Tuesday Shoesday: Teva Sandals


In all my years of “sole” searching, I’ve discovered that the formula for the perfect shoe is finding one that effortlessly blends both comfort and style. This is why I am so thankful that Teva shoes have become the new “It” sandal for the summer. Lately, I’ve been so obsessed with mine. My hair stylist Ryan and I wear ours all the time… they’ve even become our new favorite shoes to travel in at the airport. Created exactly thirty years ago, their most popular design features a rubber sole and webbing top, but get this: Its initial concept was conceived as an “old Velcro watch strap attached to a flip flop.” How amazing is that?


Made popular as the quintessential hiking sandal of the late-eighties/ nineties, Tevas haven’t always been at the forefront of fashion (that is unless the outdoors utilitarian look is your thing!). This season, however, they’re definitely having a moment for both the functional and the fashionable. I am quite thrilled that designers like Prada, Rag&Bone, Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs have embraced the strappy sandal with the cushy sole, putting their own spin on them in their 2014 spring runway shows. From the mountain tops to the catwalks, Tevas will always be one of my favorites. They’re also a favorite of What do you think? Would you wear them?

    Only people who spend their lives on the beach could wear them, not flattering otherwise. Surfers yes, every one else, no.
