The Hawai'iloa Kia Hope is a carefully crafted sandal designed to celebrate the legendary Hawai'iloa voyaging canoe. Using traditional stitching and laser-etched details on the footbed that recount the canoe's journey, the Hawai'iloa Kia Hope is an ode to the story of a canoe that crossed a sea of cultures.
The flip flop's upper is a rich and premium full-grain leather with a nautical inspired leather toe post and elegant full-grain leather lining. The footbed is made of anatomical molded EVA with a premium full-grain leather footbed cover and plush foam underlay for all day comfort. Finally, the outsole is made of non-marking rubber with forefoot traction pods. Additional features include strap hand-sewn whipstitching as well as laster details that symbolize the 200-foot tall Sitka spruce trees used to make the canoe hulls.
