Draw a straight line, longer than your foot, on a piece of paper.Place the paper on a flat surface. Stand on the line with your heel and longest toe centered on the line. If measuring a child's foot, it may be easier to hold the paper up to their foot.Place a mark on the line at the tip of the longest toe and at the back of the heel.Repeat steps for the other foot.Measure the distance between the marks. Taking the larger of the two measurements, use the conversion chart to find your correct shoe size.

    Leave it to the decision makers at Teva to botch up a once good product. I was wearing Teva sandals for decades and ordered this pair because they were labeled as "original" Tevas and I wanted to have the same sandals as I had enjoyed in the past. But they botched these up with high arch supports that felt like lumps under my feet. Also the material of the foot-bed is so soft and squishy that it produced foot-fatigue and great foot-pain. There was nothing solid in the foot-bed to provide foot support. It is like walking on squishy eels! I will never order Teva sandals again. They lost a life-long customer. I ordered another brand of sandals to try now. Thanks Teva for botching up a once-good product with your idiot decision makers who do not know when they have a good product and thought it should to be altered with a so-called New and Improved version!

    I have four pairs of these sandals now. I'm a minimalist shoe enthusiast and a hiker/backpacker. My first pair that I used for hiking and backpacking finally wore down enough on the sole to lose traction on the trail, so I've replaced it. My other two pairs are used for less abusive settings, so they have lasted a long time. I've just put 50 miles on my new pair and love them as much as the others. I did discover that the rubber is softer and more cushioning in the new pair -- I don't think this is a change in manufacturing, just that the older pair hardened some over time. These sandals are not as minimalist as, say, the Xero sandals, but they give a little welcome padding for rocky trails. I use both, depending on conditions. I find no need for the more aggressive tread and fancier styling of more expensive sandals. These are great, with or without socks.

    I fully intended on using my Salomon XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoes for a 30 mile Hetch Hetchy Loop thru Lake Vernon with 5500' elevation climb and descent through rivers, lakes, mud, rocks, dirt, and marsh. Instead, I found out that my Salomons were too small (my mistake as I should have anticipated for the feet swelling). Ended up using my Tevas with wool socks for the rest of the 27 miles carrying a 35 lb backpack up and down for 4 days. These things are AMAZING! When wearing socks, they feel fantastic as if you were in runners. Only issue was walking through mud obviously your socks are gonna get wet and nasty but nothing you couldn't just rinse off at the next stream. I am absolutely impressed at how well they kept up because some of the scrambling we did, I fully expected the sandals to bust at the joints or fall apart, but they held up. What a great buy.

    these are by far my favorite sandals to wear every day on good summer days of course granted chaco’s aren’t bad but they carry weight with their souls with teva sandals I guarantee the condition will last a lot longer for their value so I can cross rivers and not feel like I’m dragging feet

    Damn good sandal. It's built well and appears will last. Simple rugged nylon construction. When I first tried them on I thought they would be uncomfortable around the buckles. But after a couple hours of use I forgot I had them on. Really nice foot support especially in the arch. They break in really quick. As tough and comfortable they are I would not hesitate to use them as my daily wear in good weather. They definitely have a David Van Driessen look to them but they are not bad looking. I knocked a star because I wish they had .5 sizes. I wear an eleven shoe and I have about .5 inch behind my heel and another .5 inch in front of my toes. I think a 10.5 would have been perfect and a 10 too small.

    I have wide feet so the adjustable straps work great. Good arch support, the I foot bed is super comfortable. I can walk in them all day. The only reason that I don't give it a 5 star rating is because where the straps connect to the hard plastic triangle by my pinky toes. It digs in a little bit when I'm riding my bicycle. I keep them as loose as possible so it's not due to being to tight. Very odd since that doesn't happen when I walk. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and even during winter during the days can get warm. Casual cycling is one of my favorite things to do and the main reason I got the the shoes. My wife suggested that I put medical tape in that area when I ride my bike but it's disappointing that I would have to resort to that.

    When I took them out of the box I did worry about how "cool" I would - or wouldn't - look in them. And when I first put them on, I have to say, I was concerned their comfort would not reach the dizzy heights suggested in other reviews. But my god, one holiday, many miles, and one trusty pair of sandals later, I am won over. Unparalleled comfort and mischeviously stylish. Suitable for land AND sea. Durable yet playful. Had I not my girlfriend with me I am convinced that the women of Greece would have - much like their ancient ruins - crumbled at the sight of such a dashing, elegant and fantastically practical piece of footwear. Would definitely buy again, but no need - these will last a lifetime.

    I’m delighted with the product but so disappointed and angry with the pointless and, with all we know about plastic pollution, totally unnecessary packaging. Why does a cardboard box that contains the shows have to then be put in a much bigger cardboard box which then has a mass of plastic padding to stop the small cardboard box moving around. Teva pride themselves on their recyclable (and often compostible) packaging only to then have this negated and dismisses by Amazon’s totally irresponsible approach to
    plastic. They should know better and be market leaders in sustainability. I will not order through amazon again.

    For the price I expected a bit more, there is no padding on the straps, so when first wearing the straps are a bit stiff and uncomfortable, I'm hoping that they will give a little after wearing them in a bit.
    But other than that, they are light weight and comfortable on the sole of the foot. Only time will tell if it was money well spent.

    Purchased to give me alternative footware after a long day hiking so weight is important. Excellent at 444 grams

    Very disappointing . I have an old pair of Teva sandals, which are super comfortable, with no hard buckles, just a protective pad where the foot meets the sandal, and a Velcro attachment, in this new pair, the hard buckle caught my foot on walking, so no good.
    Very prompt service from supplier.

    Have bought these sandals a few times now and i live them.
    Simple design but they are so comfortable and being plain black look great.
    Teva simply make the best sandals going and these are a sure winner.

    really comfortable to wear I haven't tried them on holiday yet but from wearing them around the house and in the garden I can see these being the only thing I​ will wear on holiday

    Very comfortable and light to wear.They also have adjustable strips so you can fit them to the foot how you like.Also you can walk with them in the water and they will get dry after.Very happy with them,used them for holiday in Indonesia and they done proper job!

    While I wouldn't be running trails in these. There's are perfect for everyday wear.

    i wear these for walking (10,000 step walks) and they're like clouds. no blisters, no sore soles, nothing. i'm obsessed! i wore them and nothing else for a whole week then went back to trainers and it felt wrong! buy now them for eternal happiness.

    Love this brand Very comfortable
    Item received earlier than expected

    Great product
    Even went swimming in it

    Very good quality and very comfortable.

    Great sandals although the hard soles will begin to seperate if you dip your toes as I do.

    had them before very comfortable to wear hence replacement pair. Thanks
