I know footwear pretty well. I spent over 24 years as an Infantry Marine hiking with heavy loads on my back in just about every “clime and place.” Good quality footwear for the Traveler, Adventurer or Wanderer is a must! After I find, and wear a great pair of footwear till it’s about worn to pieces, I usually say, “I should have bought two pairs, because now that model is discontinued…” Before “Teva” discontinues the “Mens Riva Leather Event” model shoes, I will try to buy another pair. The Riva Leather Event shoes are really, really comfortable and very well made! I think at $140.00 (REI price) they are some of the most expensive footwear I have ever purchased (excluding “Gore Tex” Boots), but I am completely satisfied with them! I recently looked at the “Teva” website and they apparently only have them in “bouillon” or (brown) now, but the pair I bought at REI are green and black (see picture below).
