    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.

      These shoes are SO comfortable and lightweight, you almost forget you’re wearing them. They dry quickly if you get them wet and they’re great to wear to do just about anything! Plus they’re handmade in the USA which is amazing. I love my Gurkees!

    2. Best service  star rating

      Posted by Lindsey Bixenman on 14th Jul 2019

      I needed to place this order and a very small amount of time. I contacted with the company Direct and explained my situation and they bumped my order in front of others do to me only needing the one pair of sandals. Not only did they do this but they had them handmade and in the mail that very same day. Thank you so much again for rushing my order and making my sister-in-law extremely happy for these amazing sandals on her birthday!

    3. Love my Gurkee's  star rating

      The color is a little darker than I thought, but still absolutely LOVE them! I like the idea that they will go with anything I wear and are so very comfortable! Great for Renaissance Faires and all around comfort. I get many compliments on them!

      My last pair lasted for about 18years. They were purchased in Arkansas and over the years traveled to L.A. , Ft Lauderdale and everywhere in between.

    5. Nice for Ren Faire  star rating

      Posted by Rita Adamitis on 15th Jun 2018

      I had been looking for the perfect sandals to compliment my pirate outfit for the Ren Faire and these sandals definitely fit the bill. I was was a little concerned that they are slippery on my wood and tiled floors, but I purchased them to use outside so I'm sure they're going to be fine. Also, since I haven't worn them at a full day of Ren Faire, I'm concerned that with no arch support that my feet and back may get sore. I'll have to update my review at a later date.

    6. Like walking barefooted  star rating

      Posted by Tera on 17th Aug 2017

      Not only are these sandals beautiful. It's like walking bare footed. They are the most comfortable shoes I own. My friends call them my Jesus shoes. lol I own 4 different styles myself. And have given as gifts to 3 of my friends as well. Wear them one week and you will be hooked.

    7. My Comfortable Forever Footwear  star rating

      Posted by Vickie Wood on 1st May 2017

      Can't say enough about these sandals but I'll give it a whirl. Love the fit! Love the style! Love the quality! Love the comments and compliments from folks wondering where I got them. I've gotten a pair for my daughter in the past which she still wears every summer, now this pair for myself, and next I will get some for my son. If you've never tried a pair of Gurkees footwear your feet are missing out.
