OluKai Boots, pretty sweet!

Post by toxicavenger » Mon Nov 09, 2015 8:03 pm

A while back Josh (YOHOHO) had some boots for sale and I was interested in them but at the time I couldn't justify buying another pair of boots. Well about 6 months went by and I was selling a beater watch and he offered a trade. I have to say I knew nothing about this name brand and quality but I couldn't wait until fall got here to try them out (since they are kind of insulated).

WOW I am blown away by them. The quality seems top notch and the feel of them is perfect. They are the first boots I have ever owned that I didn't not rip out the insole and put some Super Feet in right away. The leather finish all the way around is super nice and the soles seems like they will have some longevity to them. The only thing I wasn't super keen about at first was the faux patina on the toes of the boots but they look great in person.

Here is some last minute pics I took of them tonight.

Nice. I love their flip flops and slide ons. Didn't even realize they made boots. Congratulations

I have worn their slip on shoes for a couple of years now and love them....never looked at their boots though. Enjoy those babies!

I can't find the exact specs for the boots since these might be a older design but I did find what they are lined with. The website says: Antimicrobial Merino wool lining backed with 200g Thinsulate® insulation.

Thanks again for the feedback on these. I did treat them with some of the Obenauf's Heavy-Duty Leather Preservative that Jeff gave me a while back and I going to give them one more coat before the weather turns sour.
