OluKai will outfit lifeguards with free footwear in Lahaina

Maui lifeguards will be receiving free OluKai high-performance footwear at Island Sole on Front Street from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today.

Partnering with the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association, OluKai will be outfitting Hawaii lifeguards with one of four designs – Kia’i Trainer II, which retails for $120; Kamiki, $110; Kia’i, $70; and Holomua, $90.

The Holomua, an adjustable three-point sandal, was tested by the lifeguard association.

The giveaways got underway Wednesday at Adventure Sports Maui; there also was a session at Hi-Tech. Other giveaways to lifeguards are planned on Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island.

The Island Sole event will be hosted by Hawaiian Waterman Hall of Famer and OluKai Konohiki, Archie Kalepa.
