Best sandals I've ever owned, hands down. I wore these hard for almost 13 years before the soles separated for the second time and could not be repaired. Incredibly durable and comfortable. I've tried on so many pairs of Chacos but none of them even come close to the Teva Greckos.
I just stumbled across the name of this model after YEARS of searching, not that it probably matters at this point. I think they've been out of production for many years. I believe I bought mine around 2005 or 2006.
PLEASE, someone, anyone, let me know if they find anything that comes close to the Teva Grecko. I wish I loved Chacos, but there are so many reasons that they fall short of the Grecko (overly contoured heel, heavy weight, hard footbed, etc. etc.).

Materials: nylon, plastic, rubber
Break-in Period: none
Excellent sandals. The forefoot strap threads through the sole and loops over the foot (a la Chaco sandals), which means you need only one buckle to adjust the strap, so there is less hardware to break or chafe. The strap is made of tubular webbing, which is strong and soft. And the system holds securely. Your sandals won't get pulled off by strong currents or deep mud.
The anti-odor treatment seems to work well. I never had a problem with stinky feet.
I wore these for three years nearly daily, except for snowy days. They lasted well. One has developed a crack in the outsole, which is now worn thin. But other than that, the outsole has not worn through anywhere (but I have a fairly neutral foot strike).
