Hikianalia is the companion sailing canoe of the iconic Hōkūle‘a and summons the wayfaring wisdom passed down by its Hawaiian ancestors to navigate the sea.
The Polynesian culture is an oral history, passed along through storytelling. Naming our products with Hawaiian words is our small way of spreading and preserving the culture for future generations.

Our sandals only come in full sizes. Fit can be a bit difficult to determine, as it is usually your personal preference. If you are usually a half size there are a couple of aspects to consider when deciding to size up or down. If you prefer extra room in your sandals, we suggest going up a half size. If you prefer a more snug fit, it is recommended to order down if you are a half size. Please keep in mind if your feet are narrow or wide, this may affect the fit of our footwear.
If your sandals or shoes are covered under warranty, please return to the location at which you purchased them. The retailer should be able to replace the damaged footwear. Please remember to bring your receipt. If the sandals or shoes were purchased on vacation or in a different location then where you live, and they are covered under warranty, please email us at [email protected] along with an explanation and photo of the damage or defect.

OluKai leather sandals and shoes are water-resistant, not waterproof.
It’s a combination of premium materials and contoured shapes that form the structure of OluKai. At the core of all our footwear is our anatomical footbed; a biomechanically engineered shape that supports and positions your entire foot naturally, allowing it to move through the stride comfortably and correctly. Our deep heel contour centers, aligns, and supports the foot.
We use natural latex in our gum rubbers, 30% recycled material in all our outsoles, and 100% recycled material in our packaging. We source all of our leathers exclusively from environmentally conscious ISO-14001 certified tanneries. We are exploring water-based glues, however at this time the sub-par bond durability outweighs the benefits. We will make the switch once the bonding strength improves. We consider making high-quality, long-lasting footwear as one way to reduce our environmental footprint.
All of our footwear is designed and developed in the US and manufactured in Asia and Mexico.
Yes! We have two basic types of product at OluKai, Mauka (towards the land) and Makai (towards the sea). Our Makai products are made to be water friendly and are made from all synthetic material, no animal products. Our Mauka products are generally Closed Toe and are predominately made with leather, however we do have Mauka closed toe styles that use canvas or twill that are 100% synthetic. Material details can be found on the product details tab under each product. Styles will be marked as Vegan on the website in the product description, but a place to start is our ‘Ohana sandals (synthetic) or our ‘Ohana Lace up if you want a closed toe model, both are 100% Vegan. Note that “synthetic leather” is 100% synthetic.
