I wore some cute, yet noncomfy shoes the other week, and my body has been paying for it. When the plantar tendon acts up it hurts to walk. Which makes me walk on the outside of my foot. When I do that my calf hurts. Then my thigh hurts. Then my butt hurts. Seriously. I get full body pain.
So in my quest for adorable flip flop purchasing I ran across Okabashi Shoes. They fit the cute aspect and I contacted the company and they gave me a pair to try out! You know what else is awesome. They actually HELP with plantar fasciitis! These sandals help with the proper alignment and help to prevent pronation! Read their fact sheet to learn more!
I was sent the Maui in Jade. I read reviews and read that they ran a tad bit small. I got the largest they offered. I typically wear a 10.5 or 11, so I was a bit scared they wouldn't fit. They fit just right. If I could, I would have gone a size bigger, but they are definitely not uncomfortable and I have been wearing them like crazy since I got them. I get compliments daily.
Here are a few key points from the site for this particular style:
- Good for You: Massaging Insole, Ergonomic Foot-bed, Superior Arch Support
- Good for the Environment: Made in the USA, 100% Recyclable
- Good for your Pocket: Guaranteed for 2 years
- Signature Microplast Material: contains Anti-Microbial Agent, Anti-Slip, Anti-Odor, Vegan-Friendly, Latex-Free
- BPA Free
- Durable: Waterproof, Dishwasher safe
- 1" heel
- Less pronounced arch support
- Wider foot bed
Definitely hammock worthy. Perfect for a nice relaxing day.
