Earlier this summer I declared I have a new favorite flip-flop–one that got a thumbs up from a podiatrist and is even endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association. Now that the summer is half over (nooo!), I can report that I still haven’t gotten a blister (even in the midst of a disgusting heatwave), I still haven’t felt any soreness in my arches or heels, I still haven’t almost walked out of my flip flops, and I still haven’t slipped while wearing them. And they still look brand new–and I’ve worn them every single day. This won’t be news to lots of you, based on the enthusiastic comments you posted when I originally wrote about them.
Okabashi tells me that they’re having a big Christmas in July event on Monday, July 25 where you can buy one dozen pairs for $100. This means you can save anywhere from $4 to $9 per pair (the most expensive style is $17.99). I’ve already gotten my mom, sisters, and friends on board to go in on the dozen with me, and Monday I’ll be placing my order. The sale begins at 12am and ends at 11:59pm, and includes every style in every color.
According to Okabashi, their flip-flops are:
• 100% recyclable and contains up to 30% recycled material
• Supportive with a massaging insole that helps relieve foot and back pain.
• Guaranteed for 2 years
• Made in the USA
• Dishwasher-safe and machine washable
• Antimicrobial agents and odor resistant
• Completely water proof (will not change shape or fade)
• The only shoe endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association
If you’re interested, you might want to gather up your fellow buyers this weekend. Unless you want to stock up on your own collection to last you a decade or so!
