I love Tevas.
I have a pair of the original sandals with the ankle straps.
I don’t know how old they are, but it’s more than 10 years.
(MizFit note: Ive known him for 19. I cant recall a time he didnt have these shoes…)
I still wear them all the time.
I remember when Teva stopped making this style.
I was devastated – not knowing that Tevas are so hardy that I would never need to buy another pair.
(MizFit note: I also recall this. There was crying involved. Mine. I wanted a matching pair. A lot. That day my hopes were dashed.)
I also remember when I thought I’d lost my Teva sandals in a move.
(MizFit note: I first read this as saying he thought he lost them in a movie. I spent a few minutes pondering why he’d have taken his Tevas off in a movie until I realized that WASNT what it said.)
I was inconsolable that I would never be able to replace them – finding them was a glorious day.
So I was very excited when Mizfit told me about a new Teva lace-up shoe.
(MizFit note: love is patient. love is kind. love lets love get new shoes even though she kinda wants the Teva Fuse-Ions too.)
I really like the way they look – very stylish.
(MizFit note: HIGH PRAISE. Ren Man may now have a grown-up job, but he spent years selling fancy men’s clothing in NYC).
They are also very comfortable, but I prefer wearing socks with them as I found the material around the toes to be a little abrasive on my bare feet.
They provide good support and don’t slide around when youre running around. (…chasing a Tornado of a girl).
They are made for water and are great for a romp in the river. The only problem is that they look so good I don’t to get them dirty by wearing them in a muddy swamp.
I giggled when I saw the Teva Fuse-Ions were billed as: “The highest performing water shoe you would gladly wear to the bar.”
Given our lifestyle these shoes are PR-perfection.
The water we’d most likely to be covered in comes from water BALLOONS or a small creek & the drains in the Teva Fuse-Ions keep Ren Man’s new shoes light and non-sloggy.
The bars we shimmy up to these days more likely proffer PROTEIN SHAKES than PROTEIN ‘TINIS (is that a thing? should we make that a thing? did I just share my million dollar idea?!) and Ren Man has definitely worn his new Fuse-Ions there.
And he LOVES THEM.
FTC the shoes were free. The fact I couldnt help but jump in during the husband’s guest post is all my own issue.
