Here are our top sneaker and court shoe recommendations to power your nonstop life.



The Most Comfortable Active Shoes for All-Day Wear


OluKai Holo Men’s Athletic Shoe


Hawaiian tradewinds inspired this lightweight athletic trainer. The Holo features a breathable mesh upper, which allows for superior airflow and helps to keep your feet cool and dry while you chase your next adventure under the warm summer sun. Beyond breathability, Holo has an EVA midsole for added shock absorption, arch support, and a comfortable bounce underfoot. This understated sneaker is the perfect choice for guys who value versatility and effortless wear above all else. Plus, since it’s made with vegan-friendly materials and comes in a lineup of neutral colors, it’s a true win-win.


OluKai Pūnini Men’s Court Shoe


This retro-inspired court shoe was reimagined to suit the island lifestyle. We crafted this handsome style with high-quality, full-grain leather that’s both long-lasting and stylish and perforated detailing on the vamp for added breathability. We also added a ripstop heel for unmatched durability and a hit of color. The interior is lined with a soft microfiber material that wicks away moisture, helping to keep your feet cool and dry. Like all of our sneakers, Pūnini also features a removable and washable footbed made with dual-density anatomical PU insoles that provide cushioned comfort and support. The outsole has a non-marking rubber and herringbone tread pattern for nonstop traction on a variety of surfaces. Pūnini is the go-to for leisurely days and strolls around town.


OluKai Kaholo Men’s & Women’s Athletic Shoe (Launching 04/01)


As refreshing and swift as an ocean breeze, our men’s and women’s newest sneaker, Kāhalo, is made for the adventurous at heart. We engineered the mesh to offer peak breathability and support in key areas and added a shell to the toe area for even more durability. Your feet will thank you.


OluKai Huia Women’s Athletic Shoe


Breathable mesh that lets the ocean air flow through. Our signature Drop-In Heel® so you can wear them as mules post-workout. Washable footbeds to help you keep things fresh and clean after a particularly sweaty workout. The vegan-friendly Huia sneaker is your dream athletic shoe. This lightweight super sneaker can handle bike rides, jungle hikes, and your sunrise HIIT class without skipping a beat. Named after an ancient surfing locale in Hilo, Huia is the modern answer to all-day support and wearability. P.S. sockless wear is always an option for hot and sunny summer days—the soft feel, bouncy midsole, and contoured footbeds will make sure your feet stay comfy.


The Most Comfortable Active Shoes for All-Day Wear



OluKai Kīlea Women’s Court Shoe


All the sneaker nostalgia you love. All the modern comfort you need. The Kīlea sneaker combines classic lace-up construction with the retro appeal of contrasting materials to bring you an everyday sneaker that feels a step above the rest. It’ll be your go-to, whether you’re going to the office or the local farmers’ market. Crafted with premium suede for lasting quality, a super-durable ripstop Drop-In Heel®, and perforated mesh for a breezier on-foot feel, you won’t find a better court sneaker. P.S. Kīlea is made with anatomical footbeds which means it will curve to your arches and support your every step—no break-in needed.


OluKai Hā‘upu Women’s Court Shoe


If you’re looking for a classic court sneaker with a twist, this one is for you. Hā‘upu is crafted with buttery soft full-grain leather that molds to every curve of your foot, and a quick hit of island sunshine striping the side. Beyond its premium feel and retro design, you can enjoy lasting comfort and a refreshing feel thanks to our contoured and machine-washable footbeds. The Hā‘upu is designed to perform outside too. The outsoles feature our non-marking Wet Grip Rubber for next-level traction and an extra-durable ripstop heel that resists the elements and folds in for shoe or slide wearability.
