Vines Islandwear™, originally founded in the US Virgin Islands and headquartered in the greater Nashville area, TN, features a modern hybrid of fashion+action, lifestyle sandals made FOR women BY women. Vines Islandwear provides women with a comfortable, fun, eco-friendly footwear & accessory experience!
Vines Islandwear Original sandals were inspired by traditional, handmade sandals that have historically been and are handcrafted in various parts of the world. The Vines Vision, however, was to create a collection that focused more on the quality and sourcing of the materials, the extra details that would take a footwear concept from 'good' to an extraordinary and eco-friendly experience. With additional improvements on design, functionality - and even smell! - the LUV my Vines movement was born.
Since 2016, we have have been meeting one-on-one with our North American suppliers - testing, experimenting, and "making better" - side-by-side with our talented designer and shoemaker, Mauricio, and the entire Vines Family in Leon, Mexico. 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!
Our Team is our Vines Family, and we look forward to introducing you to the fabulous people who create your Vines with LUV. We know each individual who glued your soles, tied the knot on your hangtag, cut the liner, and put the finishing touches on the sandal on your foot!
OUR ORIGINAL COLLECTION
In our Vines Islandwear Original sandal collection, we have maintained the foundational characteristics of what initially made these types of sandals so LUV'd - comfort, light weight, femininity, personality... but we designed them with the highest quality polyester cording and polyurethane lining, dangling Vines charms, a more flexible and feminine cut and shape, cushy EVA, and comfort foam heel inserts!
Our custom soles are fun AND eco-friendly - developed with a blend of recycled tire rubber you can feel GOOD about. And certainly not least, we've infused a gentle Tropical Coconut scent™ into our soles - bringing the island to your toes, wherever you may roam.
Stay tuned as we continue to expand our Vines Islandwear LUV lines with new sandal designs and accessories - this is only the beginning!
Vines Islandwear sandals are available in whole sizes 5-12. They fit "true-to-size" to narrow.
Q: Do Vines run "true to size?"
A: Vines Islandwear sandals run "true-to-size" to small/narrow. If you are a half size, we suggest rounding up. If you have a high or higher arch or a wide or wider foot, move up a whole size. Many women can wear multiple sizes depending on the style and preferred fit (a tight hug vs more wiggle room). Unless they have a narrow to average foot, most women who traditionally wear sizes 9 and up can move up a whole size without issue for more breathing room. Using the slip knots, our sandals can be slightly adjusted to best fit your foot size & shape.
Q: Are Vines adjustable?
A: Vines side cord knots give a little room to adjust the fit and hug. Loosen and slide the slip knots up and down the sides of the sandal to create your best fit. Move the back side cords backward to hug slightly looser, or forward for a snugger fit. It makes a difference...try it!
Q: Will my Vines stretch?
A: Our Vines' webbing is made with very high quality, 100% polyester cording. Because of this, your sandals won't stretch, but they will give to your foot as you move and groove. With our webbing's fit and material, your cording shouldn't rub or blister. If your feet tend to swell throughout the day or in the heat, we suggest sizing up to give yourself that extra breathing room.
