In the heat of Georgia summer it's important to have comfortable flip flops and sandals. We sampled new 2013 summer styles from the Okabashi brand, which is designed and manufactured right here in metro Atlanta. The shoes feature reflexology-inspired massaging insoles with elevated arch support and ergonomic foot beds. What does that mean exactly? They are comfortable! Perfect for the beach, the home or running errands around town all day long. And don't worry about getting them dirty, they are easy to clean - in fact they are dishwasher safe.
The shoes have a 2-year guarantee, so wear them to your heart's content and afterwards return the 100 percent recyclable shoes to the eco-conscious brand's factory for recycling.
What's more, Okabashi is a brand that not only feels good, but you can feel good about wearing. In addition to being made in the USA (today less than 1.4 percent of shoes sold in the U.S. can make that claim) and recyclable, most styles are vegan-friendly, latex free and BPA free. The brand also tries to buy locally as well.
