Okabashi Shoe Review & Giveaway (for men or women)

Disclosure: I received a sample item to facilitate an honest review. No other form of compensation took place and all opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Summer's making its way out, but it 'ain't over yet!' Not just yet anyway. Our kids still have a week of summer vacation left, and the weather that turned cool early in the season (and stayed that way) has gotten hot again.  Crazy, I know, but true.



Warm weather for me means many things, including flip-flops! You have no idea how glad I was when this type of shoe came in style again. I was even more ecstatic when durable, pretty designs started popping up left and right. Long gone are the days of flip-flops that hurt your toes, and in their place are these wonderful, comfy shoes that allow you to be casual and cool.

Okabashi understands the need for quality and cute, and has created a line of attractive, very sturdy shoes that are 100% recyclable. The amount of waste saved because of that is astounding, and I encourage you to read about it here:  http://www.okabashi.com/Recycle/b/2493603011?ie=UTF8&title=Recycle  The shoes are made in a Georgia factory, so transportation costs are minimized, and the local economy gets a boost as well. Okabashi shoes are also 100% Vegan and they come with a 2-year guarantee (win-win-win-win-win!).

I totally need to get these to wear when I garden. :D

The bottoms of these shoes are hard, not pliable, so added protection is a given, they have a built-in arch support, and they are comfortable enough to wear all day (which I have done many times since I received mine). There are many colors and styles to choose from. I was presented with the very first pair pictured at the top of this post, and another sampling of what is offered can be found below.

Just a very small sampling of colors and designs. There are many others available!

You can learn more about Okabashi and their shoes by visiting their website: http://www.okabashi.com

You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and/or Pinterest, and be sure to check out their photo gallery here (it's one of the cutest I've seen).

I love the Women's Maui in Oxford Blue! I have a pair of Okabashi shoes that are over 20 years old. They have about had it, but amazing that they held up this long since I wear them in the house constantly and out of the house on occasion.
