Tevas are very 1990
"I was once dumped by a woman because she didn't like the fact that I wore Tevas one day. This was my girlfriend that I was with for six months, too. It lasted for about two days after that. We’d be out, and having fun, and then she’d snap out of the blue and be like 'I can’t believe you wore those shoes yesterday.'
"Finally, when we were on a double date, I made an off-handed joke about them, and she asked if I had thrown them out yet. When I said no, she got up and told me to take her home, and we broke up that night. The best part, though, is that we went to the coast with a couple friends the day after… each of us had good friends from out of town who we wanted to see, so we both stubbornly went anyway. I wore those Tevas the whole time, even when I slept." -- anonymous Thrillist staffer
