Teva Zymic Travel Sandals Review

For spring 2022, Teva has introduced a new sandal called the Zymic Sport Sandal. In true Teva form, it's a comfortable style made with recycled materials and easy-to-use hook and loop closures. It comes in several neutral colors, including the popular sesame, aloe (olive green), and black. The pastel light multi colorway is my favorite; it blends a colorblocked fashion element with a relaxed sporty look that makes it my new go-to sandal for pairing with cropped trousers, floral dresses, and distressed denim. In this footwear review, I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Teva Zymic's sizing, quality, and comfort.

Appearance and Performance

The Teva Zymic sandals have a chunky granny sandal look, with easy-to-adjust Velcro straps at the ankles and toes. The footbed has a speckled appearance, and it feels incredibly cushioned in the heel area. They are extremely comfortable (like sneakers), and well suited for long walks, camping, or long days on your feet. Compared to the popular Teva Hurricane XLT2 sandals, these do feel less rugged and but more bouncy. In terms of summer sports activities or hiking, I'd probably choose the Hurricane XLT2 over the Zymic because the Zymic's outsole does not have the same grip or traction that I rely upon. The shape of design on the outsole reminds me of river rocks. 

The Zymic is a great option for travel, as they are lightweight, versatile, and breathable. The main thing I don't like about the aesthetics of the Zymic is that the diagonal strap feels too flimsy, like grosgrain ribbon. It holds the foot in place, but compared to the Teva Hurricane Verge or the Hurricane XLT2, it feels slightly less durable. To me, the Zymic is more of a casual run-around-town sandal than a difficult-all-day hike sandal.

Quality and Sizing

Like other Teva footwear, these sandals are durable and thoughtfully constructed with features such as a breathable heel strap, recycled EVA midsole, a cushioned webbing upper, and MAX-COMF sole technology. They have nice arch support, the straps do not cause blisters, and they feel like well cushioned sneakers that are breathable. In terms of sizing, the Teva Zymic runs true to size for me. The footbed is generous enough to accommodate wide feet, while the straps allow for a custom fit.
