Review: TevaSphere Trail Shoes

Recently, Teva reached out to me to see if I wanted to review a pair of their new trail shoes. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m running a trail half in a couple months, and wanted to get a pair of trail shoes anyway, so it was great timing. I wore a pair of TevaSphere Trail Shoes during my run when I got lost in the woods for an hour …

Nice and clean at the start. They have nice wide, stable soles. 

And, um, they were so comfortable that when I got lost in the woods, my feet were my last thought. How’s that? (Probably not what they had in mind.)

I didn’t intend to, but I tested the shoes in a variety of conditions:

  • On the gravel path
  • On the footpaths with jutting roots and rocks
  • Jumping or stepping over fallen trees
  • Walking across fallen trees
  • Trekking through mud
  • Trekking through standing water (from ankle- to knee-deep)
  • Trekking through water with a muddy bottom
  • Trekking through water with submerged branches

Still clean as I ventured off the trail

Held up well when navigating the elements

After the first time I trekked through some standing water, although it was only ankle-deep

So, the shoes held up pretty well, however they are not water-resistant. I would have preferred not to have to put them through such a rough first run, but they seem to be built for rugged conditions.

  1. I’ve been wearing Teva sandals since high school, but I had no idea that they made trail shoes! And at least you got something out of that trail run this weekend 🙂

  2. I’m amazed at how clean they are post-run. Either those shoes are unbelievable, or I am just a really dirty trail runner… lol

    Also, when I read your post about the woods, I realized that I used to run through there in high school all the time… did you see any burned-out cars???
