OluKai ‘Awe’Awe – Dark Java/Dark Java
OluKai ‘Awe’Awe – Women’s Leather Sandals
Moved by Hawai‘i’s vibrant tradition of master craftsmanship, we designed the ‘Awe‘awe sandal with full-grain leather straps, inspired by traditional Hawaiian basket weaving. Comfortable as well as refined, our ‘Awe‘awe is perfect for island life. With ocean current-inspired traction pods, an antiqued metal buckle for a customized fit, and also a lower profile, the ‘Awe‘awe boasts a modern look and feel. ‘Awe’awe (ah-veh-ah-veh) means “Straps for a Bundle” in the Hawaiian language. Not to mention, a portion of all proceeds directly supports the Ama OluKai Foundation, honoring those who preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawai‘i. Every pair gives back.
- Embossed upper logo, laser-etched footbed logo and antiqued metal buckle
- Unlined, high-character full-grain leather straps
- Anatomical poured PU footbed with micro-texture for traction
- Non-marking rubber outsole
OluKai ‘Awe’Awe Story
OluKai believes that everybody, no matter where they are, can live Aloha. It started as a different approach to a footwear company. We wanted to create footwear that is durable for the waterman and ocean lifestyle. We also wanted to create a brand that has strong values and roots with style, comfort, and craftsmanship. At OluKai, we believe that sustainability and positive living is less about an ethos and more about the choices that you make everyday. It’s about your actions, and inspiring the actions of others. Our Aloha, our breath of life is about the action of giving without any expectation of receiving. Years before OluKai was profitable, we were giving back because that is part of our core values. Finally, we produce products we believe in. Even more, we believe in quality of product and material, craftsmanship in construction, and also finding quality in life.
