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”
