Rated 5 out of 5 by WoodTracker RE: Heads up on sizing!
Got this pair of great water/sport Teva Tanzas in brown color today. I tried them on in a LLBean store and it is a good thing that I read the reviews on these sandals before purchasing them. They do run BIG... about a size larger than your normal shoe size. So buyers, please beware on the sizing of these Teva Tanzas sandals. Other than the sizing, everything is perfect as you might expect from a LLBean sandals. The color brown is exactly as depicted on the web. Quality is second to none. Velcro straps are very sturdy and should last. Again, they do run big. Go down a size and you should be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dariuswind Nice fit and style
I just received these, and won't be wearing them for a while until it gets warmer - But I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they feel right out of the box. They're actually the best-fitting sandal I've ever worn.
Unlike many of the reviews I've read, they actually seem to be slightly SMALL in the sizing - I'm a 7 1/2, and the 8 just fits me. The only criticism I have at the moment is that the color of the straps is ORANGE, not brown as indicated in the description and the website photo. But it's kind-of fun and different, so I don't mind. I've never adjusted the rear straps on sandals before, but it came in very handy here, allowing my heel to rest further back so my toes wouldn't come too far forward.
I also want to give praise to Customer Service - The woman who helped me over the phone was very patient and helpful. She convinced me to try these, even though I hadn't liked the leather version at all. She was right, and so were all the great reviews for this sandal!

I bought these for my husband to replace a pair of slip on sandals that became too hard for him to pull on at the beach. We are going to Kauai next week and he is thrilled to have these comfy shoes. I read the remarks about size; he wears a 8 1/2 so to be safe, I ordered both the 8 and the 9. The nine was too long and the 8 was perfect.

Sorry to report that unlike prior sandals purchased from LLBean these have caused blisters on my feet. I have not been able to find a specific cause for the blisters, but they are annoying.

My husband never wore sandals until I purchase these a few years ago. When they broke (after 6 years of wearing them) he asked for another pair, he loves them. He claims that they are so comfortable (no breaking in period). They are adjustable to size for an added great fit. Highly recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pseudo Not bad if you wear socks with them
Yes, I know: wearing socks with sandals is just incredibly démodé. But when I wore these without socks I got several blisters on each foot from where the edges of the straps rubbed my skin. So, to the embarrassment of my family members when they are with me, I have worn these with cotton socks, and have walked miles in them that way in good comfort. Actually, a few strategically-placed band-aids will also do the job.
On the other hand, would it be so hard for the manufacturer to relieve the edges of their straps, perhaps with a bit of soft fabric, in order to prevent this problem (which I also have had with their flop-flops)?
