A Deep Dive on OluKai Kā‘anapali Mens Golf Shoes Golf Shoes
By now, you may have met the OluKai Kapalua men’s golf shoes. It’s possible you’ve taken the OluKai Wai‘alae golf shoes for a spin, too. Well, we’re excited to share that we’re bringing a third men’s golf shoe style to the green, and it’s called the Kā‘anapali.
What’s so special about OluKai Kā‘anapali Men’s Golf Shoes? In addition to breezy good looks and maximum comfort, this golf shoe delivers the ultimate lateral stability, so you can stay balanced and power your swing.
OLUKAI KĀ‘ANAPALI GOLF SHOES DELIVER REINFORCED LATERAL STABILITY
Think Kā‘anapali, think stability. This golf shoe is made with ultra-lightweight materials and a tough outer shell to give you reinforced stability. How do we do it? The outer shell is made with a hot melt overlay to lock in your stance and add durability and sturdiness—so you can keep wearing them round after round.
OK, GREAT. BUT HOW DOES THIS HELP MY GOLF GAME?
We’re glad you asked! Break down a golf swing and you’ll realize it’s a complicated combination of components. Although the downswing happens in less than a second, its high speed creates a ton of momentum. What’s more, you might be standing on a slippery surface, adding in another complicating factor. Translation: You need a golf shoe that stays put and provides stability, balance, and flexibility so you can create consistency and energy in your swing. The OluKai Kā‘anapali Men’s Golf Shoes deliver all the lateral stability you need.
LET’S TALK TRACTION TOO…
That stay-put element we mentioned above? That’s traction. Kā‘anapali is packed with plenty of traction and enough comfort for off-the-course wear. Designed for stability and control, this golf shoe comes with a kalo-inspired spikeless design featuring our Wet Grip Rubber for multi-directional traction.
WITH ALL THAT STABILITY, TRACTION, AND TOUGHNESS, ARE THEY COMFY?
“The Kā‘anapali is super breathable, very soft, and my feet stay cool. You forget you’re even wearing shoes. They’re just that comfortable.” -Reece Alnas, PGA Pro
According to Reece Alnas – Assistant Golf Professional at Kuki‘o Golf and Beach Club – comfort means everything. And if he finds these ridiculously comfortable, we’re confident you will too. How do we do it? Inspired by the feeling of bare feet in wet sand, the anatomically contoured footbeds and responsive midsoles deliver all-day cushioning on the course. What’s more, the footbeds are removable & washable, so they aren’t just comfortable, they’re practical and stay fresh too.
Reece adds, “They’re a little more structured, but still very sporty and flexible. I have room to wiggle my toes, which is a big thing for me.” So basically, you get the perfect combo of stability and comfort, ideal for those who are really focused on their swing.
SUPPORT – ON AND OFF THE COURSE
“One of the first things I noticed was the freedom and the arch support. It’s a perfect fit for my work and everyday lifestyle.” -Reece Alnas
The great thing about OluKai golf shoes is that you can wear them on and off the course. The tough shell and cushioned fit will keep your feet nice and protected. And hey, all that mesh (which is water and stain-resistant mesh by the way) feels pretty great when an ocean breeze passes by. And with a crossover Drop-On Heel® design that will take you from the course to happy hour in town, these are the multi-purpose shoes you didn’t know existed.
“As a guy from Hawai‘i, I’d rather wear slippahs than shoes. Having that slip-on feature makes chipping with a beer so much easier.” -Alex Ching, Pro Golfer
