I was on the hunt for a pair of waterproof active shoes that could be worn with khakis, jeans, or shorts without looking out of place on a moderate budget. These looked great to me but I read numerous reviews on Amazon and elsewhere about how narrow fitting they are. I normally wear wide shoes so initially passed these up until the more I searched (both online and nearly every shoe store in the area) the more I realized there really wasn't anything else out there that fit the bill of what I wanted (waterproof, sneaker-look and fit, under $100).
I decided to go ahead and give these a try almost expecting I would be returning them due to ill fit. I normally wear an 11, but reading other reviews instructing to get a full size up I debated getting an 11.5 but finally went ahead and ordered a 12.
They fit perfectly! Not only do they fit perfectly but they are the most comfortable shoes I've owned in a while. No issues in width at all. I normally wear New Balance sneakers but recently moved to an old farmhouse in the country and should be spending much more time outdoors. I've found myself in a puddle/mud a few times in these already and can attest they are definitely waterproof!
These are great all day shoes that would be just as good on a hike as at work or at a restaurant. I am usually so picky with shoes and these were such a good price I went ahead and ordered a second pair for the future!
Following the advice of the majority of other reviews, I ordered a little larger than my normal size. I went with an 11 instead of 10.5 and they are big enough. I probably could have gone with the 10.5 and been fine. My issue with size was the width - I wish I had gotten the wide shoe. I usually get wide when available, but don't normally have discomfort with non-wide. These feel fine in walking, but I feel their restriction when sitting. However, I'll give them time to get broken in and they may be just fine.
So far, pleased with my purchase. Very happy to have paid >$40 for them.
First, they're more of a heavy trail shoe, then a hiking shoe, but the soles still seem rigid enough to do some light hiking. They're VERY comfortable and have lot's of cushioning, unlike the Merrell Moab Ventilators they'll likely replace in my closet. The Ventilators are more rigid and more of a true hiking shoe, but I find them very hot and uncomfortable, and they're not even waterproof. I guess I like that the Wapta is more flexible (note that I also own a pair of Moab Waterproof shoes, and unlike the Ventilator, I find them very comfortable.)
I find the sizing to be accurate and true to size, which I believe is unusual for Tevas. They are a little narrow, which is some of the reason I consider them more of a trail shoe, and this also fits the sneaker/soccer shoe look of the shoe. If anything, I'd say the length is slightly long, but I don't consider the length or the width to be inaccurate. My guess on the complaints for the narrow width is that people were expecting a roomy hiking shoe, instead of the more streamlined trail shoe they seem to be.
I purchased them in "black", but they actually use varying shades of charcoal, which I prefer.
Overall, I really like them a lot. They fit well, look good, they're very comfortable and hopefully waterproof. I'd recommend ordering your normal size, but if you have wide feet, you may want to pass on these. Just keep in mind that they're more of trail shoe, then a roomy hiking boot/shoe that's made to wear with heavy socks.
I was somewhat apprehensive regarding others' feedback on size but I went ahead and ordered my usual 10...
They fit perfectly and were so comfortable on the first wear... no break-in needed
I love that they are leather and waterproof... not sure how they'll fare in the washing machine though.
Feet do get hot so I only wear them if there's a good chance of rain
Even though they don't hurt at all, it's a relief to take them off on a hot day and put on my Tevaspheres... I look forward to wearing them in the dry winter season though.
The grey is great for pants and jacket too... very stylish yet understated... the lime green logo and sole adds that special je ne se quai in the city too
