Inspired by too many painful lessons learned packing down to remote breaks, the Kiawe is designed to protect and support on challenging terrain. Featuring a protective plate that runs under the entire foot, Kiawe shields feet from all the sharp things that stand between you and those secret spots.
- Lightweight, quick-drying synthetic straps are built with reinforced stitching for those who want sandal style and comfort made to venture off trail.
- Kiawe features a compression molded EVA footbed textured with Dakine Surf Traction for additional grip when moisture from surf or sweat comes between sole and sandal.
- Layered above the ultra-grip rubber outsole lies Dakine's DK Defend layer, a full-length protective plate to defend against sharp objects ruining your day as you pioneer new paths to new experiences.
