Presented in partnership with OluKai…
I don’t know about you, but nearly every single day I struggle with what pair of shoes I’m going to pair with my outfit. It’s not that I don’t have options, it’s just, well, as the summer switches to fall, I tend to find that sneakers don’t really go with pants all the time. After all, who wants to look like a soccer dad heading into the office, right?
Thankfully, I came across the latest designs from Olukai Shoes — the Huaka‘i Lī and Huaka‘i Puki — which look great, have incredible craftsmanship, and are the perfect shoe+boot to keep your style alive and well during the fall, winter and early spring seasons.
And while Olukai Shoes are best-known for capturing the spirit and culture of the beaches of Hawai’i, the Huaka‘i Lī and Huaka‘i Puki are a little different twist on those inspirations.
That’s because both the shoe and boot were designed to withstand any adventure on your list, made for the man with urban hikes in his future, while rugged enough to conquer anything nature has to throw at him. Legit, these are modern sneakers designed for today’s urban voyagers.
Thanks to two kinds of leather — a blend of smooth waxed nubuck and rough-out full grain — the Huaka‘i Lī and Huaka‘i Puki bring a rugged look fit for nature, yet refined enough for city life. Add in the lightweight, anatomical footbed that’s lined with soft and supple full-grain leather, as well as ‘Wet Grip Rubber’ outsole for superior traction, and it’s easy to see why Olukai Shoes are making it easy for guys like me to decide on what shoes to wear each morning.
Huaka‘i Lī – $160
Huaka‘i Puki – $180
Like all OluKai Shoes, the OluKai’s Huaka‘i Lī and Huaka‘i Puki are both 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. So your shoes have just a little bit more meaning each time you wear them.
