The bottom of the OluKai Manoa uses rubber pods to deliver grip on different types of surfaces. They also feature island-inspired tread patterns, which adds style and enhances traction.
Platform against impact
The primary cushioning unit of the Manoa is engineered from compression-molded EVA foam. It reduces the impact felt by the wearer.
Sitting atop the midsole is a triple-layer EVA insole. It mimics the underfoot shape to provide full coverage and support. It is covered with a soft microfiber that has moisture-wicking property. The footbed of this travel walking shoe is removable, allowing the use of custom orthotics. It can also be washed to prevent it from getting dirty or developing a foul odor.
The OluKai Manoa's upper
The OluKai Manoa employs a cotton canvas top. The inside is also lined with soft canvas. The use of supple fabrics ensures prolonged walking comfort.
This OluKai walking shoe has several accents that amplify its look. It has stitchings on the front that resemble boat shoes. Leather trimmings are also used in several places. They add a rustic vibe to the footgear. They also have the brand logo and name stamped on them.
A traditional lacing system secured the foot inside the trainer.
However, if you need to be able to put it on in a jiff, this model sports the brand’s patented Drop-In Heel. Simply fold the back panel to change it into a slider.
