A Teva by any other name would smell as bad

What kind of sandals can I buy as a non-stinky alternative to Tevas?

I love my Tevas. They're incredibly comfortable! By godDAMN do they stink, and make my feet stink. It helps for a little while each time I clean them, but not for long enough.
(It's not just a matter of needing new Tevas - the smell sets in really quickly even when they're new. No other shoe does this to me, so I'm confident that the Tevas are at fault, not my feet. And anyways, Tevas are famously stinky
I want to find a brand of sandals that I can buy and wear as my default warm-weather shoes that won't smell so bad. My important criteria: comfortable flats, no toe thong, minimal foot coverage (open-air toe-wiggling is essential, so no typical keens!), with a back strap so I don't feel like they're about to fall off
(I'm female-bodied but will also happily wear men's shoes if I can find them in my size.)
What are my dream sandals?
