Well, I have to qualify this. I bought the version with a closed toebox which they don't make any more, because I got tired of banging my toes up all those years in my Tevas.
Without a doubt, the Toachis are the most comfortable sandal I've ever owned, bar none. I can wear them endlessly without getting tired or sore feet. Feels like I was born with them on. I like the way they look, too. I like them so much, I bought 2 pairs when they went on sale end of season.
Now, having raved about them, I have to report that I just got back from a long walk looking for the sole that fell off. I don't know if the glue is the problem, or the design (2 piece heel and forefoot), but the soles fall off.
I have tried regluing them with contact cement, then Barge cement. Same result. I am about to use Shoe Goo and, if that fails, I will try neoprene cement.
I don't mind fixing them now and then really, but I have had TEVAS since they began, many pairs. These are my favorite but they are also the only ones that ever fell apart before they were worn out. What is wrong????

Bought these sandals and wore them the first time, but took them off as they squeaked like crazy. You'd have thought "Squidward' was coming down the hall, they were so noisy!
My son wore them on vacation to Maui and the fore and aft soles delaminated on both sandals.
I contacted Teva with my dilemma and as awesome as they are, they sent me my choice of replacement sandals (Terra Fi3's). They were here in 2 days and I couldn't be happier.

A very comfortable shoe, but completely fell apart after less than 30 days use. Rubbish shoes with terrible build quality - do not buy!

If your sandals go squishitty-squash for miles after a river crossing, perhaps it's time to look at the Teva Men's Toachi Sandals. Water actually drains through a series of ports in the midsoles and mesh screens on these water sandals so you don't have to put up with water-logged soles. The ports also allow air to flow through for more foot ventilation when you're on land. Neoprene lining softens the straps, while toe bumpers on the Toachi Sandals let you slowly inch your way across fast-moving rivers without stubbing your toes on unseen rocks. Spider Rubber on the outsoles of these Teva sport sandals grip wet and dry terrain.
