One of my favorite things about the hot weather is sandals. Sock draw empty? Can’t find your left shoe? Who cares, you have sandals, slide them on and go. You probably can’t wear them to work, but when the weekend rolls in the sandals comes out. Sandals or flip flops or clogs, they all mean freedom to me.
One of the most interesting sandal makers that I have been watching is Okabashi. With over 25 years of experience, this company stands out not only for the unique look of its products, but how they manufacture them. Made in Buford Georgia, Okabashi footwear is made from recycled materials and is itself 100% recyclable. Their sandals are not only good looked, but they were awarded the “overall wellness” endorsement from the American Chiropractic Association. How many times have you bought cheap flip flops that irritated or even damaged your feet? Okabashi is a quality brand, they are so confident in what they make that they offer a 2 year warranty on all of their footwear. Most appliances don’t come with that type of guarantee.
Okabashi footwear comes in dozens of styles and colors. With so many choices you should have no trouble finding the perfect pair. They range in price from $14- $23. If you buy before June 20th and use coupon code “SUMMER13″ you will get 20% off your order.
Okabashi just hired 150 workers at their manufacturing facility in Georgia and are looking to add 150 more in the near future. They are a growing American success story, proof that Made in the USA still works, and they need our support. When you decide to buy your next pair of sandals skip those cheap imported flip flops that will wear out in a month or two and buy a quality pair of Okabashi sandals.
