(koo-ah-ah-ee-nah) TRANSLATION: Rustic, Country
Inspired by the asymmetrical grid of Hawaiian kalo loi fields, Olukai mimicked the pattern on the Kua‘aina outsole for a new level of traction. When Hawaii’s geography throws challenging terrain your way, from mud to lava rock to loose scree, the Kua‘aina remains sure-footed and comfortable when a casual adventure turns a little more unstable.
- Heavyweight upper stitching, hand-sewn decorative canoe lashing and embossed logo detail.
- UPPER: Premium and textured full-grain leather with fine knap suede edge accents, quick-drying jersey knit lining and a soft, comfortable nylon toe post.
- FOOTBED: Anatomical, compression molded EVA footbed textured for additional grip and traction.
- OUTSOLE: Non-marking, ‘Wet Grip Rubber’ with a versatile lug pattern for traction on and off the beaten path.
