You know Teva sandals. You might love them, you might hate them—you might even pretend to hate them. I rejected the “ugly” sandals for years, despite how comfortable and practical they are. But the days of brushing Tevas off as the shoe canoes worn by your favorite seventh-grade science teacher are long gone. The double-strap dad sandal got cute, and the otherwise “crunchy” brand is now a summer must-have—and a mainstay.
Influencers and celebs have anointed their feet with the ugly-cool shoe, with everyone from Solange to Elle Fanning entering the Tevasphere. Over the last few seasons, the brand has partnered with major designers including Anna Sui, artists like Tegan and Sara, and Instagram-favorite labels such as Outdoor Voices to create footwear that suits a variety of aesthetics and causes. Just this week Teva launched its second and final drop with beloved fashion retailer Opening Ceremony, which was forced to close its brick-and-mortar stores in the wake of the coronavirus.
The Velcro hiking sandals have been dotted with seashells, lined with bandanas, and have tasted the rainbow. By now Teva sandals come in so many options you can find one to pair effortlessly with your breezy linen dresses, high-waist jeans, or whatever swimsuit trend has caught your eye this season.
Beyond the ugly-in-a-good-way fashion, Teva sandals are a downright comfortable, gender-neutral shoe. They're durable and made for all-day wear, whether you're headed on a socially distant walk or a scenic bike ride. Classic Tevas have a cushiony rubber sole and quick-drying straps made from 100% recycled plastic. Others are waterproof with extra traction for dipping your feet into the nearest
creek inflatable pool.
Whatever your style, you're bound to find the perfect Teva sandals for you this summer. Shop 14 options—plus a handful of Teva-inspired shoes—worth adding to cart now.
