Founded by Jeff Kelley in 1997 when he began making sandals out of inner tubes and indoor-outdoor carpet. Since then, Sanuk has progressed into a semi-proper footwear company where Jeff’s spirit of innovation still serves as the backbone for their brand. Sanuk strives to make products that are as much about funk as they are about function, where sandals are happiest when they tread the road less traveled. The overwhelming popularity of these sandals has allowed the company to stretch its distribution across the United States and in over 70 countries throughout Europe, Asia, South America and Australia.
Sanük means happiness and balance in Thai, which is a fitting name for this company who uses this as their mantra. Their goal is to provide creatively inspired yet thoughtfully designed products for the global outdoor community, because we are all part of it. Like these products, Sanuk’s diverse group of professional athletes that they sponsor are “superfunktional.”
