about us

Sandal tree is a Hawaii Company celebrating 34 years of Funwear for your Feet!  On April 1, 1983, Paula Sussex bought Sandal Tree from Chris Hemmeter, a visionary, who built the first fantasy hotel, Hyatt Regency Maui.  Opening the first store with one sandal in 4 colors, Sandal Tree grew with each new hotel Mr. Hemmeter developed. 


Sandal Tree has a special selection of footwear and accessories often being the first to introduce brands and novelties to the islands.  Kama‘aina’s and tourists alike know a trip to Sandal Tree will tantalize their senses and add a unique twist to their wardrobe. Where else would you find a sandal with a dog, strawberry or elephant heel…? Or a high heel sandal with an invisible arch….. Or a cantilevered heel!  What about a handbag made of beer tabs…..or a pair of Maui snow boots?   Our mission is to offer quality merchandise in a fun atmosphere helped by friendly people.  A trip to Sandal Tree is an experience in fun and entertainment.


If you are craving a trip to Sandal Tree and the flights are all booked, browse our website or call our 800 number and we will be happy to show you our latest arrivals, update you on the weather and help bring Hawaii to you.
