I have owned my basic flips from olukai and have enjoyed them a lot so I was looking for a casual shoe for dress and thought I would try the Maloa, what a great shoe! Comfortable right out of the box and easy to wear. I did take the advice of others here and ordered a half size down from my normal size and they fit perfectly. I was wondering if I would feel the sole like others stated and did at first but then my foot just seemed to adapt. If you've enjoyed any of the companies shoes before and you're looking for something for casual dress, you can't go wrong with these.
What's up with Pricing? I had been looking to purchase these shoes for several days now and was going to order from the Olukai website. I then got an email from Backcountry (from whom I've purchased from in the past). I looked for the shoes, and viola...there they were...on sale! or so I thought. Of the roughly 30+ color/size combinations, only 4 obscure sizes are actually on sale! The others are the same (original) price as on the olukai website. Seems kind a bait and switch to me.
They offer discounts on odd color/size combo's that aren't selling. That's why the list the price as "FROM $96.00"
Bait-and-switch scemes work diffrently. For instance, you see a 60" TV selling for $300. When you get to the store, they tell you those TV's are sold out, but here's a similar one for $800.
The prices are listed up front, and they are in stock. It may suck, but it's not bait-and-switch. It happens to me too.
Yea, I knew it wasn't literally "bait & switch". I just couldn't think of a better term to call it : ) I'll most likely purchase them through Olukai.
Hi palp429496 we are working on improving the experience to make it more obvious for you when a specific color is on sale, stay tuned!

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Contrary to what it says in the tech specs, these do NOT have a Gore-Tex membrane. They are straight leather. I found this out when I received mine. Not a deal-breaker, but it definitely makes it less of a value.
I got the charcoal/stone variant and I really like them. I noticed that one reviewer (Jonathan Rambo) suggests possibly sizing up if you're on the cusp and another (Ryan Hamilton) suggests the opposite. I tend to agree with Jonathan. I normally wear a size 11 and that's what I got for these. They fit just right. So well, that I can't wear thick socks with them. I'm sticking with this size rather than 11.5 because they are very comfortable and, being leather, I know they will probably stretch a little as I break them in. I definitely would not have been happy in a size 10.5, though.
The soles are weird and you kind of feel the lugs through the midsole. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it is something to get used to. I'm not really sure what the point is of getting all creative with a part of the shoe that no one will see.
Overall, I'm very happy with these shoes.
I bought a pair of the older version of these which are fabric instead of leather or suede. I really like these shoes easy to get on and off comfortable year round and can work for casual or more formal occasions. I wear a 10.5 and 10.5 seems to work, but I think they run on my smaller spectrum so if you are already close to maxing out on 10.5 I think this is a shoe you might want to size up a half size.
These are perfect weekend or business casual shoes. Well made and very comfortable
These shoes are good looking and high quality, and can be casual or dressed up in a variety of looks. Everyday, wear-to-work, the corner pub, etc. However, they are REALLY wide, and not only do they fit and feel wide, they LOOK oddly wide... If they were sized/marked as wide shoes, that would be one thing, but they aren't, and for that reason I gave them 4 stars instead of five. And I don't have narrow feet, just average width.
Sweet, easy on easy off, very comfortable, should be great for winter.
Just got these last week and it's like I'm cheating when I wear them. They feel like I'm walking around in slippers all day, take that civilized world. After comfortable, the next best word to describe these is quality. Everything is PERFECT. The leather is perfect. The stitching, both ornamental and structural, is perfect. The fact that you can wear them as normal shoes, or fold the heal area down to wear as slides is awesome. Sizing is interesting. If you're going to wear them as normal shoes then size down 1/2 size. I wear an 11.5 most of the time and got these in 11.5. They are a bit bigger than I might like. But, if you fold down the heal the size is perfect. Seems to go against logic, but you'll have to trust me on this. Anyway, great shoes, buy them, love them.
Awesome shoe, these things are amazing. Very comfortable and really cool looking. I did have to go a half size smaller than my normal size, they probably aren't a full half size too large, but like a 1/4 size large.
I need a review or two about these shoes. I am thinking about buying them and need some advice. to they hold up? compfort? do they get a bit bigger with wear?
These are my first pair of Olukai shoes and I have to say I was a bit nervous because of the price tag. So far, they seem to be worth the extra dollars. I've had them for several months and they are holding up well. They are comfortable throughout the day, but I can sometimes feel the rubber patches of the sole on the bottom of my foot, which can be a bit weird. The slide feature is incredible. At first I didn't want to use it because of the stretching fear, but that's pretty much the only way I wear these bad boys, and no stretching has occurred thus far. Over all they were a good purchase and I would recommend them.
Hey Tyler, do they fit pretty true to size?
