In 2005, founders of Olukai, Bill Worthington and Matt Till created their brand and based it in Irvine, California. They created this brand based on their ancestors who passed down stories and values to them. They believe in a positive and sustainable life based on your choices, so they created this brand to inspire and spark actions in others. The name Olukai is meaningful and perfect for what the brand is geared towards, Olu means “Comfort” and Kai means “Ocean” they are not only comfortable but they are also perfect for any beach trip. Before they were profitable, they gave back to their community and do today as well. Olukai believes in the power of giving and helping others.
It started as a different approach to a footwear company. Olukai wanted to create footwear that combines durability for the waterman, ocean lifestyle, and a brand that has strong values and roots with style, comfort, and craftsmanship. Olukai produces products they believe in. Products they can stand behind. They believe in the quality of product and material, craftsmanship in construction and finding quality in life by the choices we make every day. Olukai believes that everybody, no matter where you live, can live aloha.
The Olukai brand and founders have created this brand to promote inner peace, a quality product, and a way to give back to the ones around them in need. They have paired with us, Country Club Prep, to help expand their brand.
