If you are here on our blog, then you probably already know that you can buy our tire soled footwear and other products directly on Indosole.com. But did you know you can also shop Indos at select retailers around the globe? To find them, all you have to do is type a zip code into our handy Retailer Locator and voila!―a list of retailers and their respective addresses will pop up for you. If you are the type of shopper who prefers to see, touch, and try on several options before settling on your perfect pair of Indos, this might be the best option for you.
Today we are highlighting four retailers who we love doing business with: Sports Basement in NorCal, Poseidon Paddle & Surf in SoCal, and Yoga Barn and Drifter in Bali. Honestly, we love all our retailers! We just want to give you a taste of the many rad businesses around the world that you can visit to browse Indos and so much more.
One of our oldest accounts, Poseidon has been carrying Indos for five years. We love their driftwood decor, attention to detail, and all-around positive attitude. On top of that, they have been willing to invest in our story and product offering by giving us serious real estate within the store, which we are very grateful for.
Poseidon can be found on Ocean Avenue―a tourist-heavy area in Santa Monica, California―and their customers come from all over. The Innertubed and Grass Mat are the most popular sandals among their male customers and the Ikhanna is the favorite among the ladies.
Brothers Christian and Matt Shubin, originally from Malibu, are behind Poseidon. Christian also happens to rock out on the guitar and sing, and he put on a heck of a show last month at the SurfAid Cup - Malibu 2016, an event we supported that raised funds for SurfAid's Mother & Child programs in Indonesia.
Sports Basement in San Francisco, California, is in its first year of selling Indos and has chosen to start with a core of sandals―the Tan Burlap, Double 6 and Innertubed for Men and the Pink Palm Innertubed for Women.
Joining forces with Sports Basement has been an amazing opportunity as we share the same values of taking care of our San Francisco community while providing great products and educating people about living happy and sustainable lives. Together with Sports Basement and the SF Surfrider Foundation we host a beach cleanup and BBQ at Indosole's HQ in the Outer Sunset, which is something we look forward to every year.
Yoga Barn, like many places in Ubud, Bali, is a beautiful place to be. The natural light, greenery, and the structure itself make for an incredible environment to practice yoga or just hang out.
Aside from classes Yoga Barn also has a cafe and a shop with a well-curated mix of products for yogis and vegans. We are so excited they have included us in the mix for two years now. You can find a wide array of Indos there, including the Women's Ikhanna and Kelapa stocked in a number of colors, and the Men's Grass Mat sandal.
Yoga Shop, their second location on busy Hanoman Street, also carries Indos. The staff there are just as kind and helpful as they are at the Barn. If you are into yoga, meditation, music and dance, Yoga Barn holds an annual international event called the Bali Spirit Festival. We usually set up a booth there so swing and say hello to the Indo crew if you attend!
The last retailer we want to highlight is Drifter Surf Shop & Cafe, the epitome of cool. Located on the main drag in Seminyak, Bali, Drifter has been carrying Indos for over four years. Aside from Men's sandals, customers can't get enough of our Indo trucker hat. Drifter in Seminyak is also the only retailer on the island that carries the Kota, our signature high top with a zipper going down the side for easy on and off.
It is almost impossible to not spend hours browsing their great selection of products. If you are visiting Bali to surf and would prefer to avoid the crowds, not to worry. Drifter opened a second location in Uluwatu with an art gallery, cafe, and lawn area in the back for movie showings and gatherings. This is a space that is definitely worth checking out.
Thank you to these retailers and to all our retailers around the world for the support, for educating your customers about our repurposed tire soles, and for contributing to the conscious consumerism movement!
