Olukai Shoes’ Hāmākua Chukka Boots Blend Island Culture With Big City Vibes

Presented in partnership with OluKai

While looking in my closet the other day as I prepared to step outside into a gray, lightly drizzling morning, I realized something: I didn’t have a pair of solid Chukka boots that could withstand such elements. Sure, I have some sneakers that I’ve been wearing for the past few months, but now that it’s fall, my wardrobe’s lacking that perfect complement to jeans and slacks.

This might be a dilemma many guys run into, as it’s always difficult finding a great pair of boots that can be worn all fall, winter and early spring.

But with Olukai Shoes‘ Hāmākua Chukkas, that big problem will disappear, because these are the boots designed for moments like I experienced the other day.


Born from the bold landscape of the Big Island in Hawai’i, Olukai Shoes‘ Hāmākua Chukkas have a wide-ankle opening and roomy toe box, with the handsewn moccasin stitching providing extra stability for every foot movement. So go ahead and get cozy while walking around town in these.

Plus, with a soft, moisture-wicking microfiber lining and heavily waxed, smooth and tumbled nubuck leather, the Hāmākua won’t make your feet overheat, allowing them to breathe nicely. Add in the all-weather non-marking rubber outsole that’s wrapped with premium fullgrain leather and traction pods for flexibility and traction, and you’ve got the daily boot you’ve been looking for for the next few months.


Available in two colors — Dark Wood / Toffee and Storm Grey / Dark Wood — the Hāmākua Chukka Boot is neutral enough to pair with every color pant you toss on. That’s important, and it takes the headache out of digging deep into your closet to find the right pair each morning.

Like all OluKai Shoes, the Hāmākua are inspired from the culture of Hawai’i, which is why a portion of all the proceeds directly supports the Ama OluKai Foundation, honoring those who preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawai‘i. That means they’re manufactured with passion, which isn’t something other pairs of boots in your closet can often claim.
