Last Chance - 2017 Collection
We are so thankful for our past few years of selling the traditional version of these fun, comfortable, tried & true sandals that have historically been and are handcrafted in various parts of the world.
Not long after beginning to vend these popular sandals on the streets of St. John, USVI, however, we realized that we could and should improve on them... the way they fit, the quality and sourcing of the materials, the extra details we dreamed of adding that would take a great sandal and make it both extraordinary and eco-friendly. The dream of developing our very own Vines Islandwear Original and Unique sandals was born. Sandals that we - over the past 18+ months - have personally created side-by-side, together with our talented sandal designer and maker.
Since 2016, we have have been meeting one-on-one with our North American suppliers, testing, experimenting, and "making better." We've taken everything we've learned over years of helping and watching our customers try on sandals - and we've vastly improved on a traditional concept - not just in fit - but in the quality and intention of every single detail. It was important to us that we personally met face-to-face with each supplier of each detail of our sandal - from the stitching to the soles to the braids - and we did!
In our new Vines Islandwear Original sandals, we have maintained the foundation of what initially made these types of sandals so LUV'd - comfort, light weight, femininity, personality... but we've upgraded to even higher quality polyester cording and lining, dangling Vines charms, a more flexible cut and shape, comfort EVA, and even memory foam heels! Our new soles are fun AND eco-friendly - now developed with a recycled tire rubber blend you can feel GOOD about. And certainly not least, we've infused a gentle coconut scent into our soles - bringing the island to your feet, wherever you may wander. Smell our Feet - if it's not coconut, it's not a Vines Islandwear Original.
Thanks, hugs, and LUV to everyone who has been on this journey with us so far. To those who continue on with us. And to the many who we have yet to meet and Share the LUV with!
We are EXCITED to launch our Vines Islandwear Original sandal line this Summer 2018!
In the meantime - don't lose your chance to grab the last few pairs of our retiring, but well LUV'd, sandals below!!
