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.

No comparison to the Leather 2. Poor sole grip, thinner straps, less comfortable. What a disappointment!

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 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.

Not rugged. Should have listened to the previous reviews. Bought a similar pair many years ago that lasted forever; these seem almost flimsy. They do not appear to be made to last.

I found the toe much narrower than last year. I need a wide toe area and this was, clearly, redesigned and cannot accommodate my feet. My toes fall over the side of the shoe no matter how I adjust the top strap. Disappointing as I really enjoyed last year's style.

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.

These are my go-to sandals for everyday wear. On my third pair. The quality is more or less the same for the new ones that I just received. They fit my long, slightly narrow heel and slightly wide forefoot well, and when they get wet, the leather parts dry overnight after I set them in front of a fan.

My last pair of Tevas lasted 11 years and I hope for the same with these! They fit very well (and I have wide feet). Seem sturdy and are very comfortable. My only complaint is that with the black ones, the velcro area collects dust and threads immediately (and shows up more.) Not sure what they could do to improve this, but everything else seems fine!

I tried these sandals even though the reviews were mixed. I have a pair of Teva Terra Fi 3 sandals which I love and wish were made in solid black or better yet brown. However the reviews were correct, there sandals have very little arch support. You can adjust the front strap as there is no elastic underneath.

These are the best. Actually the second pair. The first pair my wife wore so much she needed to get another. Comfortable -- can go from jeans to shorts to skirts and from beach, to town, to hiking with ease - so she tells me! and I've seen her do it.

I've been a fan of Pretty Rugged for years. My last pair lasted three years. It's true that there's less leather in this latest version. However, I think it's still a terrific sandal. It's still well made and very comfortable. Easy to wear, right out of the box. I appreciate the simple design (I'm not a big fan of overly strappy sandals). This version is also nicer looking, not as clunky.

I've been wearing this sandal for years and have finally worn out another pair. There are some things that should not be improved on and like the '65 Mustang, this is one of them. The sandal, though true to size, feels cheap compared to the 2005 version, the straps light, and the arch support is aggressive and unforgiving. My bottom of my left foot began to ache unbearably after wearing the sandal in my house for one day -- I can't imagine how I would feel if I had taken the shoe on vacation without a trial run first, as I did with the 2005 version. So I returned the shoe. Teva, bring the old sandal back!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Teva ruined this once-great sandal. I finally found a sandal that I loved and had been wearing the pretty rugged sandals for years. Now Teva has changed them and they are inferior to the original. Please bring back my original sandals, or let me know where I can get a pair! I'm really upset that I cannot get them. They were perfect...past tense.

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.

Tevas are rugged, fairly waterproof and built for all-day walking comfort. That's what I was looking for, but with a bit more style. I haven't had other luck in finding other black sandals to replace my Rockports of almost the same style. Neither are that fashionable but I'm into all day comfort for traveling and walking around and these work just fine. They're even washable.
