When most people think of Teva sandals, chic is definitely not a word most ladies would use to describe these shoes. Casual, comfortable, outdoorsy, and adventurous are adjectives that really come to mind when I think of the brand. When I think of Teva shoes I am immediately brought back to some of my favorite childhood memories. My dad and I would always take some of the best adventures when I had summer break from school. From road tripping to the sand dunes to mountain biking and hiking in Colorado, no adventure was too big for us. It’s amazing Teva footwear has literally been such a huge part of my life growing up that it’s almost a little emotional getting to share why I have loved them so much for so many years, from my childhood into my 30s. Now that I’m older, I can’t wait to share how I Strap Into Freedom with Teva Sandals!
Although the road trips with dad have stopped my need for a great outdoor shoe is still there now that I have been living in Austin for the past 10 years. Austin is a very adventurous, outdoorsy city and regular tennis shoes or flip flops just wont cut it if you’re planning an outdoor excursion. There are so many places to hike, bike, swim and all of the above in the same area so you really have to be prepared with a great shoe that will get you safely and comfortably through the elements. I know I’m biased but I am still living in Teva sandals!
Now that times have changed and styles are evolving, even for outdoorsy shoes, there are some really beautiful yet comfy sandals available. I had just finished up brunch with a friend and wanted to take Steven (my dog) over to the dog side of Barton Springs for a quick dip since it was so hot outside. 105 degree temps with a heat index of 125 would make anyone want to jump into that frigid water! I wasn’t heading home before the Springs so I actually wore my Teva sandals with my brunch look and they surprisingly didn’t look too sporty like I had worried about! That’s one reason I obsess over these shoes! You can wear them out to lunch and then out to hike or swim! Anyway, talk about being glad I wore those too… It had been raining so the ground was damp and slick which made me grateful I had something that was attached to my foot with some tread! One reason I love wearing these out to the Springs is that if I just get my feet in the water with Steven and get out, my shoes aren’t going to be drenched afterwards.
Since living in Austin I have been stocking up on these shoes and have found the BEST and most efficient way to shop for them online; Zappos! Not only do they offer fast, free shipping every single time they also have a 365-day return policy and killer customer service!
Below, I’ve listed the six pairs of Teva sandals I wear anytime I am doing something outdoorsy in Austin. These shoes have gotten me through so many fun adventures and they are still in amazing condition. What I love about these shoes is that they aren’t extremely expensive yet they will last you years and years. Inexpensive plus free shipping… there’s really no other place you should be buying your Teva shoes!

Overall, it has really been cool to find a shoe that is as unique and spontaneous as I am for the past 25+ years. There is no other brand that I have been this loyal to for this long. Teva sandals will be something I will have in my life until the end! With that being said, wherever I can find the best online shopping experience, you better know that’s where I will be spending my money! With all of the online retail options out there Zappos is my most trusted and will always be my go-to.
