Sandals: A new sandal that allows people to wear sandals while walking.
In the first installment of our “Proud To Be an American” series, we celebrate our diversity.
In this episode, we discuss the Sandals collection, the design of the sandals, and why sandals are such a great way to go barefoot.
Today, we talk to the founder of the company, Sam Sacks, about the company’s origins and why it’s such a big deal to wear a sandal while walking in the outdoors.
We wanted to take a step back from the news cycle and take a deep dive into the history of the brand.
It was our way of saying that the sandal was a symbol of independence.
That there was no longer a barrier between us and the world.
So it’s really about the connection between the sandallist and the country she walks in.
Sandals are very much a part of who we are.
We all wear them, and they’re a part, and we’re proud to be American.
Sandal makers and producers like Sam Sack have been making sandals for generations.
But it wasn’t until the 1960s that the brand was able to expand into new markets.
It’s a very, very diverse industry.
In fact, the American sandal is not only made by women, it’s made by people of color.
And that’s what we want to talk about today.
What’s your background in footwear?
Sacks: I have been in the shoe industry for almost 50 years.
My grandfather and great grandfather made shoes, and I grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Boston.
My dad was a shoe salesman and shoe manufacturer.
It just wasn’t the norm back then.
We didn’t have a lot of options to buy shoes.
In my hometown, there were very few options to purchase shoes.
So I was fortunate enough to go to a very well-known shoe store that had a lot more variety.
I was a big fan of the classic shoe company, Dainty Shoes.
The shoes were super cheap, and the quality was outstanding.
I was always trying to buy my own shoes.
But my dad always had these guys, these very smart, very experienced guys who knew what they were doing.
I remember a few of my high school friends and I would go to Dainy Shoes to pick up a pair of shoes.
It felt really good to be a part-time shopper.
I always wanted to get out there and do something different, and Dainys were the only ones I could buy.
It wasn’t like they were going to buy me a pair for a week or two and put me on a pedestal.
So that’s how I started.
My mom was also an employee at Dainies, and my dad was also working there.
I just happened to be the youngest person at the time, and she took me to Dains and bought me a shoe.
I didn’t really have much choice.
But I was just so young, and it was an incredible experience.
I loved the idea of being able to get to know people that way, and learn about the industry.
So you’re still at the helm of Sandals, right?
Saks: I’m the founder and CEO of Sandal, and yes, I still run the company.
But, yeah, I’ve always been a part time shopper, and now I’ve been a full-time one for a number of years.
And the reason why is because the people that work there don’t always pay enough money for the shoes that I’m selling.
So now, I’m making shoes that people can afford, that they can wear all the time.
That’s what I love.
So we’re doing a lot with this brand.
I’ve always loved that idea that people come to our stores and buy shoes that they could buy on their own.
So in our stores, we have different types of sandals.
We have sandals made of a lot different materials, and you can find all sorts of different styles of sandal.
And I think that people are more likely to buy sandals with a different material.
Because they have a different aesthetic, and a different feeling.
What I’m seeing now is that more and more people are realizing that the quality of a sandals is very important.
Sandalls are a part that represents you.
I think a lot people feel that they are very proud to wear their sandals and they can tell the world that they’re proud of their heritage and that they want to make a statement about who they are.
Sandallists are a way for people to show their country that they support the United States.
But we also have the sandalist, the person who’s in charge of the shoes.
They take care of the production, and there are people who make the shoes and put them together.
They make sure that the shoes are all in good shape.
We also have people who have
