Developed with a passion for outdoor life, Gumbies footwear are made with the highest quality of natural and recycled plant friendly materials to provide comfort, convenience and casual style.
The Gumbies brand was born through its creator Michel Maurer’s love for the great outdoors. While Maurer was in Australia, he noticed the functional lifestyle footwear that everyone there was wearing. He decided that the UK and European market needed a new form of simplistic quality footwear to match Australia.
A love of creativity and a simple appetite for adventure lead Michel to head out into the world where, whilst working at an outdoor exhibition in Salt Lake City USA, he discovered an article about Luxury boot maker John Lobb. Maurer was inspired to create a brand that reflected his passion for simplicity and freedom. Thus, the classic Gumbies Islander flip flop was created. Gumbies have become a global brand and continue to create foot wear for ethical and adventurous living.
Although affordable, Gumbies are built using the highest quality materials by using the most natural and recycled plant friendly resources. The minimalist footwear come in a range of different colours and patterns to choose from.
Gumbies have since expanded their range to produces deck shoes, boots and T shirts, however the classic flip flop still remains as their most popular product.
