OluKai Hikianalia Sandals

Voyage in Style with OluKai Hikianalia Men’s Sandals

By Jill | October 5, 2018

The colonization of the Pacific Islands is among the greatest human adventure stories of all time, and the feat of Polynesian wayfinding that took place between 3,500 and 500 years ago was discounted by scholars until 1976, on the grounds that ancient Polynesians didn’t have the intelligence to be master navigators. It was that year…
