The Men's Omnium Leather sport sandal offers the same qualities as the traditional Omnium but with the added benefit of durable waterproof full-grain leather. The Omnium Leather is a great shoe for travel, light duty off-road adventures, and will hold well in amphibious environments, but is not intended for extended forays in the water.
Teva's Omnium hiking shoe brings the best of both worlds. This part-sandal, part-shoe hybrid has the light weight and breathability of a sandal, along with the added foot protection of a shoe. It also features three points of adjustability for enhanced fit and comfort.See all Product description

Top Customer Reviews
Much has been said about the sole delaminating. Teva has taken responsibility for this. When the sole fell off my Omniums Teva sent me a free replacement pair---even though my sandals were four years old and beaten up by lots of hard use! (If the sole hadn't fallen off they would have lasted 5 or 6 years of constant use.) Their customer service is very good. I'm told that the glue problem has been corrected.
THE BAD: Don't expect the comfort of a running shoe. There is virtually no arch support. The insole seems soft at first but it's actually a lot harder than a running shoe. This is not a shoe for walking on pavement all day. I'm going to put an insole in my replacement pair.
These are NOT a water shoe!!! "Can be worn in the water" does NOT mean "waterproof"! The fabric and neoprene parts absorb and hold buckets of water. You would NOT want to have these as your only shoe on a multi-day canoe or kayak trip, because they are VERY slow drying. The one time I got them wet it took them 48 hours to dry. On a long trip you would end up with continually wet feet, which in some seasons could be a safety issue.
Comparing the Omnium to the Churn, the Churn will dry faster but the Omnium will be more durable and rugged. The Churn feels softer inside but does support the foot as well as the Omnium.
SIZING: I advise ordering a half to a full size larger than your regular shoe size.
Bottom line: I love my Omniums. They are very versatile. But you do have to respect their limitations and not expect them to be a water shoe or a long-distance walking shoe. I think they could become a long-distance walking shoe if Teva made the insole softer and gave it an arch support. They could be a water shoe if made of a different material that doesn't absorb water.
I saw they went on sale and purchased two colors and GLAD I DID.
I have high FLAT FEET and ankle instability and that was a major concern for me.
I always have to wear my custom innersoles but not with these.
I put them on right out the box and went for a walk and felt very comfotable and well ballanced.
I purchased my size 9 /M and am thrilled with the fit,.
No arch pain or foot fatigue, mind you I had them on for A 2 hour walk.
They appear and feel very well made. I also wore them in the rain and they dried quickly infront of my a/c.
The other color has the same results.. I'll update this if I feel or see any changes but for now.
I'M THRILLED WITH THEM
Oh, the buckle is well made although, I didn't have to make any adjustments at all.
