Modern, sophisticated and soulful. Every stitch tells a story.

Craftsmanship Starts with Quality Materials

Craftsmanship Starts with Quality Materials

Our approach to the sandals we build starts with material. We carefully select full-grain and nubuck leathers for their warm tones, rich textures, and smooth finishes, not to mention their durability and breathability. We marry these premium leathers with high-quality materials to curate a look that’s both sophisticated and relaxed. Heavyweight hand-sewn stitching and laser-etched artwork inspired by the cultural heritage of the Hawaiian Islands offer handcrafted, refined detail.

Celebrating the Journey

These sandals, beautiful in their design and detail, serve to raise awareness of the importance of voyaging canoes within the Polynesian culture.

Etched detail depicting the proud voyaging canoes, the full-grain leather Hōkūle‘a Kia and Hikianalia sandals honor the Mālama Honua mission that began with the World Wide Voyage.

Crafted with premium, naturally tumbled or marbled leathers, every stitch in the Hiapo tells an authentic story. Using hand-sewn whipstitching inspired by Hawaiian canoe builders and traditional moko tattoo artwork on the footbed, the Hiapo holds fast to storied details.
