Introducing the Ali’i Collection

A collection of premium men’s footwear celebrating the ancient Hawaiian royals

| posted on March 15, 2012

OluKai‘s most exclusive product release to date, the Ali’i Collection is a pedestal line of ultra-premium, limited-edition, limited-distribution footwear for men (only 300 pairs per 6 skus will be made and sold).

We’ve spent years researching and designing this special collection which marks a pinnacle in OluKai’s commitment to quality and style. This collection, with its material references to the royal ahu’ula capes, its highest quality camel leathers, and meticulous hand stitching, has been created as an offering to the ancient Polynesian royals who held together a flourishing culture. Each pair is etched with the traditional Hawaiian phrase of community strength: Pupukahi i holomua: Unite in order to progress.

We are also offering a Collector’s Box Set that includes all three limited addition styles packages in a custom wooded shoe box along with a personalized letter from designer Bill Worthington. For every Box Set
purchased, we will plant an endemic Koa tree in Maui’s Honokowai Valley in honor of our ongoing partnership with Maui Cultural lands. Only 50 Box Sets were made, so they will be very rare.
