Teva is flexing its muscle in the closed toe shoe category with a Fall ’17 collection rich with waterproof leather boots, water shoe-inspired sneakers and versatile mocs.
The brand presented its Fall ’17 line in New York on Friday, placing an emphasis on the new Ember Moc.
Touted as a “post-hike” shoe, the new silhouette is likely to also find an audience on campuses and with city dwellers looking for their next comfortable shoe to run errands in. The style features a collapsible heel, quilted puffer upper and cozy knit trim.
The men’s and women’s shoe, which will retail for $70, draws inspiration from a vintage outdoor color palette, including teal, mustard, olive and berry. A coordinating sandal, the Original Universal Puff, incorporates the same materials and triangular pattern.
Teva updates its women’s lifestyle collection, Arrowood, with new takes on the De La Vina and Foxy boot styles. A new Chelsea boot, offered in rich shades of berry and a fresh take on tan, boasts a double gore slip-on for effortless wear. The new De La Vina Dos Tall provides a tall boot option, designed with a flared calf shape and medial gore adjustment for comfort. The Foxy Lace adds a biker-meet-hiker vibe with a chunky heel and hardware.
The brand takes a turn toward sneaker boots with the Arrowood Mid Premier for men. The brand is also introducing sneaker boot styles designed in Japan (and already in the Japanese market) with a neoprene upper and webbing.
Teva honors its water shoe heritage with the Arrowood Swift Lace, a pared down sneaker for men and women with speed lacing. The brand aims to pitch this silo to the fashion-forward style influencer.
