We discovered a great shoe company to tell you guys about called Sanuk. They have a cool relaxed “surfer-chic” vibe, and offer lots of sandals and “sidewalk surfers,” which are a sandal with a shoe upper attached. So you have the comfort of a sandal with the convenience of a closed shoe. Love that. They even have tubeflops (Its like a tubesock/flipflop combination that you totally have to see. There is something very cool about it.)

The company was formed in 1997 when their founder began making sandals out of inner tubes and indoor-outdoor carpet. They have come along way since then, but they say they still "strive to make products that are as much about funk as they are about function."  Here's another great quote from the company: "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."
My son recently got a pair of sidewalk surfers from Sanuk, and he loves them. He has the in Vagabond style in "Army Brat" camo. His comment about them was “They rock!”  They are perfect for him to wear to his grappling lessons since they are easy to slip off and on. They offer lots of cool colors. They are good quality and are holding up well.
These shoes definitely give the feeling that you could be hanging out by the pier at Huntington Beach or relaxing in Santa Cruz. You can get yourself a pair at (and seriously, you gotta check out the tubeflops under women's sandals!)
And make sure to keep up with them on Twitter and Facebook!

I have been wearing Sanuk's for years and love them. Of course, I lived in a coastal town many moons ago and was a "surfer girl". Now? I am the Mom who loves comfort!
