Sustainable Sandals

Chicago summers are the best part of living here. As much as I love our summers, I always admired California style. It’s relaxed and chic. This summer, forget those Old Navy flip flops, ladies. Picture yourself in a pair of sandals known for their world class comfort and style. Modern Huarache sandals are inspired by ancient hand-woven details, influenced by Southern California’s coastal lifestyle and made of 100% cruelty-free materials.  Malibu Sandals is the unique innovator of the new women’s line consisting of six styles in various colors.

Malibu Sandals’ mission is simple: to create the most comfortable, stylish, and modern Huarache sandals in the world. Inspired by the coastal lifestyle, these shoes are comfortable with an anatomically supportive ultra-soft foot bed. Malibu has created a modern version of the Huarache sandal by incorporating the classic hand-woven strap design.

“Adopting the century’s old hand-woven details and primal aesthetic of the class Huarache pattern, we have combined contemporary techniques to provide casual performance and comfort features” says Kevin O’Neill, founder of Malibu Sandals.

As a vegetarian and animal rights supporter, I love any cruelty-free product (of course)! Their sandals are certified PETA vegan, and made with vegan, water-friendly materials. For you water lovers, these are a great option! I love to go to Lake Michigan in the summer time (pretending it’s the California coast) and these will serve as awesome beach shoes. Also, Malibu sandals donate a percentage of sales to the California Wildlife Center (

If you are looking to incorporate vegan, sustainable options to your wardrobe, Malibu Sandals are what you’re looking for. I recently wore them during my weekend travels. Check it out on Instagram! You can bring that California feel to wherever you live. Check out the different styles and color options available at:
