What makes the perfect summer sandal you ask? All the small things, from the rubber in our outsoles to leathers sourced exclusively from environmentally Gold Rated tanneries, are well thought out and ethically sourced. Designed to mimic wet sand that supports your foot as you step into it, our anatomical footbeds deliver the perfect balance of instant comfort and lasting support.
Of course, the best sandals are an amalgamation of things: style, function, durability, and versatility. We pay close attention to each element of design to ensure superior fit, highlight unique details, and provide long-lasting comfort.
We gathered some crowd favorites you’re sure to reach for at the first sign of summer adventure. See our favorite summer sandals for men and women below.
Sandals That Wear Like Sneakers
The ultimate island sandal. Ulele embodies everything you love about your favorite sneakers—lightweight, versatile, modern—but in the ease of a sandal. Ulele is one of our best summer sandals for walking and travel.
Similarly Hila is another versatile, elevated style perfect for tropical vacations, beach days, or poolside hangs. Best paired with a summer state of mind, Hila is a true warm-weather essential. Puffy rolled straps hug your feet in comfort and slide-on design is perfect for on-the-go adventures.
Water-Resistant and Ready
Waterproof, quick-drying, and durable, our sandals are ready for whatever summer adventure awaits–rain or shine. Ho‘ōpio Hau features a simple foundation featuring playful, island-inspired details. Another water-friendly style is Maha and Kōko‘o. Thanks to our Wet Grip Rubber and traction outsoles, stable and sure-footed adventures lie ahead on whatever path you travel with these beach sandals.
Sand-Like Comfort, Elevated Style
For the seaside dinner or cozy beach bonfire, try Huawai or Tuahine. Wrapped in supple, full-grain leather, Huawai pairs well with any outfit and feels more comfortable with every step. Tuahine uses buttery-soft leather that molds to your feet over time, providing a custom fit that will keep you comfortable and stylish wherever you go.
We love these simple, elevated styles for their trendy touches and ever-evolving comfort. Dress them up for a night on the town, or carry them along for a seaside stroll–we recommend these for the beach, not the ocean.
