OluKai Hiapo – Black/Black
OluKai Hiapo – Men’s Leather Sandals
Dignified and respected the Hiapo, our first born, is a true pioneer of tradition craft and also detail. Hiapo (hee-ah-po) means “First Born” in the Hawaiian language. This sandal features Moko tattoo artwork and footbed detail, hand-sewn whipstitching with heavyweight thread, an embroidered logo, and a comfortable hand-sewn leather toe post. Hiapo has full-grain leather with naturally tumbled, marbled, or distressed surface textures as well as a soft microfiber lining. 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.

OluKai Hiapo 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.
