Teva Introduces Aventrail, The Brand’s Most Innovative Trail Running Sandal

June 26, 2024

Aventrail delivers an entirely new sensation of freedom while running and adventuring outdoors.

GOLETA, Calif., (June 26, 2024) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Teva®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), is continuing to push the boundaries in performance footwear, introducing the first-of-its-kind, trail running sandal built for an uninhibited run experience. Aventrail was created to bridge a gap in the trail running market between running sandals with minimal support and modern running shoes with underfoot innovation and cushion. Delivering the responsiveness of a running shoe and sensation of a sandal, the new Aventrail is built for the backcountry with a foot-hugging W Strapping System, HYPER-COMF underfoot cushioning, and a durable Spider Rubber® outsole with tiered traction lugs for grip on trails.

“The difference between a true performance trail running sandal and trail running shoe is the elevated experience of freedom. This sandal has the qualities of a running shoe (grip, cushion, propulsion,) but now has additional high-performance elements,” says Jean-Luc Diard, Global VP of Innovation at Deckers Brands and Co-Founder of HOKA(R). “The Aventrail sandal has extra breathability—key for performance and well-being—and the ability to lock down your foot. Then comes feel. You feel further connected with nature through the fact that you can enjoy everything about it, at the speed you want, because your feet feel uninhibited— they can experience extra sensations with less in between you and the outdoors.”

Aventrail’s key differentiator is the engineered knit sandal upper which offers breathability and forefoot lockdown, combined with the responsiveness of HYPER-COMF cushioning and the durable Spider Rubber® outsole to offer ample support on downhill descents. The W Strapping System provides a secure and personalized fit, allowing for a unique sensation of forefoot freedom with less material on the upper when compared to a standard running shoe. Aventrail can be worn with or without socks based on the runner’s preference.

“Teva introduced the very first sport sandal 40 years ago at its inception, and to now unveil Aventrail, the brand’s first sandal specifically designed for trail running, is a huge milestone and testament to the brand’s history and next evolution in outdoor performance,” says Lee Cox, Vice President and General Manager of Teva, Ahnu, and Sanuk at Deckers Brands. “Backed by category credibility, Aventrail introduces a new era of functional Teva shoes, and we’re thrilled to continue innovating with this new category expansion and product assortments.”

  • W Strapping System provides secure lockdown, adjustability, and a personalized fit
