OluKai Footwear is all about Inspiration and Destination


By. Steve Hartman


Aloha and welcome to a little blog about Olukai Footwear. Olukai is Hawaiian-inspired footwear for those who enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle in a comfortable climate.


Olukai gets his name from combining two Hawaiian words:


               Olu – Comfort

            Kai – Ocean


These words have a meaning that goes deeper than their literal translation. They are both inspirational and a place where we desire to go. It’s through this mindset that the people at Olukai believe strongly in responsibility to their environment and are committed to respecting the people and culture of Hawai’i.


Each OluKai product has a specific meaning and reason behind its name. Their land based footwear are under the Mauka Collection meaning Toward the Land and their water based footwear like flip flops are under the Makai Collection which means Toward the Ocean.


Olukai Footwear Collections


To highlight one of the great OluKai features in the Mauka Collection, you’ll find the Moloa Sandals which are built with a durable leather and breathable upper. The main feature is the Drop-In Heel which allows the wearer to slip their foot in and wear it like a shoe or fold down the heelstay and wear it like a sandal.

The Ohana Flip Flops which are included in the Makai Womens Collection is a soft flip flop with a compression-molded EVA midsole and soft ICEVA Drop-In Footbed for excellent comfort and support. Ohana means family and so this Ohana Flip Flip is great for everyday style wherever you find yourself amongst friends and family.

These were a few highlight on the OluKai Brand. If you’re looking for a better class of footwear that has its roots in the ocean and is connected to history, community and the planet, then you’ll want to nestle your feet into a pair of OluKais.
