Maku, a business that's based in Holyoke, Massachusetts, manufactures incredibly comfortable sandals that were made for all day wear.

To do this, Maku uses a sole that's flexible, supportive, well-gripped and resistant to punctures -- allowing it to curve to the foot with ease and move seamlessly with its wearer's motions. To pair with this, Maku includes three adjustable straps on top that utilize the simplistic 'RedLink' fasting system and have a cotton-like feel so that the wearer's skin in never irritated.

In addition, the sole has a heel guard that protects the feet dirt or potentially harmful objects -- making it ever more versatile. Having remodeled the comfortable sandals a total of 37 times, Maku's meticulous design has incorporated real-world feedback to ensure that it gets everything just right.
