What Makes OluKai Boots The Best Boot Option

Boot season, we’re ready for you. And by ready, we mean we have the most versatile, most stylish, and most functional boot options. So how are OluKai boots made, and what makes them the best boots you’ll find this season? Let’s dig in.




From a day hiking to a dinner date in the heart of the city, our boots do it all. Thanks to water-resistant materials, super comfy insoles, and style that fits in anywhere, you can go from outdoor explorations to dress-up-and-dine without changing your footwear.




Is it possible that something so stylish can be weather-proofed too? If it’s OluKai, it is. We know the best things in life happen outdoors in nature, which is why we’ve made our boots with water-resistant canvas (like you’ll find in the Nānā Hele Wai’apo), waterproof leathers (Hawai‘iloa Manu Hope and Mālua Hulu), and DWR (durable water-resistant coating – we’re looking at you Lipoa).






Cozy feet are more likely to go the distance when it comes to an adventurous lifestyle, which is why we make sure all of our boots keep your feet warm. From the Lipoa, which features a soft and comfy fleece, to the Mālua Hulu, which comes with a 100% genuine shearling lining, our boots are designed to keep your feet toasty. Our women’s Hawai‘iloa Manu Hope, on the other hand, is lined with a wool blend textile for the ultimate in temperature regulation (because while warmth is important, so is breathability).




Ever wondered how OluKai boots are made? When it comes to construction, we’re all in. And by that, we mean we think of every little detail to create the perfect, most durable boots you’ll ever meet. From the removable and washable gel insoles, to the premium materials, anatomical footbeds, and the Wet Sand Principle we feature in all our footwear, OluKai boots are just made better. In addition, we use leather from Gold certified Leather Working Group (LWG) tanneries, which delivers peak quality with a low environmental impact.




Island adventures might take you from the forest to the coast, and multiple terrains all in one day. We make sure all our boots fit perfectly to your feet, because we want them to be the last thing on your mind. While some boots like the Lipoa might fit fairly snugly at first, they are designed to stretch and mold to your foot. Others, such as the Mālua Hulu, have elastic gore panels for easy-on fit. Every pair of boots is made from premium materials that are carefully selected to be beautiful, durable, and soft against your skin. What’s more, the Wet Sand Principle we mention above means they’re literally designed to form to your feet. That means they’re slightly wider around your toes with contoured arch support and a cupped heel – all inspired by the way a bare foot sinks slowly into wet sand.
