I bought these sandals as an alternative to wearing athletic shoes to my husband's cross-country motorcycle races. The races are held in remote areas, and you need a good pair of shoes for the terrain. Problem has been that when it gets hot, my choice was either flip flops for comfort or athletic shoes for walking the terrain. I ordered these to try to fill both needs. I wore them for the first time this past weekend and loved them! They stayed on my feet and kept me grounded while walking on rough terrain, and kept my feet cool and comfortable. I did not have the chance to hike through the heavily wooded areas, so I'm still not sure they'll work there, but they definitely do the job I got them to do! Plus, a really great value from Sierra Trading Post!!

Really wanted to like these sandals. Well made, fit was good - except band over ball of foot had no cushion and was really uncomfortable as it put pressure on the big toe knuckle. Wish they had not changed since Pretty Rugged 2 - which had good cushioning. Going back!

Great cushy sandal, perfect adjustment points for a custom fit. Couldn't keep it though as the size I normally buy in athletic shoes ran a good inch longer than I needed...not a good look. Would have re-ordered, but STP was out of the next smaller size -- boo-hoo.

I currently own Teva Rugged Leathers (the first issue. I have 3 pairs and have worn out 1 completely the other 2 are finally going. I have owned these for about 8 years and wear them constanly as I live in Florida. Since I have foot problems they work the best for me and thats why I bought 3 pair. Unfortunate the Rugged Leather 3 is just not the same shoe. The foot bed is an entirely different shape, this no loger fits my arch.
Even the sizing has changed. The pairs I own are a size 9, I ordered the 9.5 and I could have used a 10. FYi (My noraml shoe size is a 10)
The Top leather part with the velcor across the toes is not as wide, not as padded nor as comforatble or supportive as they used to be. I am totally disappointed with Teva for messing up a good thing.I may try to find a # 2, at least the toe part looks similar.
I consider these sandals less than average,in quality now and for me, not very comfortable. Be warned they now have a fairly high arch bed.

Not pleased with this sandal, so it has been returned.
I didn't like the sandal when I put it on. I previously had Teva Meadow Luxe and LOVED the fit. Hated the odor. Tried to clean the foot bed and ended up ruining the sandals. I had high hopes for this sandal, but it was disappointing to me.
