Teva’s spring/summer 2021 collection will include a footwear line designed in collaboration with Chrishabana, a jeweler in New York City. Called Heavy Metals, the line comprises four revisions – with barbell piercings and pearls – of Teva’s Universal Sandals and is to celebrate trans people and BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color). The line was presented on Nov. 18 at New York’s Allen Street Art Gallery along with a video called Uncle Kenny by the queer musician Desire Marea. The video is available on Vimeo as well as at the Chrishabana website, which is also running an auction of the sandals and other items. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Transgender Law Center, to which Teva is donating an additional $5,000.
