Cobian is Comfort!
Big rewards tend to come from humble beginnings. Twenty one years ago John Cobian went from running a leading sandal company to starting his own in his parents’ garage. The company Cobian is now a frontrunner in the sandal industry and continues to grow rapidly due to their commitment to producing the finest footwear in the world. In an industry where companies tend to lose focus with their mass array of products, Cobian sticks with what they know: comfortable and stylish footwear.
Cobian is not your typical footwear company. They are privately owned and family operated. A portion of their products also come from their own factory in Guadalajara, Mexico. The Fall 2010 season is exciting because it marks Cobian’s debut of a men’s shoe line and a women’s boot line. 2010 also is the beginning of Cobian’s partnership with Beautiful Feet – an international non-profit group setting out to make sure no one goes shoeless.
Cobian continues to collaborate with OAM revolutionizing the traction pad sandal and Cobian has now collaborated with B Swim creating the perfect sandals to compliment B Swim’s chic bikinis.
Since their beginning Cobian has offered a 100% guarantee, which has created many lifelong Cobian users. Cobian has gone from Soulwear, to Pure Life, to Walk With Us, to their new slogan, Cobian is Comfort. Cobian’s passion and endeavor is to create the world’s most comfortable footwear while maintaining a meticulous eye for style.
The mission is simple: provide the customer with footwear durable enough to be
worn at the beach but refined enough to be worn in the city. While remaining true to Cobian’s surf roots, it is also their desire to branch out into the ever-expanding fashion market; representing surf in the fashion world and fashion in the surf world.
At the heart of the Cobian brand is a passion for people. Therefore Cobian employees will have the utmost respect and integrity for each other and those they serve: the customer. Not only are we to value our customers, but we are also to value our planet and be good stewards of what God has given us.
The most comfortable sandals and shoes out there!
