Our Story

The story of Bumpers starts with two backpackers on a surfing trip off the coast of the Indian Ocean. When they weren’t surfing they were strolling along the streets of the village they were staying in and saw all the locals wearing the same flip-flops. They felt compelled to try them and each bought 
themselves a pair of their own. The flip-flops they purchased were much more comfortable than any other shoe they had ever worn! They couldn’t bring themselves to wear any other shoe, so they wanted to take these great flip-flops and share them with people all around the world. That’s how Bumpers were born. In the last few years, more than 150,000 pairs of Bumpers have been sold all over the world. Now, we are excited and proud to be launching a new online store for the US market.
