I owned my first pair of Tevas 25 years ago. I lived in them. My mother made fun of my "Jesus" shoes until I convinced her to get a pair. She wore them everyday after work to go for beach walks or hiking. We have both said over the years that the original Tevas were the best and wished they still made them. FINALLY our wishes came true!! Living in New Orleans, my sandals get a lot of wear. Festival season is upon us and I am now prepared to dance come rain or shine in my new "old" Tevas. I have worn Tevas over the years but none fit me the way these do. I am a true 7 1/2 but have always worn 8 as the arch fits better than sizing down to a 7. I got the black pair yesterday and almost slept in the last night but my husband asked me not to...now for the hard part-which other color do I want to order?

Not cute and not comfortable. Very clunky and manly looking and feel as if the straps would rub and cause blisters.

Love them. very comfortable. Only downfall I'd have to say is that the straps are too long. After pulling secure and fastening the velcro, I have almost 2" of strap at the ankle that dangles and catch on things. It's quite annoying, but to the defense of the shoe, I have tiny ankles and narrow feet...so maybe it's my fault?

Don't expect great arch support from this style. However, they are lightweight and very comfortable. For an all day hiking sandal, I would wear the Terra Fi for the arch support and treaded bottom, but these are great for casual everyday. The coral color is very pretty for the summer and I get a lot of complements on them.

I'd also recommend: Saucony

I've tried making Chacos work for me over the past 6 years (trying two different pairs at different times), but they've always hurt my feet. I finally realized it's because I have flat feet (possibly fallen arches) and their sandals feel like I have a hard ball under my foot. So with that being said, I have discovered that Tevas are perfect for me! The arch is just moderate so they don't hurt at all by the end of the day. Everyone has different needs for their feet (I'm only 31, but have had 6 pregnancies and I think they've taken a toll on me), so while one person may say "there's not enough arch support" another will rave about how great these are. The only breaking in I'm having to do is with the texture of the foot bed. It's sort of bumpy, so after the first few hours of wearing them the first day my feet felt a little rubbed raw. But on day two it's better. So I'm thinking you just have to wear the texture down a little bit. And the material on the sides did rub some soreness on my outside toes, but a band aid or moleskin for the sandal will take care of that. :)
