At Teva there's one goal: to help you Live Better Stories. They were born on the Colorado River more than 25 years ago when some river guides wanted shoes that could help them through their epic adventures, and that’s still what they aim to do. Whether your story is set on a bike, a trail, a raft or a board, Teva can help you live it better. And given that water is in our DNA, we’ll trade you…A Pair for a Foot. For every pair of Teva footwear sold, we’ll clean one foot of global waterways in lakes, rivers and oceans.

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 their 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 their heritage, Teva has an obsession with water, and their passion lies in identifying and enhancing the areas in which water effects an adventure. To them, 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. They play in the water, but they also see 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.
