Oka-B: Sustainable & Practical
I love shoes, it’s a thing. When I go to any retail store, it’s most often the shoes that I end up purchasing, regardless of the 30 or 40 pairs that I have chilling in my closet.
But the thing about cute shoes, they’re not usually very practical.
Cute sandals — don’t wear them to the beach if you don’t want sand dust all over them or if you don’t want them to get wet.
Slides — okay, well there are a lot of options out there right now, you got me there.
Flats — they don’t last, so I don’t buy them.

In an effort to out-with-the-old, frustrating difficult shoes, that just don’t last, I would like to introduce you to Oka-B.
I first found a pair of Okabashi (Oka-B is affiliated) at Savers, dumb founded by the mysterious plastic-like material, thinking, “huh, this would be the perfect beach sandal.”

So when I got the opportunity to collaborate, to learn more about these water resistant, cute, & most of all very practical shoes, I was all in.
Come to find that Oka-B is
- Hand crafted in the USA (Georgia)
- A women lead company
- (has) all recyclable shoes, made in a close loop recycling process (i.e. minimal waste)
- (are) water resistant and, therefore, VERY easy to clean, with these fun little beads for optimal support
I am a plain Jane kind of gal, so I opted for simple colors and simple styles. The pebble & chai colored slides (Grace — click here) have been my go-to shoes for early morning dog walks. And the Morgan sandal (here) have been a topic of multiple random beach conversations, due to their practicality & adorableness.
I’m going to conclude by thanking Oka-B for giving me the opportunity to spread the word about their sandals and for the shoes themselves, because I’m in love.
