Teva Kids’ Original Universal Sandal
The first version of teva’s kids’ universal sandal was introduced in 1985. It was called “Ola” (or “Lilikoi”) and it consisted of two pieces of rubber with a plastic sole. These were made from the same material as the shoes that children wore at that time.
However, they did not have any kind of toe protection or ankle support like their adult counterparts had. They were designed for little feet.
In 1996, the company changed its design again. This time it was called “Kamaitachi” (or “Little Kitten”). It included several features that would make them suitable for adults: A heel strap, a removable outsole, and a molded arch support.
The outsole could be removed completely so that the foot could move freely around the shoe without any discomfort. The arch support was built into the sole itself.
It seems that these changes were done mainly because of the growing popularity of running shoes. Although these shoes are designed for running, they do not allow children to run freely all over the floor as easily as teva’s kids’ sandals allowed children to do. Also, there were some complaints about the outsole being too hard for little feet.
Therefore, in 1999 teva introduced its new version – “Nana”.
Named after the popular children’s song “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell, this version of the children’s sandal consisted of a one-piece molded rubber cleat detailing with a non-removable molded EVA footbed. The sole is very soft, and it provides extra cushioning under the heel and under the forefoot. It has two adjustable hook-and-loop fasteners to make the footbed more comfortable as it grows with the child.
It provides extra toe protection. This allows children to walk barefoot in the tevas without any discomfort. The mold used for this model consists of two colors – red and black.
Since many parents wanted their children to have a pair of these sandals, too, the company came up with a unisex version of this model. This one is called “Molokai”. It consists of a three-quarter-length footbed with extra toe protection and a non-removable molded footbed.
The most important detail that is different about this version is the heel strap, which is padded for extra comfort.
In 2003, the company decided to start making children’s tevas, too. Their first model was called “Kaia”. It is currently out of production, but it still remains one of the most popular children’s sandals ever made.
It consists of a non-removable molded footbed with a hook-and-loop ankle strap. The most important feature of this model is its single piece of rubber that encompasses the entire bottom of the sandal. This makes it possible for children to walk without discomfort. It is available in four different colors – purple, blue, green, and red.
Many other companies began making similar sandals, but teva always managed to stay ahead of the rest. They also offer other types of footwear that are suitable for children as well.
Children’s sandals are not all the company offers in the way of foot wear, but it is one of their most popular items. They have a large selection of winter boots, hiking boots, and other types of specialized footwear. Due to the nature of the company and its products, teva sandals have become very popular among hikers and campers all over the world.
It also has expanded into other markets, such as boating and other water-related sports. The company continues to grow and thrive, making it one of the most popular and recognizable in the world of footwear.

If you are a parent, you know that shoes play an important role in a child’s life. Kids outgrow their shoes at an alarming rate. When they finally find a shoe that fits and is comfortable, the last thing you want to do is to take that choice away from them.
Teva sandals for kids are a great choice because they carry them in so many cute colors and designs, and they can grow with your child. Kids aren’t always gentle on their clothing and shoes, and when you have to make that dreaded trip to the store to buy new ones, it can be an expensive nightmare. When you buy Tevas, you won’t have to do that because they are sturdy and durable.
In addition, kids get really excited about finding the shoe that mom and dad already know fits.
Yogi’s positive outlook and the happiness he brings to people of all ages is inspiring. No matter how down you’re feeling, if you listen to his music or read one of his books you will undoubtedly feel uplifted. Yogi is someone we can all learn a lesson from.
He gives us a lesson in humility with his down to earth personality and he teaches us all to “stay in the now.”
Yogi once said that he believes in destiny and in a higher power. He once said, “I don’t think I was supposed to go (back to the mountain) it was my time.” Perhaps his destiny was to share his light with everyone while he was here on earth.
Yogi would have turned 90 years old this year. Let’s celebrate what would have been his birthday with ways that we can stay present in the now just like he did.
Yogi always said he loved and accepted everyone no matter what. So, let’s all try a little harder to be like him and be accepting of others. Let’s not judge people based on their race, religion, or sexual orientation.
Instead, let’s learn from the mistakes of the past and embrace all people for who they are because we’re all human and we all have feelings.
There are so many issues going on in the world today. Instead of focusing on all the things that divide us, let’s focus on all the things that unite us as humans. Let’s stop worrying about things that don’t matter and cherish the time that we do have here on earth.
Yogi once said, “This too shall pass.” This is so true. The bad times will eventually turn to good again.
The hard times will eventually come to an end, and the good times are even better when you’ve had to work for them.
Yogi Bell is still missed by many all these years after his death, but his legacy will live on forever.
He once said, “That’s what music is. It transcends all languages, all ages, all races, all boundaries. It’s a uniting force of all humanity.”
So true, Yogi. So true.
To learn more about the life and times of Yogi and to see his legendary Light of the World stage, you can visit his museum in Dunbar, West Virginia.
Stay tuned for part 2 of this series, when I will talk about my personal memories of seeing the Light of the World stage for the first time.
Until then, here is one of my favorite songs by the band, The Tams. It was the first song I ever heard by them and still remains one of my favorites.
Yogi always said, “Give your friends the finger… but give them the middle one.” So I’ll leave you with that, and a middle finger salute…
just for you, Yogi!
Stay glorious, my friends.
