Now I don’t have anything against flip-flops. I have a few pairs of Havaianas, and I must say that I do love the comfort that these give me. I am never without a pair when I go to the beach.
Still, there are times ordinary flip-flops just don’t seem to go that well with a get-up. If you’re wearing a skirt or a stylish top, you might want to go for slightly more sophisticated footwear. The good news is that you don’t have to give up comfort to pull this off. A pair of Oka b. shoes might be just the thing you need.
Oka b. has been around for a few years now. It was released by the footwear company Okabashi in 2005 with the objective of combining the therapeutic effects of reflexology with a fun but elegant kind of fashion. As such, their thongs, slip-ons, and mules, which are made from a special rubbery material called Microplast, are specially shaped to stimulate key pressure points on the soles of one’s feet.
So all of this might sound good, but you may be wondering about the designs. After all, there are some women who will gladly give up comfort for fashion. The great thing about Oka b. is that it comes in wide range of designs, from the simple to the outlandish, quirky to classy. Each design also comes in a variety of colors, so you can easily find a pair to match your outfit. Personally, I like wearing Oka b. thongs while I’m lounging at the beach, because the pairs I have go so well with my sarongs.
In addition to their fabulous flats, they also have a line of shoes with a bit of heel. Petite ladies will love these because they can enjoy some added height without having to suffer all day. These can also be worn with a variety of outfits without looking out of place. People won’t even think you’re wearing rubber slippers!
I’ve been wearing Oka b. footwear for a few years now, but I just found out recently that they have a wedding collection, too! If you’re having a beach or garden wedding, you might not last until the end of the night wearing a pair of stilletos. If I were to have a beach wedding, I would definitely go for something like this. The bonus is that you can wear it over and over with other outfits.
You can also pick up a pair for your boyfriend, brother, or dad. Their men’s collection may not be very extensive, but there are a couple of versatile styles that also provide the benefit of comfort and instant reflexology.
