Teva: Comfortable and Durable Sandals Since 1984


When it was first created in 1984, the Teva sandal was thought to be the first amphibious, athletic sandal. The sandals were invented by Grand Canyon river guide Mark Thatcher for those seeking an active, outdoor life with comfort. He wanted people to enjoy the lifestyle he so enjoyed without restraint. Calling the first Teva sandals humble is quite the understatement. The well-known, sturdy sandals of today were created with just an old Velcro watch strap attached to a flip flop. (Talk about improvising!) Thatcher originally signed a deal with California Pacific and 200 pairs were sold in the first year. In 1985, Deckers Outdoor Corporation entered into a licensing agreement to produce and distribute Teva sandals.

The sandals were designed to be a “go anywhere, do anything” type of sandal for those inclined to the sporty life. The Teva sandal is the world’s first sports sandal, reminiscent of the ones used by the ancient Romans, and has been a dependable brand for over thirty years.

Teva sandals consist of 3 parts: the toe post, the heel strap, and the side strap. These straps are connected to each other by triangular rings where each strap goes around one side of each each. The 2-layer sole consists of an inner, softer one that serves as a footbed, and there is also arch support and Microban Zinc, which is a technology that prevents odor.
