  • Gandys Gig with Newton Faulkner

    We have had an action packed summer to say the least here at Gandys! The summer kicked off with Boris Johnson officially opening our new HQ ready for business. The Gandys team have been all over the country hitting up the music festivals to launch our Liberty of London Collaboration.

    The Brothers have also been all over the World spending time in Jamaica at the Branson Centre and visiting an amazing reggae inspired children's home. Most recently they were asked to represent the Queens Young Leaders and spent and afternoon with Prince William & Harry at Buckingham Palace (and of course they had their Gandys on!)

    As a thank you to everyone who has supported us this year and thought we finished the summer with a #GandysGig with an amazing intimate performance from the one and only Newton Faulkner.

  • Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

    Crazy to think that only 2 years ago we were in a bedroom by ourselves and a year ago everyone was in our kitchen. A year ago we moved into Gandys HQ and we now have a great team helping us on our journey... Rob & Paul

  • V - Festival

    This weekend we enjoyed V Festival in the Louder Lounge area, soaking up the British summer sun and strolling around in our flip flops. The amazing headliners to watch were Justin Timberlake all the way from America, home grown Ed Sheeran and The Killers who all took the stage by storm and performed some absolute show stoppers.

    With no mud in sight and only a drop of rain here and there, Gandys were the flip flops to wear.

  • Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust

    On Wednesday 9th July 2014 Rob and Paul were invited to Buckingham Palace for the launch of The Queen’s Young Leaders program. In true Gandys fashion Rob & Paul Rocked up to the Palace wearing their favourite Liberty Printed Flip Flops.Royal rob and Paul1

    Their inspirational story attracted the attention of the Royal’s. Rob & Paul Explained their journey to the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry (who had already heard of Gandys) about their vision to open Children’s Home in Developing Countries Across the world.

    The Duke had told the brothers “That he had lost his mum at the age of 15 but there was always a silver lining and you should dust yourself off and carry on” He applauded what the brothers have achieved and said “keep up the good work” having Married back in 2011 and in 2013 having the arrival of Prince George, The Duke had certainly found his silver lining.

  • Sonisphere Festival

    Joey Belladonna (Anthrax), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and Keith Flint (Prodigy) were all seen donning their flip flops this weekend as Gandys took heavy metal festival Sonisphere by storm.

    Popular ranges with the rock stars were our Studs range and collaboration with Ollie Proudlock’s Serge DeNimes range.

  • Gandys Den

    Yesterday we had the lovely finalists of the "Gandys Den" come down to present their unique flip flop designs to Rob and Paul. Gandys Den has been launched in partnership with the Hampshire Cricket Community Trust in order to give young kids across Hampshire the opportunity to create and present their own unique flip flop design to the brothers with the winning design being presented in front of 24,000 people at the England v. India test match at the Ageas Bowl in July. The winning designs will also be put into production!

    It was a great day, the presentations were all very impressive and the kids showed a ton of confidence, imagination and entrepreneurial spirit! The brothers thought all of the final designs were incredibly creative and want to try and get them all on the high street.

    In the end though, the winning design was Hampshire Ruby! Their design had the edge as it was cricket-inspired and with the upcoming Summer cricket season it was definitely the right place and the right time. The designs were all incredibly well thought out and presented and it was most certainly a close competition!

    Thank you so much to all of the participants for your hard work and creativity!!
