Scott Hawaii Leahi Slipper

Started in 1932, Scott Hawaii was founded by Elmer and Jean Scott from Marblehead, MA. The Scott family comes from a very long line of shoe makers and “it didn’t take them long to establish a reputation within their community of Hawaii as manufacturers of quality footwear.” They first produced “plantation boots for the sugarcane and pineapple fields,” but due to WWII, “materials came in short supply” hence they started designing casual footwear. This soon led to the development of the “slippah.” The “Leahi” Slipper has a molded outsole and features a non-slip arch suppport, textured leather insole and a rolled leather strap that is lined with nylon to eliminate stretch. It is offered in tan, brown and black.
