In the great sandals debate, I am firmly on the side of Teva. I will cast aside any editorial objectivity to praise this brand that so seamlessly combines retro style decisions with excellent modern technology. Teva sandals are equally ideal for lounging in the backyard as they are for hitting the trail. And with their latest release, I’m reaching for my credit card. The new Teva Zymic offers the cushy comfort of a sneaker with the breathability of their classic sandals.
Welded thermoplastic polyurethane provides reinforcement and keeps your step sturdy while the EVA midsole, which is made from 20% recycled materials, offers lightweight support. The mesh straps are soft and comfortable on your feet and are made from 100% recycled materials. The entire sandal is recyclable thanks to the TevaForever program which transforms old sandals into running tracks, playground material, or even new sandals. The Teva Zymic sandals are available in black/purple and black/sunflower colorways for $80.
