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 our very first products – the Original Universal. Featuring our traditional nylon webbing, a contoured EVA topsole and a durable rubber outsole, the Men's Original Universal is as valuable today as it was on those first days on the river.

First off, I don't want to take them off my feet! They feel sturdy and the colors are spot on. However they are so long! I order the 7 and I have relatively wide feet. The width was perfect, but I have a full inch of space between my big toe and the top of the shoe. It doesn't feel uncomfortable but it doesn't look appealing. I'd order a soze down.

Got my first Tevas years ago. After a year or two they started to stink, so got a new pair. I love them because they're soft underfoot, very good for walking. The two most recent pairs started to stink almost immediately. I literally wash them after every wearing, and they're still funky. Other sandals, including Chacos, don't get this way as fast. Because of the comfort, I haven't given them up.

        Comments about Teva Original Universal (Women's):

        I got these in OLD Lizard Red and they are so adorable! I adore the colour!
        I walk a lot, a heck of a lot compared to most folk I know. I walk over a mile to work and back each day in all English weather where you can have sunshine, heat and then rain and hail in one day.
        I also have wide feet where my big toe joint is and high arches and this summer I have tried around 25 different styles and makes of sandal hoping that just one..just one might get me through walking to work but then also spending a day at work without blisters or incredible pain before lunchtime or maybe before I leave work. I always took a change of shoes with me and that involved a change of clothing to not look totally stupid - a summer dress and comfy snow boots doesn't look great in 30 degrees!
        This has all changed - I no longer have to carry a change of footwear nor clothing if it's going to be hot in the morning and thunderstorms in the evening.
        I had to break these in a little bit - dead easy and quick. I soaked the front straps (the ankle straps are fine on me) and wore big thick socks around the house to stretch them (this can be used for any shoe of any material too).
        Plus when I wear them I keep the ankle loose-ish so my foot can go a little forward to avoid my pinky having an argument with the ring that holds the strap.
        The foot bed feels odd to begin with with the bumps on it but I can spend a whole day walking miles in these and have no pain at all by the end of the day.
        I have never ever EVER yet had a pair of sandals that I can wear and walk in with no pain or blisters at all and I am 46 years old!!

        They look fantastic with blue jeans turned up for summer too.

        Soon after I got these a friend told me that they have become the most trendy festival footwear this year. I had no idea I would end up trendy! Comfort was my main issue but these look so great that I was literally dying that they would work out for what I needed and they have! 100%!!!

        Thank you Teva! :) You have made my summer enjoyable instead of painful and covered in plasters or giving in and wearing trainers (sneakers) for the first time in my life!

        Now I have the dilemma whether to try the toe post originals..I love the original suede braid and the lizard red...
        I can't wear toe posts but with the ankle straps it might just work..

                Comments about Teva Original Universal (Women's):

                this is my second pair of tevas. My first pair was bought in the early 90s and were recently used on a camping trip when i decided it was time for a new pair. I didnt wear them for all of those years but could still use them 20 years later when needed. The velcro closure eventually didnt stay closed well and the rubber was starting to deteriorate but what do u expect after 20 years? Such a functionalshoe (i can wear with socks on camping trip when the nights are cool) or without as a regular sandal. They can go in the water much better than flip flops and dont pull off, needed in a rocky bottom sea shore area. Was thrilled the same shoe (different colors) was still availavle after all these years.
