Teva said it plans to launch its first-ever mountain bike shoe in Fall 2011. The brand collaborated with Teva athlete and professional mountain biker Jeff Lenosky to design the Links, a freeride mountain bike shoe with technical features.

“This fall season we've used our experience and technology to develop the widest range of footwear in the brand's history,” said Teva president Pete Worley. “From hiking to mountain biking, paddling to traveling, Teva shoes enable you to be spontaneous, adventurous and live better stories.”

The sole, made from Teva's proprietary Spider365 sticky rubber, was designed specifically to interface with the platform of a freeride bike pedal. The shoe also uses ion-mask™ technology for complete water protection.

“Teva has supported the freeride mountain bike scene for years at the Teva Mountain Games and I've always been impressed with their shoes,” said  Lenosky. “It was an amazing opportunity to design a product from the ground up and Teva didn't compromise on any aspect of these shoes.”

Also in 2011, Teva will build upon the successful Forge Pro MXT platform with introductions of the Forge Pro Winter Mid WP and the Forge Pro Mid eVent. The Forge Pro Winter Mid incorporates Thinsulate insulation, a T.I.D.E. Seal waterproof membrane, and new Hypergrip technology, which uses pods infused with fiberglass on the sole for optimal grip on ice.

The women's Vero boot is a winter lace boot with medial zip, waterproof T.I.D.E. seal construction, and 200 gram Thinsulate insulation built on a lower profile mountain cross trainer platform with White Spider Rubber for grip in cold conditions.

Teva will also introduce a closed toe version of one of their popular collections, Mush.
