About Malibu Sandals
Who We Are
We are not a fashion brand.
Fashion brands celebrate designers and believe things like “shoes make the man.”
We exist to celebrate individuals.
The free spirits.
The ones who live fully and do it with style.
The thrill seekers by day
and the trendsetters by night.
The outdoorsmen and women.
The select few who’ve figured out the only life worth living is a comfortable one.
Because truth be told, shoes don’t make the man.
The men and women who wear them do.
Our mission is simple: create the most comfortable, stylish and modern sandals on the planet.
To achieve this, we’ve combined the ancient craft of Mexican huarache sandal-making with contemporary footwear design and engineering techniques, using cruelty-free materials.
With a return to a traditional design philosophy, we’ve beautifully re-imagined the classic Mexican huarache with updated features that deliver on everyday wearability from the beach to the boulevard.
The Mexican Huarache
Inspiration Behind Malibu Sandals
In an effort to create the world’s most comfortable, stylish, modern huarache, we set forth by looking back.
Mexican huarache sandals date back many centuries. Their origins are unknown, but there are clear design links between Mayan Caites sandals and pre-Hispanic footwear seen on ancient codices.
Traditionally handmade and constructed out of raw leather, the huarache’s primal design language features an intricate woven pattern that’s iconic, durable and proven to withstand the test of time.
