wear with patterns so a plain pair was in order. I love these, they're my all summer sandal. Perfect for any outside event or activities.
I just ordered my sandals four days ago and I got them in the mail today! They are so adorable and so much cuter in person. They fit very true to size & width. I love the color and I can already tell how comfortable they are!! I love them!
I bought this because I was looking for a minimal and yet secure (not floppy) sandal. There is a bit of cushioning, but it's not too much. I usually wear a 10.5 and ordered an 11, but it was a tad too big; the straps went a bit beyond the soles, and the sandals were a tad too long. If my feet got wet then the sandals would get quite loose and slide around! As long as I'm dry though, they're good and the size isn't a big issue.
I also have been on the trails with these and would say that they do not have the greatest traction on smooth rocks, and rocks can get in (though getting them out isn't hard).
Travelling with them is easy because I can strap them to my bag if I'm wearing shoes.
Unfortunately, after my husband wore these for a several days he found he kept tripping because the sole was so flimsy. Unfortunately he had worn them outside so we couldn't return them. We ended up buying the terra-fi 4. Costs more, but much better.
I am way over 60 and have wide feet. Also, I love to swim. In Hawaii I wore my Teva's into the ocean to protect my feet from the coral, or anything sharp on the sea floor. The shoes liked the water, and the salt water didn't faze them, and I could easily swim while wearing them. They dried fast, and could be worn to walk downtown, to go out to dinner, or go to church on Sundays. I bought other styles and they didn't feel comfortable on my feet. S/N 6578 worked just fine for me. Perhaps the number is F3009C There are only two numbers on my sandals and I have had them about 20 years.
This is a review for those whose souls need a bit more support. I'm giving this great sandal a three only because my feet need a stronger support now than 50 years ago. I bought them out of nostalgia. I am sticking to my Teva Universal's with more stiffness in the soul. This original is too soft for me now and has more of a heel than I can enjoy.
Really wanted to keep this. Truly need a 7.5 size. Does not really fit in an 8, and 7 is too small. Too wide also. Toe area is far too wide for narrow feet. Also need an adjustable heel strap. Foot kept slipping back so when I walked my heel was hitting the back edge of the shoe - not comfortable. Please make half sizes, make a narrow, and add adjustable heel strap like you make in other Teva models.
I bought the sandals thinking they'd be good arch support shoes for me to wear on campus, but because the bottom is so rubbery/plasticy, they're uncomfortable and make my feet sweaty really fast. Then I have to squeak around campus and to all my classes. I had hoped these would be comparable to chacos (which I don't have a pair of), but I think the bottom of those are very different and I wish I had gone for a more fabric bottom instead of this.
Love these! Super comfortable, immediately went on a four day canoeing/camping trip and wore them the whole time swimming, walking around, scrambling up boulders etc. No blisters or breaking in required. The fact that they're super cute is just a bonus!
I have a pair of the original style sandals that is about 12 years old. I was pleased to see the "originals" were available. The style is great but the thickness is of lesser quality with minimal support. I am so disappointed and will be returning them
I wasn't expecting the comfort of these sandals to be anything to write a review about, but here I am..... lol. I don't think I've ever had a more comfortable pair of shoes. Great quality and super cute! Love these
These are my first pair of Tevas. They are so comfortable and I get compliments on them often! Can't wait to travel in these, as they are comfy and provide support. AND, I'll be buying more sandals in the future.
Easy to wear, lightweight, no bells and whistles. Great on water and on land. This color is surprisingly nice - a little summer fun but not too childish. Despite not having real treads, the material of the sole is great for gripping even on slippery rocks.
It is under the title "Original Tevas." I owned tevas in the 90s. These were not original. He material is great but there is a built in arch support that doesn't fit everyone's foot and isn't noted in the description. I would rather them not have an arch support and be flat. Also they have a heel rather than being zero degrees. I was unable to wear them due to the fixed arch built in the Teva.
I've worn these sandals ALL DAY, EVERY DAY for 4 months straight at summer camp. Put them on as I got out of bed in the morning, didn't take them off until I went to sleep at night. They've been in and out of the lake multiple times a day, covered in dirt, charcoal, mud, algae, boat slime, and Jello, and seen miles of hiking. After taking a beating for 4 months, they don't look new, but they don't look worn out either. The sandals molded to my feet, and my feet tanned in the pattern of the straps. Beyond the first week, I had no problems with rubbing/blistering, my feet felt adequately supported and protected, and the velcro stayed 100% effective. I constantly get compliments on the sun and moon pattern (as soon as I saw that pattern I knew which one I was ordering). The first week or two did involve some rubbing of the strap on my pinky toe, but they broke in quickly. Bottom line: these sandals hold up to a lot, support your feet all day long, and are the perfect adventure footwear. When this pair wears out, I'll buy another.
As I get older, flip flops are very uncomfortable and impractical for my life. Teva has given me a reason to wear sandals again. I have ordered two pairs and I absolutely love them. I am a college student so it is very convenient that I can quickly put them on and then walk out the door. I will definitely purchase more!
I used to wear these 20 something years ago and now they're back in style with my 14 year old. Glad they've changed the sole from just a flat surface to more of a molded foot bed. These are comfortable, lightweight, and affordable for a water/outdoor shoe.
