Ocean, Comfort



When you slide into OluKai footwear, you get rooted into the real Hawaii.

The Island Pursuits Shop and Pro Shop at Kukuiula stock an irresistible line of footwear called OluKai (Olu means comfort and Kai ocean) that feel good on every possible level. Maui-based and heart-and-soul devoted to the local way of life, the company reaches deep into communities on island and on the mainland, celebrating o‘hana and giving back with a rare fervor that combines the elite, the traditional and the family. OluKai hosts events as varied as the Maliko Downwind Run, free standup paddle lessons and beach cleanups in California, and the company provides all 420+ lifeguards of the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association with Kia‘i slippers (sandals) as part of their uniform.

Kukuiula Marketing and Merchandising Manager Veronica Lovesy has been a longtime fan of OluKai. “I like the attention to detail and care taken to creating a pair of shoes that truly supports your arches, while at the same time providing a beautiful Hawaiian-inspired look that our members love to wear on-island as well as on the mainland.”

Recently, OluKai started a “talk story” section on the company website that documents the odysseys of a master canoe builder, legendary waterman and Olympic athlete. Take a look talkstory.olukai.com/talk-story-original-series/ It’s an instant link from the islands to your heart…and your toes.

After your feet island-ready, look at all of the amazing things you can do when you stay at in one of Hawaii luxury homes.
