The makers of the earth-friendly award winner for interchangeable slide sandals, Vicky Moudilou and Stam Guinis of Eating the Goober, said the idea for the sandals, which are made from recycled inner tube sandals, came from the need to travel light on vacation since their usual mode of transportation is motorcycle.

“We wanted sandals that were transformable so you could easily change the upper part, and thus the look,” Guinis said, noting the sandals come in 30 designs. “That way, you can have as many designs and colors as you want. Using useless materials is part of our philosophy. We always loved recycling and upcycling and making things from scrap materials.”
