In 1984, Grand Canyon river rafting guide Mark Thatcher invented the sport sandal when he laced webbing through his flip flops. In a few short years, Teva grew from a small, van-based operation to purveyor of a huge range of footwear for outdoor fitness pursuits of every stripe.
These rugged shoes and sandals aren't just for kayaking & canoeing any more. Today you can spot Teva women's footwear and men's footwear everywhere from waterways to hiking trails to urban sidewalks.
Options in Teva women's sandals range from the classic open-toed watersport sandals to flip-flops to closed-toed multi-sport sandals just right for a day hike. Teva men's watersport sandals are still the leading sport utility sandals, and now you can even find multi-sport footwear for hiking, backpacking and other cross-training pursuits.
Strange to think that so many people grew up without Teva kids' footwear. What did parents do before these sturdy slippers and sandals and boots and shoes for the younger set?
At REI you'll find top-rated and top-selling gear from Teva, plus plenty of sale & clearance deals and bargains.
