Freaky Tiki Tropical Optical Opens New Stores

Recognized at the SIMA Image Awards as the 2007 and 2010 Footwear Product of the Year, Sanuk makes creatively inspired and distinctly designed footwear for the global outdoor community. Taking its name from the Thai word for fun, the brand is best known for its Sidewalk Surfers, often referred to as “Not-A-Shoes” for their patented sandal construction, which allows your feet to bend and flex in natural comfort. The evolution of the brand features Yoga Mat Collections, Thinovation (a new sleeker profile to the heritage Sidewalk Surfer) and Instaplay (a new innovative footbed).

Sanuk Waikiki is located at 2424 Kalakaua Ave., Suite 133. For more information, visit
