Teva, a division of Deckers Brands, has teamed with Opening Ceremony—the brands’ fourth collab overall and first since 2016. This go ’round will feature three limited-edition styles in five colorways that combine Teva’s signature designs with Opening Ceremony’s forward-thinking aesthetic.
Inspired by urban explorers, the collab takes an unexpected approach to iconic styles. Each shoe has a futuristic feel, incorporating cues from current trends of shine and metallics that partners Opening Ceremony’s passion for expression and Teva’s versatile, utilitarian aesthetic. The collection will release in two drops from March to April 2020.
The first of three drops, the Opening Ceremony x Teva Hurricane Sock, is a hybrid model that takes the socks-with-sandals trend to new heights. Its upper, fully knitted from Lurex yarns, is engineered for a sock-like fit, with adjustable straps that allow for customization. While it wears like a sneaker, it also features easy hook-and-loop closures with recycled polyester straps over the foot to allow for fit adjustments. The Hurricane Sock – OC ($150) is available in unisex sizing in two monochromatic colorways—black and green—starting, Mar. 5. The second drop consists of two styles, a Flatform Universal and Hurricane XLT2 Gladiator, which will be released in the next few weeks.
“We are honored to work with Opening Ceremony to bring three revolutionary styles to life,” states Anders Bergstrom, general manager at Teva. “This collection is truly innovative and radical.”
“When Opening Ceremony first teamed up with Teva in 2014, Carol and I were excited to partner with such an iconic brand that we loved when growing up in California, exploring the outdoors,” says Humberto Leon, co-founder of Opening Ceremony. “With this collection, we wanted to continue taking Teva’s innovative, functional designs to create something even bolder than we had before.”
The Opening Ceremony x Teva collection will be available at teva.com, openingceremony.com, Opening Ceremony stores and at select retailers globally.
