Flip Flop Friday

It happened by accident. 
We stumbled upon them. 

The conversation went something like this:
Okay, they are cute.  Maybe we'll just try one pair on.
Okay, maybe two just to be sure.
Three? Four?
and on and on.  We tried on so many pairs of flip flops we lost count. 
And we loved each and every pair. 

You know what that means?  We gotta sell them!  If we love them we know our customers will too.
We are now an official OKA b retail partner!  With several styles, colors and heel height to suit pretty much any occasion between now and Labor Day.

If you are unfamiliar with OKA b (as we were) here are the highlights.  Beginning with their slogan: The Original Shoes that Love You! Where The Spa Meets the Street...

OKA b. 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, made in the USA and priced under $45.

That's not only a shoe you'll love. That's a shoe that loves you.

The therapeutic principles of reflexology guide the foot bed design of all OKA b. shoes. Their enhanced massage beads, arch support and sculpted heel cup will pamper your every step!

The Proprietary Microplast technology provides a lightweight, flexible shoe that remains comfortable and durable.

Non-absorbent material has anti-microbial properties that resists the growth of bacteria, odor, and mildew.

OKA b. shoes are slip-resistant, providing stability on wet or dry surfaces. These colorful shoes won't leave marks and scratches on your floor.

Their non-absorbent material makes our shoes machine washable and easy to sanitize. They never fade, making it east to keep your feet clean and healthy.

The factory and design team are located just north of Atlanta in Buford, Georgia. This on-site manufacturing allows for unmatched quality control and attention to details.

OKA b. shoes are recyclable! When it's time to retire your well loved OKA b. shoes, you can take them to any recycling facility that accepts items labeled as #3 under the International Universal Recycling Code. Alternatively, OKA b.'s can be sent back to our factory where we will happily recycle them into new pairs.

Please visit us in Canton or ONLINE to experience OKA b for yourself. 
If it sounds too good to be true we encourage you to read the reviews online.  We googled OKA b shoe review and found lots of happy customers with happy FEET!

Oh Idaho. . .

I love the weather in Texas.   Especially this time of year.
I love not having to shovel snow or deal with driving in it.
I love that my power was less than $200 last month.
I love that I was sweating last week in Canton.

But I do have to say I miss the beautiful scenery of Idaho.
