Teva Utilizes eVent Waterproof Technology

Goleta, CA (January 7, 2008) – Outdoor footwear brand, Teva® (a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation, NASDAQ: DECK), is proud to introduce the use of eVent® waterproof fabrics in the manufacturing of their collection.

In fall 2008, Teva will introduce three new performance styles that utilize eVent fabrics to block out water from entering the shoe. The pinnacle product for the season, the Aniso, is a lightweight alternative to everyday hiking footwear. In addition, in the fall line-up Teva also has both the Ossagon eVent Mid and Ossagon eVent for those looking for a more traditional waterproof hiker.

“When you make shoes for people who are hiking and trail running in adverse conditions, using a membrane that restricts breathability can make a great day into a terrible experience.” Says Chris Hillyer, Teva Product Line Manager “We looked at all of the available waterproof/breathable technologies available in the footwear industry and were amazed by the difference the eVent membrane made in comfort. We feel confident that our eVent products not only offer the security of being completely waterproof, but continue to allow tremendous breathability to prevent overheating and sweating.”

For more than eight years, eVent® fabrics has produced the most technologically advanced performance films and fabrics in the world. eVent fabrics has built a strong reputation as the most breathable, highly-functional waterproof laminate technology with a very loyal following. Honored by the American Alpine Institute with its prestigious Guides¹ Choice award, eVent fabrics is used by more than 70 brands worldwide in their most demanding outerwear, footwear, gloves, hats, gaiters, sleeping bags and bivy bags. eVent fabrics is headquartered near Kansas City, Mo USA and has operations worldwide.

"We've learned from experience that our best partners are those whose directives are to continually innovate and those who wish not to be caught in the overcrowded middle. Teva's technically focused designs and constructions fit nicely with eVent fabrics' performance attributes.” Says Chad Kelly, Global Product Manager for eVent fabrics “That's why we are ecstatic Teva selected highly-breathable eVent fabrics to improve their already high quality products and to help differentiate their waterproof range."
