Forget about stilettos and strappy heeled sandals, there’s a new and fashionable footwear for us ladies and it’s “god-send” comfortable — Teva shoes.
That’s right, Tevas are the clunky and strappy “river sandals” people use for extreme water adventures. They have become so popular among adrenaline junkies that even major sports brands have come up with their own rendition of these adventure shoes.
What’s surprising is that these sandals, held together using velcro and often comes in the colour black, have found their way into some of the most regarded fashion houses and even graced the biggest fashion events in the world.
Power brands like Prada, Roger Vivier and Marc Jacobs have come up with their own rendition of the sandal and designers like Sandy Liang and Collina Strada actually used Tevas on the runway in last year’s New York Fashion Week for Spring 2019.
They're well on their way to being as popular as other widely prominent “ugly shoes” trend such as the cringe-inducing dad sneakers, now elevated by fashion houses Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.
But like all fashion lambs, we’re willing to follow and give Teva-inspired shoes a try. But how do we pull off these utilitarian sandals? Here’s how to wear Teva-inspired shoes to make you believe this footwear is actually cool.
