I purchased these sandals in replacement of some New Balance sandals which wore very poorly due to poor material quality. The contrast between these Teva sandals and the New Balance is like night and day. These sandals are so much more durable and the traction is excellent. The tongue of the sandals is nicely padded and the support of the sandals is very good. I have narrow feet and was concerned that these sandals might be too wide, but the sandals have great flexibility on how tight you want them. There are only two negatives I can come up with; for some reason they collect rocks in the sandals rather easily especially when walking on gravel which can be annoying. The other thing was almost a deal breaker, there is a seam on the right side of where the Achilles' tendon is supposed to go that rubbed very badly like sand paper. The stitching was in a zigzag and stuck out somewhat. Fortunately after using it for about two weeks the sandals must have stretched out just enough to stop the rubbing. It is much better now though I can't truly explain why the problem stopped. Overall, a great product!!!
