As the weather starts to turn, staying warm and comfortable in the cold all starts with the right pair of winter footwear. From fashionable winter boots to insulated and waterproof winter shoes, OluKai has durable winter footwear for whatever excursions you have planned.
What makes our winter wear stand out? From slippers with outdoor friendly soles to full-grain leather from Gold-Level Tanneries, our slippers, boots, and shoes are created to stand the test of time and keep you warm, cozy, and comfy.
See our suggestions below for warm winter shoes for extreme cold, the materials we love most to stay dry and warm, and how to care for winter shoes to make them last longer.
Our ready-for-anything boots are made with genuine shearling lining and waterproof nubuck leather to comfortably take you out of your comfort zone. Plus, the sturdy build gives even the most spontaneous days a sense of control. We love styles like Papakū ‘Ili and Mōlina for the guys, and Hawai‘iloa Manu Hope and Mālua Hulu for the gals. Step through your day in next-level style and comfort all season long.
Snow Ready Shoes
Cruise through the climates in our comfy, waterproof sneaker and shoe styles that are sure to never let a puddle or passing snowstorm get in the way of an adventure. We love the enhanced grip sole and non-marking Wet Grip Rubber for sure-footed exploration and unmatched traction. Check out sneaker styles like Kōheo Hulu or Kīlea Lānui for deep winter colors, or Pehuea Lī ‘Ili or Lae‘ahi Lī ‘Ili to add a sophisticated, formal winter shoe to your wardrobe.
Soled Slippers? Say Less.
All of our slippers are crafted with premium materials and leather that wrap your feet in comfort. Genuine shearling for softness. Wool for warmth. Cotton for breathability. Full-grain leather for durability and style. Not to mention, all these materials are great for temperature regulation — meaning you can wear your house (or out-of-house) slippers year-round.
Our slippers and house shoes also have design benefits that set them apart from the competition. For one, you won’t have to worry about crushing the heel when you throw them on in a hurry and our durable rubber sole is great for quick trips to the mailbox or the dog park. Moloā Slipper, Hanohano, Hila Heu, and Ku‘i are some of our favorite styles for this season.
Caring For Your Winter Shoes
Remove excess dirt or debris from your winter shoes with a gentle bristle brush or towel. Then hand wash using a gentle bristle brush and a cold water, mild detergent solution. Brush gently in a circular motion; if needed, go over stains multiple times to remove. For salt stains, treat the affected area with a simple solution of equal parts water and white vinegar and a cloth.
If odor is a problem, try swabbing a few drops of tea tree oil along the soles of your shoes overnight. The oils’ antibacterial properties will eliminate odors and keep your feet feeling fresh and odors at bay.
