So its 2010 and i got a new pair of tevas.
my old pair was from 1999 and they are still in excellent condition!
my wife kept telling me my feet stunk when i wore them though.
i guess the antimicrobial stuff wore off after 11 years.
needless to say i still have my old ones but wear my new ones!
love them to death!

After reading Lobster Tony's review, I had to give them a run. So far so good, can't beat 'em for both wet and arid climates alike.

my 10 yr old terra fi's
June 20, 2010
here is a pick of my 1999 teva original terra fi's
keep in mind i wore these everyday one year. and every summer since.
in my opinion they are very much in the "good condition" department.
i have gotten a new pair since. if i don't wash the old ones outside and let them sit in the sun they start to stink.
SINCE THE '80'S, I THINK.....

The perfect water sandal
June 18, 2010
I've had lots of water shoes/sandals. These are the best. The problem with closed toe sandals/water shoes is the protection is increased, but sand and stones/shells get in no matter what- on my Columbia water shoes, Teva Wraptors, New Balance 921's and Keen h2o newports-same thing. Once the junk is in it doesn't go anywhere. On these Teva's, the junk gets in and the water quickly washes it out. I never have to take them off to clear pebbles or sand.
They are very comfortable. They are very sure footed. I was able to carry my 45lb. son down a steep trail with loose gravel and sand and didn't slip at all.
Terra Fi 3
December 18, 2011
I read all the bad reviews on the TF3 compared to the TF2( the heel plug) I finally bought a pair after wearing the Hurricanes ( terrible ) and I can't find that much of a difference. The sandals are just as comfortable as the old and I have been wearing them working ( building a deck ) and as water shoes. No difference. I did notice the velcro is not as sticky as the old, but hasn't been a problem. The heel plug was a little annoying when I first wore them, but I don't notice it now ( and it doesn't leave a Teva "hand" pattern in my heel ) I have been wearing them (beating them up ) for a month and a half. So far, very good sandals.
Teva Terra Fi 3 Men's sandals

They rock! They were bought as a gift and the person loved them and were exactly what he was looking for. Sturdy, water proof and beach resistant. Great stuff!
Love my Teva Terra Fi 3

Got it 2 months ago and have been using them every sunny day it feels so nice to wear them.
I took them to the World Scout Jamboree and used them every single day for everything even if it was raining !

Ive owned at least 7 sets of Teva Tera fi2s and put 500-1000 miles on them. So I was a little hesitant when the Tera Fi3 came out. I read some bad reviews such as hard shock pad and uncomfortable straps.
Now that Ive been wearing the Tera fi3 black ones for over a month, I must say they are comfortable. Even the shock pads feel softer. Im just wondering if other reviewers received some inferior sandals? Or do the different colors use slightly different materials? The reason I say this is because the Tera Fi2s I got from Sierra Trading Post, and the black ones that came straight from Teva, felt different.
I now prefer the 3s over the 2s because the arch is slightly higher which translates to a more comfortable walk, hike, and backpacking trip. To me theyre softer than the 2s. Ive backpacked in Tera fis for over 7 years now and they are great in all terrain: Rocky Mountains, desert, bog, rain or shine. I like these sandals since theyre light weight and extremely hard to twist your ankle (which I have not been able to accomplish after a few thousand miles). And unlike boots, theyre comfortable right out of the box. However, there are tricks to the trade for high mileage sandal backpacking. One of them is using a fast drying, cushy, cool sock. Another is cinch them tight when walking and loosen them when resting. This will prevent blisters. You wont need camp slippers with these. Just loosen them and feel a bit of heaven in camp. If they ever get muddy (typical on my trips), I just rinse them in a stream. When its raining at night, I leave them outside my tent in the rain and put on clean sandals in the morning.
I thought the tera fi 2s had the best grip on sloping wet granite: Much much better than vibram. However, these Tera Fi 3s have even better grip! The traction is incredible!
I also do basketball, tennis, and biking in these sandals. I like black sandals with black socks and them my work mates never notice Im wearing sandals.
This is a good high quality sandal.

The Terra Fi's are the quintessential active sandal. The tough-as-nails spider rubber outsole grips to anything wet, dry and in between. The foot support is great, I have a high arch and the footbed cradles the foot like a baby. The strap system is very reliable, though the toe strap does pinch the little toe sometimes. Personally, I get the most use out of these in the boundary waters, where they are the perfect hybrid for fast drying after unloading and enough support for the portage. I've been wearing Terra Fi's all my life, and I probably won't stop any time soon.
Teva's are Killer!

This is the best sandal for extreme sports enthusiasts. I go through about 1 pair a year, walking/running over lava to get to my killer dive spots in Hawaii. Want to join me - check out www.hawaiicampingadventures.com
