aggressive multi directional lugged outsole and an external TPU heel counter for superior stability on your feet – this shoe is ready for anything you can throw at it.

12 SGB OUTDOOR OCTOBER 2010 GNARKOSI
New for SS11, Teva’s Gnarkosi has been developed in collaboration with cutting- edge wake boarding athletes to deliver maximum water performance with distinctive skate / street shoe styling.
The Gnarkosi excels at wakeskating, an adaptation of wakeboarding in which riders are not bound to the board in any way. Wakeskaters typically wear skate shoes that provide maximum purchase on their boards but quickly get heavy and waterlogged, which is why the Garkosi was developed to maximize the wakeskate experience and performance. The Gnarkosi boasts impressive water performance qualities in a shoe that’s begging to be worn around on a daily basis. Built from hydrophobic materials, the Gnarkosi will not absorb water and an integrated, die-cut EVA midsole with Teva’s Drain Frame perforations in the toe and heel ensures maximum drainage. A completely flat outsole with Teva’s proprietary Spider Original rubber provides maximum surface contact and grip whether you’re on a board or climbing over wet rocks.
The Gnarkosi comes in men’s and women’s versions and will be available at speciality retailers and www.teva.co.uk
from February 2011.
Teva’s innovative new flip-flop, the Lumen, will reach retailers in March 2011. Developed by two lifelong surfers from the Teva product team, the Lumen was built from the ground up to be the most comfortable and innovative flip-flop on the market. Inspired by pre-dawn beach treks in search of the perfect wave, the Lumen features a detachable, water-resistant LED Pedlamp that illuminates each step of the wearer’s path with a bright, 10-foot light beam. The Pedlamp is waterproof to three feet, has an eight-hour replaceable battery and detaches to fit on a handy keychain when not in use. More importantly, the Lumen is built upon the most comfortable sandal platform Teva has ever developed, which features a cushy, contoured footbed, a super soft, water friendly Trek Dry microfibre lining and a sticky Spider365 rubber outsole for ultimate grip. The Lumen is available in men’s and women’s sizes in a regular version or a waterproof nubuck leather version.
Radical to look at, and supremely thin, with the Zilch Teva have once again created something entirely
different for the market. Teva says that the Zilch is
the thinnest, most minimalistic sport sandal they’ve ever made. Minimalist construction means that the Zilch will bend and flex naturally with your foot, giving you an amazing feel and connection to the earth, but also giving traction and protection that a bare foot doesn’t. The sole is actually just 10mm thick, which will appeal to the growing ranks of ‘barefoot’ enthusiasts out there. The Zilch is so flexible it can actually be completely rolled up, making it the perfect travel shoe for anyone that likes to pack light. With the Zilch, you can use your feet like Mother Nature intended.
The Zilch’s sole is designed to grip in both wet and dry environments, making it a great shoe for anything you do around the water. Men: 6-12, Women: 3.5 – 8.5 www.teva.co.uk
