OluKai has announced its partnership with the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, a prestigious three-plus year journey of sailing canoes built with the same ingenuity that brought the first Polynesians to the archipelago of Hawaii. The Orange Country, CA-based lifestyle brand will supply the watermen and women crewing the canoes with Spring/Summer 2015 products to wear test and share feedback on the performance of each shoe.
Officially departing Hawaii this week, the voyage will highlight diverse cultural and natural treasures and the importance of working together to protect them. Covering 47,000 nautical miles, 85 ports and 26 countries, the Malama Honua will sail using the 3,000-year-old traditional method of Polynesian deep sea navigation, with no modern instruments.
