  • Just got a pair of the Kia’i II. I don’t wear slippers, however I left my suitcase of stuff at home with my cheap sandals that i wear around the house. When I got here to Kuilima I needed something. I decided to spend money and got a pair. The moment I put them on I thought I was walking in the clouds….and they look great.

  • I never liked flip flops, but in Hawaii,
    they kind are a necessity, bought these
    at the hotel, and WOW, so comfortable!
    I’m hooked, support & comfort & good
    looks, these are great and worth the

  • I got these at a store in Singapore many years ago. They are still in good shape. Maybe it is because of my light 145 lbs frame. Of course these is now wear and tear even on the sole since it is something like rubber texture on the insole. I like to walk on the beach in them. I need to flip them over and stretch the straps in and out to allow the fine sands to drop out. This does happen often.

    Nevertheless a great pair. I hope to get a new one soon.

  • My first pair of Olukai’s (Rabbitt Kekai edition) were awesome. They lasted well over three years. My next pair (Kia’i) lasted a year. My leather pair( Kakahi) just broke at the toe strap after two years. My last pair purchased(Kia’i 11) lasted two weeks before the sole started to separate from the footbed. The replacement pair Olukai sent lasted one month before the sole separated and the main strap tore away from the footbed. Unfortunately the quality has declined significantly over the years, definitely not justifying the price.

    • Aloha Peter,
      Your sandals should be long lasting. We are sorry to hear of the trouble with your pairs and we will contact you directly to see if we can assist you.

  • Awesome treads for around the water but the base started separating after one year that saw only three weeks of wear. Not very good. Looks for ones that don’t have a two part base maybe they will last longer.

  • What can i say? Awesome flops. Worth their weight in gold. Thanks OluKai.

  • I have had the original KIA’I in gray. Absolutely love them. I have owned most of the major brands of sandals thru my life and I have to admit.,I am OCD with OLUKAI brand of everything. Within the first week of owning, I went back to retail store and purchased the KIA’I trainers. They have replaced a good portion of all my running and cross training shoes. I have the wonderful process of beginning to look for a new pair of OLUKAI sandals. Needless to say the new/old pair I currently own still,rock and are a go to always. Just looking to add to the collection. Thank you OLUKAI for being there.

  • (KIA’I II).
    These ARE awesome slippas! I bought my first pair while long lining for “Big Eye Tuna” in Oahu. They lasted for over two years! I wore them almost every day for that two year period. I just got my second pair today, and I must say I am a little disappointed with the changes. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it right? The HLA and Hawaiian island chain insignia used to be embroidered as did the red and yellow accents along the straps. Now only the makau is embroidered? It’s not like I paid any less for this pair of slippers than the last pair! The footbed is different as well. I will wear these and use them just as hard as I did my last pair and see if they hold up as long. Hopefully OluKai hasn’t skimped where it counts. I absolutely Loved my last pair and hope I will enjoy these just as much. We shall see.

  • These are awesome flip flops. I bought mine while on vacation in Waikiki from Australia. I have problems with my arches. These are so comfortable! Definitely my favorite footwear. I will be back for more. highly recommended.

  • Buy these. I am retired in VA and have tried almost all flops. These are my go to pair. And I wear them all year long. I prefer them over the ‘Ohana Leather.
