Sanuk x Surfrider Launch Ocean-Inspired Earth Day Footwear Collection

Limited-Time Capsule Collab Helps Protect Our Happy Places

GOLETA, Calif., April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In honor of Earth Day, Sanuk®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), has unveiled an ocean-inspired capsule footwear collection with longtime partner, the Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves, and beaches for all people. In addition to the collection, Sanuk has elevated the partnership through a donation of $50,000 in 2024 to the Surfrider Foundation in support of its mission to protect your happy places.

The Sanuk x Surfrider capsule collection features four beach-ready styles. Among them are the latest iterations of Sanuk’s best-selling sidewalk surfers: the men’s Donny x Surfrider (available in Khaki) and the women’s Donna x Surfrider (available in Taupe). The collab also brings forth an all-new, ultra comfy sandal: the Ziggy Switchfit x Surfrider, available in Grey for both men and women, with a customizable strap and a padded toe post. The water-friendly collaboration drops just in time for warmer weather adventures and summer fun.

The collection is a reflection of Sanuk’s ongoing commitment to innovate footwear by incorporating more preferred materials. Sanuk x Surfrider includes quick-dry nylon mesh upper made from post-consumer recycled fishing nets, recycled ARIAPRENE® foam padding with perforations and lining made from GRS-certified recycled polyester for ultimate comfort and breathability. The styles also feature water-friendly high rebound Soft Top Foam footbeds with 20% BLOOM foam derived from repurposed algae and sponge rubber outsoles made with 53% recycled material.

“Our goal for this partnership extends beyond creating a super rad, ocean-inspired footwear collection. It’s about building awareness and encouraging advocacy with environmentally conscious consumers from coast to coast this Earth Month and beyond,” said Katie Pruitt, Brand Director at Sanuk. “We aspire to spark a movement, encouraging others to get involved with Surfrider’s mission to preserve our coastlines, whether it’s volunteering at a local beach cleanup or becoming a member of the foundation.”

Since 2016, Sanuk and Surfrider have worked together in the fight for clean water and healthy beaches. This long-standing, synergistic partnership taps into the heart of the surf community, water people and eco-minded consumers. Year after year, Sanuk and Surfrider have utilized creative ways to activate and inspire change together, from beach cleanups to creating educational content to unique product collaborations and more.

“As we celebrate our 40-year anniversary, we extend our gratitude to our outstanding partners like Sanuk, who continuously support us as coastal defenders and help us share our mission through impactful activations,” said the Surfrider Foundation’s CEO, Dr. Chad Nelsen. “We’re proud to reveal our latest collaboration with Sanuk in alignment with Earth Month as we showcase our collective dedication to protect our cherished coastlines.”

The limited-time Sanuk x Surfrider collection launches today exclusively on and retails for $50$70. For more information about the Sanuk x Surfrider collection, visit or follow along on Instagram @sanuk #smileon and @surfrider.
