The Cruzers Lacing System

Our Cruzers lacing system uses a streamlined nylon lacing system that is easy to adjust and control. Utilizing the Powersleeve, this lacing system keeps its proper shape so it never slides around on the foot. Our custom-made webbing is durable, silky smooth, and extremely comfortable on the foot. Like all of our lacing systems, the Cruzers lacing system is fully adjustable to every foot so you can get the perfect fit.


Designed By You

The New Cruzer Builder system allows you to create your perfect sandal. Pick from several different sole types and thickness to make a sandal that is right for you. Combined with various color choices for the nylon webbing and connector, you can make the exact design you want. All Cruzers are made to order based on your specifications right here at our Santa Cruz CA workshop.



Effortless Footwear

The lightweight minimal design of Cruzers make them ideal for daily activities. These sandals are made to Cruz, and you will love every minute of them. With the all new Cruzer Builder, make your sandals look as good on your feet as they feel. No matter what combination of colors and soles you choose, you can effortlessly move in style..

warrior sole cruzers

The warrior sole cruzers do not have a countersunk toe plug, which is a bother. I would try the maximus sole next time. The straps expand a lot if they get wet. The lacing system and adjustments are easy; being a single long strap is nice.

Great Minimalist Sandal!

I've been wearing minimalist shoes for a while and finally wanted to give minimalist sandals at try. I started with the Cruzers before spending more on the other models, and I'm very pleased with them. I found them to be very comfortable, the sizing was true, and the adjustments take a bit of fiddling, but once you've got them fitted you're good to go. Love the light weight and the security of the heel strap!

Best Shamma sandals i've owned

These are my 5th pair of Shamma's, and probably the most comfortable yet. I got the Cruzer builder version with the Maimus soles in leather. Just thick enough not to go floppy with a hint of ground feel. The lacing is soft, and at least for walking stays secure without the need for adding power straps, though runners might want to add them. For me, the leather footbed is worth the extra cost, I won't be wading through streams in mine.

Nice sandals but

Pretty expensive for what they are. Feels like wearing flip flops with a thinner sole.

Received wrong order

I was so excited about these custom sandals, but when I received them, they weren't what I ordered. I'm so disappointed!! I ordered them with the brown leather footbed that I paid the $20 extra for, but received them with the plain rubber footbed. My skin reacts poorly to rubber like that so I cannot wear them as is, nor do I want to as I PAID FOR THE LEATHER! I have sent them numerous emails (as there is no phone number to contact) and haven't heard back from anyone. I'm so frustrated and disappointed with this company and will not be making any other purchases from them, and do NOT recommend them. Steer clear!!

Great minimalist sandals

These sandals are thin and have great ground feel, but absorbent enough for walking comfortably on engineered surfaces. If your heel has any shape then you maynot need the power sleeve for a more classic huarache look without worrying about them slipping off. Broken in within the first 3 miles. Super comfortable.

Had to order something else ......

I saw that your production time is 1-8 days. I received mine 15 days after ordering. You might want to tell your customers that it takes two weeks from order to delivery. Seems customary these days for faster shipping time. I had to order a pair of sandals from Amazon for my trip. Sorry - returning ...
