Two Dallas Dudes Have Made Some Pretty Sweet Flip-Flops Called Hari Mari

Flip flops don’t interest me much. For starters, there’s no heel. (Boo.) Also, they don’t make much of a statement. (Except, “Hi. I’m shorter than usual today.”) I’ve made an exception for homegrown Hari Mari sandals by Dallas owners Jeremy Stewart and Barrett Horton. I’ve been sampling a pair for the last few days (mostly walking the dog and such), and I’m quite pleased. So what makes these stand out from the millions of flip flops already being manufactured? One, they’re truly comfy. The footbed has been tailored to the perfect level of cushion. Not too soft, not too hard, just right. (Call me Goldilocks.)

“Hari Mari’s comfort starts with its unique memory foam-lined toe posts that make them easy on toes from day one, and continues with soft-squeeze mid-soles and firm arch supports to make any trek, from the park to the beach, an enjoyable one,” Stewart says.

Secondly, from the shoes’ materials to the proceeds, Hari Mari is a humanitarian brand. Each pair is made with reprocessed rubber, foam, and biodegradable hemp. For every set sold, $3 heads to Cook Children’s Hospital to help families battling cancer.  Lastly, to keep the footwear out of landfills, a incentive program offers shoppers a 15 percent discount on a pair of new flops with the return of the old ones.

“In my mind, a perfect flip flop also needs to be eco-responsible,” Stewart says.

I’m into the simplicity of the design. The debut collection, “Parks,” contains white bottoms with solid-color straps in green, blue, brown, black, and more, all for a clean $60 a pop. Shop online.

Update: Available at Adeline on Lovers Lane.

  1. Thanks but ill stick with my Feelgoodz…and their overpriced at $20

  2. While I’d rather spend $20 than $60, I’d MUCH rather buy local and eco-friendly.

  3. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I in finding It really helpful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to offer one thing again and help others such as you aided me.

  4. These flip flops are great–mine are comfortable and look great. The cheapskates that buy the cheap brands that fall apart the first week worn are short sighted, these will outlast 20 pairs of the others.

  5. I had gone through 3 pairs of cheapo($20)flops in the 6 months prior to my Hari Mari’s. After having them for a while, they still feel like new every time I put them on. Beef Jelly!

  6. Great to finally have some flipflop options that aren’t brown. Go Mavs Go!

  7. Love me some Hari Mari. Ordered my first pair online. Great experience from order to arrival. Getting lots of love on the white tops. Came with a sweet bag too. Thanks to you two dallas dudes who’ve made some pretty sweet flip-flops called Hari Mari.

  8. Hari Mari- I hari- love yous. Seriously though I tried on my friends’ wifes’ for a quick get away (that’s another story), and ran right to the store for some Green and Whites.
