      First off, I don't want to take them off my feet! They feel sturdy and the colors are spot on. However they are so long! I order the 7 and I have relatively wide feet. The width was perfect, but I have a full inch of space between my big toe and the top of the shoe. It doesn't feel uncomfortable but it doesn't look appealing. I'd order a soze down.

      I am a long time owner of the Teva Universal style having bought my first pair in 1993, and still have my 1995 pair. I am pleased that Teva brought back this style but disappointed with two features of the new Universals. First, is the omission of the adjustable rear strap; that allowed the wearer to position his foot arch exactly on the footbed arch support. Second is the very soft and spongy foam footbed on the new Universal. I now feel every pebble through the sole; it is a bit like wearing bedroom slippers outside. The original Universals had a much firmer, almost hard footbed which I prefer.
      Still, it is a move in the right direction by Teva to return to the minimal strapping of this style.

            Comments about Teva Original Universal Sandals:

            I bought my first pair of Teva sandals in 2005. They finally gave out last year (2016). They were my favorite walking shoes and while I never wore them for serious hiking, I always took them camping or used them for long walks in the city (with at least 4-5 walks every week).

            The straps on these new ones are still very sturdy, and they are very comfortable. But I am a little worried about durability. The soles don't feel like they will make it 11 years, or even 5. I do also trip sometimes on the toe (which I don't do in, say, my flip-flops) which makes me wonder if a half size smaller would have been better, but the width and fit of the straps are perfect, so... maybe not. They do also sometimes squeak loudly under my foot in a way that drives me to distraction.

            All that said, I like them and I wear them on evening walks or low-intensity hikes. And maybe the soles will turn out to be sturdier than they seem.

            Only complaint is that the outside plastic piece closest to the ankle can rub pretty badly. Solved by just wearing the top straps a little looser.

              Comments about Teva Original Universal Sandals:

              I love this shoe, I just decided another Teva style was for me. I purchased two styles and decided to keep the Alp for the style and comfort - but mainly the style. I know from family experience that this classic style is long lasting, comfortable and durable. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, outdoor, casual shoe (I was shopping for a new summer festival shoe, myself). The triangle piece rubbed my right pinky toe a bit, but from what I hear this goes away as the shoes get worn-in and more flexible. I typically wear either a 5 1/2 or a 6, and I chose a 6 in this only to decide that it was SLIGHTLY too big. If I had decided to keep this shoe, I would have gotten a 5.

                Love them! After reading reviews everyone said if you are between sizes order up. I don't agree with this at all. I'm usually a 6.5-7 I ordered the 7 and they were way too big. Returned for the 6 and they are perfect!!!

                  These shoes are wonderful to walk in. I wear them for everything and I love the indigo color! However, my only complaint is that there is not enough variety in shoe color choices. I suggest creating more variety of colorful/unique colors. Otherwise, wonderful shoe!
