Teva Original Sandal: An Awesome Summer Shoe!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Teva. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer is fast approaching (hooray!) and with summer comes lots of fun outdoor activities. Some of my favorite summer activities are music festivals. I love discovering new music and gathering outside with crowds of people just having a good time. As tempting as it is to want to dress “super cute” for these events, you also have to make sure you’re comfortable because these festivals tend to drag on for the entire day—and you’ll be on your feet the majority of it. So, naturally, you need some comfortable wear for your feet. Of course, you also want to stay stylish! That’s where Teva Original Sandals come in.

Although these sandals have actually been around for quite some time (1984!) I’m only recently learning about them, which is exciting because they are the type of shoe I'm looking for this summer. Their original sandals come in a variety of colors so you’re getting the “cuteness” factor in there, but also comfort, which is the most important part when choosing your summer shoes. They are not only great for music festivals, but other summer activities—some being amusement park trips, sight seeing in your favorite city, taking the kids to the pool and park all day (shout out to my fellow nannies and moms!) and the list goes on. 

Looking through the different color options they offer for their Original Sandal, I had a hard time choosing what my favorite was. Finally, I went with the Peaks Teal because I love the pattern and feel they can easily match a lot of my wardrobe (but the white ones were a close second!)

You can tell just by looking at their design on Teva’s website—these shoes are made to last. Which is so important when choosing your favorite summer shoes. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve broken a cheap flip flop and had to walk around sliding my foot around for hours! Teva Original Sandals can be purchased from their website but are also available at Zappos.

Teva is the official footwear for the Bonnaroo Music Festival, which is great because for a festival with such a great line-up, people will definitely be needing good footwear to make it through that weekend! If you’re planning on attending Bonnaroo, or any music festival this summer, here are some of my tips for making the most of your time and having the best experience:

1. Dress comfortably. Obviously, this includes comfortable shoes (and may just be the most important factor!) but it also includes dressing appropriately for the weather that day, so make sure you check the weather beforehand. 
2. Plan ahead for the day. It’s always good to have a plan when attending such events. You want to make sure you’re prepared and ready to go, so make sure to check what times your favorite performers are playing!
3. Have your phone fully charged before heading out. You want this for several reasons. First of all, if you’re going to be with a group—you don’t want your phone to die and suddenly you’re in the middle of a huge festival by yourself with no clue about your friends’ whereabouts. Secondly, your phone is the perfect tool for picture taking! Of course, you should experience the festival without being on your phone the whole time, but taking a few pictures to remember the day won’t hurt anyone.
