Our Story In 2005 we set out to create the most comfortable American made sandal. Over the years we have created hundreds of designs always with comfort and style in mind, while providing sandals and ballet flats that are recyclable, waterproof and slip-resistant. Our carefully contoured footbeds are shaped to provide wearers with superior comfort and fit. In fact, our very first sandal, Grace, was hand-sculpted out of wax when it was conceptualized, giving much thought to its effortless look. Since then we have made over 2 million pairs to order and assembled by hand.

Who We Are OKA b. is one of the most distinguished brands in the spa, resort, and boutique industries with a reputation for high quality, yet chic sandals. Carried in over 5,000 locations worldwide, our shoes have become a staple in five-star spas and resorts, as well as in premier gift shops and independent boutiques. OKA b. shoes are designed to complement every occasion, every fashion, and everybody’s feet.
