OKA b. Footwear

The Original Shoes that Love You
Where The Spa Meets the Street...

OKA b. is founded on the principle that fashion and comfort should never be mutually exclusive. Imagine a shoe that not only looks great with every outfit but feels great with every step. A sandal given the thumbs up by your doctor and your best friend. A slide that matches your wedding gown and massages your feet as you dance down the aisle. A flip-flop so stylish it's featured in fashion magazines. A shoe that's 100% recyclable, waterproof, made in the USA and priced under $40.

I was sent this pair of nice simple black slides for work.  I love flip flops and these are cute and fun like the flip flops I love but they have something else that is a must have for me!  Support!  I don't care how cute a shoe is, if it doesn't have proper support I can't wear it.  I have never been able to squish my giant, size 10, and wide, feet into cute little pointed toed heels, although I would love to. 

The shoes from OKA b. are not a wide shoe so they aren't the perfect shoe for me but they are not by any means narrow.  I just have really wide feet lol.  Other than that they are very comfortable and I could be on my feet all day in these shoes!  They are also made of a different material.  They are not typical rubber, they are very very flexible and almost like a bouncy ball, if you can picture that lol.  I would definitely recommend these shoes and will be picking up another pair if they come out with a wide version!

OKA b. has a large women's line and even some men's sandals as well.  Be sure to check them out and feed your shoe addiction :)

Which ones did you feel fit the best with wide feet?

My feet betray a romantic rendezvous with Fred Flinstone at some point in my genetic history!

Hahaha, I find that the ones with the smaller straps are better for wide feet. As well the ones that don't go near the biggest part of your foot are the best
