For years, people have told us, “We LOVE our sandals, but what do we do when it’s cold out, or when I need something with closed-toes for work, or if I need a bit more protection?”
The new Ipari Hana is the answer.
The Hana is, first and foremost, a casual shoe. But since it’s built on our high-performance FeelTrue® sandal base, it’ll handle much more.
We don’t recommend using the Hana as a running shoe, but we know some of you will wear the Hana for more than just chillin’ at a coffee shop.

Why you’ll love the Ipari Hana
Why is it called “Ipari Hana”?
“Ipari” is the category name we’re using for all of our closed-toe shoes (yes, that means more are coming!). It was inspired by “rarajipari,” the running, ball-kicking game the Tarahumara play… even though it’s an endurance game, the emphasis is on FUN. Then, “Hana” was inspired by the name of the town in Maui, Hawaii that exemplifies the feeling of casual adventure. Plus, “hana” means “craft” in Hawaiian.
Put it together and you get a well-crafted, elegant casual shoe that’s perfect for your next adventure.
Is the Hana for MEN or for WOMEN?
Technically, it’s a “men’s” shoe. That means it’s a bit wider and has a slightly different shape than a women’s shoe of the same size. We have a women’s version, the Lena, coming out in the Spring of 2017.
BUT… we have lots of women wearing the Hana.
If you’re a woman who wants the Hana, check the sizing templates, below to see if it’ll be right for your foot.
Get the right size for your Ipari Hana
Sizing for a shoe is different than a sandal. And you probably have shoes of different sizes that fit you correctly.
So, to reduce the chance of getting an incorrect size, we HIGHLY recommend you follow these instructions (BTW, even if you follow them, sizing is not a 100% perfect process, which is why we have a free exchange policy):
NOTE: Please follow these instructions to avoid ordering problems.
Here’s a video showing the process
This will give you a good idea of your size… but PLEASE follow the next step whenever possible.
NOTE: The width of the Hana is approximately EE width, some people have experienced stretching in the canvas upper to slightly wider.
