Anti-slippage grip

The bottom of the OluKai Eleu Trainer uses sticky rubber. This layer allows it to deliver maximum grip even on wet conditions.

Meanwhile, the lugs on the outsole prevent slippage on trails. They also help with forefoot flexibility and dexterity of the toes while traversing tricky mountain trails.

Shock-absorbent midsole

Atop the outsole of the Eleu Trainer is a layer of compression-molded EVA foam. This type of foam aids in dulling the impact of each step.

Generous footbed cushioning

Inside the footgear is a dual-density EVA footbed. It is shaped to follow the shape of the underfoot to provide maximum support and coverage.

Because this pair of OluKai walking shoes are engineered to handle wet environments, the insert is hydrophobic, which means it repels water. Perforations are also abundant on the foam insole to help drain water and keep the weight of the trainer at a minimum.

The footbed is also removable, so you have the option to use your custom orthotics if you need them. This layer is also washable, allowing you to maintain good foot hygiene.

This footwear employs a gusseted tongue. By attaching the sides of the tongue to the quarters of the shoes, it ensures that debris will not get inside the shoe to cause discomfort.
