The Best Gifts To Get Your Dad For Father's Day

We’re going to cut straight to the chase: Dad needs new shoes. Or maybe sandals and slippers are more his thing, but trust us when we say you can’t go wrong this Father’s Day with a fresh pair of OluKai for the special dad in your life. And if you’re wondering what the best gifts for dad are this year, we’ve made it easy for you. Read on to discover our recommendations for the bestselling father’s day gifts or shop the full father’s day gift guide.

 

Exclusive Father’s Day Gifts

 

You had him at “exclusive.” But seriously, these styles were made with Father’s Day in mind, and we think he’s going to love them. The Panepo‘o in Blue Depth is a sophisticated take on a sneaker, engineered from the most high-end leather out there—Italian. He can wear it from the boardroom to backyard BBQs without missing a beat. More of a water guy? He can’t go wrong with either the ‘Awiki or the Kōko‘o sandals – both repel water and shake dry in seconds. You might have to throw an ocean adventure in with the gift too!

 

 

Best Selling Father’s Day Gifts

 

When it comes to gifts for dad, look no further than these bestselling father’s day gifts. After all, best sellers are best sellers for a reason. Take the ‘Ohana Pa‘i… This reliable beach sandal takes the smooth, contoured design you know and love and kicks it up a notch with original Wai Camo artwork. Another fan fave is the Hiapo, a traditional, well-crafted leather sandal that he can wear from workdays to weddings, it’s that stylish. And if your dad is the kind who likes the ease of a slip on sneaker for beach days (and all days), we recommend the well-loved Lae‘ahi Pa‘i.

 

 

Gifts For The Waterman

 

We know there are plenty of watermen out there amongst our OluKai dads, so let’s look at the best gifts for the waterman. We’re going to go out on a limb and assume he doesn’t yet have the ‘Ohana in every colorway… yet. If that’s the case, then our original water-resistant sandal is a great gift. Another great option for dads who are in and out of the water is the Ulele. This water-friendly sandal floats too. And for an upscale leather sandal that’s also waterproof (yep, you read that right), pick the Tuahine.

 

 

Gifts For the Outdoorsman

 

If your dad is the outdoorsy type, we’ve got his back. Well, we’ve actually got his feet, but you get it. Our team picked out the best gifts for the outdoorsman and two styles topped the list. Whether you’re shopping for the guy who spends his time trail running, hiking, or just exploring the great outdoors, then the Mio Lī is a winner. This shoe is lightweight, breathable, and made to move in. Its more rugged cousin – the Nihoa Lī – is another great Father’s Day gift, with a tough shell and cushioned fit that will keep his feet protected as he explores everything the trail have to offer.

 

 

Gifts For the Traveler

 

Ah, travel. It’s back, and so is the need for the ultimate travel shoes so we put together our favorite gifts for the traveler in your life. Let’s start with Lae‘ahi – a slip-on shoe that has a “No socks, no problem” kind of attitude. Perfect for flying, biking, beach, and everything in between. And for the traveler who subscribes to a “Sun’s out, toes out” mentality, go for the ‘Ilikai, a full-grain leather sandal that delivers a supportive, secure construction. On the other end of the scale is the Nalukai Kapa Boot, which pairs water-resistant waxed canvas with a moisture-wicking microfiber lining to crush any adventure with comfort and versatility.

 

 

Gifts For the Golfer

 

Gifts for the golfer? Oh yeah, we have that too now. Because why not bring the comfort of OluKai footwear to the golf course! Check out the Kapalua – a golf shoe that’s crafted with water and stain-resistant materials and a new cushioned midsole for all-day comfort as well. Don’t miss out on our waterproof leather Wai‘alae. It’s a sophisticated sneaker style that’s ready for both the tee box and post-round pau hana (happy hour) at the clubhouse.
