The Revival Of Teva's Statement Sandals



Bypass the Birkenstocks and set your sights on Teva. The 90's sports sandals brand has had a major revival this year, adding to the latest 'manly / ugly' shoe trend. Created in 1984 by a Grand Canyon river guide, the brand has been producing sturdy, flexible hiking sandals for over 25 years. Besides being designed for water sports and hiking, Teva sandals have emerged as a statement piece this summer, made stylish by copycats as seen on the SS14 catwalk at Muiccia Prada and Marc Jacobs.

No longer seen as sandals for enthusiastic hiking parents and earth loving hippies, the catwalk has embraced Teva as the latest sandal for the summer. Throw them on for a lazy day at the beach, pack them for a relaxing or adventure holiday or to festival; where you never know what weather to expect in England! Why bring a perfectly white, delicate, embellished pair of sandals to a festival when you can wear a pair of tribal print Teva's? As Kevin Bacon would say 'No Brainer!'

I'm really lusting over the flatform inspired design in black and orange from Urban Outfitters, as virtually 90% of my shoe collection are either flatforms or platforms! Other Teva stockists include John Lewis and Office, each offering their own styles. It seems nearly every trend of the 90's has been brought back, but are Teva's the last of the 90's revival? Or are the 90's just getting started?
