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. Creating a flip-flop so minimal the difference between them on and off was almost invisible. Jesse, fueled 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.
