In addition to their classic velcro strap Original Universal sandal, Teva also makes great wedges, flip-flops, and platform sandals. The classic flat Teva footbed is comfortable and well-cushioned, but more contoured footbeds provide extra arch support and overall comfort. Their long-lasting rubber outsoles hold up to light hiking and are non-marking. The easy-to-adjust leather, nylon, or polyester straps are flexible and durable. Many Teva sandals feature nylon shanks for extra stability and Microban footbeds to prevent odor. Though many Tevas are more utilitarian, some of their flip-flop and wedge designs have bright and intricate patterned straps for a bit of color. And most Teva sandals have different strap and sole colors to choose from.
