Style: Okabashi Earth Friendly Sandals for Spring

I’m not a flip-flop kind of girl. I own one pair that I bought ten years ago. I use them to go to the pool. They finally broke a few months ago and I threw them away, vowing to never buy another flip-flop. So when the gang at Okabashi sent me a pair I was skeptical.


Well I can say, I was wrong. These Maui sandals are lightweight and cute, but not cutesy. They are non-slip (can I tell  you how many times my last pair of flip-flops slipped, nearly wrench my back out and say some potty words?) These flip-flops even have arch support!

The bed is designed with a massaging insole that made me not want to take them off. My kids even asked why I had shoes on inside the house, “Where are you going?”

“No where, I’m just wearing shoes.” They gave me a look like they didn’t even know who I was anymore. I don’t even know who I am anymore. The Maui flip-flops are even made of 30% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. Cute, comfortable, and earth friendly sandals, perfect.

And they’re only $14.99. Perfecter..est.

I’m going to buy two more pairs.


Do you have a pair of flip-flops that you love?
