Teva Sandal Review
When I kayak I need footwear that is easy to take on and off, that is sturdy on rocks, and that floats. My Teva sandals are just perfect!
I bought these a while ago so I don't remember the exact model they are. They say "TEVA" on them but not anything further. Looking at the web, they appear to be the Hurricane line of sandals. If someone knows how I can tell for sure, please let me know.
In any case, they are REALLY comfortable. I have worn them on long hikes, on casual walks, and of course on numerous kayaking trips. I definitely wear them as we are unloading and loading the kayaks, and putting them in and out of the water. Then I tend to take them off while we're actually kayaking, so I can kayak barefoot. They easily strip on and off and tuck in the back hatch area of my kayak.
I'm very happy that they are not a "between the toes" type of flip-flop. Those always bothered my toes. These go across the top of the toes and with the multiple adjustment straps I have them so they fit perfectly. It's one-pull to velcro them on and off.
I definitely need my shoes to be secure. When one is lugging a heavy kayak across rocks and pavement and other obstacles, it's important to have steady feet. I've never had any problems at all with the sandals. They grip well and cushion well.
