Water shoe or not, I’ve been wearing the Nohea Moku for months in all kinds of conditions. The stretch bootie upper is barefoot comfortable, breathable and quick drying. If you end up dunking the shoe, medial water ports drain the excess wet stuff. The non-marking rubber sole hasn’t let me slip once, and I like that the Drop-In Heel lets me slide my foot in and wear the Nohea Moku as a slip-on, or as a traditional heeled shoe. Due to the relaxed fit, OluKai recommends ordering a half size down — a good call. $95. olukai.com
