Founded and designed by 60's surf culture and footwear industry veteran, Californians is reminiscent of the laid-back culture of our Golden State's early days. We design tried-and-true classics with contemporary twists. Our timeless styles exude modern ease - just like your favorite pair of Levi's jeans. The end result is footwear that spurs conversation, evokes nostalgia, and preserves the era of California's Golden Age.

eco-friendly Californians Vintage Collection shoe box

We are proud to have implemented eco-friendly practices such as our 100% recyclable shoe boxes which are constructed from 100% recycled cardboard and water-based inks which are less harsh on the environment. We also do whatever we can to minimize our waste. For example, rather than throwing away our leather and materials scraps, we repurpose what we can internally and then pass along anything else to other businesses or local artisans. As environmentally and ethically conscious members of the fashion community, we’ve made it our priority leave a positive footprint on the industry.
