Grand Canyon River Guide Mark Thatcher started Teva Sandals when he noticed many of his
clients were wearing water-logged sneakers. Determined to find a sandal that was supportive
of an active lifestyle, he created a prototype for Teva based on his experience on the river.
Little did he know Teva Sandals would become so popular, selling out immediately from the
back of his van.
He called his business Teva (pronounced "Teh' -vah"), which means nature in Hebrew. The
hand symbol logo is a Hopi symbol that stands for "friendship" and "water". These are the
foundations for the water shoes now known all around the globe as Teva Sandals.
Not only is Teva one of the most innovative leaders in the sport sandal industry, they are
also committed to providing positive contributions to the world. Teva Footwear incorporates
environmentally friendly technology in their sandals and packaging- this includes recycled
straps and webbing, recycled rubber, and specially formulated anti-odor and anti-bacterial
devices that are safe for the environment.
Teva Sandals are the icons of water sandals. Teva is recognized globally and are known for
their quality and comfort. For the best selection in Teva Sandals on the web, come shop with
