Hi Jack Sandals
Hi Jack Sandals was first established in 2010. The idea of creating a sandal brand started when many people were hyped about the fashion trend of the leather-dress shoe. Instead, we rather did the opposite thing by not following the ordinary, began to design and create our own paw-covering leather that was known as sandals.
As time went by, Hi Jack Sandals were progressing and always pushing boundaries to produce new innovations for sandals. Therefore, Hi Jack Sandals represent five core aspects. Namely comfort, ergonomic, artistry, experimental and contemporary.
