I am a fan of the minimalist look, and I always pick out clothes or shoes that do not stand out too much, and yet are remarkable enough to make a statement.
I have been wearing Teva’s shoes for some time, and it’s no secret that I am a huge fan – they always make something that I would wear in any situation, as is the case once again with Teva Women’s Zirra Sandals.
I have a pair of Teva sandals that I’ve worn for two-three summers, but now I am completely ready for something else. While searching their new line of shoes, I noticed these unique strap sandals. The thing that caught my eye was the single strap in the front that is nicely connected (as a matter of fact it is the only strap) to the back, where you can adjust it the way you want it.
To be honest, they look incredibly great on the foot, in my opinion, only because of that one slim strap. The front part may be made of only one strap, but is very comfortable and amazingly suitable for wearing on the beach, and even for swimming, as I will. They were designed to endure getting wet, so drying them isn’t a problem at all. My summer consists of lazy walks on the beach, lots of swimming and boat jumping, so I I’ll wear my Teva Women’s Zirra Sandals the whole time.
Light weight and very easy to walk in, Teva Women’s Zirra Sandals should be great at the beach . Till now, I wasn’t a person who would usually wear sandals for swimming, but since they aren’t heavy, or give you the feeling like they drag you down in the water, I won’t mind wearing them. Reviewers claim that even after getting them wet over a long period of time, the straps don’t get easily damaged, and they still lay perfectly on the foot.
Perhaps, this is the only design I find easy to combine with any outfit, including summer cocktail dresses of any length. When it comes to colors, Teva designed only two – black and brown (Chocolate Chip) and I got the black ones, since I could combine them with anything.
If you think that one strap only is not enough to keep the sandal on your foot, or that you may lose balance while walking, I assure you that it will not happen because of the special design.
You see, the strap secures the toes well, and then goes across the top of your foot and ends on the heel strap; it is practically wrapped around it. The fabric the straps are made of is firm enough to last, and is tightly glued to the footbed so they can last a long time.
The little buckle has a special lock design, and if you press it in a downward direction, it will keep the strap on the spot where you want it to be, without any chance of getting loose while you walk in them. If you don’t unlock the buckle by pulling it up or down, the strap will not move at all. I just want to make sure, since at first I was confused, and thought that I had a broken pair.
The possibility to pull the back strap and adjust the entire strap around the foot including the toes in the front, is one step ahead in the design. And I believe that this pair is even better than any other strap sandals I’ve had. The back strap is double secured with a softer pad in order to avoid any possible rubbing of the skin causing blisters.
Their sole is rubber made, and is one inch tall, well curved for better arch support, and slightly lowered towards the platform in the front. Teva does pay attention to the anatomical design, and I’ve never had a poorly designed sport sandal from them. The heel is secured with a Shock pad, and the entire footbed is especially designed to give you as much comfort as possible.
As the summer is almost gone, I’m going out for walking fast, or running slowly, wearing my Teva Women’s Zirra Sandals. I think they will be comfortable enough for those activities thanks to the rubber outsole and the water-channeling lugs. As a loyal customer of Teva shoes, I’m really happy that they are improving the design every season.
These Zirra Sandals are absolutely great, and I will recommend them to my friends. The Teva Women’s Zirra Sandals’ minimalist design proves that less is more. They may not be your typical woman’s sandals sequined with shiny things, but they are elegant, and comfortable at the same time, and that is just dandy.
