TevaSphere Review

This post is long overdue.  Welcome to my pregnancy brain world, right?

About a month and a half ago, a representative from Onlineshoes.com contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying out a new Teva shoe, the Women's TevaSphere.  I'm a fan of Onlineshoes.com (what's not to love about a shoe store that has a million different options, free shipping, and free returns for up to 365 days - that's customer service!). And I'm already a fan of Teva - see this tan line beauty? 
I live in my Teva Mush sandals from the time it gets warm enough until my piggies are freezing. So this seemed to be a perfect fit.

I was told that I could chose between the TevaSphere Trail or the TevaSphere Speeds, and then pick the color.  The options were pretty awesome.  I went with the Speeds, simply because they were a little lighter (and I'm a girl and liked the look just a little better).  From the Onlinshoes.com website, this is what I learned about the gems before receiving them:

"Be prepared for any terrain in the Teva TevaSphere Speed athletic shoe. Streamlined for high performance and a sleek look, this women's trail shoe boasts a synthetic and mesh upper for lightweight, breathable comfort from start to finish. The TevaSphere outsole, featuring Spider Original rubber for grip, has a spherical heel with a support pod for stability that doesn't add too much weight. Next time you hit the trail for a run, tackle an obstacle course or just head out for an afternoon stroll, bring along your new favorite workout partner, the Teva TevaSphere Speed hiking shoe.

  • Synthetic and mesh upper
  • TevaSphere
  • Textile lining
  • Weight: 7.7 oz
I ended up going with the Lunar Rock color.  Good choice!  The shoes came about a week later (they didn't have my size at first, but that was quickly resolved), only to find out that these shoes run a little big.  I ended up needing a half size smaller than I usually go with.  Got my exchange and was off.

This is pretty cool.  If you can't read it, it says, " Congratulations... you just helped Teva clean a river or beach somewhere in the world.  Confused? Don't be. For every pair of footwear we sell, we work with non-profits to clean a foot of shoreline.  We call it A PAIR FOR A FOOT."

Now I'm not really running much these days, but we've been walking trails like it's my business so I've gotten a lot of use out of the shoes.  Let me tell you, they are comfy.  They seem to be a little more narrow than I'm used to, but it's nothing uncomfortable and actually just feel good and snug.  The half size down is a perfect fit for me.  I love the color of the lunar rock - it's kind of a grayish color with accents in yellow and green.  They are cute kick around shoes, as well as trail shoes.   I feel like they offer good support throughout my foot and the gripping on the bottom definitely makes it a trail shoe. Once this baby comes, I'm hoping to get some good trail runs in them as they seem very light weight and breathable.

I couldn't be happier with the shoe.  Teva has done things right with the Women's TevaSphere line and as always, OnlineShoes.com came through for me!

(Please note that these shoes were sent to me free of charge and that the opinions expressed in this post are solely my opinion.)

Yay for free stuff!! It sounds like onlineshoes.com is a pretty good company to exchange everything for free. Although those Teva's have a weird footprint, I bet they are pretty comfy!

(Your tan lines aren't too shabby either.)
