I was using Teva sandals ever since – even my son grew up in them, and we still keep the cute smallest size in honor.
I first used the Sunkosi with neoprene socks, pretty comfortable solid watershoes if you need to be comfortable on the beach as well -
plus kept the Open Toachi sandals (they sent them in light blue…) as a backup in the boat.
Later when my partner was escorting me for 6 weeks with the van I afforded to carry a pair of TEVA Ossagon hiking boots which served me nicely around the van in a bit more chilly climate in the south of Australia. Solid and stylish!
I could use later at home nicely the TEVA Hydron for running and every day’s jobs, which I really liked! Stylish and comfortable!
I also got the Proton 3 watershoes, which I mainly used later for my Greenlandstyle rolling, as the sole is so nicely soft!
But the sandals I was eventually really using in the (mostly) hot Australia were a single pair of TEVA Pretty Rugged Nylon in my favorite color *black*- loving to be stylish all black I couldn’t have done without them – on and off the water! Sometimes I used them with neoprene socks, but mostly barefoot.
