Thousands of happy Maku owners in 45 countries
Designed and built to last for years, from some of the highest quality materials on the market.
After years spent testing 50+ types of soles, we custom designed our own recipe to meet all of our high standards: flexibility, abrasion resistance, shock absorbance, and a slip-resistant grip.
For our White on Tan model, we use 100% genuine premium tan soft suede leather.
For our Black on Red model, we use a premium, synthetic, and vegan red soft suede leather with advanced color fastness properties.
For our Black on Black model, we use a premium anti-slip and durable rubber footbed.
We custom produced straps from a special nautical fiber (from the boating industry) because of its highly durable qualities (resistant to salt, sea, and sun) while being soft on the hands of sailors (softer than cotton feel).

The legacy behind Maku sandals
Your sandals are inspired by the simple footwear of the Tarahumara, a native American tribe of northwestern Mexico. The Tarahumara—known as ‘the running indians’— have developed a tradition of long-distance running up to 300 km (200 miles) in one session. They runin a traditional form of minimal sandals called ‘Huaraches’, made from a piece of leather or old tire rubber and a rope. We've improved on this original minimalist design and tailored it to fit your everyday urban life as well as the great outdoors.
