Crafted from Sitka spruce trees gifted to Hawaiians from Alaska in 1990, the Hawai‘iloa voyaging canoe is a legendary double-hulled vessel made to pay tribute to the first discoverer of Hawai’i. Now, the folks at Olukai have made their own tribute to that magnificent watercraft in the form of their stylish and versatile Hawaiʻiloa Manu Ihu chukka boots.

Handsome enough to be worn out on a night on the town but rugged enough to handle long treks, even in inclement weather, these boots boast a waterproof Nubuck leather upper boasting both laser-etched and hand-stitched details. That upper hides a comfy, removable, and washable single-density poured PU anatomical footbed with a microfiber cover. And the whole thing is rounded off with a lightweight compression-molded EVA midsole complete with a “Wet Grip Rubber” outsole traction — inspired by Hawai‘iloa wood carving. Available in brown or black these stylish boots can be yours for $150 a pair.

Purchase: $150
