By Dan | 2017-07-05Footwear is something that most of us tend not to skimp on for one reason or another. For me, I know that they will last and keep on giving even years after. I lived in SE Asia for months and wore nothing but my last pair of top quality sandals and I could still wear them despite monsoon rains and tons of trekking. But like all things they break down, this pair the replacement to the last ones after 5 years of hard use and I can safely say that I love them already and look forward to many miles of comfort and style for years to come.
Better than birks
By Chap | 2017-06-19First time away from birks for 20 years. These are well made and extremely comfortable. I went one size up and could have gone two sizes up and they would still have worked . Also got a pair of shoes but they were my normal size. So best to try a few on before you buy if possible.
Break in period was 3 to 4 hours for the leather and zero time for the thong piece.
A+ for quality and A+ for comfort. Too early to tell if they hold up wear and tear wise.
Ola kai Nui very comfortable but run very small
By Hope it helps | 2016-08-28I bought these sandals a few weeks ago and I love them! They have molded to my feet like warm butter. However, they seem to run very small. I believe it is a design issue because there is at least one inch between my big toe and the tip of the sandal. However, there is only one eighth inch Off of my heel. It's appears to be to hold and strap is positioned too far back on the sandal. This could be a design issue or a quality control issue as these sandals are made in China. Overall, I love the sandals and would recommend them to anyone!
Fits quite small
By joel | 2016-07-29Heads up, this is a very fitted flop and was between 0.5-1 inch smaller than another pair of OluKai's I love. I returned these for a different style as the color was also off and the foot bed stitched logo was rubbing on my heel enough to notice and mildly annoy. Just a heads up...still love the brand.
By Rey gomez | 2016-07-21Wow! These are the best. Comfortable, great arch support, great heel support, and molded to my foot from the first time I put them on. Like I said, "wow"! I have purchased other "top price" sandals in the past 3 years. I finally found "my sandals". I once bought a pair orthopaedic sandals in a sporting good store and they hugged my foot in a similar way, but not like this pair of sandals. Plain and simple. These are comfortable, look clean, and, I kid you not, as soon as I purchased them I slipped them on. By the time I walked back to my car, which was parked far from the store, my foot pain was much better, practically almost gone. I'm very glad I found OluKai.
OluKai sandals: You can't go wrong
By David | 2016-06-27I have owned three pair of OluKai 's total: Mea Ola, Nui, and Hokua. I need to preface this review with some background first. I started with my first pair of thong type sandals roughly ten years ago. I have always felt that shoes exposing the toes were kind of limiting. This viewpoint changed after wearing flip flops and appreciating the free feeling for my feet!
Now onto the OluKai brand review: They are the very best, by far, of any type of sandals with the thong design I have ever tried. The only issue I've experienced even remotely close to a complaint, is the Mea Ola design had a stiff, leather toe post. This, for me, was uncomfortable. However, the Nui and Hokua design offers a soft nylon solution that is butter soft and comfortable. The Hokua's are waterproof to boot! These leather Nui's are molding to the foot and comfortable beyond belief. The arch support and over all high quality design is so far from competing brands that I feel OluKai is truly in a class alone from the pack. They're on the very top.
So if you want the Ferrari of flip flops, get a pair of OluKai's, you won't be sorry! I bought three different pair in the course of a month.
Happy feet in Georgia!
By Nicholas | 2016-05-14I got these to replace another sandal that I had purchased with OluKai after they had worn out after just one season. I got these thinking that since they are leather, they would last longer. After having worn them about a year now, I can say that I have traded some comfort for better durability. These sandals, because they are leather, give me 'hot spots' on my feet due to rubbing if I wear them for a few hours at a time or walk a good distance in them. They are comfortable, but it's just a trade off.
