These shoes are durable, waterproof, and really comfortable. I used these shoes on a daily basis for about two years. While they now look quite beat up, they are still almost as comfortable when I first bought them and still waterproof.
- Lacks stability
There are very many things to like about Teva's Sear eVent. The most appealing feature is that they are an effective waterproof shoe that breathes very well due to its eVent lining.
The shoes were very comfortable right out of the box and they have remained comfortable even after extensive use.The outsole of this shoe is very thick, which helps absorb a lot of impact. While the shoe was very comfortable, the thick outsole gave the shoe an elevated feeling and increased the potential of rolling an ankle.
These are the most durable and versatile shoes that I have ever owned. I have used them almost daily for about 2 years. I have used them around town, on multi-day backpacking trips, and on the occasional rainy day run. Consequently, they now show quite a bit of wear; however, they are still incredibly comfortable and waterproof.

Nice shoe with a lot of "sole"
- Solid construction
- Good fit
- Beefy outsoles
- Outsoles maybe a tad to beefy
Picked these up in the black/red color with no real regrets. I have a moderately wide size 11 foot and these fit pretty well, though they run a little narrow and it took some breaking in to get 'em feeling just right — but no need to upsize for me.
They feature a thick, beefy outsole that promises to last a long time and have a seriously good tread pattern. They also offer really good support for both the bottoms of the feet and the sides, cradling the foot nicely without feeling too tight or uncomfortable.
They feature Teva's removable "Mush Infused" insert, which isn't very thick and feels a lot like most other inserts, so I don't find anything special or unique about it. The eVent waterproof lining has performed well and I haven't noticed any problems with the shoes not breathing sufficiently.
Overall these are a good shoe. They're suitable for outdoor pursuits, especially given the waterproofing, and will double as casual wear just fine, and they are comfortable and well-constructed.
I'm bumping them down one star because there's just something about them aesthetically that doesn't thrill me. The really thick outsoles are a plus, but they are so thick that the shoe ends up looking just a tad odd despite an otherwise attractive design.
Not a big deal and I would still recommend these as a quality outdoor shoe.
