Guide To Teva Sandals | Fit, Sizing and Styling

Vogue called them the ‘shoes of the summer’, and who are we to argue? OurTevasandals have quickly become our wear-with-all pair, sending all our trainers and slip on to irrelevance at the bottom of the shoe rack. Combining practicality with minimalist utilitarian style, you can’t go wrong with Teva sandals, providing unrivalled comfort for long summer days. 

Durable, supportive and matching everything, you need a pair of Teva sandals to see you through the hot weather. To guide you towards that add-to-basket button, here is our Teva sandals buyer's guide, giving you our best advice on styling and sizing.  


#1 How do Teva sandals fit? 

Due to their velcro fastening, Teva works for foot types, whether you need a wide or narrow fit. They can come up a bit long, so if you’re in between sizes, round down and opt for the smaller size.

For the best measurement to figure out your size: 

  1. Draw a straight line, longer than your foot, on a piece of paper. 
  2. Place the paper on a flat surface. Stand on the line with your heel and longest toe centred on the line. If measuring a child's foot, it may be easier to hold the paper up to their foot. 
  3. Place a mark on the line at the tip of the longest toe and at the back of the heel. 
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the other foot. 
  5. Measure the distance between the marks. Taking the larger of the two measurements, use the conversion chart to find your correct shoe size. 

#2 Are Teva Sandals comfortable? 

Short answer: yes. Teva sandals are crafted with years of experience and expertise, designed specifically to be comfortable and supportive. 

Way back in the 1980s, Teva created the original sports sandal with the original flip flop thong strap, noticing a gap in the market for shoes suitable for river activities. They quickly gained attention outside of sports circles as people caught onto their stylish fit and ease. Later in 1985, they introduced the universal strap, fastening around the ankle and footbone for increased comfort and style. This was when the Teva sandals we’ve come to love were born, and they haven’t changed since, keeping all the sports comfort but adapting it into a more fashion forward fit.  


#3 What are Teva sandals made of? 


Teva sandal straps are made from 100% recycled plastic using traceable polyester yarn, meaning that your sandals save 4 plastic bottles from ending up in landfills. They’re also quick-drying and durable while still being gentle on your feet. 


On the Universal Teva Sandals, the sole is made up of an inner sole which serves as a footbed, providing arch support and comfort to last all day. The outer sole is made of durable rubber to ensure your sandals last ages and have good grip to take you from city streets to hiking treks. 

#4 Which Teva sandals are best for walking? 

If you’re looking for walking sandals to see you through long treks or hikes, look towards the Teva Hurricane sandals. With the same levels of comfort and support, the Teva Hurricane sandals have an extra level of grip via their Rugged Durabrasion Rubber outsole. This specially designed sole gives you extra grip as well as a bit more spring in your step, making them the perfect walking sandals for your summer adventures.

#5 How to style Teva sandals?

For a no-brainer casual look, pair your Teva Original Universal Sport sandals with jeans or neutral tone trousers for a bright and breezy outfit. Our recommendation for gents, is sandals and oversized shirts left unbuttoned are a flawless summer combo, doubling down on minimalist vibes. For the ladies, you really can't go wrong with your favourite slouchy denim and cotton t-shirt with sandals, three wardrobe staples paired to perfection.

All white is always an impactful look, but something about swapping out white trainers for fresh white sandals feels 10x better. With their rubber soles and recycled plastic straps, Teva sandals are easily wiped clean, so you can wear paler tones without the worry. We know we'll be spending the summer in a colour palette of white, beige and grey, keeping us cool with sandals to match.

Match the function of Teva sandals to your outfit by pairing them with other utility details like a trending vest. This monochrome outfit with a heavy colour pop is a lesson in perfect styling, giving you maximum impact while staying effortless. An all-black outfit will also help you carry your Teva sandals into spring and autumn months, avoiding them feeling too summery by playing up their functional build.

Who said you can't wear Teva sandals for a formal occasion?! Practice some high low sports-luxe dressing by pairing the functional Teva Hurricane sandals with a softer formal dress like a silk slip dress. Paired with simple gold accessories and a bag, you've got yourself a perfect formal outfit for people that don't like to be too feminine, adding a little edge into the mix.

Pair a cute smock dress with  Teva flatform sandals and ankle socks for super cute vibes with a little twist. Adding in the utilitarian minimalist platforms will stop your prettiest dresses being too sickly sweet, especially with added heavy layered jewellery. It may be controversial, but we love it.
