The website says “the all day, everyday sandals”, and by the looks of it, they combine both function and aesthetics – I still have to get my pair.
The website also lists a number of benefits of wearing these sandals, including comfort, materials and the hand-made aspect to them, however, what I find the most interesting to mention is the fact that the creator of these sandals went through 37 iterations until he found the perfect design. That kind of design process cannot fail.
In their words:
5 years and 37 tries later, we finally had it right. So right in fact, that as soon as we sold 50 pairs, a hundred more lined up. With each pair taking us 4 hours to make by hand, we knew we had to find a better way to bring Makus to the world.
The founders started a crowdsourcing campaign on indiegogo with 453% funds collected and people should gets their pairs in July. It would be interesting to look at the feedback then.
