Travel gear is always about versatility. Unless you have unlimited patience for hauling around luggage and unlimited funds to pay for checking your bags when you fly, then you have unlimited wardrobe options when you travel.
But if you’d rather keep it lightweight and inexpensive, you need to choose gear that you can wear over and over.
The OluKai Nohea Moku men’s shoes are great go-to travel shoes for comfort, style, as well as wet conditions. They also smash down to pack without taking up much space.
The shoes are especially equipped to handle wet conditions well, and were designed with a light nautical look—complete with non-marking outsoles. But you don’t have to own a boat for these to work well for your travels.
The outsole also has razor siping for grip on wet surfaces, whether that’s a boat deck, rainy sidewalk, or the border around the swimming pool.
No need to pack socks to wear with these shoes. They’re made with a stretch bootie construction, designed to be comfortable to wear barefoot. The shoes also have no-tie bungee laces and a drop-in heel—which allows you to slip the shoes on and wear them like slides, or wear them like regular shoes. This feature comes in handy when you’re in the airport security line.
The dual-density PU anatomical footbed has a polyurethane gel insert and a soft microfiber cover. It’s comfortable enough that you won’t mind wearing the shoes around all day, and when the times comes, you can remove the foodbed and wash it.
If your Nohea Moku shoes do get wet, don’t worry. The medial water drainable ports and quick drying material will have your feet dry in no time.
The OluKai Nohea Moku shoes come in a huge variety of color combinations: black/black, dark shadow/dark shadow, dark wood/dark wood, trench blue/trench blue, trench blue/deep red, trench blue/dive camo, stormy blue/stormy blue, rock/mustang, fog/charcoal, and charcoal/dive camo.
