SANUK SPRING 2012 "Stairway To Comfort"/Walking Naturally

SANDAL FOOTWEAR

Outdoor Retailer/SLC

SANUK the FUNK-FUNCTION brand of footwear that's a sandal/shoe hybrid- outfits wearers with all the comforts of barefoot walking and flip-flop flexibility ---PLUS bumped up with snazzy vamps and decorative details...that make this So Cal based company-a worldwide phenomenon.


Ibiza Luau




SANUK puts out a fun, wit equipped catalogue every season---including the latest for Spring 2012. We actually read it from cover to cover because ---there was actually stuff to read---including Sanuk Glossary terms like "Crashpad"---the "...new super squish EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate-expanded/foam rubber) footbed that has been performance rated for style, comfort, and breathability."
Ibiza Stitch







Ibiza Sunburst-chic enough for evening wear
























Why Sanuk's gets it rep for ultimate comfort and flexibility---is often courtesy of a patented sandal construction found in their acclaimed Sidewalk Surfer styles, for example ---that gets rid of the rigid shanks and stitch boards...and takes the design part to another level.
Always happy-Ibiza Tiki


NEW FOR SPRING:

The popular Ibiza collection for gals gets new trim/insole details for the lightweight, cushy flexible sandals. There is so much to like-we are wowed they come up with all these great decorative stones/beads/grommet items to pair with textured/imprinted footbeds that function as fashion too.

Basic EVA sandals are not basic basic-with the new Sanuk Bubbler footbed that's a tiny massage with every step/
Bubbler
The Yoga Mats are the ultimate in comfort.




  Yoga Mat Wedge






















New thong materials-solids and tropical prints-notice how the inner lining adds comfort and eye-appeal -with a new wedge height we think makes this a great urban sandal.






Yoga Serenity& Paradise











A new sporty water friendly version-with Cubby footbeds-inspired by the modern chaise lounge chairs we hope to buy for our apartment...support and airflow to dry feet, guaranteed.

FYI: "Made outta real yoga mats."

Yoga Sport

Sequins are mainstream daywear now-Shorty Series add a flirty touch to a casual kicker.


The sculpted insole of  the Rasta Brisbane-hidden comfort -but exterior is all laid back style- the hand wrought contrast stitching adds an island element.


Everyone shows animal prints-here' s Sanuk's take-the Vagabond- I'm Game. LOL

Our fav new look belongs to the Cadet-that takes the Vagabond slip-on silhouette-and adds a double strap,  mary-jane construction (with hidden elastic for grip/.easy on/off)---cute buttons---



Chevron pattern on heels---

Earthy Tie One On---laid back-but still with the fit of Sanuk's Vagabonds-(side stretch elastic for easy on, stay on)

MEN's -we had a few moments for the guys----

Maybe the most popular style....

The retro sneaker style of the Sidewalk Streaker slip-on

Love the cartoon insole




























Hawaiian Inspired-Standard Get Lei'd HA HA-even if just for a "Bromantic Getaway"  Cool mixed textures



There might be more Sanuk options for guys-and that's okay---it's good to have different ways to express individuality-especially for the fashion challenged! We didn't have much time...but there's plenty more styles---and mini-me versions too-for kids.



crush -able heel












The Sunbrella™ collab has handsome pinstripes for guys-in Pick Pocket series of slip-ons.
