Freewaters is a small group on a mission to improve the quality of life through superior product experience and by helping find solutions to the global drinking water pandemic. They are two industrial designers, longtime friends, and have a shared addiction to pushing the limits of design, wearing sandals 24-7, spending as much time in the water as possible and a common desire to make the world a better place. Freewaters is dedicated to those that seek the freedom of the open road, act as global citizens and dare to chart their own path in life. Each pair comes with a limited lifetime warranty and supports our clean drinking water projects.
As product designers, they grew tired of failing to find sandals with the fit, performance and styling that they wanted. Nestled deep in the redwood trees, their design studio sits triangulated between the undeveloped coast north of Santa Cruz, the epicenter of innovation known as Silicon Valley and the funk of San Francisco - inspiration on all sides.
As humans, they grew tired of procrastinating to make the world a better place. Freewaters believes access to clean water is a basic human right. With over 3,300,000 people dying every year from dirty water and a lack of proper hygiene, they felt compelled to get involved - and what better way then through creating great sandals.
They have just returned from Kenya where they initiated Project #1: a series of fresh water wells in communities of dire need in the western region of the country. Freewaters invites you to "Come Road Trippin'!"
