Have you ever tried to find USA made footwear? It can definitely be a challenge. Did you know that more than 99% of American-worn footwear is made overseas? I had no idea that the number was so high. And, it’s concerning especially since the reason many manufacturers have plants overseas is to take advantage of cheaper labor. Finding things that are made in the USA is important to me. I received product for this post. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

USA Made Footwear
Okabashi has been family owned and operated in the United States for more than 30 years. Since 1984, they have set themselves apart from other major footwear manufacturers by focusing on what footwear was originally meant to be — true protection and support for your feet.
Their entire footwear collection is made in America — from start to finish. They employ more than 200 people in their Buford, Georgia factory and headquarters, providing jobs and financial growth to the local economy. I love it when I find American shoe companies.
Okabashi has a variety of men’s and women’s footwear that is eco-friendly and USA Made. Style options include flip flops, sandals, and clogs. The average pair of Okabashi sandals made this year contain 15-25% recycled material.
The Okabashi brand is 100% vegan-friendly. Their entire footwear line contains no animal skins or byproducts, and their shoes are not tested on animals. Most sandals and flip flops that contain animal by-products such as leather and adhesives are nearly impossible to recycle and end up polluting our landfills for hundreds of years.
I received the Sienna sandal from Okabashi, and I love how it feels. Massage beads and arch support in the Sienna make this slide incredibly comfortable. The massage beads are reflexology inspired and the sandal has a heel cup, arch support, and toe rest for maximum comfort. They are available in black, brown, and white.
Because the Sienna is made of a non-slip Microplast material, it is extremely versatile. I can wear it in the garden, running errands, for a walk on the beach or out for coffee with friends.
If you’re looking for USA made footwear without sacrificing comfort or style, Okabashi is the brand you need to look for.
