Thank you for your feedback.
Recalling how comfortable these were, I purchased what has to be my fifth pair and started wearing them all the time.
Also, this pair fit as expected because I bough my last pair at a store and knew my size.
Weather is getting better now so i wore them a couple of times when i notice a chunk of the sole were you step came out!

    Size: 11 D(M) USColor: Wavy Trail Red/Orange Verified Purchase
    If you only want your heal to be 1/2" from the back edge, don't go with a size up if you are a half-size shoe. I usually wear 10.5 in Nike brand shoes. I bought the Size 11 which left an inch from heel to back edge and 1.5 inch from toe to front. I re-ordered the Size 10 and it's a perfect fit. There are a total of three straps. Across the front portion of the foot, over the foot and also one to position your heel (back strap). You can completely adjust them for a great fit.

    Size: 11 D(M) USColor: Pueblo Brown Verified Purchase
    I got in one shipment all in size mens size 11:

    Teva Obern 11
    Teva Toachi 11
    Teva Katavi 11
    Teva Hurricane 11

    Hurricane - these are very nice and highly adjustable because of the way the heel and mid-foot strapping integrates together. This was only true for the Hurricanes. It was possible to get them to fit quite comfortably, in spite of the material looking like it might be harsh, because of the way these can be adjusted for fit - and because the heel strap can ride very low on the heel vs. on the ankle.

    One thing I did not like in the Hurricanes was the velcro running all the way down to the sole of the shoe. For me, velcro picks up lint and fluff all the time and having that huge amount of excess ‘hook’ portion of velcro is not a good thing. I am certain that after a short time that would be just a mass of stuff picked up and stuck to the ‘hook’ velcro segment that is left exposed.

    I found, however, that for me the Katavi were more comfortable than the Hurricanes because of the extra strap padding and the mesh and padded panels. Because I don’t need them for water, the Katavi made better sense. There was virtually no exposed velcro for them when they were adjusted to fit me - another plus.

    Hurricane 10 1/2 oz 295g (single mens 11)

    Here are the differences and comparisons of the various sandals (see photos):

    Weight of single sandal (size 11):

    Obern 383g (13 1/2oz)
    Toachi 343g (12oz)
    Katavi 308g (10 3/4oz)
    Hurricane 295g (10 1/2oz)

    Note that that the Katavi and Hurricane XLT weigh almost exactly the same, even though the Hurricane is billed as ultra-light and the Katavi not advertised as such so much by Teva.

    Size: 13 D(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    This is the first pair of Teva Hurricanes I've owned, but not my first Tevas, and I absolutely love them. I normally wear a size 12.5, but since these don't come in half sizes, I ordered a 13. The 13 gives me an extra 1/4" or so on the heels and toes, which I prefer, but some may like them a bit more snug.

    The straps are high quality and feel very strong; however, it does take a little time and fiddling to get them adjusted to your foot. Once they are adjusted, they are quite comfy. The velco is very strong and sticky, but only time will tell how well it holds up. The soles are firm, yet flexible, and provide a fair amount of arch support. The tread on the soles it surprisingly resilient; I spent a couple days fishing in them, and they provide great traction even on wet concrete boat ramps.

    One note: they do require a little break-in time to get your feet accustomed to them, especially if you're new to wearing sandals. I had a couple spots that were starting to rub a bit sore (this was after ~8 continuous hours of wear), but with some additional adjustment and more time in them, the problem resolved itself.

    Overall this is a great shoe that serves its purpose whether you are on the trail, in the water, or even just walking the dog. I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time in them.

    I've been wearing Teva's since the early 90s when they were the standard issue of every whitewater rafter and kayaker. I have since discovered myriad other excellent applications for this simple, durable and versatile footwear and I wear them year-round (even in snow). I have a nice "Teva tan" to prove it!

    The Teva sandal is fundamentally an ageless footwear design, possibly one of the earliest known to humankind, which has just been re-worked with modern high-tech materials and ergonomic engineering. I am practically a "barefooter" in my daily life, meaning I don't prefer to have my feet confined in shoes, where they invariably get warm, sweaty, incubate fungus and bacteria and produce odours. And yet, being barefoot all of the time is not safe, practical, sanitary, or lawful in some places. So Teva sandals are the next best alternative! They allow air circulation and freedom from confinement, and protect the soles of your feet from direct contact with sharp objects, filth, contamination, and endless unknowns.

    What's high tech about it? High strength NYLON WEBBING (which could bear your body weight before breaking), VELCRO FASTENERS (and in some models, Fastex buckles), the comfortable SHAPED FOOTBED with arch support made of special ANTI-MICROBIAL RUBBER, and the nice SPLIT SOLE design with TREAD pattern. Bargain variants of river sandals (Teva clones) may use cheap webbing that will fray or break under load, bad fasteners that make it inconvenient to just slip on and off quickly, a bad footbed can make your feet ache, and without the micro-ban zinc the porous rubber will swell with colonies of bacteria from your feet making the sandals stink egregiously.
