Goldens are currently only shipping throughout New Zealand & Australia. If you're currently in Australia please jump over to our Aussie website: HERE
As this little business of ours grows, we can't wait to expand further and get Goldens on the feet of jandal lovers the world over - but for now, it's New Zealand and Australia only, we hope you understand!

For generations, Kiwis have been fixing their jandals using a bread-tag. Becaue those tiny round plugs just ALWAYS pull through, causing an unwanted blowout. The bread tag simply slotted onto the plug bit on the underside of the jandal to stop it from pulling through the base. We have taken inspiration from this piece of No. 8 wire kiwi ingenuity and designed a jandal with the bread-tag already built in! A larger stronger bread-tag shaped plug that won't pull through - it's bloody genius!

Want to get the most out of your Goldens? Well along with whispering goodnight to them make sure you treat them well! When not in use, chuck them in the shade or inside. Like any product, long periods of direct heat / sunlight can cause damage. If ya need to clean your Goldens, just use a bit of warm soapy water. Do not use any harsh cleaning products. Do not soak in water. And most importantly, don't tug on the strap to see how strong it is! We have done this for you and all you'll end up doing is stretching the strap. Show ya Goldens some love and they'll be ya feets best mate. Golden.

We have a fantastic team of kiwi product and manufacturing experts all working in a team led by none other than Kiwi dad, jandal enthusiast and good all round bloke @HowToDAD (Jordan Watson). We have worked together for the last 3years in developing and testing Goldens! Designed in New Zealand, manufactured in China, independently strength tested and sent out from our New Zealand storage facility for you to enjoy. Golden.

The new Golden G2's will be shipping from December 09th onwards. Once your order is placed delivery will be within 3 to 5 working days. Christmas order cut off date is Dec 15th.
