Islander Flip-Flops by Gumbies
Gumbies Islander Flip Flops designed with a passion for outdoor life, the freedom of minimalistic footwear and ultimately protecting the sole.
A journey from the experiences of travel, sports and exploration lead us to design, develop and manufacture what we believe, as do our loyal customers to be the best all round simplistic footwear one will ever own.
Following the contours of the foot, the arch of the sole and most importantly comfort between the toes.
Made using the most practical, natural and recycled, planet friendly materials where possible.
Timeless style, fashionable, functional, fresh and fun.
Age is not an issue, like best mates they just get more familiar with time.
Let your journey begin!
ADD TO CART
The ‘Islander’ flip flop also know 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.
Gumbies are now enjoyed globally, celebrating the outdoors, freedom, fun and functionality.
Michel believes life is too short for complication. Keep it simple. Ride a wave, climb a mountain, wear Gumbies.
Inspired by Australia. Worn around the world.
