Teva's Waterproof Revive '94 Mid Is Inspired by a Pair of 1990s Sandals

Waterproof shoes have never looked so good.

Teva isn’t concerned about what’s supposedly cool, because with pairs such as the Revive ‘94 Mid it is making a niche of its own. This pair of mid-cut booties are actually inspired by the Sandal Hiker that was released back in 1994, which was subsequently one of the most impactful silhouettes to release in the ’90s for the footwear brand.

The Revive ‘94 Mid is the first pair to release under Teva’s “Archival Revival” collection which uses pairs from the archive to inspire new silhouettes that speak to a more demanding audience. Like all of Teva’s drops, the shoe does have a true outdoor-driven purpose, but of course, there’s no doubt this pair will be picked up by the normcore-meets-streetwear obsessives.

Using recycled materials throughout its design, the shoe combines waterproof leather in a tan hue that looks as if it has a natural patina, but instead just sports a unique aesthetic that comes as a result of its weather-ready credentials. Mesh has been used throughout the shoe for the majority of the base, while rubber hits up the toe, mid-panel, and heel — where at the rear, large Teva branding has been added in teal.

Bringing in more references to the 1990s (but simultaneously looking bang on trend) is the signature Teva straps that cross over the upper, buckling up to become the shoe’s tightening mechanism in place of traditional laces, for example. Rounding out the shoe is its EVA midsole and rubber outsole, which is finished in a gum hue to complement the weatherproof leather.

The shoe is said to drop on August 2 and can be purchased from Teva or Mastered Japan.

In other news, PLEASURES has crafted a Cordura-covered Reebok Club C 85 (and another Club C Legacy to boot).
