There’s one brand of sandals that have escaped the cruel (yet sometimes true) world of being deemed “ugly” to enter the world of being considered a fashionable (and affordable) closet essential.
No, we’re not talking about Birkenstocks. We’re talking Tevas, the shoe that Vogue (yes, Vogue) called the shoe of the summer. The shoe that children at camp in the 60s wore. The shoe that is now cool for adults and their children.
In fact, according to shopping website Lyst, Tevas are the trendiest shoes of the year so far. The sandal is so popular that the site (which pulls data from 5 million shoppers) ranked them the No. 1 hottest women’s shoe.
In 2019 alone, Lyst estimates that searches for the shoe increased by 350 percent, making it more popular than any stiletto or sneaker in the market.
What makes these shoes so incredible is their durability, functionality and chunky style. They’re shoes you can wear on a hike to a bar and to run errands — and you’re likely to receive compliments on them in any of those settings.
Right now at Zappos, the most popular shoe of the year has a ton of styles and colors on sale.
Teva’s original style in a cool-tone palette, perfect for an easy transition from summer to early fall.
Add some height with this incredibly comfortable (and affordable) style—you get two for the price of one!
If you’re not a fan of the usual strappy Tevas, the Elzada slides provide more space for your feet to breathe and wiggle free.
For walkers, hikers and bird watchers who tired of foot pain, a sporty pair of Tevas can aid your adventures and support your arches all at once.
While Teva is known for its active sandals, this fashionable option has a classic leather look with subtle stitching at the toe strap.
