We are a small USA made company that puts our hands towards quality and our hearts towards our customers. Bedrock Sandals was founded by two friends with a shared passion for the outdoors and geology. Bedrock Sandals officially got Kickstarted in June 2011 with an original running sandal model. Today we are based in Charlottesville, Virginia and proud to build Bedrock Sandals locally with high grade USA made materials. We proudly donate one percent of our sales to help conserve and restore and environment though 1% for the Planet. In March 2013, after two years of improving and refining our sandal technology and materials, we introduced our Lifetime Sole Warranty.
