Footwear & Accessories for Adventurers
In 2001, with their life's contents in backpacks, the Forkan family embarked on a trip around the world, exploring and volunteering with local charities. Between swimming in the Indian Ocean and hiking in nearby mountains, the Forkan's oldest children Rob and Paul began visualising travel products that they needed but couldn't find.
On Boxing Day 2004, Rob and Paul's lives were forever changed when they lost their parents in the tsunami that hit Sri Lanka. As they grew into adults, they were driven to create something unique in honour of their parents. Every product in this range of footwear and accessories from Gandys is inspired by those early visualisations and made for those who were born for adventure.
