Good to know
Who is it for? The OluKai Nohea Slipper is meant for ladies who absolutely hate walking barefoot on cold floors, especially during the winter. It is also directed at women who love feeling pretty even when they’re just chilling in the house or going for a quick walk.
It is designed to provide warmth and comfort to the wearer, whether the back panel is collapsed or not. You’ll look good even if your wearing pajamas, robes, or your favorite pair of leggings and a cute top.
What is it for? This pair of OluKai walking shoes is suitable for indoor use. As indicated in the name, it is a slipper but not just for the bedroom. However, it can also be used for quick walks outside your house or even around the block.
Traction. The underside of the OluKai Nohea Slipper is equipped with a gum rubber outsole. The compound features a buffed finish that not only delivers some rustic vibes but also enhances the grip. It is also non-marking, so no need to worry about scuffing your wood or tiled floors.
Cushioning. Inside the Nohea Slipper is a removable polyurethane (PU) footbed. It uses dual-density foam, allowing it to be flexible at the forefoot and be denser at the heel for steadiness. It also has a gel insert in the arch area that renders more structure and support.
The insole is shaped to follow the natural contours of the underfoot for maximum comfort. The top is covered with soft wool blend fabric, which adds to the cozy feel. If the insert starts to get dirty, or smelly, you can simply throw it in the wash to clean them.
Coverage. A soft nubuck leather makes up the top of the OluKai Nohea Slipper. This material repels water, but unlike waxed nubuck, water stains can be visible. You need to air-dry it to return it to its original condition.
Design. Hand-sewn whipstitching is used on the toe and rearfoot sections. They amplify the style and strengthen the seams. There is also embroidery on the upper, adding to the aesthetics of the shoe.
Comfort. The interlining of this OluKai walking shoe uses genuine sheepskin shearling. The wool inside the footwear helps with insulation, keeping the feet warm during cold weather.
Construction. The Nohea Slipper employs a slip-on silhouette. The gore panels on either side of the vamp allow for smooth on-and-off action while also securing the foot when they return to their standard length.
This model also features the Drop-In Heel. This patented design allows owners to transform the look of the product into a slider. The way the back panel connects to the quarters enable it to drop to the footbed and be lifted up without damaging it.
