About Us

Thank you for looking at our new online store and recently rebranded shoes! You might remember us as the THE HAIRY HIPPIES! Same great, well actually improved, shoes. Just a new name and fresh start. Come join us on this journey.

If you are normally a barefoot bandit then these are the shoes for you! After years of being a gypsy and rarely wearing shoes we moved to Bali, Indonesia. I found myself back on a motorbike and needing closed in shoes! I discovered these amazing 100% Vegan, Zero (flat, which for us barefoot peeps, is comfort) and well yes super comfortable HANDMADE shoes made from TYRES and other cool eco material !!! Better still, they could withstand my rough and ready lifestyle. Motorbikes, hiking, travelling around S.E.A, chasing my kids and constantly being kicked on and off (no shoes inside in Bali). 

By chance I ended up meeting the producer of these amazing shoes and, well, here we are....
