Share Article

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 shoe that’s eco-friendly, waterproof, made in the USA and priced under $40. That’s not only a shoe you’ll love. That’s a shoe that loves you.

Tara in Sapphire with Navy Blue and White Coiled Rope Pendant, $25

It's like I took the spa with me when I left. My feet have never felt better in a sandal!

Spring is the season of renewal and no one is prepared to jump in feet first more than Atlanta based OKA b. Footwear. Introducing a Spring/Summer 2011 collection that’s as vibrant as it is upbeat, OKA b.’s newest offerings capitalize on a brighter future for all. With the majority of price points under $30, the 2011 collection is mindful of consumer spending while concurrently lifting spirits with its cheerful palette. Keeping the mood light and upbeat was the goal for this season’s collection. “Our country has been in an economic slump that’s affected everyone’s mood, no matter what the market,” says Kelly Schmidt, Vice President of OKA b. “And we’re finally starting to turn the corner and see our nation prosper. We wanted our collection to reflect that hope, that positive outlook, and to give people something to smile about as they step into spring.”

Inspired by the candy colored hues of springtime, just a sampling of OKA b.’s spring styles include the Tiffany with contrasting animal print bows, the Erin stacked with floral-shaped leather rings, the Anita adorned with matching striped and solid bows, the Angelica with leather flowers, and the Alice with layered patent flowers, just to name a few. The nautical-inspired Tara is outfitted with a coiled rope pendant while this season’s Madison Brights are the ultimate foot candy, wrapped in cheerful whimsy in a variety of patterned grosgrain bows.

As with all of OKA b.’s offerings, shoes in the 2011 Spring/Summer Collection feature the company’s signature reflexology inspired massage beads and ergonomic footbeds, are waterproof, antibacterial and seamlessly designed, made from one piece of the company’s proprietary recyclable Microplast™ material. They are also eco-friendly and manufactured in a low waste factory outside of Atlanta.
