Teva Debuts New Sandal Collaboration with Designer Benny Gold

teva sandals

Iconic sandals brand Teva has launched the fourth iteration of its Artist Series collection featuring San Francisco-based street wear designer Benny Gold.

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.

Dior is one of the biggest names in all the fashion world. While Christian Dior was initially offered the role of designing for Phillipe et Gaston in Paris in 1946, he refused to design for someone else and instead decided to start a brand under his own name. That tenacity and belief in himself paid off for him as his brand became one of the most recognizable in the entire fashion world. Included in those recognizable products is the Dior bag.

On the other side of fashion is function. Mystery Ranch has led the way in providing backpacks for the men on the front lines of the battlefield, forest fires, or exploration. The company has had one focus since its inception: minimize the burden on your back so you can retain more power, more strength, and of course, more stamina. Whether a soldier, first responder, or explorer, its packs are designed to be as tough as you are.
