Who should NOT buy OluKai Moloa

No matter how desirable the OluKai Moloa is, this walking shoe is not for you if you don’t want a shoe with a bit of high sides, which can hit the ankle bones. You can choose the OluKai Nalukai Slip On instead.

If you also have severe overpronation, you should avoid getting this model and opt to get a shoe from our collection of motion control walking shoes like the dressy New Balance 1200.

Enjoy the slip-on/slider design of the Moloa

Slip-on or sliders? With the Moloa, you don’t have to choose one over the other because you can have both. 

This trainer features OluKai’s patented Drop-In Heel construction. The heel panel can be easily folded down because of how it is attached to the quarters, and it won’t feel uncomfortable to the wearer.

When the heel is not collapsed, wearing the shoes is still manageable. The elastic gore panels that connect the vamp to the quarters provide users with a customized fit and promote quick on-and-off action.

A slip-proof walking shoes from OluKai

The OluKai Moloa features an outsole suited for both the island and city life. It employs a combination of full-grain leather and rubber to grip various types of surfaces.

The all-weather rubber allows you to traverse concrete pavements, grass, or even sand without any issues. It is also non-marking, so you won’t have to worry about leaving ugly streaks on your office floor.

Smooth movement

The outsole sports a segmented style. The rubber pods are separated by the leather. This construction aids in maintaining the flexibility of the layer for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.
