This a great brand and last a long time , fits perfect and very comfortable!
They fit perfectly and they provide a good grip, important as it is the rainy season here in Cambodia at the moment.
These sandals are rugged, fit well and are contoured nicely for support.

Product Description

Teva is an authentic icon in the outdoor industry. Founded in the early 1980's by a Colorado River guide, Teva pioneered the sport-sandal category. For more than 20 years on rivers, in canyons, and across the trails of the great outdoors, athletes and enthusiasts have traveled the globe comfortably and confidently in Teva footwear. Providing positive contributions to the world in which we play is at the core of everything Teva stands for. The Teva name itself is a Hebrew word meaning "nature" and the hand logo is the Hopi symbol for "friendship" and "water." Teva supports the outdoor athletic lifestyle and remains committed to innovation in outdoor performance footwear, the platforms which carry enthusiasts beyond the offices of the day-to-day and onto the rivers, trails, and canyons of the next adventure.

Stay comfortable with the Teva Katavi Thong. This men's flip-flop features a suede and mesh upper. An antimicrobial EVA footbed keeps you supported, while a nylon arch shank offers stability. This Teva sandal has a rubber outsole for multi-terrain traction. A compression molded EVA midsole provides you with all-day comfort. If you can't give your feet a day off, at least treat them to the relaxed comfort of the Teva Katavi Thong!

    I love wearing flip flops, and here in California you can wear them for much of the year. Most flip flops--especially the drugstore cheapies-- offer little or no support and break down quickly. While the thin soles are comfortable for lounging around and short walks, you can't walk around in them all day.

    I've been on a quest for better quality thong type sandals that offer more of the support and cushioning that you would get out of an athletic or walking shoe. Cost is no object. I've had several, including the original Reef Fanning 'athletic'thong sandal, the new expensive Reef X-S-1 high tech sandal, Sperry Topsider Santa Cruz sandal, and this Teva Katavi Thong. Of all of them, the Tevas are the best. They offer the best combination of comfort, cushioning and support.

    The original Reef Fannings are nice sandals, but the forefoot sole area is too thin and wears out pretty quickly. It's easy to stub your toes, but the air cushion heel area holds up nicely. The Reef X-S-1 is expensive, and it has the same thin forefoot area under the ball of the foot and the toes. While the high tech running shoe trampoline heel is nice and cushiony, it is built up much more than the forefoot, making it feel like you're wearing a heel that's too high. The Sperry Topsider Santa Cruz is a nice, luxurious sandal with real leather trim at a fair price, but it has the opposite problem: it's very flat and could use a tad more heel cushioning. The forefoot thickness and cushioning is good, though the cushioning is somewhat firm. They also run big, and my feet tend to move around because the straps are so loose on the feet.

    The Teva Katavi is perfect. It's true to size, has ample cushioning, and the perfect ratio of forefoot and heel cushioning.

    I can be considered a Sandal expert. I have tried every type of sandal you could imagine I live in miami and I wear sandals everywhere. From Birkenstock to the cheap 1 dollar ones. Rarely wear shoes. I even have dress sandals. I got a farmers tan of the thong sandals on my feet. These Teva's at first felt nice on my feet. They have decent arch support, and are really comfortable, BUT they don't hold the moisture/sweat from your well. After a couple hours of using it felt like was walking on a slimy surface, disgusting. I wanted to give these a try because my favorite Sandals, Sperry Santa Cruz of all time always break around the 1 year mark. (They got a lot of usage)
    These Teva's look well made and if you can take the slippery feeling were you feet make contact, then go ahead and buy them, you will love them. I personally don't like the feeling, I tried to like these sandals, but after going on the boat deep sea fishing with them and little splashes of water would make me slip inside my sandal I couldn't take it anymore. The sandal grips the floor fine but not my feet. Compared to the Reef sandals these are a way more comfortable, but reef has good tread on the sole. The Sperry Santa Cruz is comfortable has excellent arch support, amazing sole that can be cleaned, and has great anti-moisture/sweat ridges on the sole. I don't know how well these Teva's are built or how long they last, but the Santa Cruz last 1-2 years before they break ALWAYS in the same spot, the thong to the sole joint. I have had 4 Santa Cruz Sandals in the past 7 years. I just ordered my 5th. I will keep the Teva as back-up sandals. My preference of sandals is as followed: Sperry Santa Cruz, Birkenstock, Teva, crocs, Reef, dollar store sandals. Hope this helps any future purchasers. Overall, Teva's aren't bad I just can't take that disgusting feeling of sweat with dirt on my feet. Again, if you don't mind or sweat buy them you'll love them like the other 5 stars.

    I read a review that said they are slippery when wet but figured I had a pair of older model tevas that were great and that must have been a fluke, well unfortunately these sandals are useless and hazardous to me on the rainy side of hawaii, or walking after the beach. when they get wet the top surface of them becomes very slippery and my foot is always sliding off of them and my legs get very sore with my toes trying to keep the sandals on. Also with the uneven terrain of lava, it makes is so easy to twist an ankle. Luckily I bought a pair of Spenco mens sandals because a freind raved about them... they were half the cost of these Tevas and very comfortable, durable and really hug the feet making them perfect for climbing down the cliff to the beach... these Tevas are too slippery to be safe taking them down a cliff trail.

    UPDATE AFTER TWO WEEKS WEARING: The bottom rubber is starting to peel off from the front edge and its about 3 inches back by now. My old pair did the same thing so I wore them without the 1/2 inch rubber tread after epoxy failed to keep it on. It is such a bumber because these are very comfortable sandals but I cant justify trying another pair unless these design issues are fixed.

    Teva makes a great Flip-Flop. I have always loved the Elixer. Unfortunately the Elixer went through many models, 1-5. By the 5th series it was very bulky and had HUGE treads. Not sure what purpose it served. Now Teva has brought back a "normal" Flip-Flop. It still has the great features: Good arch support and Microban anti-microbial protection. Love these "flippers".
