12 Must-Have Sandals Made For Travel: 




For Nā Kāne (the Men)


‘Ilikai Men’s Sandals


Designed with a soft, curved line that mimics a calm ocean surface, Ilikai is the handsome, full-grain leather sandal you’re next vacation needs. Equal parts island character and modern depth, the resort-ready ‘Ilikai is etched with Hawaiian kapa-inspired chevron artwork and features supportive and secure construction.


Maha & Maha ‘Olu Men’s Sandals 


Hit the trails or get your morning workout in before sliding into these new styles. The Maha and Maha ‘Olu are designed to be your go-to recovery sandals. Those extra puffy straps and squishy foam footbeds will surround your feet in pure comfort after a day of getting after it. Slide them on for instant relief and relaxation. All you have to do is choose between our slide, Maha ‘Olu, and classic sandal, Maha.


Ulele Men’s Sandals


From dawn patrol to boat excursions to pau hana (happy hour) drinks in town, Ulele is here. This water-friendly style embodies everything you love about your favorite sneakers—lightweight, versatile, modern—but in the ease of a sandal. If there’s one sandal you need for your next tropical or coastal trip, it’s this one.




Kūkulu Men’s Sandals


Much like our crowd-favorite Ulele, but with a new modern look, Kūkulu takes a sneakerized approach to the classic beach sandal. Designed to be simple, yet undeniably supportive with water-resistant materials that flex with your step and a contrasted look that feels just as impressive on the sand as it does on the streets of your next destination.


Tuahine Men’s Sandals


One sandal that you can wear on the beach and out to dinner? Done. The Tuahine is your ideal all-day sandal. Crafted with waterproof, full-grain leather and stitching inspired by the winds of Hawaiʻi, this style is a breeze to wear no matter the occasion.



For Nā Wāhine (the Women)


Waiau Women’s Sandals


This simple, strappy sandal is inspired by the current patterns of the Pacific Ocean and is perfect for your next getaway. Wrapped in supple, full-grain leather, Waiau can dress up any outfit and feels more comfortable with every step.




Huawai Women’s Sandals


Like Waiau, this easy sandal is inspired by ocean currents. We crafted the rounded straps on Huawai with full-grain leather for step-in comfort and softness. They pair well with a casual day-trip outfit and can easily be elevated for drinks at the resort bar or in town.


Mi‘i Women’s Sandals


The Mi‘i mule has all the sleek style of a classic mule, but with boho woven leather inspired by Hawaiian lauhala. It’s easy to throw on and incredibly comfortable thanks to our contoured footbed and buttery soft leather.




Puawe Women’s Sandals


Some sandals are destined to become an everyday staple, and to us, that sandal is Puawe. Slim and delicate with all the classic comfort of OluKai, it has the kind of versatility that you need for daily island wear and beyond. Plus, the straps and cushy foam footbed are water-friendly in case your itinerary includes a beach or pool trip.


Kāmola Women’s Sandals


Premium leather with a woven lauhala design on the band, this beachy style blurs the line between relaxed and dressy. Kāmola sits atop an anatomically contoured midsole for lasting, cushioned support. Slide it on in the morning and cruise through your day in effortless comfort.


Hila Women‘s Sandals


Embrace the sunshine in this water-friendly style. Designed for tropical vacations, beach days, and a summer state of mind, Hila is a true warm-weather essential. Crafted with puffy rolled straps that hug your feet in comfort, it’s the perfect slide to throw on for a day of fun.
