New At TheShoeMart: OluKai Sandals

OluKai Sandals Now Available.


OluKai make Hawaiian inspired Luxury Sandals and Flip Flops.  Just in time for the summer, we’ve added a selection of their water-resistant and premium leather sandals to our store. OluKai build shoes for a thoughtful and adventurous life from premium leathers and quality materials. We were impressed to find out that the company strives to reduce their environmental footprint by using natural latex gum rubbers, repurposed compounds, recycled packaging, and leathers sourced from ISO-certified tanneries. Furthermore, they promise to continue improving these methods and practices every year.


OluKai footwear is designed to help you feel grounded and connected with every step.  The company’s mission statement proudly exclaims that they draw their inspiration from the ocean.  They strive to create a better class of products for lives lived in and around the water. Their products are designed and manufactured to promote a relaxed lifestyle that is respectful of the environment.  If these ideals resonate with you, we recommend slipping into a pair of OluKai sandals for the summer season.

The origins of the Carmina brand date back to 1866 when Matias Pujadas opened a modest workshop in Inca, Mallorca, Spain where he crafted tailor-made shoes.  The family tradition has been preserved to the present day.  Jose Albaladejo Pujadas, great-grandson to the founder, is committed to manufacturing some of the world’s best hand-crafted shoes. Carmina produce Goodyear Welted shoes of the finest caliber and are a welcomed addition to TheShoeMart family of high quality men’s dress shoes.  They will appeal to our customers who miss the presence of Moreschi’s handcrafted footwear.


Carmina pride themselves on their manufacturing process.  Every shoe is made using traditional Goodyear double stitching and submitted to a strict quality control process to ensure each pair meets the highest standards of excellence for quality. Skilled craftsmen scrutinize every detail including the last, pattern, material, welt, sole, and finish. The entire process takes fifteen to twenty days, and the results speak for themselves!  Carmina shoes are unique products that reflect the pride and craftsmanship with which they made; an increasingly rare thing to find.
