The OluKai Miki Trainer's traction

The bottom of the OluKai Miki Trainer is lined with the Wet Grip Rubber outsole. The rubber features siping that enhances its traction on smooth, wet surfaces.

Meanwhile, the triangular treads help with grip on uneven trails. This compound is non-marking, so it won’t leave marks on boat decks and polished floors.

Flexible and shock-absorbent cushioning

The primary cushioning unit of the OluKai Miki Trainer is made from compression-molded EVA foam. It is the white layer on top of the outsole. It is soft, allowing it to bend with the foot and absorb shock.

A cozy bed for the foot

Inside this trainer is a PU footbed. This layer is a lightweight, single-density foam that delivers a comfortable bed for the foot to rest on. It provides ample arch support and is covered in a mesh fabric that aids in moisture and temperature control.

The insole is removable and washable. You can swap it with your choice of custom orthotics to achieve the comfort that you desire.

Versatile look

Like most other OluKais, this model also features the brand’s patented Drop-In Heel. The back panel is constructed in a way that it easily folds down, turning the trainer into a slider.

The interior is lined with heather jersey, a soft fabric that also allows air to pass through. Together with the no-sew upper construction, they prevent chafing and blistering from happening.

Meanwhile, high-wear areas like the toe box are reinforced with synthetic overlays. These elements prevent the underlying fabric from early deterioration.
