They are made from environmentally friendly materials such as old yoga mats and indoor blankets.
We are a small diverse family based in Southern California, hailing from the east and west coasts, the Philippines, Hong Kong and even Cleveland, Ohio.
The Sanuk have their own style: they look like shoes but they wear sandals. As the name suggests, the shoe’s fabric is made from almighty hemp, with a smooth thread around the edge of the upper. They are also vegan.
And yes, they are made with real yoga mats. Made from the same foam as a yoga mat, this lightweight sandal follows every step with bold comfort. Sanuk was founded in the late 1990s by Southern California surfers looking for shoes that reflected their upbeat lifestyle.
With its casual styles and comfortable shoes, Sanuk has become a favorite shoe for surfing, camping and just going out. We know people who live as Sanuk and we were pretty sure they were interested in something.
In my opinion, these are the best walking shoes for commuting. I love my Sanuk yoga sandals, even if they don’t offer much support. The soles are so soft and cushioned. For a family vacation, I recommend walking short distances to enjoy it.
Water Friendly, But Not Waterproof: While you can get them wet and even wear them in water because the yoga mat’s foot has no sealed edges, these slippers tend to stick to water (like a sponge). They also take a long time to dry properly.
Due to the fabric, these shoes stretch a little when worn, but not too much.
The word sanuk (pronounced sanaok by appearance) in Thai language means to have fun, have fun, have fun and have fun and enjoy something. It is almost a rule of thumb for Thais that everything they do should be Sanuk.

So, as long as the top of your Sanuk isn’t leather (most aren’t), a gentle cold machine wash should suffice. Throw them away, add color-safe laundry detergent and spin to win. As always, clean thoroughly and never throw the Sanuk into the dryer.
Wear sanuk with or without socks, don’t go back and forth. The upper tends to stretch a bit when worn with socks, which makes it a bit sloppy when barefoot. Wash sanuk regularly to minimize odors.
No matter which shoe you buy, you can rest assured that the minimalist design offers high-quality orthopedic features that support the arch of the foot and subtly train over 20 foot muscles. Like all of our orthopedic sandals, the Sanuk models are light and visually appealing, yet undeniably effective.

Most hemp shoes have a rubber sole, so machine washing isn’t ideal. Use a scrub brush or cloth dampened with soapy water to scrub the hemp fabric. Clean your shoes with a clean cloth dampened with clean water to remove any soap residue. Rinse the cloth frequently to remove the soap from the cloth.
