I bought my first Teva's about 25 years ago. They were plain black. Awhile later Teva came out with ones that had a WHITE sole (I live in Florida) and a much more substantial sole, called an "active shank". I also have another black pair with gold embroidery on the straps. I wore these 3 prs everywhere, except to work - and I still own and wear all 3 prs. So, then i got old!! I now need good support because I am 81 and somewhat unsteady when walking.. I tried several other brands, was not happy, saw your ad., remembered how great Teva's are.............ordered shoes online for the first time - and am now completely happy ! The ordering procedure was easy - I was told to expect them with in 5 days - they came in 4 ; exactly what I had ordered, and Teva is still producing shoes that fit, support, are good-looking, lots to choose from and have made it possible for me to feel secure, walk anywhere and to go to the beach again!! I am about to order my next pair, as soon as I decide which ones!! And now my Daughter is showing signs of interest, also;.Probably because of my raving about both Teva and Onlne Shoes.
