Teva’s Mush sandals have long been my flip flops of choice. Their squishy comfort is unmatched as you seemingly float above it all on air. But, once the weather turns, the Mush gets relegated to the garage, but you can now switch to the new Teva Mush Frio to tide you over until Summer.
Teva Mush Frio Features:
- 7mm Mush EVA foam
- Lightweight synthetic and canvas uppers
- Tongue-free design
- Colors: Black, Brown, Dune, Moonrock, Teva Blue

Teva Mush Frio Lace Canvas Shoes Review
Admittedly, I’m a huge fan of Teva’s Mush sandals, so when I saw the new Mush Frio line, I was stoked to be able to wear the Mush year-round. Upon arrival, I just had to slip them on. The Mush sandals are great and the new Mush Frio Lace Canvas shoes are a phenomenal extension of the Mush franchise. I’ve enjoyed wearing the Mush Frio around town and in the office. The styling of the Dune color is subdued enough to blend in with jeans and remain under the radar.
As with all Mush footwear, the beauty is in the super-soft EVA foam. This foam is so squishy, it makes it feel like you’re walking on air. In sandals, that squishy-comfort is amazing and it remains equally-comfortable in the Mush Frio’s. But, I will say this… in a shoe, it feels as if you can overdrive the Mush just slightly, which is something that I never really felt I could do in the sandals. It’s only really noticeable running on hard surfaces.
The uppers are equally comfortable with a tongue-less design that cradles your entire foot in seamless comfort. Lacing them up provides just the right amount of tightness to keep the shoes in place. The Mush Frio Lace Canvas shoes are freakishly-light — adding to the overall comfort since it almost feels as if you’re not wearing shoes at all.
Keep in mind that the outsoles are not rubber, but a different density of EVA foam. As such, they don’t have the most phenomenal grip — especially in variable terrain. I’d keep these relegated to in-town duty where the breathability will keep you comfortable even on the warmest of days.
Good Mush Frio
- The Mush is oh-so-comfy
- Very lightweight
- Gives you that classic Mush with more all-season protection
- Casual styling is at home anywhere
- Excellent breathability
- Tongue-free design for foot-wrapping comfort
- Unstructured uppers fold flat for travel
Bad Mush Frio
- As shoes, you can max out the Mush
- Little water repelency
- Traction can be sketchy — these outsoles are not made for all-terrain
Bottom Line: Teva Mush Frio Lace Canvas
The Mush Frio’s are at home for office or around-town duty and the collapsible, unstructured design compresses down flat for minimal luggage space when traveling.
