Why We Like The Original Universal Sandal

In the summertime, it's hard to keep our little daredevils from tearing off their shoes and socks. So, we strap them into the Original Universal Sandal to give them the cool, barefoot freedom feeling they seek and to give ourselves peace of mind, knowing the cushy, rugged sole is protecting their feet from riverbed debris, playground gravel, and our pup's backyard landmines.

This the second pair I have bought for my daughter!

This is the perfect summer sandal for kids. The straps are adjustable for comfort and can get wet and dry quickly.

Comfy shoes

I had to buy some new sandals and I had heard that Teva sandals are very comfy. So I decided to try them. I am an adult that wears children size shoes. They are perfect. They are comfy.

Have worn Tevas for years and now have my grandkids hooked!

I pretty much live in my Teva Original Universal 9 months out of the year. They are my favorite for day to day, around the house, river runs, kayaking, gardening, ... you name it. A few years ago, I started buying them for my oldest grandchild, and she's probably on her 5th pair now. Recently, I decided to get her little brother a pair for his 4th birthday. He loves them! I prefer the flexibility and trim sole of the Teva Original Universal - especially for kids with growing feet. They don't limit movement and are more along the lines of a barefoot shoe. It keeps them grounded. They can get them on and off easily (independence). They don't cramp their feet and toes, great for the park, lake, trail, or the pool, and are so easily adjustable. Win/win/win!

Great for the whole family

These sandals are awesome. They are extremely comfortable, durable and well made. We like the versatility of being able to wear it for walking around town or going to the beach/pool. We got one of these for each of us in the family and intend to keep purchasing them as the kids outgrow theirs.

Sole falls apart

My kids love these sandals and they are super comfortable, but after about 6 weeks of normal wear, the pink part of the sole is falling off. I'm going to super-glue them and hope for the best, but I expected better quality.

These sandals are a staple for our summer happenings

My boys wear these simple, sturdy sandals. Easy for them to get in and off, nice and breezy for their footsies!

Fantastic summer staple

Got a pair of these for each of my kids, size 10 for my 3 year old, and youth 5 for my 9 year old. They fit perfect, both kids love them. They are the perfect summer sandal. I grew up getting a pair of tevas every single summer of my childhood. These are the same basic sandal I remember. We spend our summers out in the gardens, on the lake, on and off boats, hiking etc and tevas handle it all. Wet or dry. They stay on and should last us the season.

Coming apart not long after purchase

My daughter has worn these sandals half a dozen times and the outsole is separating from the insole. She's worn them on the playground, mostly, and to school a couple of times. She's not doing anything unusual in her play - I don't think that this can be an expected outcome after so few times of wearing them. I'm pretty disappointed.

Love this for my toddler!

Great fit, seem comfy for him. Pleased with Teva products as always. Had to return the first pair when I ordered the wrong size, their exchange process was so easy!
