The Whakatā Town oozes with style and comfort. This laid back, back-free slide has a Bloom algae-blended resin footbed and midsole providing a smooth, comfortable ride, and a suede leather webbed upper that is in style at almost anywhere. Slide in and glide into a new level of comfort, and relax.
Whakatā, pronounced fah-cah-TAAH, is Māori for “to catch breath, rest, have a break”.
Oboz consulted and got approval from the Māori language and culture guide at Oboz’s New Zealand-based parent company, KMD Brands, for use of the name. Oboz intends to honor the Māori culture in the best way—both within KMD Brands’ company walls and in the broader community.
