What makes an OluKai sandal truly built to last? We like to think it’s a few things: tradition, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. The Hiapo is constructed with naturally tumbled or marbled full-grain leather using hand-sewn traditional whipstitching, complete with Polynesian tattoo artwork details on the footbed. One of our original sandals (hence, its namesake), Hiapo only gets better with age. Made for the beach, not the ocean—prolonged contact with water may cause damage.
Upper: Full-grain leather with naturally tumbled, marbled, or distressed surface texture features a comfortable hand-sewn leather toe post and soft microfiber lining.
Footbed: Laser-etched Moko tattoo artwork covers a compression-molded EVA midsole wrapped in full-grain leather for an anatomically personalized fit and sustained comfort over time.
Outsole: Full-grain leather wrapped outsole with non-marking rubber traction pods for enhanced grip and flexibility.
