OKA b. if you hadn’t heard of them, is a shoe company that has some wicked cute shoes and 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, and made in the USA.” That’s how OKA b. describes their line of shoes.
I have only been wearing my OKA b. Taylor flats for a couple days now, but I have had countless compliments on the “Hot Chocolate” colored ballet flats that I have been sporting with jeans, khakis and even tights for Thanksgiving week. People (mainly the women in my life) have been smitten with their patent leather look but flexible body and comfortable insole. I personally, was a little thrown off at first because I don’t actually own any shoes made from what seems like rubber and without divulging too much information, my feet perspire a bit and I worried that these shoes would just encourage that perspiration… but I was totally surprised with the breath ability along with the flexibility of the OKA b. Taylor flats.
The orthopedic foot beds are as described. They add a nice layer of comfort in a flat rather than a firm to the ground foot bed which will inevitably cause you discomfort. I also tend to judge my new shoes on how long it takes them to be uncomfortable and so far, with the OKA b. flats, I am still going pretty strong. Obvi, there is a little getting used to the feel but now I am smitten as a kitten with these shoes that love me. They fit true to size so I feel confident you can order online and get the size you need or that your lady needs. I would be totally stoked if my man took the initiative to get me a pair of shoes, especially ones like these.
Taylor Ballet Flats: The Taylor captures the essence of classic with perfection. A cute and comfortable, slimming fit and soft, flexible material deem this shoe an everyday must-have. Complete an effortlessly chic look with Licorice, or add a bold pop of color with Fuchsia, our favorite fall hue.
