WHAT WE'RE ABOUT..
The Bondi Shoe Club exists to make super comfy and colourful footwear that is cruelty free & environmentally responsible, with the higher purpose of supporting Australia's beautiful ocean and the Great Barrier Reef.
Our Co-Founder, Fran, went looking for a super comfy and colourful pair of shoes that stood out from the sea of black and white sneakers. A casual slip on for the weekend or a travel adventure that showed off her colourful side. Alas, this shoe was nowhere to be found. She searched high and low to no avail. What was she to do? Well, with youthful naivete on her side, and an innate love of fashion, she thought why not create her own. A casual, beachy slip on shoe that's so comfortable you want to wear them as slippers. Somehow, she persuaded her kind and supportive fiancé (who’s writing this) to get involved and from there, The Bondi Shoe Club was born.
We wanted the brand to reflect our values so with Fran being a vegan, what else could the shoes be but cruelty free and ethical (see more about this on the Our Shoes page). Furthermore, we are both ocean lovers and keen divers so felt strongly about the business having a higher purpose attached to the ocean. We carefully chose the Australian Marine Conservation Society because it’s the only charity solely dedicated to the preservation of Australia’s incredible marine life and their homes. We're so pleased to give 5% of profits to the ‘Fight for our Reef’ Campaign and can't wait to build the business and amplify our message so we can give more!
The three lines in our logo represent the elements Earth, Air and Water and embody our love of nature in the brand. We care deeply about our social and environmental responsibility so all of our packaging is biodegradable or compostable. In an effort to be as sustainable and responsible as possible we’ve constructed the shoes out of material that can be broken down and recycled. (See more about this on the Our Shoes page)

Each pair has been carefully designed with comfort in mind to take you from day to night and beach to city while being perfectly transeasonal so you can be part of the club all year round.
