August 14, 2020Fitness fanatics, gym-goers, and athletes wear the most comfortable shoe possible while working out; however, the post-workout shoe is just as important. It is necessary for the feet to recover after strenuous activity and hours spent standing. Thus, a recovery shoe is important as it allows your feet to breathe, your toes to relax and spread out as needed, and supplies extra cushioning for needed arch support and heel cradling. Since 1984, Georgia-based footwear company, Okabashi, has been manufacturing the ultimate recovery shoe. With a focus on what footwear was originally meant to be – true protection and support for your feet – Okabashi sandals and flip flops are just what the foot needs to recover. This, combined with the slip-resistant and machine-washable nature of the shoe, has made Okabashi a beloved choice in locker rooms, pro shops, spas, and more.

Founded in 1984, Okabashi is a family owned and operated American-made shoe company with a focus on foot health, a better environment, and a better economy. Okabashi shoes, which are available for both men and women in a variety of styles and colorways, are built for comfort and wellness. Each pair is created in their Buford, Georgia environmentally-friendly factory to reduce carbon footprint by limiting the fuel needed to transport their good to consumers and providing jobs and financial growth to the local economy. Okabashi shoes are 100% recyclable, featuring the company’s signature Microplast material, which is a specially formulated, patented, and recyclable blend of plastics that is far more durable than the plastics used in other, similar shoes and sandals. Okabashi shoes are practical, comfortable and built to last with the average customer owning at least three pairs. Since the company’s founding, they have sold more than 35 million pairs of shoes, and show no signs of slowing down. Okabashi also offers contract manufacturing and private labeling in their state-of-the-art facility where they’re capable of making up to 20,000 pairs of shoes a day.

Okabashi shoes have become a cult classic for gyms, pro-shops, locker rooms, and fitness fanatics around the country. The shoes, which are available for both men and women, are designed to be a source of comfort for the feet after a strenuous workout or a long day on the feet. Okabashi sandals and flip flops have a proprietary superior arch support and heel cup that help reduce strain on the knees, hips, and back and provide the support that is needed to properly recover. Additionally, the shoes are ideal for locker rooms and post-workout showers as they are water and slip-resistant. They can also easily be cleaned in the washing machine between uses. Okabashi shoes are available at, in major retailers across the U.S., and in a number of spas and hotel gift shops.
