I purchased these to replace the Teva Pretty Rugged sandals I bought in 2005. I wore those until they fell apart and I wanted another pair. I was very disappointed. The old Pretty Rugged model had wider, cushioned straps of good quality leather and a very comfortable footbed with good arch support. The new version is just a regular Teva with some thin cheap leather instead of nylon straps. This would be fine if that's what you were looking for but the price is ridiculous. A slightly lower price would be more appropriate. I was blinded by the name, believing they were the same high quality, so it's my fault for not looking more closely at the picture. I just don't want other Pretty Rugged fans to be fooled!

I bought this shoe last year, which I loved so I really wanted a new pair. So disappointed in the new ones. The strap across the toe is set way back and is very narrow. Unless the straps are very tight, my foot slid forward. The footbed is not as comfortable either. I'm sending them back.

Pretty rugged? I'd say pretty junkie. These sandals broke the first time I wore them. The strap pulled out of the footbed.

Sandals are true to size, rugged, and comfortable. Because you can adjust the width at the ankle and at the bridge of your toes, the fit can be well- tailored to each foot. I walk miles every day and have not been at all disappointed by these well constructed sandals. The picture shows the look and the color of the sandals precisely.

I'm very satisfied with my new sandals. They look good and are very comfortable. I was able to wear them all day without breaking them in. Also, I think the guarantee and return policy are amazing, in case I ever need to use them.

I had the older style for several years, and this newer model looks even nicer, since the outside sole doesn't look as rugged. It is very cushiony and has a good arch.

These Tevas are the single most comfortable shoes ever. The Rugged 2 style was very comfortable as well. I like lining better on these shoe as they do not need washing as much.

These shoes fit and looked fine, but I bought them for hiking in the mountains and for that they were not sturdy enough. Although they were comfortable and gave me good footing, they began to tear on the fifth day of my hike and I had to stop using them. They are probably fine for house wear, but I would not recommend them for rugged hiking.

Had a very old version of this Teva that had great padding around the straps. This rugged leather 3 is narrow and not very well padded.

I understand what the people who were disappointed are saying, especially on day 1 when I saw that there was no longer a leather footbed. But...I really put a lot of miles on my sandals, and wore out several earlier models over the years. In fact, I was always sad at how quickly the footbeds wore out to a point that the sandals were no longer really robust any more. These Pretty Rugged 3 are truly more rugged, and I have to say that the footbed is comfortable and supportive, and doesn't feel like junkier plastic sandals at all. Because of it, the sandal has survived much longer than earlier models. Durability is much better, and cushioning is great. I can't say I have seen that much change in the strap position and thickness, except that the neoprene is much less obtrusive. Although I didn't feel this way on day 1, now I can honestly say I like these better because they are remaining highly functional. Given the price of these sandals, you want to get not weeks, but years, of use...and with these I am!

Brands I'd also recommend: I've tried other high-quality brands and, for me, Teva is the best for this kind of sandal.

I have wide feet and wear a size 6. Only Teva makes a comfortable walking/hiking sandal with enough adjustment tabs to fit my feet. I love the leather, and the new sole lining is so much better than the old plastic one.

4 stars with a big but...they are not the Teva's of the past. Like many reviewers, I bought these to replace to previous pair. I've been wearing these for years. They are not the same quality shoe - they absolutely do not withstand the same wear and tear. They are good shoes - if you have nothing to compare them to, they are probably fine - but they are not the Teva's of the past.

I purchased these to replace Teva Pretty Rugged Leather 2. Not similar in fit or feel. Too bad. Gone is the comfy padded leather footbed replaced with a very uncomfortable ridged synthetic footbed. And the arch support is very poor compared to #2. It says it is made of leather but it does not feel like leather. Finally, the little leather triangle under the plastic triangle join at the toes is gone or inadequate in #3. This piece protected the littlest toes from gouging.

This would have been my third pair of Pretty Rugged leather sandals, but am very displeased with the design change. The rippled upper sole that comes in contact with the foot is very uncomfortable. I liked the smooth surface of the previous design.

Brands I'd also recommend: Not this product because of design change

These shoes were a huge disappointment to me. I've been wearing Teva sandals since 1988 or so. I have loved every pair , and I have owned at least ten pairs. My last pair of Pretty Rugged sandals is the third pair that I have owned. I still wear them, they are still comfortable, but they look a bit shabby since I purchased them in 2006. I bought the Pretty Rugged 3 from Zappos. They are terribly uncomfortable. Teva has eliminated almost all of the cushioning under the leather straps. The leather is thin in thickness and thin in width. Consequently they rub against my big toes making them uncomfortable for any activity except sitting. This is a major design flaw. I wish I could wear them.

I purchased this sandal because it was the most similar to my current Teva's which need to be replaced. These sandals were so incredibly uncomfortable. There is no lining on the interior of the straps. They are stiff, itchy, and pokey. They felt uncomfortable before I even finished putting them on. I returned them immediately. I would recommend not purchasing this sandal.

I will be replacing my Pretty Rugged 3's with the same model because they are comfortable, reasonably waterproof and more durable than the 2's because of their redesigned insoles. I had the earlier models over the years and, nice as the suede leather insoles used to be when new, they wore out faster and of course stayed clammy when wet. The new insole structure is synthetic, appears cheaper but is actually engineered to provide good support, feels soft on my very sensitive feet, and dries immediately. Heavy use has not aged that part of the sandal at all. My 3's have taken several years of hard use and are still very wearable, but I can see that the soles are less springy than they used to be, so within a year I will want a new pair, as I sometimes go running in them.

These are the Tevas that are a little dressier than the ones I wear around water or rain. The sole and straps have a nap which is a nice soft comfort to these old weary feet.

I've been a Zappos customer since the beginning. Their customer service is faultless. But today we are talking about Teva. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999. Someone told me about Teva, and they are about all I wear. They give great support, are very cofortable, and never wear out.
