Overall Score
Clever use of the humble flip flop!
Not great for longer walks

Born on a river as two watchbands and a pair of flip flops the Teva Originals ushered in a new breed of footwear that provided comfort and stability but also that wonderful feeling of your feet being free to breath in the open air.

The design hasn’t changed much over the years – ok they may have swapped out the watchstraps for polyester webbing but the basic principles of a pared-down flip flop and strap still exist.

The polyester webbing straps work reasonably well in keeping your feet and ankles stable but the Originals work best at the beach or on a leisurely walk on flat and even terrain rather than on rougher ground.

The EVA footbed is contoured to the shape of your foot and the Durabrasion rubber outsole provides good grip and durability.

If you want something easy-going like a flip flop but with that little bit more stability and durability and at a great price then the Originals are a no-brainer.
