The Okabashi Flip Flop Phenomenon

Being an official Las Vegas resident now, I have been amassing a collection of sandals and flipflops like never before. Socks and sneakers have been put away and high heels are nonexistent in my wardrobe these days. When it is over 109F already and barely May, you know that summer is going to be a hot one. I discovered the Okabashi flip-flops recently and had received a sample of Maui to test out.  There is a dedicated fan base for Okabashis online and from the comments, one fan suggests putting them in the dishwasher to clean them even.  I definitely will not do that, and I think just a quick rinse with the hose will be sufficient!

The Maui flip flop is a must-have for every woman’s shoe collection. This sandal is non-slip, flexible, washable and supportive, making it a great post workout, fitness recovery shoe as well as perfectly suited for everyday wear. 

The fun, floral insole will remind you of a tropical vacation and the comfort provides therapy for your feet with every step.

I have been pretty bummed that Polyvore is no longer exists so I would love to plan a cute outfit with these. Guess I have to do it IRL!  One of the coolest things about Okabashi is that you can lower your carbon footprint by purchasing these sandals made from innovative, vegan, bio-based soy materials.

What color Maui do you like?

Less than 1% of shoes worn in the United States today are made in the USA.

Okabashi shoes are manufactured in Buford, Georgia and each pair travels only 7% as far as the average imported shoe. This prevents 10,000 miles of carbon emissions from the ships, planes and trucks required to transport shoes to the US. Resulting in a 1/200th of the average imported shoe carbon footprint.

Our women leadership team goes above and beyond stringent US standards to create opportunity and community for our diverse 200 employees, including veterans.

At Okabashi, we believe in closed-loop recycling to reduce the use of virgin material and to keep old shoes from becoming environmental waste.

The average pair of Okabashi shoes contain 15-25% recycled material.

If you return your well-loved and worn Okabashi shoes to our factory, we will recycle them for use in new Okabashi products or other non-apparel goods.

Once we receive your shoes, we will email you a 15% off promo code to use on your next pair of Okabashis as a thank you from us and the planet.
