the beginning

Just a humble little business created by complete accident. 2021 was a shambles of a year for most, but for me it was the start of my chaotic new life as a Mum! So, with pregnancy came sore feet, and with sore feet came the search for a simple shoes to take a load off. Here is what led me to the discovery of 'pillow slides'. The best thing my tired feet could've asked for whilst looking pretty cool as well. So a very heavily pregnant woman, a laptop and a lightbulb moment and we were off! A couple months later a baby boy and a new small business was born.

now days

Funk Monger has come a long way since its humble beginnings of selling on Facebook Market Place. 2 years on and we are a busy online store, alongside  travelling around the country meeting the lovely local people of New Zealand at a select few Markets, Expo's and Shows showing off our Funk Monger Favourites

All orders are still hand packed and shipped  from the Funk Monger warehouse based in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

our mission

At Funk Monger, our mission is to bring fun, affordability, and a touch of playfulness to New Zealanders lives. Our journey began with a pregnant soon-to-be Mum on a mission to find comfortable footwear without breaking the bank.  During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognised the importance and enjoyment of buying locally and supporting small businesses throughout Aotearoa.

We want our customers to experience the same joy and excitement that we felt when opening packages from across the country. At Funk Monger, we are dedicated to selecting products that are not only fun and affordable but also make people feel good and hopefully add a sense of playfulness to their lives. Our product range caters to individuals of all ages, from kids to adults, and our items make ideal gifts that people take pride in giving.

We believe in adding a personal touch to every Funk Monger parcel to show our genuine appreciation for your support. Above all, our commitment is to keep everything affordable, ensuring that everyone can access a little bit of the fresh funk we deliver daily. At Funk Monger, we're not just a business; we're a source of comfort, joy, and affordability, making a positive impact on our customers one package at a time.
