Teva‘s commuter sneaker, the Carbon, isn’t just for bike-riders. It’s streetwear designed to combat all kinds of slippery situations with style. Offering a super-traction sole—composed of Spider365 rubber and a PedalLINK pattern—and designed in conjunction with a team of professional free-ride bikers, these shoes are optimized for interfacing both a bike pedal and slick roads. While keeping with Teva’s guaranteed comfort, they offer a snug, secure grip. They’ve been designed with bike commuters in mind, but regardless of how you’re getting around, the Carbon carries ergonomic control and solid grip.
An upgrade from other casual shoes, the Carbon contours to your feet while resting them atop a lush insole. All materials are waterproofed, and can hold up better than most sneakers in fairly wild environments. A full-grain leather vamp also guarantees protection against pedal toe cages, or even street scrapes. On the design side, the leather and canvas upper are cleanly partnered, yielding a simple, sleek appearance. The reflective detailing matches style and function. Altogether, it’s a classic low-top look touched with flourishes. For a reliable experience in innovation, the Teva Carbon has much to offer, whether you’re a bike commuter, or just someone who likes to keep their feet on the ground.
Teva’s Carbon are available for purchase online for $90.
