Okabashi’s New 100% Recyclable Maui Flip Flop Sandal for Women

Okabashi’s innovative Maui flip flops are dishwasher-safe, recyclable and provide relief for foot and back pain.

 

ATLANTA, March 23, 2010 – Okabashi Brands, Inc., the only major manufacturer of sandals and flip flops in the United States, today announced its new Maui Flip Flop line for the 2010 Spring and Summer season.  The Maui flip flop is crafted with feminine styling, massage beads and excellent arch support.  While being joyfully comfortable, the Maui’s massaging insole stimulates nerve endings to improve foot circulation and reduce foot pain.  The supportive arch and heel give the foundation necessary for proper posture, alignment and back pain relief. Okabashi’s Maui Flip Flops can be found online at www.okabashi.com/maui for under $20.00 in a range of enticing colors.

Like all 2010 Okabashis, the Maui is dishwasher-safe – it will not shrink or lose its vibrant color with frequent high temperature washing. High dishwasher temperatures destroy germs, viruses and bacteria that are often picked up in public places. Like using hand sanitizer to protect the body from illness, it is important to sanitize sandals and flip flops to protect feet from disease.

While car­ing for the woman who wears it, the Maui also cares for the environment in which she lives. The Maui is 100% recyclable, made of up to 30% recycled material and is vegan friendly.  When Mauis are well-worn and well-loved, they may be returned to Okabashi for free closed-loop recycling; Okabashi can use the plastics in the Maui to make new shoes.

Maui Flip Flop Features:

  • Made in the USA
  • 100% recyclable and contain 30% recycled material
  • Supportive with a massaging insole that helps relieve foot and back pain.
  • Guaranteed for 2 years

Okabashi Celebrates 25 Years as U.S. Based Footwear Designer and Manufacturer

– Okabashi stays committed to producing American Made footwear despite the fact that imports supply almost 99 percent of U.S. footwear consumption –

ATLANTA, March 23, 2009 – Okabashi Brands, Inc., a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer, officially kicks off its 25th anniversary commemoration today, celebrating a quarter century of making casual and comfortable shoes in a manufacturing facility inBuford, Ga., just north of Atlanta.

With more than 25 million pairs sold in the US, Okabashi’s “Made in the USA” status is indeed rare when you consider that almost 99 percent of the U.S. footwear market was supplied by imports in 2006, according to a report titled 2006 Trends: An Annual Compilation of Statistical Information on the U.S. Apparel and Footwear Industries issued by the American Apparel & Footwear Association.

For 25 years Okabashi has bucked this trend and produced a domestic product that outperforms overseas competition on design, durability and value. “While footwear fads have come and gone, Okabashi continues to offer a Made in America shoe for consumers who want quality, comfort and arch support at a reasonable price,” said Bahman Irvani, President and CEO. “We will continue to compete against imports by continuing to innovate and stay focused on our core objectives and by not compromising on the quality and durability of our shoes.”

Using a unique, proprietary Microplast® material, Okabashi designs its footbed to conform to one’s foot, supporting the toes, arch and heel at the right places, producing healing comfort and helping avoid and alleviate foot, ankle, leg and back pain. This design commitment led to an endorsement of Okabashi shoes by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) for their ability to promote correct weight distribution and posture.

“In addition to our Made in America commitment, we continually make improvements to become an environmental steward,” added Irvani. All material waste created through the production process goes back into the manufacturing cycle, creating, in effect, a “wasteless” closed loop system. Over 15 percent of Okabashi shoes are made from that recycled material.
