The compound is durable. It is also non-marking, so even if it’s black, it won’t be leaving streak marks on polished floors. The outsole uses Hawaiian prints for its tread pattern.

The OluKai Kulana's upper

Full-grain leather is used for the top of the OluKai Kilana. The suppleness of the material adds to the overall flexibility of the shoes. It has decorative stitchings that amplify the style.

Quick wear action

The Kilana features a slip-on silhouette. However, unlike other slip-on OluKais, it doesn’t have gore panels. The difference is that the instep portion is not fully connected to the quarters, allowing it to move when the foot slides in or out.
