Tevas for walking the World

Anyone tried the different Teva sandals for the kind of walking we all do at WDW? I'm looking at "pretty rugged 2" but "hurricane is about half the price. Then, there's open toachi, kayenta, west water, and more. Can anyone who's tried more than 1, recommend one over the others? I won't be wearing them every day (have Keens, crocs, runners) but want to be able to if I feel like it so they have to be comfortable and not make blisters or feet/legs aches too much.

Thanks for the help.

DH and I both wear Teva Mush flip flops to the parks. They are more comfortable than any other type of shoe, IMO. They also dry out quickly.

I ADORE my Teva Dozers for the parks. I recently bought the Toachi and have been wearing them on "Chub Club" walks, about 3 miles a day, they are also wonderful. My daughter got the open toachi's and she loves them.

I also suggest Keen newport h2s. I always have a rotation of shoe's at the parks.

Thanks Totally Tink and RainbowWit,

I have the Keen H2s but wanted others to be able to rotate. The only time I had a blister problem so far was the trip I bought Chacos for. I was tihnking the Teva Kayenta and Calista were too flat. Hadn't even thought of mush but I do love a good flip flop. I'll get some of those too then. Wow if Toachis work for 3 mile walks that really says something! I like that they have neoprene like the Keens.

Thanks!

I wore my Teva Mush flops for the 5K Race for the Cure this past weekend. There are no blisters, heel problems, or back problems to report! Honestly, I probably walked almost 5 miles (the race, to/from our parking place, around the vendor area) total in less than three hours and the shoes were fabulous! I am definitely a Teva convert.

I just ordered 3 pair of Tevas last Friday AM and they shipped out last Friday PM. I love the Teva flip flops and have lots of different colors, so I decied to try the Teva sport sandals.
I ordered the Teva Dozer 2, the Teva Toachi (closed toe) and the Teva Pretty Rugged. I hope I like them as much as the mush flip flops.

I ordered from Sierratradingpost...had a 25% off email, plus already reduced sale price, with no shipping.

I'll check back in a couple of days and give ya a "comfort" update.

I have a pair of Pretty Rugged all leather and a pair of Hurricanes. I wear nothing but my Pretty Ruggeds when at WDW. The support is far better for an entire day of walking. I tried the Hurricanes once and by the end of the night, regretted it. The next day, I went back to my Ruggeds. I waterproof my Ruggeds every Spring so I have no worries about taking them on water rides. I've had them for years and they're still going strong.

OK, last night I ordered Keen H2 Newports for kids $49 (size 6 youth for my 5.5 or 6 women's foot) and Teva pretty rugged nylon brown gingham (not my first color choice but it's a closeout) $44 from REI.com. Total shipping is free if you order a teva product with it. Not sure how different the kid Keens will feel; heel and ankle are slightly different.

You all are great!

Well I hope it's OK. I just posted a store. I hope if I did it wrong, that mods will forgive me and chalk it up to ignorance, not rule-breaking.

I know there is a rule against advertising, I'm just not sure this falls under that category...

I can't compare with the other types of Tevas, but on our last trip I took my west waters, crocs, and sneakers. The Tevas were the only ones that did not give me blisters and I kept coming back to them. They are light and dry quickly.
