Gumbies

Utilising natural materials based on a strong ethical foundation, but with a visible point of difference, the quest for the perfect flip-flop had begun.

The ‘Islander’ flip flop, also known as the 1000-miler was conceived.

Prototypes were made using old tyres, but realising that car tyres were too crude and not commercially viable, he set about exploring the use of recycled rubber instead. Bonding it with jute for strength and sandwiching an EVA midsole for comfort, topping it with canvas for a more natural touch to the skin. Finishing off with vibrant, but contemporary colours, each one tells a story – a blank canvas to express his beliefs and unique view of the world.
