Teva Tanza Sandal - Men's
TevaTanza Sandal - Men's

Born on land; thrives in water.

Tarzan was a pretty wild dude, but even he would have appreciated the Teva Men’s Tanza Sandal. Inspired by amphibians, this sandal is made to go from land to water and back again. A super-grippy outsole sticks to anything, wet or dry, and the nylon webbed and neoprene/foam upper forms a durable, comfortable bond to your foot.

  • Teva’s Universal Strapping System secures your foot with three adjustment points for maximum foot hold and comfort for activities
  • Spider Rubber sole provides the exceptionally durable, no-slip grip on wet or dry surfaces
  • Shoc Pad in the heel cup transfers energy throughout the entire footbed during impact and rebounds during your stride
  • Microban technology uses the natural anti-microbial properties of zinc to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus

Great sandals

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

i bought these for my husband. He states that these are the most comfortable sandals he has ever had.

The perfect river sandal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I got these for the river and all of my water summer activities around here in Utah . They are awesome on all terrain from sand to rocks and every thing In between. The size is also right on point and match my normal street shoe sizing.

Sweet Sandal!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 13

These arrived quickly and I loved them from the start. True to size. I have a narrow foot but the sandals fit perfect with the adjustable snaps. Excellent for use in or near water. I would highly recommend these sandals.

Straps were digging into my skin...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7

I loved the color, but the design and location of the straps were not an ideal fit for me! I ordered them back in Nov. but did not wear them until my NYE road trip to CA. After the first 1-2 days just driving, areas where the straps were against my feet were red and then beginning to get scraped! I l took a day off and then wore them in Sunny So. Ca... but was not able to last very long! I think the strap material was too short, did not cover or overlap enough to protect sensitive areas of my feet. Regretfully, I made the decision to return them... I am glad to know that so many other folks did NOT have this problem with these cool looking sandals. Customer service was awesome as I sent them back after 30 days, was willing to get store credit as I will be purchasing something else for sure and soon! :)

Nice Chaco Alternative

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

All they hype may be Chaco but these are just as quality. The cushioning is great for long hikes or just running around town. Being fully synthetic, you would expect some odor over time but that has never happened.

Nice sandals

    I think it's comfortable to use besides the color and the design was awesome. this is really great.

    Excellent Sandal

    Super comfortable. The grippy soles make these a perfect choice for float trips.

    Excellent Sandal

    I ordered a Pair of Teva Sandals on Sunday Afternoon about 2pm. I received confirm & tracking number within hours. Today is Tuesday and the Sandals were at my door when I came home from work. They were exactly as described and are in a New Teva Box. I could not be more pleased or impressed with the execution of my order. Thanks BackCountry!

    Do these have non marking soles? they are...

    Do these have non marking soles? they are for a boating trip.

    Also- I live in Salt Lake- can I pick these up at the warehouse?

    Hey Sandra,

    I checked this out and the majority of inventory for this product is in our Virginia warehouse, however some sizes are in SLC. Hop on our LiveHelp chat service or give us a call to determine if the size you need is available in SLC.

    Highly recommended classic

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a classic design that's been around a while - for good reason. There are three points of adjustment. But once you have it dialed in you can slip in and out of the sandal quickly and easily just loosening and tightening the back heel strap. It has great traction and good for hopping on rocks near water. Super comfortable too. A great boating sandal and good for hikes away from the river. I would say it runs slightly large - but not by much. I wear an 11.5 in most shoes and often size up in sandals. But a 12 is way to big and the 11 fits just right.


      These sandals are great! Built well and truly do grip slippery rocks while fishing or getting in and out of a boat. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a comfortable lightweight sandal, esp. if you like water sports.


        Worth the extra money over the entry level Teva's. The sole is noticeably softer and gets better traction. I used these on a six day canoe trip in the boundary waters and had intended to change into different shoes for the portages but most of the time I just used my sandals and I had no issues.


          Pretty lightweight, grippy sandals. I've worn em canoin for a number of years, until I sliced the right front strap most of the way through on something in my trunk. Now I wear them around the rock gym. . Whatever, I got a good season out of them, and I wore the heck out of them. In the canoe/yak three days a week at least for a summer. Not a bad deal. I'd definitely buy them again for a pair of something to wear in and out of water, if I did't more shoes than most girls.

          Good and attractive for a sports sandal

            My husband really liked these sandals. He loved the color and design (I bought the covert green). They did fit a bit on the small side for him, but it looks like they fit just perfectly to me, so it might just be because he likes things larger. He still wears them anytime dress or tennis shoes aren't required. We'll see how they hold up to his wear.

            Any update on how they wore?
