Our Story

The idea of Floafers was first brainstormed back in 2014 as our founder Hayes Brumbeloe (in the photo to the right) was packing for a trip to the Bahamas.

He thought to himself "how nice would it be to have a pair of stylish loafers you could wear on the beach and in the water?”. After searching the internet and not really finding much, especially under $50, he realized it was time to put his Entrepreneurship Degree to good use and design his own!

Fast forward three years, and we are proud to introduce our patented water loafers for both men and women called Floafers!!

Our Team

Our founder, Hayes Brumbeloe (camera left), was an Entrepreneurship major at Western Carolina University where he cemented his desire to one day start his own business. His focus & dedication to making Floafers a household name ultimately led to his decision of partnering with Dan Rubertone.

Dan (camera right) is well known for being very detail oriented & focused on maximizing results across the board; he continuously drives our team to be the best they can possibly be. A graduate of the State University of New York College at Brockport he met Hayes 5 years ago when he made his move to Dallas, TX.

The future is bright for team Floafers!

Our Mission

With YOU in mind, we have diligently been designing and redesigning for the last two years to bring you the most functional and fashion forward shoe design that the EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) market has ever seen!

We have combined the durability, scuff resistance and anti-microbial nature of EVA foam with timeless aesthetics and practical utility.

From the array of color options and classic styling to the convenient utility hole allowing you to attach your Floafers, when not in use, we have made it our mission to create the ideal shoe for the fashionably aware outdoors men and women!
