Few things in your closet will get more wear than a versatile pair of shoes. While there are countless options available, island-inspired Olukai has upped the ante with The Nalukai Collection by building them all on a sneaker platform.
The five shoes all have a lightweight feel thanks to their compression-molded EVA midsoles, which add plenty of comfort as well. Each shoe brings the wearer a lot more than meets the eye — from the premium leather upper of the Nalukai Boot, to the smart use of waxed cotton canvas for the Nalukai Kapa Boot to the more casual Nalukai Lace Up sneaker with OluKai’s signature Drop-in Heel — because OluKai focuses on creating shoes that act like sneakers but look like so much more.
