Easy come, easy go, here's really no love loss. Moving on to the next pair- not this time. This time I gave consideration to the safety risks we are taking by buying and wearing dangerous footwear. Step it up with these essential safety and wellness tips before putting your feet in flip-flops.

Essential Safety & Wellness Tips Before 
Putting Your Feet in Flip-Flops

Bringing science and sensibility to style, Okabashi stands out from other major footwear manufacturers with a strong focus on the protection and support of our feet. The Okabashi collection showcases a wide selection of affordably priced styles and colors for men and women, designed for comfort, safety and wellness. 

Choosing to wear shoes designed for the wellness of our feet often comes secondary to trendy, fashionable, stylish shoe styles. According to research from Okabashi, " Each year millions of shoes are created by designers with a keen sense of new trends in fashion, but with little or no knowledge about the health or well-being of the human foot." Not surprisingly, many of our podiatry problems result from wearing improperly fitting shoes.

"Okabashi takes a very different approach to footwear design. Starting with a basic understanding of the anatomic structure and functionality of the foot, a unique footwear product is created based on the belief that good health starts from the foot up."
