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.
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 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.
|Ibiza Runaway-metal / sparkly stubs|
Basic EVA sandals are not basic basic-with the new Sanuk Bubbler footbed that's a tiny massage with every step/
|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."
Braided-two tones- and contrast stitch details on this oversized strap/ toe strap- are meant to be worn after class, all the time-like at tradeshows! Nice.

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.
