Our Story

Ripa® Sandals: Style and Comfort Redefined

We’re a boutique company, woman owned and founded, with a focus on designing crazy comfortable sandals with great style to be worn anytime and anywhere!

Our patented collections are inspired by our customers. The Himalayan, our first collection, was initially conceived to provide comfort and support to athletes who wanted a comfortable sandal to put on after sports. Over the years we’ve discovered that the Himalayan sandals are used not only outside but inside as slippers. We ‘ve learned people of all ages love the luxurious feeling of slipping into the Himalayan which gives them the warmth, comfort and support to wear both at home and about town.

Our customers also asked for a lighter stylish sandal which can be worn casually. So, we created the Sedona sandal- a cork wrapped, triple padded foot bed with colorful straps in a sleek profile.

Know that Ripa® sandal patented designs always combine cushioned foot beds supported by traction, non-marking soles and the color red to support good Karma. An original Ripa Wear sandal is identified by the red incorporated into the sandal’s design.

An important part of our mission- we believe everyone should have shoes on their feet. To that end, each year we donate sandals to natl. and local organizations, such as AmeriCares, Soles4Souls, CT Quest for Peace and Kids in Distressed Situations (KIDS) to name a few.
