Okabashi Shoes: Earth Friendly Shoes for Summer

Okabashi Shoes: Earth Friendly Shoes for Summer

Okabashi

Okabashi is a company that manufactures 100% recyclable shoes in Buford, Georgia.  Their shoes offer superior arch support, massaging insoles and anti-slip protection.  Their shoes start at $14.99 and offer a 2 year guarantee.  An interesting little tidbit, their site states their products contains 25% recycled materials, has a zero waste manufacturing process and are vegan friendly.

Honestly, I’m not sure what that last one means really, but given that Monkey has a very dear friend that is vegan I have learned that it probably means there is no use of any type of animal anything in them.  Of course, I could look it up, but if you care then you already know what it means!  LOL.

Something else I think is cool is that the company will actually recycle the shoes for you.  Just mail them to the address on the website and they’ll make sure that your old flip flops aren’t piling up the landfills!

The Product Review

I allowed Monkey to enjoy the trial of a pair of Okabashi flip flops, as she tends to wear shoes out pretty quick!  The durability was quite an attraction!  The quality of the shoes is great, you can tell by looking at them and checking them out that they are well made.

I was somewhat concerned concerned that they would only work with casual wear but they work with some outfits that are a little less casual as well, such as a fun skirt or summer dress.

The only thing that wasn’t favorable was the fit, as the size that she always wears turned out to be a little too tight.  Granted, she has wide feet but she always wears the same size and coming across this issue is a new one.  In addition, the massaging insole on the edge of the shoe irritated her foot.  The part in the middle, however, was comfortable.
