Hi, we’re Sanük. We’ve been around since July, 1997 when Jeff Kelley started making sandals out of inner tubes and indoor-outdoor carpet. 1998 marked our first full year of operations. While we’ve progressed into semi-proper footwear company (uh-oh), Jeff’s spirit of innovation still serves as the backbone of our little brand. Today, we strive to make products that are as much about funk as they are about function. We’ve found our sandals are happiest when they tread the road less traveled – so we design ‘em accordingly. Because “Sanük” is the Thai word for FUN, our name is also our mantra.
Our goal is to provide creatively inspired yet thoughtfully designed products for the global outdoor community…mostly because we’re part of it. Headquartered in Southern California, we are an eclectic little family hailing from Santa Cruz, Seattle, Cardiff by the Sea, the Philippines, Colombia, Hong Kong, and even Papua New Guinea. With your support, we continue to grow and now have distribution across the United States and in over 50 countries throughout Europe, Asia, South America and Australia.
Sanük sponsors a diverse group of professional athletes ranging from surfers like Donavon Frankenreiter and Dave Rastovich to rock climbers like Chris Sharma and Randy Leavitt. Their impact on our brand culture has been profound as we deliberately partner with athletes known as much for their style and charisma as their specialized talents. Like the products we design, our roster of athletes is truly “superfunktional.”
Sanuk is a company that is eco-friendly that makes comfortable sandals. Their shoes come in a box made of recycled paper, and in a bag that is re-usable and thus eco-friendly. One of their famous motto is "These are not shoes. They're sandals" because each shoe has a sandal base to make them easy to wear and comfortable. They are also water and odor resistant which is great for a sandal.
My husband and I had a chance to try out these Sandals on our most recent trip, and we love them. My husband loves his Scurvy shoes. They are perfect for the Spring and Summer when you want to wear shorts, but don't want that awkward white knee-sock look with slip on shoes. I love the way they look without socks...very GQ. I would encourage you to check out their shoes if you are looking for comfort and a fun summer look (they also have boots and fall/winter shoes)!
"These are by far my favorite pair of casual shoes. In the past two weeks, I have worn these shoes on many occasions. They are lightweight, stylish and the best of all, I can wear them without socks and not worry about sweating. They came with a blue pair of laces, but I prefer wearing them without laces, which adds to the ease of kicking them on and off. During these economic times, it’s important to buy things that are versatile. I have worn these shoes with shorts, jeans and khakis. They are as comfortable as sneakers, but much more appropriate for the workplace. I am meticulous when it comes to a good pair of shoes, but I can honestly say I give them 10 out of 10 stars. Oh yeah, they also came packaged in a reusable bag, which I did in fact use to carry my lunch to work. What more can a person ask for?"
