If you are looking for the "Teva style" strappy sandals, I would recommend Chaco simply because they have less seams that rub, can be re-soled, and have better arch support.

Where do you find Chacos? I looked all over and did not see them anywhere. Can they only be ordered online?

My husband wears black Teva "Terra Fi" sandals every day. He loves them.

I read somewhere online that Teva's smell after wearing them awhile. Has had any "odor" issues with his Teva's?

I was looking at buying a pair like this:

Teva Spoiler Classic at Zappos.com (http://www.zappos.com/product/7373827/color/20 - broken link)

Would they be worth buying?

Try specialty outdoor/camping shops or REI. They don't sell their shoes to sport stores, etc. REI is the only national chain I know of that has them, but you can check chacousa.com for a list of dealers.

Also, their sizes are VERY consistent... So if you can find a place that has any style Chaco you can order different colors/styles online if you want. Sometimes Zappos will have their last years colors for a bit cheaper.

They seem to be pretty comfortable and have some arch support.

I am going to buy another pair or two. What do you all think of this leather slide? Never thought I'd consider a Dr. Scholl's product but I tried these on and they seemed comfortable.

Tevas are pretty cool as well. I have not had issues with them, though Keen are a first choice. You can find Keen at Nordstrom if there's one near you, or you can search on their site for a dealer. You can also get them online, but if you're not familiar with them, it might be best to see a pair first.

Shoes – KEEN

hahaha... funny you mention, yes he's had them get pretty stinky.

However, all he has to do is about once a month, soak them in a mixture of water and dish detergent (they're waterproof) and either dry them in the clothes dryer or air dry, and they'll be fine. Apparently the smell is due to dead skin getting caught in the grooves on the bottom of the shoe... kind of gross, haha.

I have a pair of these. I have a hard time finding sandals that are comfortable and these are great. I can wear them all day and never have problems. My closet holds many pair of sandals in good condition that I cannot wear.

I will check out the Keens. Haven't worn the Teva's yet so I can still take them back if I like the Keens better. Don't have nordstrom around here but they are on zappos.com. They have free returns so I might try that out. Is there a certain type that you recommend? There are quite a few different ones.

heh... Does he wear them often? I wouldn't anticipate wearing them more than a few times per month so I figure maybe I can get away with cleaning them less often.
