Postcard from the Amazon

Dear Indosole, I am writing to you from the Amazon. Its been a crazy trip to get here, Bali-Kuala-Paris-Madrid-Rio-Saopaolo-Belem and finally Macapa where the journey continues by boat. It took me almost 4 days of traveling by plane, bus, taxi, and boat to get to the opening of the amazon river where the Famous Pororoca tidal bore starts. Apart from all the traveling, the trip is exactly how i like them: lost in the middle of nowhere, with a hammock as a bed, surrounded by the craziest wildlife, and going to surf the most original type of wave. We surfed Read more...

Welcome to Balifornia

We are proud to introduce our 2014 line "Welcome to Balifornia." Balifornia fuses the best parts of East and West; the insatiable Californian spirit of wanderlust combined with the rich tradition and vibrant colors of Bali, Indonesia. With a five year reputation of re-purposing waste tires into soles for footwear, Indosole has taken resourceful fashion to the next level. Our designers have teamed up with Indonesian batik specialists and worked overtime to incorporate this one-of-a-kind fabric into our shoes and apparel for Spring/Summer 2014. The process of creating batik is truly organic, and involves a two-stage dipping process. It leaves Read more...

Dream Big – Smile Wide

Made Mariasa Karbit (nickname “Karbit”), is a young Bali-Born man with a lot of talent and a permanent and contagious smile. The Indosole crew has sponsored Karbit for surfing since 2010. He is currently attending Universitas Mahasaraswati Denpasar, and is studying economics and entrepeneurism.

Meet Your Makers

Indonesia is a mecca for talented craftspeople, and the Balinese people are some of the best in the world at working with their hands. Their top export is handmade furniture and arts and crafts, yet despite a highly skilled workforce, Bali is not known for footwear production. In fact, the Indosole factory may be the only commercial shoe manufacturer on the island. Since 2010, Indosole has employed over 20 full time Balinese and Javanese artisans to help craft Indosole shoes. They are an awesome group of people with a ton of talent, and even bigger hearts - they’re the rock Read more...
