In the summer of 2009, husband and wife, Jesse and Carly Burnett, created the clever and infamous sandal line called TKEES. All Carly ever wanted was a flip-flop that would “disappear” on the wearer’s foot. She says, “We’d walk out the door barefoot if we could, but it’s not appropriate for every occasion.”
Carly graduated with a degree from the School of Visual Arts and Jesse had a solid background in business and real estate. The innovative duo used a simple thong sandal as their base and designed a collection that was put into cosmetic-themed categories: Foundations, Creams, Liners, Glosses, etc. and that’s how TKEES were branded “cosmetics for your feet.”
Carly was never heavily into makeup but found inspirations inside her mother’s cosmetic case and around the world in different makeup stores and cosmetic counters. Customers will find that TKEES sandals will complement any skin tone and any outfit. Finding the right shade is as easy as slipping your feet into another pair.
Jesse and Carly create TKEES that are natural and organic so that “everything fits together.” Simply slip them off and on! TKEES are available in so many different colors and textures that you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. The couple has stayed true to their mission. Customers love TKEES for their casual elegance and ease of wear.
TKEES sandals have been featured in InStyle, People Style Watch, WWD, In Touch, Cosmopolitan, Life & Style and so many more. Celebrities who are loyal fans of these stylish flip flops include Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Blake Lively and tons others. With so many colors to choose from deciding might be hard, but TKEES will definitely put a smile on tour face.
