Who should NOT buy OluKai Moku Pae

You should consider getting the OluKai Lae Ahi, which is designed with a lightly padded collar for a more comfortable feel on the ankle. The OluKai Nohea Moku is another excellent alternative since it has a less sharp collar design than the Moku Pae.

The Moku Pae has a slip-on option

Its collapsible heel design offers an alternative to using this shoe as a slip-on. This option makes for easy on and off.

This Drop-In Heel design allows the heel to be folded down for slip-on convenience. However, several testers gripe about how the heel collar digs into their ankles when it is not folded down.
