The TKEES story started with a lot of love and a little inspiration. Carly was on the hunt for a simple yet elegant sandal with her husband Jesse. Surprisingly, on an island renowned for its curated style, she returned to the beach empty handed. As the sand lingered on her skin, an idea was sparked.
Bubbling with excitement, Carly shared her idea of starting a sandal company unlike any other with Jesse. Creating a flip-flop so minimal the difference between them on and off was almost invisible. Jesse, fuelled by his love for Carly, believed in her and her idea. Under a tiki hut, the couple began exchanging ideas of what could be, and from there, the name TKEES was born.
Carly is not a woman who is over-accessorized or over-styled. The most effective design is the one that is the most simple. Pushing the boundaries through a simple silhouette is a challenge that TKEES welcomes with each collection. Jesse and Carly believe in family. Not only their own, but the TKEES family they created.
