Oh, sure, I could see myself hiking down the trail with these...NOT! I'd break an ankle for sure  :p  Oh well. I'll just continue to be "unfashionable."

High-heeled hiking

Teva high heels
Hiking in the great outdoors is no excuse not to be fashionable. Perhaps that's why Teva made these high-heeled sandals that come in two colors and retail for $330.

I don't even see these on their website. So are they a privately made up thing and they put the Teva  label on them.?

If Teva really is making these, they should be ashamed.

I haven't worn heels in 20 years but back when I did I would have loved these. I used to climb trees and hike around the Cody area, the bighorns and Beartooths and wore either Dr Sholls or heels or barefeet. People always commented and warned me but 15-23 or so, I never listened to warnings.

Thank goodness they are not made by Teva.  I was concerned for the company for a moment!  

Nope you won't catch me wearing those.

Sometimes a footwear maker commissions a designer to come out with something weird (kind of like the defense dept and fighter jets).    Could be a one-off or novelty.

I had to check the date to see if it was posted on April Fool's!  Well, Crocs made a heel, so why not?

I love high heels, but they have to be cute or sexy - those are hideous (so are the Croc heels)  I feel the same way about wedge tennis shoes and flip flops.  Dumb!

I should have read the article a little bit better and looked at the brand before I accused Teva of making these  :D  

If I put these on, I doubt I could even take two steps before falling on my face, much less wearing them while hiking  :p

Sorry I probably added to the confusion.
Those sandalks were a co-production between Teva and Grey Ant.
If you look at the photo on post 10 you can see both the Grey Ant brand and just above that the Teva logo (the hand)
