These natural rubber sandals are made from soft, sustainably grown latex that conforms to your feet—so you’ll almost feel like you’re barefoot. Inspired by 5,000 year-old traditional Indian wooden sandals, the angled strap hugs your foot to give a secure fit and prevent that flip-flopping sound, too. For every pair bought a tree is planted in Africa, suited to the specific needs of a community.

Very comfortable shoes-then size changed


I got my first pair in Small quite a few years ago. I would give them an A+. Actually it was the first time I saw them. I had to have them.The style has a great "wow" factor. They are very comfortable for me and I love that they don't "flop" with every step. This spring I ordered 2 more pairs because I was having some foot issues and these were the most comfortable for me. However, the new ones in Small are quite a bit larger than my original small size. The toe piece is also higher and I can't wear them at all. I was very disappointed, but got too busy to contact The Grommet. I will give them to a charity flea market and hope someone else can enjoy them as much as I do.More > < Less




They feel good on my feet two thumbs up


Terrific shoes!


This shoes are so comfortable, can go in the water or anywhere and they are sustainable. I got them in the gray color because they are so neutral that they can go with anything for the casual look or the beach look. What more can a person ask for? Really love the shoes and the vendor was right on. No delays no hassles excellent vendor and product!More > < Less


love them


however!....I have a large space between those two toes so they slip off rather easily. I remedied it with a hair pony tail band around my big toe and the sandal. otherwise, very comfy.More > < Less

Who wore it best? Probably Ghandi.

About Gurus

Comfort Afoot

These natural rubber sandals are steps beyond your average flip-flops. They’re eco-friendly, comfy, and don’t make that flapping noise when you walk.

Maker Prem Thomas modeled Gurus after 5,000-year-old traditional wooden sandals from India. (The same shoes worn by his grandfather and Ghandi himself.)

The minimalist design almost looks like you’re barefoot—and it feels like it, too. Made of sustainably grown rubber latex, the sandals conform to your feet over time. And because they’re made from natural rubber, they’re durable and biodegradable, unlike the petroleum-based synthetic rubber in most other flip-flops.

To further help the planet, for every pair of Gurus sold, they plant a tree in Africa to help the environment and the population. Working with local communities, they choose trees that are apt to the solve issues in that area—from banana trees for food to plants that prevent erosion.

Fashion always repeats itself, and with these sandals, it’s better the second time around.
