Love my new sandals from Okabashi Shoes!

I received a pair of Sandals from Okabashi Shoes for review.
These shoes are called the Cross - Strap sandal.  They are available in your choice of color, toffee or black.  It is a classic style with a simple design, but they are so comfortable.  They are easy to slip on and off and they do not slide around on my foot as I walk.  The built in nubs on the inside of the shoe massage my feet as I walk.  It feels so good.  My feet feel pampered.  I no longer have tired aching feet after a full day of running around doing my errands.  And they are so versatile.  They're perfect for wearing around the house, at the beach or when I'm out and about going through my normal daily routine.  You can purchase these shoes on their website for $18.99.  

Okabashi shoes are proudly made in the USA.  Located in the small town of Buford, Georgia, Okabashi is a family owned and operated business.  Their line of sandals and flip flops is focused on foot health and wellness.

The Irvani family founded Okabashi in 1981. shortly after they arrived in the United States.  The were inspired by Japanese concepts of reflexology and design, and followed them when they created their sandals.  The shoes have active arch support and massage beads, which is what makes them so comfortable.  And each pair comes with a two year guarantee.

These swimming companions also help children who are 18 months and older slowly become accustomed to all types of aquatic environments:
• bathtub (soapy water)
• swimming pool (chlorinated water)

There is also a tab sewn onto the doll’s back so it can be hung up to dry after bathing, going to the pool or visiting the beach.
