The new style showcases Gold’s take on the classic Original Universal sandal, with a unique geometric pattern inspired by the free-wheeling days of youth.

The annual Teva Artist Series collection celebrates the spirit of creative expression with artists who are bold and unafraid to take design risks.

“Benny Gold’s unwavering sentiment for doing what you love and are passionate about in life made him a perfect collaborator for Teva’s Artist Series collection,” said Erika Gabrielli, Sr. Marketing Director at Teva. “Gold’s independent spirit, visionary design and nostalgia for the brand are transparent in the final product of this collection and demonstrate our belief in the importance of true artistic creativity and individuality in any and all forms.” 

The sandals themselves are playful, their straps adorned with a bold red and blue glider pattern. The print was inspired by movement, with the shoes embodying a momentum that propels the wearer forward.

In addition to the exciting graphic, the Benny Gold Teva Sandal features an adjustable webbing upper, hook and loop closure, a soft leather footbed and a durable rubber outer sole. It retails for $60.

As with past Artist Series collections, this collaboration will help to support the next generation of artists and creators with 10% of each shoe purchase going to P.S. ARTS, an organization dedicated to providing arts education for kids.

“When I was in high school one of my first jobs was at a shoe store where I sold a lot of Teva sandals,” said Benny Gold. “I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Teva, so when they approached me about partnering with them to design a limited-edition sandal, it felt like everything came full circle from my childhood.”

Along with the sandal, the Benny Gold collection also includes a long sleeve tee, a pair of socks and a limited edition print of the glider pattern.

Audemars Piguet, which has headquarters in Le Brassus, Switzerland, was founded in 1875 in Vallée de Joux by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. Just like its peers Rolex and Patek Philippe, the brand is known for superb craftsmanship and simply its name in general, with many people buying it as their first watch when they come into money.

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
