Company Summary

Our roots are on the beaches of Southern California making footwear for beach soccer. When our customers told us they wanted to wear their Sockwa off the beach, we pivoted and added an ultra-thin molded sole. The result is the thinnest, most tactile shoe on the planet. Sockwa have numerous uses and are the "ultimate second shoe" since they can be rolled into a tiny bundle. We have a proprietary manufacturing process that enables us to scale.
