Oka-B is an American made, lifestyle brand
inspired by wanderlust, the everyday charm of
coastal living, and the desire to craft a better shoe.
We create stylish flats and sandals in beautiful
neutrals that compliment any outfit, as well as in
perfect pops of color that match seasonal swimsuit
and fashion trends.

 
We love the light, breezy mood that the coast
offers, and as such we create simple and modern
styles that reflect the ease of the coastal life. This
resonates not only through our aesthetics, but also
through our features. Oka-B shoes offer the all-day
comfort, durability, and wash-ability that every
woman needs. Whether she wanders near or far,
to the beach or to happy hour, her Oka-B’s will
take her there.

 

 

History

Oka-B launched in 2005 after seeing a need in the marketplace for an “upscale” spa shoe.

Oka-B was originally 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 ballet flat 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 eco-friendly, waterproof, made in the USA and priced under $50.

Oka-B began with two basic styles – a slide and a thong, designed to feel like a spa shoe by integrating the principles of reflexology and ergonomics. Today the line has expanded to include dozens of styles and colors adorned with natural seashell, gemstones and more, without compromising on comfort. Massage beads pamper the foot and promote good posture. Oka-B’s are also crafted using a single piece of proprietary Microplast® material and are antimicrobial, waterproof and washable. Each season our designers introduce colorful new designs to the collection based on wanderlust and the charm of coastal living.  From summer brights to subdued fall tones, our fabulous bridal collection to the casual weekend flip-flop, and the most comfortable ballet flat you’ll ever wear, there’s an Oka-B for every look and for every occasion.

Philanthropy

To us, Made in the USA also means being responsible to our community beyond producing quality products and reducing our carbon footprint. It means using those products to help others in need. In addition to encouraging our own customers to send back their well-loved Oka-B sandals to our factory where they are ground and turned into new product, OKA b. is proud to partner and donate both product and dollars to the following organizations:

  • The American Cancer Society – Oka-B supports the fight against breast cancer by donating to the American Cancer Society (link this to www.ourgreatestfeat.com) as well as sponsoring events such as Relay for Life and The Hope Lodge. Since 2010 our company has donated thousands of shoes to breast cancer patients going through treatment at cancer centers nationwide. Oka-B has also created a limited edition Pink Ribbon Madison slide (link this to the page where we sell these slides). For every pair of these slides sold online, $10 will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
  • Souls4Soles – In 2010, Oka-B donated more than 20,000 pairs of sandals to the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake.
  • Oka-B is a family owned company that actively supports and fosters community building in Atlanta and around the globe through various additional philanthropic initiatives.
