The Malibu mission is a fairly simple one: to create the most comfortable, stylish and modern sandals on the planet. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains and partnered with the California Wildlife Center, Malibu is dedicated to cruelty-free production and uses only PETA-approved materials. As the saying goes you have to learn from the past to get a better future. That is why the Malibu is designed around the historical Mexican Huarache and re invented with new modern materials. We think Malibu has done a great job in carrying out their objective. They have for sure created one of the most comfortable forms of footwear to date.
