Summer in Australia is synonymous with 2 things; BBQ's and BEACH! #amiright?! Ok, we know there's a whole lot more because just like you, we too LOVE summer exploring; hiking, inland lake swims, waterfall exploring, picnics, boating, rock hopping, urban adventuring ~ whatever it is, it's imperative to keep cool, because we're one heck of a hot country!
The TEVA sandal was the ORIGINAL sport sandal and they've gone from being all about comfort and action to being seen as necessary fashion footwear too. They're not only the best summer footwear, they were also on the runway at New York Fashion Week! (You can read more about that here)

They must be stylish and comfortable at the same time.
They must be durable and hard-wearing - only the best quality for our discerning customers.
So now you know our recommendations, let us tell you why you need to choose TEVA!
The Teva brand is amazing on many levels (not just because they look good!) but in particular, their technology is second to none and their environmental ethos is admirable.
Teva takes energy consumption seriously, and are hyper-vigilant about integrating climate change measures into their policies and planning.
We all know that the fashion industry is the largest contributor of carbon emissions outside of the fossil-fuel industry and Teva have moved the majority of their production out of China (who rely heavily on coal) to hydroelectricity-savvy Vietnam, which results in minimising their environmental footprint.
