Olukai ‘Alapa Li Sneakers
In September 2015 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, with 17 ambitious and universal objectives to transform our world for the better. Culture is both a key enabler and driver for the ongoing economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainable development. Culture is who we are and what shapes our identity. No development can be sustainable without including culture. Hawaiian shoe company OluKai, celebrates the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawai’i while giving a portion of all proceeds to their Ama OluKai Foundation. Their sporty, lightweight ʻĀlapa Li sneaker was created to mirror the passion Hawaiian people share for an active lifestyle. It’s a shoe that will comfortably take you from a morning surf session, to the office, to the gym, and anywhere in-between—all in the same day. The unique Drop-In Heel® design offers the convenience and functionality of both a shoe and slide-on. The upper is made of breathable air mesh over a soft, anti-microbial, moisture-wicking footbed with a ‘Wet Grip Rubber’ outsole, offering added traction on wet surfaces. And every pair gives back to celebrating the cultural diversity and distinction of the Hawaiian peoples.
