If you’re the kind of athlete who perform most of your training in or around water, the OluKai Amphibious line is for you. Featuring the Kai’i Trainer and the Kamiki, these sneakers are specially designed and tested to meet the needs of the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association. OluKai mentor Archie Kalepa prefers to wear the trainer so much that he refers to it as “part of our tool chest”, our being the lifeguards of Hawaii. In these dead-of-winter months, frankly nothing sounds better than slipping on a pair of these for a rigorous day of big sea paddling.
Both models are quick-drying, incredibly breathable, and featured removable / washable hydrophobic footbeds. The Trainer will retail for $120, while the Kamiki is $110. Visit OluKai for more information.
