    Enjoying Your Gurkee's Sandals
    Imagine the comfort of walking on soft carpet in a stylish sandal that actually molds to the shape of your foot!
    Our Gurkee's rope is superior, high quality custom made for comfortable sandals. We actually purchased our own rope manufacturing facility to create this special rope for your foot comfort. We call it ComfortTwist™. 


    Looking for a nice snug fit?... Never worry because some styles have a comfortable heel strap that can be adjusted by sliding the heel strap up or down the side straps to tighten or loosen your fit.

    montego-dog-400.jpgPeople Will Notice And Ask!
    Gurkee's® are made to wear to dinner events, go shopping, around the house or walk on the beach.

    Customer after customer tells us that every where they go, someone usually stops them to ask where they got their sandals. With over 30 years in the market and now worn around the world, these sandals have never went out of style.

    Drop them in the ocean or pool? Just fish them right off the water because they float.

    Machine Wash and Dry
    Chlorine and salt water resistant, float in the water and if you step in dirt or mud, just throw them in the wash with your laundry and dry in the dryer then you're ready for another day. How many other sandals and shoes can you do that with?
    Specially Designed Rope
    Why are Gurkee's so soft and stylish for over 30 years? Casual never goes out of style so we put style into casual. Your Gurkee's are handmade in a state-of-the-art facility in Morgantown, WV. This where your sandals become a reality with the first step, which is with our custom designed rope from carpet yarn we call Comfort Twist™ rope. This rope is specially twisted to be a soft comfortable twist friendly to your feet, then carefully handmade by local Artisans through many different steps heat welding them by hand to create a work of rope art that you can wear.
    Wear a work of art.... 
    Gurkee's Voted by WV Artisans as the "Best of West Virginia"
    The Tamarack only displays and sells products that are judged and then voted on by a Jury of fellow Artisans to be included in the Tamarack and carry the title "the Best of West Virginia". We are proud to say that that the Gurkee's you wear are a work of handmade rope art and part of the "the Best of West Virginia".
    History About Handmade In USA
    Your Gurkee's Sandals are the Original Rope Sandals sold in mass production since 1984.
    In 2009 Gurkee's was purchased by Ray Sickles of Morgantown, WV USA.
    Later in 2010 to improve product quality, consistency, better deliverability, product flexibility and manufacturing control, Gurkee's manufacturing was moved from the Mexican manufacturer in Juarez Mexico to Sickles' home town of Morgantown, WV USA.
    In Morgantown, the product was improved and engineered to provide the most comfortable fit, quality, consistency and durability than ever. The footbed was re-designed to a friendly foot shape for a better fit, the attention to detail was improved by hiring local American Artisans to provide expert quality control. In addition, a rope manufacturing facility was added in Morgantown to be able to provide a nice soft Comfort Twist™ rope. The yarn in the rope is purchased solely in the USA and we now have the ability to create rope in a multitude of color combinations, blends, twists and colors.
    Gurkee's® Sandals are made of soft polypropylene carpet yarn from South Eastern USA. This yarn is trucked to our facility in Morgantown, WV where it is twisted into a soft 3 strand rope with approximately 3,000 soft poly fibers.

    2. Very narrow feet  star rating

      Posted by G. Seis on 3rd Jul 2019

      I find it very difficult to purchase footwear because my feet are 4A-5A narrow, but wearing my new pair of Neptune rope sandals I find just a little slippage.
      I bought my first pair in the last 70's or early 80's from a vendor at a craft fair in Spring Green, WI, & I love them so much they are the only footwear I wear all summer. This is the first pair that fits most comfortably.

      I've been buying Gurkee's sandals for years and I'm never disappointed. The pair last order were too snug so I sent them back for an exchange. It was quick and problem free. The replacements fit perfect. I get compliments on them everywhere. We nickname them the "Jesus Cruisers" haha.

    7. Comfortable Sandals  star rating

      Posted by Gary Avery on 26th Apr 2018

      Most comfortable sandals yet. They come in sizes large enough and as extra widths to really fit my big feet.

    8. Great Fit  star rating

      Posted by Gary Avery on 8th Mar 2018

      Originally bought a pair of rope sandals from Vern on Gruenwald at a music festival MANY years ago in Florida. Been wearing such sandals year-round. Unfortunately, he passed and I had to find another source.
      Tried Nomadic State of Mind for several years, but they don't offer extra wide sizing on their rope sandals and my feet have grown out.
      So stinking happy to find Gurkee's as they have a great quality with extra wide on their sandals. Back to being extremely happy with my rope sandals throughout the year.

    9. Love at 1st feel and site  star rating

      I never ask someone were they get there shoes, but curiosity was killing me.

    10. Great American Product  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 14th Apr 2015

      These sandals are awesome. They look great. If you where them out, women WILL compliment you. It's a fact. Pretty comfortable, especially after they get worn in. Definitely recommend goind size up for everyone. I'm a 10.5 and the 11's barely fit me. They wouldn't fit an 11 size foot easily. The only negatives I have are that the sandals can move around a little and get out place. Makes it uncomfortable to walk on until you readjust. That's literally it. Awesome buy.
