In our months with the OluKai Lala it never ceased to impress, all the while keeping us at the height of fashion. Because this flip performed so well across all our rating metrics and was also the style favorite of all our tested models, we awarded it a Top Pick for Stylish Adventures. We felt comfortable, stable, and confident on slick terrain and the shoe was barely worse for wear despite our rigorous testing. Initially, we were worried about taking such a lovely sandal and dousing it with water, but even then the Lala rose to the top, repelling water and drying incredibly fast.
The shoe is an investment (it was the most expensive in our review), and it also runs quite small and narrow — so plan to size up if you're in between sizes. If you have a wider foot, maybe look to our Editors' Choice, the Birkenstock Gizeh, or our other roomier OluKai models, the Paniolo and the Ohana.
