Teva at Empire Shoes

In 1984, a young Grand Canyon river guide revolutionized the footwear industry when he created the world’s first sports sandal. This idea soon spawned a brand, and the new adventure of Teva® was born.

It’s been 25 years since Teva took the  first step into the Grand Canyon, and not a moment has gone by that Teva® (that’s “teh’-vah,” not “tee-vah”) hasn’t been hard at work developing products that enable and encourage your adventure. Of course, given Teva’s heritage, their obsession with water, and their passion for identifying and enhancing the areas in which water effects an adventure. To Teva, water presents a paradox. It is the source of a year-round playground, but it simultaneously poses a year-round problem. Anyone who has ever slipped on a patch of ice or been forced to deal with soaking wet socks can attest to this duality.



Essentially, Teva® has two fundamental responsibilities: to play and to protect. Teva play in the water, but  Teva also sees the need to be protected from it. Teva’s responsibility is to manage this delicate balance, so you can go forth without reservation. Armed with a quarter-century worth of knowledge and technology, Teva is dedicated to developing products that strike this balance to deliver the most out of your adventures.

Empire Shoes is an authorized Teva dealer.
