“Feel the wind with your toes.” Teva’s first trail running sandal “Aventrail” developed to enjoy nature
On sale from Tuesday, June 11, 2024!
(June 11, 2024) – TOKYO, Japan, Teva(R), which was born in 1984 by developing the world’s first sports sandals with straps, and which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, is a company in the sports sandal category. Teva’s first revolutionary trail running sandal, “Aventrail,” which has been redefined with new technology, will be released on Tuesday, June 11, 2024. Available in two colors for both men’s and women’s, the price is 20,900 yen (tax included).
[Image 1:×1890.jpg] “Aventrail” is based on the concept of “Feel The Wind Through Your Toes” and is based on Teva’s philosophy of “enjoying nature”. This is a new product for the 2024 fall/winter season, developed as a running sandal that allows you to run freely. This innovative model bridges the gap between sandals and shoes, combining performance,
responsiveness, cushioning, comfort, and style to give you the best trail running experience.
The developer is Jean-Luc Diard, global VP of innovation for the Deckers brand and co-founder of HOKA(R). He brings various innovations to the sports scene, and based on Teva’s philosophy of “enjoying nature,” he created the new “Aventrail” to expand the philosophy of trail running.
A soft engineered knit upper provides breathability and forefoot stability on rough terrain, while a newly developed double-strap system secures the entire foot and allows for a fully adjustable fit. HYPER-COMF technology that exhibits excellent resilience and cushioning, and Teva’s original SPIDER RUBBER(R) outsole that has excellent durability and grip, provide sufficient support even on downhill slopes. The built-in nylon plate stabilizes the propulsion force and corrects twisting. It provides powerful running and acceleration on uphill. They cover less of the foot than running shoes, giving the forefoot a sense of freedom and openness. It can be used comfortably with socks or barefoot, depending on the runner’s preference.
Aventrail combines ease of use and high performance to create a wonderful trail running experience that allows runners to enjoy nature in a variety of environments by delivering speed and the exhilaration of barefoot running. It allows you to feel and run comfortably.

■ Impressions after wearing Aventrail
When I first wore them and went for a run, I thought, “They’re easier to run than I imagined.” In the first place, I had the assumption that sandals lacked stability and were not highly functional, but I was biased against sandals due to the fit of the Aventrail, the structure of the midsole for running on trails, and the placement of the lugs. Overturned.
■ About the visual shoot of Aventrail and the concept of running on the trail in sandals
I took various shots to convey the product concept of “enjoying nature” and “enjoying trails,” but running on the trail wearing Aventrail itself felt like a rough feeling that relaxed my shoulders and was free. It has a feeling of playing with it, and I think I was able to express the joy of running on a trail while enjoying nature, without having to consciously emphasize it.
■ Comments regarding the brand Teva
Through this campaign shoot, I was able to learn more about Teva’s brand history and product concept. As someone who enjoys mountain activities, I really sympathized with Teva’s philosophy of “enjoying nature.”

[Image 11:×2000.jpg] Teva was born in Grand Canyon, USA in 1984. A river guide was having trouble guiding people around because his thong sandals easily came off. One day, when his sandals were about to fall off at the water’s edge, he improvised and attached the hook-and-loop strap of a watch that happened to be nearby to the tong cord, and designed it so that it would be difficult for his sandals to fall off. has begun.
