Sanuk Men’s Sidewalk Surfer Sandal
Sanuk founded by the SoCal native Jeff Kelley coined a new type of comfortable and laid back footwear inspired by the outdoors. Sanuk comes from the Thai word for fun, and that’s certainly what Sanuk is about. Jeff’s vision began when he started making sandals out of indoor/outdoor carpet creating the “Fur Real” taking off in boutiques rather and not surfer style shops. His next creation was that of a sandal wrapped in wire mesh, a leopard print version, and various other styles made of poncho materials.
Much of what Sanuk prides itself in is it’s ability to provide innovative products, setting them apart from others. From the Beer Cozy sandals to the Yoga Mats or the Sidewalk surfers that are not shoes but are sandals they have changed the market due to their patented sandal construction on most of its products.
One of the most popular styles Sanuk offers is the Men’s Sidewalk Surfers. What Sanuk wants to stress about this creation is that it is NOT a shoe, rather it is a sandal! After you’ve tried it on, then only will you realize it is a sandal. The Sidewalk Surfer features a super soft, high rebound molded EVA footbed featuring AEGIS antimicrobial solution for fresh feet all day long. The upper is a handmade hemp upper with frayed edge detail for a comfortable and vintage look, the inner has a contrasting poncho textile liner sitting on a Happy U outsole. Might I also ad that this shoe is vegan and vegetarian!
Bryan from Houston, TX, “ These were my first pair of Sanuks after wearing Nike’s forever. I love them. They are the most comfortable thing you can put on your feet. I walked the mountains in them and through creeks, and they are holding up just fine. I like them so much I started wearing them to work, and gotten compliments for them. (Small business setting). I bought another pair afterward. The hemp with hold up forever and your feet will thank you.”
Colby from Reading, Pennsylvania,” I wear these sandals to school and just about everywhere else… Let me tell you these sandals are the most COMFORTABLE and STYLISH looking things you could possibly wear on your feet so I highly recommend them. I’m in love with them, I have about 23 pairs and I haven’t bought any other type of “shoe” since I got my first pair 2-3 years ago EXCEPT Sanuks. It goes to show how madly in love I am with these things so yeah you should most definitely get a pair,… you’d be foolish if you didn’t.”
Jared, from South Florida,” I just want to say that I love explaining these sandals to people. Hemp, sandal bottom, everyone’s surprised by these sandals. They are the most stylish and comfortable. There are 6 air-flow holes in each sandal, they’re easy access and versatile sandals and can be easily worn with the backs down. Surprisingly, there’s a lot of arch support. I didn’t expect that from a sandal.”
Sanuk was so intent on creating progressive items that they acted on a green initiative names the R.A.S.T.A. Project. Standing for Recycled And Sustainable Trade Alliance is an initiative put in place for Sanuk to “reduce its impact on the world by providing footwear that is truly impact free.” The outsoles of R.A.S.T.A. Project footwear are made from recycled tires, taken from factories within 100km of Sanuks’ Chinese factories. The other materials used in creating these shoes had been chosen to have the least environmental impact such as “jute, hemp, natural latex, cork and recycled pet (plastic bottles).” Not only this but the packaging has been updated so that the footwear is provided in a biodegradable corn packaging which will naturally decompose.
