The original sport sandal emerged from the shores of the Grand Canyon back in 1984. Born out of necessity to prevent sandals from floating downstream, a resourceful river guide strapped two Velcro watchbands to a pair of old flip-flops and just like that, Teva was born. In the years following, Teva has retained the same pioneering spirit and continues to celebrate the freedom to explore.
As enduring as they are timeless, Teva's signature straps are continually reimagined in a variety of patterns, dreamt up by Teva's designers from around the globe and starting in 2020, all iconic straps across their entire product line will be made from traceable, verifiable recycled plastic. Teva wants those who come after us to have the freedom to explore the outdoors tomorrow, so they reduce their footprint today.
