Not what I was expecting...
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
...after reading all the 5 star reviews. Paid $120 on-sale and don't think they're worth $50. I'll give them 2 stars for style (they looked good coming out of the box) but as another poster mentioned, they're uncomfortable around the ankles. No, they were just plain painful. I had to apply multiple applications of mink oil just to get them to soften up to just be bearable. I also had to apply the mink oil everywhere else as the leather was staining from the get-go (where's that water-resistance as advertised?). Lastly, my feet are sensitive to cold and I've found these not only a "cold" shoe to wear, but that they have a severe lack of cushioning on the sole (thus the cold?). I honestly don't think I'll buy Olukai's again.
