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.
Starting in 2020, all Teva’s iconic straps are made using traceable, verifiable recycled plastic using REPREVE® yarn, reducing their reliance on virgin plastic. That’s over 9 million plastic bottles kept out of landfills and put to better use strapping sandals to your feet
