Teva Releases Artist Series Sandal with Streetwear Designer Benny Gold

Artist uses iconic sandal silhouette for his notorious San
Francisco-cool designs

(a division of Deckers Brands, NYSE: DECK) today launched the fourth
iteration of its Artist Series collection featuring celebrated San
Francisco-based streetwear designer Benny
. The new men’s style showcases Benny’s take on the iconic
Original Universal sandal with a custom designed nylon webbing upper.
The unique pattern is inspired by a geometric take on his paper airplane
logo, a symbol of youth and to always keep moving. This exclusive design
is available now at and for $60. Additionally, a
limited-edition t-shirt, print, and two sock styles featuring the
exclusive design will be sold for a limited time only at

The annual Teva Artist Series collection celebrates the true spirit of
creative expression, highlighted in this year’s collaboration with
acclaimed artist Benny Gold. What began as a side passion project for
Gold – a graphic artist turned streetwear designer – grew into one of
streetwear’s most popular labels. The brand illustrates the importance
of staying true to one’s passions, growing up without growing old, and a
DIY work ethic without taking oneself too seriously, which is synonymous
with Teva’s brand ethos.

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.”

As with past Artist Series collections, this collaboration will also
support the artistic growth of the next generation of creators by
donating 10% of the retail price for all Benny Gold Artist Series
sandals sold on
to P.S. ARTS. P.S. ARTS’ mission is to improve children’s lives by
providing arts education to underserved public school and communities.

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.”
