In October of 2015, Michael Mader suffered a traumatic brain injury when he fell off his longboard. In the months of recovery that followed, he developed the idea for a sock company that could help the homeless - recognizing that his fate could have been different if he didn't have a support system around him.
The following May, he got together with Sam Harper to bring Hippy Feet to life.
Michael and Sam
Michael Mader | Founder
When he's not working on Hippy Feet, you can find Michael watching hockey, drinking too much coffee, and listening to Frank Ocean. He's the proud father of 3 cats, and yes - he would love to show you photos of them.
Sam Harper | Co-Founder
Sam is a dabbler. He dabbles in most things except dabbling, which is something he's wholeheartedly committed to. If he's not making cringe-worthy sock puns at the Hippy Feet office, he can usually be found asking strangers if he can pet their dog.
