I purchased my first pair of Olukai Sandals about 6 years ago they are buy far the best fitting most comfortable I have ever owned. I have purchased my two previous pair online, both very satisfactory. I have not been able to find the Mea Ola in my size at stores until now. I wanted to see if the leather offered the same comfort and fit as the others. While on vacation in Denver Colorado I found them, I was worried that the leather would cause irritation between my toes and if they would still have the lumps and bumps in the same places as the soft foot pads, they do and no irritation between the toes they feel to have more support. The Olukai are the only sandals I can walk in all day in complete comfort. I am more than satisfied with the comfort and quality of Olukai and will continue to wear them. None other can compar.
