I bought some Teva Tirra's recently, specifically for long walks in the country/hills as my walking boots are too hot in this weather. I have to say I'm thrilled with them - extremely comfortable, surprisingly supportive, really good grip and they don't rub at all. As far as walking sandals go, I think they're also pretty good looking. However, I did buy them for practical reasons so I'm not sure I'm the right person to comment on how fashionable they are!

I put my Teva universal originals in the washing machine in a net bag on a cool wash and they come out like new. Even the all white ones. So I would say they are a good shout for beach shoes.

I love my Tevas. Saltwaters are very stylish and great on the beach but I find that they aren’t very supportive for longer walks.

Thanks for this thread OP, I've been eyeing up Tevas but I don't know if they'd be supportive enough. Where is that last multi-strap pair from please?

I'm a big fan of Birkenstocks too, but like you, wouldn't want to get them wet.

I bought Teva Samborn sandals for walking and I love them. They’re a bit more ergonomic than the regular Teva’s.

Teva’s are also now madly fashionable

The plastic birkenstocks?

I was going to say crocs as they are great on the beach and for camping.

Of the three you posted, the midform universals are the only style that has any fashion currency if that's what you mean by fine line. The other two are nice, but only in a practical sense. No rhyme or reason to what's on trend is there?

Birkenstocks EVA are a good shout for camping and beach. Perfect for damp morning grass and dashing to the loo or washing up station, and you can wear them in the shower if it's not super clean. I'd go for Arizonas, then you can wear socks with them in the evening. Camping chic. Only thing, I can walk a long way in them but I wouldn't do a proper hike on uneven ground or ton of kms in them if you were a serious walker, but I could with the Tevas. That is what they're for.

I have these Keen water and walking sandals. They are insanely comfortable, supportive for walking on rough/steep/loose/muddy/sandy ground and brilliant in water. They dry out quickly. I think they are a good example of beauty being in the eye of the beholder.

I had a thread on Tevas a couple of weeks back as I’d ordered some Teva universals and they just didn’t seem to work on my feet (they looked huge and rubbed on one of the connections) I eventually got the Teva sanborn and they are so comfortable!! I think you have to be mindful of what you wear them with if you want them to look stylish, but I’d definitely recommend them. I think the patterned ones are great!

I love my Teva original Universals and they are so comfy and seem hard-wearing (only a year old) - however if I'm going to get my feet properly wet it's Saltwaters all the way. Tevas are still wet hours later, whereas Saltwaters seem to dry really quickly especially in good weather. Not so comfy walking in, but I can do a couple of miles in them. They are also nearly 5 years old and look as good as new.

I'd probably wear Tevas, but carry Saltwaters in my bag!

I used to wear Tevas. They are great sandals.
However, I find I prefer Keens now because they have toe protection and stay on my feet better in the ocean.

I just got these reef convertible sandals after looking at the Teva options and deciding they were not quite right for me. flipflopshop.co.uk/product/reef-mens-convertible-sandals
I think they tick the same retro box without being quite so “on trend” as Tevas. They are super comfy and practical. (They are unisex and come in women’s sizes although they are described as men’s).
