Okabashi Shoes – Great Eco-Friendly Gifts for the Whole Family (Giveaway)

Okabashi Shoes – Great Eco-Friendly Gifts for the Whole FamilyThe Healthy Moms Magazine Christmas Wish List (Giveaway)


If you are looking for an affordable environmentally friendly gift that gives back for Christmas this year a pair of Okabashi Shoes is the right choice for you! These shoes are comfortable, and contains 30% recycled material made from marine and coastal recovered plastic material yarn, supportive with a massaging insole that helps relieve foot and back pain, guaranteed for 2 years, made in the USA, dishwasher-safe and machine washable, antimicrobial and odor resistant, anti-slip, completely water proof, and the ONLY shoe endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association. If that is not enough reasons to purchase a pair of these great shoes there is more!

Okabashi shoes has teamed up with Better World Books to celebrate Holidays with Sole starting on November 1, 2011. For every pair of Okabashi shoes purchased online through December 31st, Okabashi Brands will donate a pair of shoes to an Atlanta area homeless student in need. Better World Books will also be conducting a parallel program by donating an age-appropriate book for every book sold on their website. All donations will be distributed to Atlanta area schools in late March.

I had the opportunity to try out a pair of Okabashi shoes. I don’t normally wear flip-flops because I like to have support around my ankle. Regular flip-flops feel like they are going to fall off of my feet and are uncomfortable. Okabashi shoes are made with Microplast which is blend of plastics has been specially formulated to provide maximum comfort, durability, and recyclability. The material forms to my feet and the shoes don’t feel like they are going to fall off. I can wear these shoes around the house, when I am out for a walk with my kids or when my feet are sore after a vigorous work out.

Okabashi shoes were tested and endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association. The ACA concluded that Okabashi shoes provide superior foot support and massaging comfort, are durable and flexible, water and slip resistant on wet and dry surfaces, excellent use of micro-check, an antimicrobial agent, which keeps shoes dry and repels stain and other deterioration and are affordable.

“Because footwear plays such an important role in the functional biomechanics of the human body, choosing the right shoe can help eliminate pain in your back, hips, knees and feet. Okabashi’s product line provides wearers with a shoe that is designed for comfort and support at a very affordable price.”
ACA President, Richard G. Brassard, DC

“The endorsement from the ACA means a lot to our company since we designed our shoes to alleviate the type of back, leg and foot pain that plague people seeking chiropractic services. We feel that doctors of chiropractics will be excited to offer a comfort shoe to their patients that is both cost-effective and long-lasting.”
Okabashi Brands, Inc. President and CEO, Bahman Irvani”

I love my Okabashi shoes and they come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors so you will be able to find a pair for everyone in your family. Okabashi shoes can be purchased online at www.okabashi.com.
