I went to the preview of the Spring Summer Collection of Oka B
It was a pleasure to meet Jackie Barnett – Director of International Sales at Oka-B
Launched in 2005, Oka-B was 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.
Each pair of Oka-B shoes is made to order and assembled by hand at our factory in the USA. Our onsite manufacturing in Atlanta, Georgia allows for unmatched quality control and attention to detail.
Oka-B shoes are lightweight, flexible, durable, and environmentally friendly as each pair contains up to 25% recycled content. They are ergonomically engineered with enhanced massage beads to be slip-resistant, non-marking and provide stability on both wet and dry terrain making them perfect for use in any setting. The non-absorbent material has anti-microbial properties that resist the growth of bacteria, odor, mildew allowing them to be machine washable and easy to sanitize.
What makes Oka-B shoes unique season after season is the company’s signature ergonomic footbed with reflexology inspired massage beads. All waterproof, antibacterial and seamlessly designed and molded into one pieceusing their proprietary recyclable Microplast™ material. All Oka-B products are eco-friendly and manufactured in a low-waste factory, just outside of Atlanta, Georgia USA.

Our wide product portfolio allows us to reach varying female demographics with our incredible range of footbed options. From a simple sandal to an elegant slide to adorned wedges and ballerina flats, we understand the varying needs of the individual consumer and try to tailor our comfort and style options to fit all areas of one’s lifestyle.
Spring Summer is the season of renewal and no one is prepared to jump in feet first more than Atlanta based Oka-B Footwear. Introducing Spring Summer 2015 Collection that is as vibrant as it is charming, Oka-B’s newest offerings, including the T-strap sandal named The Carson, capitalize on a brighter season for all. “The Carson is an obvious addition to Oka-B’s already vast collection,” says Naomi Wakatake, Creative Director. “We researched the top trending designs and adornment compilations to assemble one of our best style contributions yet.”
Inspired by the freshness and floral accents of springtime, Oka-B has introduced 7 brand new colors such as Lilac, Mint, Watermelon, Poppy, Crème, Latte, and Mist. The wide range of new colors and styles ensure a perfect match for everyone for any occasion, such as the preppy Georgina with color matching bows or sophisticated Sloane with its shiny gemstone strand. The playful Nelly is stacked with overlaying enamel triangles that is sure to please the most daring female fashionista.
