Great flops but will get funky...
I've had a couple pairs of the Teva Mush II's and will say, they are comfortable, sure footed in most environs and long lasting. I am an adventure traveller, spend most of my time in Central and South America so I need a flop that will not absorb moisture, these do unfortunately. Once wet, they get funky quickly and unless you have time to bake em in the sun all day to kill em, they will ferment in your pack...not a good thing =( If you don't need em for hostel showers or get em wet on the street (they're big sponges did I mention that??) they're great. Just fine for the casual user, beach goer, etc. I'm not tossing mine, just need an alternative. Happy trails, Johnny
Original was better IMHO
Just bought my third pair of these. (June 2012) The first two were an earlier model. The old ones get used for everything including short hikes and warm water wet wading shoes. The sole was much stickier on the old model and it also was more form fitting to your foot and unreal comfortable. The new ones fit and hold on my feet better with a more comfortable strap. The new ones are slippery in places where the other ones were fine. All in all OK but not as versatile as the older ones. And I must disagree that [$] is inexpensive for flip flops. They are less expensive than some quality flip flops but inexpensive flip flops are $2.50 at [@].
The very best flip flops I ever wore
I had different pair of flip flops, but once I found Teva, I'm sorry but they were the best. I have a closet full of old ones that are like new, but I always wear my poor old ones. I had bought 3 pair all different colors, blue, black and a red-green-yellow mix. I got them from my mom, (Lol) on my birthday, 3 years ago and I still got them and no blow outs on them. they seen better days but I wont through out those old puppies yet. not till I replace them.. and then will I think about it, smiling...
Best flip flops ever
I am a flip flop junkie and have tried just about every pair out there. These are by far the most comfortable. I think I am on my forth or fifth pair. I wear them all summer in all kinds of conditions from around town, around the lake to hiking on trials to local creeks. They do tend to wear out fast (mine last about a year) but they're flip flops and they're cheap. One thing about sizing, buy the size you normally wear. They will look too small when new but they squish out and mold to your foot.
Solid pair of inexpensive sandals
I bought these for my husband when his 10+ year old Birks finally died. The problem is, he wears a size 15/16 and has a pretty wide foot, so his options are limited. These sandals were available in larger sizes, and are not unattractive. I wish they offered a wider size though. The 15s were actually longer than I expected but fairly narrow. They've worked though, and he's happily wearing them around. And we're used to paying a small fortune for his shoes, so it was a bonus that these were inexpensive.
A Bomber Product at a Bomber Price
I can't believe these things. They weigh nothing, cost next-to-nothing and are extraordinarily comfortable. I'm not much of a flip-flop guy, but I bought a pair of these and a pair of the 75 dollars variety a few years back for a trip to Mexico. The 75 dollar ones tweaked my lumbar spine, were heavy, and just didn't work for me. These, OTOH, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I suspect the soles will compress eventually. Big deal. I'll buy another pair.
I bought these for my camp shoes while at the bivwack site. I have only used them on two trips but they are light weight (8oz), Extremely comfortable, great arch support, breath well so my feet dry quickly after a long day and actually stay on my feet. I have no problem slipping these on instead of my boots for the middle of the night "#1 or 2" breaks.
Super Value & Comfortable
I bought these for "Camp" shoes while my feet dry from a long day of hiking. They are extremely comfortable, have great arch support and best of all they stay on my feet. I have no reservations of slipping these on for the nightly bathroom break instead of my boots. They weight 8oz so packing them is a no brainer. They are worth the "Weight vs comfort" scenario.
Perfect for backpacking
I took these on my last backpacking trip to put on at the camp. Loved how light they are yet strong and durable enough to wear down to the lake and to go swimming. I even ended up hiking about a mile in them on a fairly rugged USFS trail (didn't plan to go that far!) and they handled it beautifully. Holy **** they are comfortable!
High marks for comfort and design
I give these flipflops very high marks for comfort and cleverness. The top layer "mushes" down allowing your foot to sink in and create its own level of arch support (I have high arches). But underneath is a firmer layer insulating you from the pavement. These have proven to be supremely comfortable and instantly supplanted my current (now former) go-to flipflops. Well done, TEVA!
