OluKai Mea Ola Tan/Dark Java
OluKai Mea Ola Tan/Dark Java – Men’s Leather Flip Flop
Long before Western sailors dipped a finger in that ocean, Polynesians had explored the entire Pacific on great voyaging canoes built in traditional yet sophisticated techniques. A nod to native exploration and craftsmanship, the rich, premium full-grain leather Mea Ola features canoe lash whipstitching and octopus-inspired laser-etched artwork—a super comfortable sandal with design inspired by age-old tradition. OluKai Mea Ola (meh-ah oh-lah) means “Creature” 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.
- Comfortable hand-sewn leather toe post and embroidered logo
- Premium full-grain leather straps with soft microfiber lining
- Compression molded EVA midsole provides anatomically correct contour for a personalized fit and sustained comfort over time
- Full-grain leather wrapped outsole with non-marking rubber traction pods for enhanced grip and flexibility
OluKai Mea Ola 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.
