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.

Nearly 30 years ago, a Grand Canyon river guide forever changed the way people experienced the outdoors. By blending the best parts of shoes and sandals, he created the world's first Sport Sandal. Today, we honor that heritage by reintroducing one of Teva's very first products - the Original Universal. Featuring the traditional nylon webbing, a contoured EVA topsole and a durable rubber outsole, the Original Universal is as valuable today as it was on those first days on the river.

    Color Name: Lunar Rock/BlackSize Name: 10 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    SIZING: I wear a 10 1/2 US mens regular width shoe. I initially ordered an 11 in the Teva Original based on prior reviews, DO NOT size up from your shoe size! The 11's were an extra inch past my big toe. I returned the sandals for size 10's and they fit perfect! The size 10 sandal measures right at 11.5 inches from toe-tip to heel. Hope that helps.

    As for the sandals, they look great and feel good. I haven't broke them in yet and cannot make claim to durability yet, but they seem to be made well and I'm 100% satisfied so far. I bought the "lunar rock" colored ones and they are more of a silver grey (the pic looks white...).

    Hope that helps!

    After years of trying to replace his favorite Tevas, my husband spotted these Original Universal Tevas on Amazon. Pleased to see the traditional design reintroduced, he bought them without hesitation. The sandals do not disappoint. Unlike some overly engineered Tevas, he finds these sandals comfortable with their flexible soles, easy to adjust with their Velcro straps, easy to clean with their relatively smooth treads, and quick to dry with their light nylon webbing. And although these original Tevas may not be the newest in sport-sandal innovation, they are, as my husband remarks, "like finding an old friend."

    Yeah, I was wearing these exact same sandals 15-20 years ago and I love them even more now than I did then. They look amazing, feel amazing, and I'm glad they're for sale again. I never liked many of the post-1999 Teva models. They don't feel good on the foot. Anyhow, I don't want to turn this into a gushy review but I'll always be a lifelong Teva afficionado, and wearer. And, I never wear them with socks. Big no-no.

    If anyone from the Teva corporation is reading this, please oh please bring back the Teva Alp sandal with the thin straps and heel cage...I will pay $250 per pair if they were ever for sale again. I still have the ones I bought in the late 90s and they're still in one piece.

    These are nice looking, and they take me back to my high school days. They are relatively comfortable, but I'm annoyed that the back strap is NOT adjustable. When used as true river shoes, the stretching and sliding of the sandal is hard to control without the ability to adjust the back strap. As a consequence, even a person with tough feet like mine is bound to get some sore spots. I'm frustrated by that, and I fear that I may have to buy some OTHER brand to use a true river shoes or buy some of the very unsightly versions of Tevas.

    Weird but fits better than almost any of the fancier Teva models, except for the Zilch. As many probs people had with chaffing, personally it was the BEST of all Teva models for ME. I went so far as to order one from the UK just to get a Zilch in Midnight Blue...this Original Universal, id say, is a runner up for COMFORT and fit. The straps are really smooth and flexible, comfortable, and kind of glide on easier, that is, easier on the skin. Just hate them wet and in sand. Same for any footwear, pretty much!!!

    Color Name: Blue/YellowSize Name: 8 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    I have wider feet than what fits a woman's regular shoe and often those shoes don't come in a woman's wide. I normally wear a 10 women's. These fit great in a men's 8 and have several very nice basic colors. This solved the problem under women reviews of the strap not fitting all the way acrossed the top Velcro. This summer it's the only saddle I've been wearing due to a pending knee replacement and the need for a flat shoe. I enjoy them very much.

    These are comfortable, lightweight sandals that are good for casual use. I use them around the yard, camping, and for the quick trip to the grocery store. I wouldn't try wearing them all day or going hiking. I would describe them as suburban convenience shoes, but not serious outdoor wear. Also, a quick note about sizing. They are sized a bit small. I wear a men's 10 1/2, and the size 11 Teva are just barely large enough for me.

    ...and after owning a pair of Tevas that finally bit the dust, I needed a new pair. I decided on these as I did not need the ones with the crazy amounts of tread, just something to protect my feet while hopping around on rocks and walking on trails at the river. The fit well, are comfortable, and priced appropriately. Can't wait to get more use out of them!
