From the streets of Pa’ia to the trails of Haleakala, Hawaii is rich in local culture and natural history–something that OluKai Founder Bill Worthington has always celebrated and supported. This past weekend, the Irvine, CA-based brand did both, hosting its fifth annual Ho’olaule’a Ocean Festival in Maui. More than 2,000 locals and festival goers, as well as athletes and representatives from REI, Zappos and Sports Chalet, descended on the island for two days of canoe sailing, surfing, luau, hula and live music.
Just in time for back-to-school season, Zappos has teamed up with Keds to offer two lucky Taylor Swift fans the chance to win a signed pair of Keds by Taylor Swift. The sweepstakes is being held from now through Sunday, August 25, on www.zappos.com. For rules and to enter click here.
Online behemoth Zappos was the latest victim of a Kanye West rant on Monday when the rapper let loose on a Bret Easton Ellis podcast, calling out the e-tailer for selling “s**t product.” “I got into a giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on,” West said. “Meanwhile, he sells all this s**t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling s**t product.”
