Curious Red is a brand dedicated to creating high-quality, durable, and functional footwear. Their flagship product, Maku sandals, are designed for all-day comfort and versatility, suitable for urban life and outdoor adventures alike. These sandals are inspired by the Tarahumara, a native American tribe known for long-distance running in minimalist footwear called “Huaraches.”
Maku sandals feature a custom sole, which is flexible, abrasion-resistant, and provides excellent grip. The footbed options include genuine suede leather or vegan suede leather with advanced color fastness properties. The straps are made from a special nautical fiber, known for its durability and softness, providing a comfortable cotton-like feel.
The proprietary RedLink™ fastening system allows for a perfect fit, with individually adjustable straps. The design respects the natural spacing of the toes and hugs the heel, offering protection from objects and dirt. The sole is designed to provide just the right shock absorbance without compromising on ground feel. Maku sandals ensure easy slip-on functionality and all-day comfort.
Curious Red was founded by Will, Hanane, and David, who share a passion for timeless products and a commitment to reducing waste. The brand takes a stand against fast fashion, focusing on crafting high-quality products designed to last for years. Their journey began with a handmade pair of sandals and eventually led to a successful Kickstarter campaign, where they sold over 1,300 Makus.
