Developed with a passion for outdoor life, Gumbies Islander Thongs provide the freedom of minimalistic footwear while ultimately protecting the sole.
From the experiences of travel, sports and exploration our journey has led us to design, develop and manufacture what we believe to be the best all round simplistic footwear one will ever own.
Gumbies follow the contours of the foot, the arch of the sole and most importantly provide comfort between the toes, whilst using the most practical, natural and recycled planet friendly materials where possible.
Age is not an issue. Like best mates, they get more familiar with time. Gumbies Islander Thongs give you timeless style and are fashionable, functional, fresh and fun.
We chose recycled rubber as the base material for our innovative outsoles with the dual purpose of flexibility and durability in mind. This second-life material avoids the need for further rubber farming, which often involves environmentally damaging forest clearance.
For our flip-flops, we combine recycled rubber with biodegradable jute fibres to provide extra strength and durability to our outsoles. Jute threads are woven into our flip-flop Gumtread™ Outsoles in a criss-cross style to provide flex while preserving the integrity of the rubber wear after wear.
Stand For A Tree
With each purchase of Gumbies flip-flops, a mangrove tree is planted in Mozambique, Madagascar or Kenya. Mangrove trees specifically are enriching to the environment due to their ability to store up to 4 times the amount of carbon of other trees.
