It started in St. Barths, where a wandering Carly was in search of a simple, elegant sandal. But with empty hands and bare feet, she returned to the sand and joined her husband, Jesse, under a Tiki hut. There she wondered and there he dreamed. And then came a beautiful, simple idea: a beautiful, simple sandal. Designed to complement life, not complicate or interrupt it. And so the story of TKEES began. They knew quality and detail would never be left behind; they hunted for manufacturers who could bring their vision to life. And so their dream took them to Brazil, where the first pair of TKEES were developed, and continue to be made today. From that first moment beneath the tiki hut, there have been more ideas, new designs, and a bigger family. But all the while, TKEES has never abandoned the point: to live a simple, elevated life. To live a life with less, worth more. In TKEES.
