Technology

The Teva Innovative Design Elements (T.I.D.E) Lab is a top secret facility located 35 stories underground where our crack team of scientists comes up with revolutionary and life-altering innovations. Ok maybe we exaggerated that a bit. The truth is we love the outdoors, so we create innovations to better your journey and the stories you’ll tell.

T.I.D.E Hydro

Squish. Squish. Squish. Annoying, right? That’s the sound of your wet shoes slogging around. Drain Frame™ drains water like a sieve, saving you from the misery of waterlogged shoes.

What good is a waterproof membrane if it keeps water out, but also makes your feet sweat like a turkey on Thanksgiving? Our eVent® membrane keeps water out and also wicks sweat away from your feet, keeping them dry inside and out.

ion-mask,™ technology by P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, falls into the category of what we call "magic tech." Imagine a process that allows you to make an object water repellent on a nanoscale, meaning that its very fibers repel water. It sounds like sci-fi, but that’s what ion-mask™ does to our shoes.

The best way to make sure your feet dry quickly? Make sure they don’t get wet in the first place. T.I.D.E Seal membranes will seal out the water (get it?) and keep you high and dry.

T.I.D.E Comfort

There's a lot of things to love about winter. The loss of all sensation in your feet isn't one of them (hopefully). But with 3M Thinsulate™ insulation, that's one part of winter you won't have to deal with thanks to the years of research that 3M has conducted in the field of foot-warmth-ology.

Caution: Mush® is the happiest four-letter word in the English language. It may put you in such a state of relaxation that you could momentarily lose touch with reality. Do not wear while operating heavy machinery.

Now we're not necessarily splicing Mush® genes back in the T.I.D.E Lab to build a hybrid mutant insole, but we do have an insole that’s worthy of the Mush name.

You wouldn't ride a bike without a seat. The same logic applies for our Shoc Pad™ technology, which will give you a smooth ride without inhibiting your performance.

T.I.D.E Grip

One rubber, huge range of uses. Spider365 Rubber is the spork of our rubber arsenal.

Vibram® is legendary for their durable and versatile outsoles, so when we need a bombproof and functional sole, we call up the crew at Vibram.

You don't want to bring a knife to a gunfight, but you also don't want to bring a gun to a pillow fight (that would just be weird). Our Durabrasion Rubber gives you a solid balance of performance and durability without being overkill for everyday activities.

Walking on ice is an art, and sometimes even the experts eat it. Hard. When White Spider Rubber isn’t enough, we have our Hypergrip® Ice Lock™ outsole. Its fiberglass-infused pods will stick to ice like wet tongues, keeping your face a safe distance from the ground.

Our Spider Rubber + JStep outsole may be the grippiest sole we’ve ever made, which is saying something, considering we made our reputation sticking to wet rocks.

A lot of people ask why we named our original rubber compound after one of the creepiest creatures on the planet. In response, we ask them if they’ve ever seen a cute puppy climb up a completely vertical, soaking wet rock. No? We rest our case.

When it’s cold out, most rubber hardens up and loses its flexibility, turning your shoes into ice skates. White Spider Rubber was made to stay soft and flexible in freezing temperatures, leaving the ice-skating to the pros.
