What: Okabashi, which specializes in comfortable, everyday, “grandma” shoes, has announced new, ultra-comfy and ultra-cheap flip flops for men and women. Look, if Hush Puppies can become stylish, why can’t these shoes?

What They Say:

“The new 2009 Okabashi Splash and Surf flip flops feature a new, curved heel for fashion and summer fun versatility – accenting everything from beach wear to casual wear – while retaining the uncompromising comfort, support and a massaging feel that customers expect from Okabashi.”

What We Say: Some of us live in flip flops all summer, and even try to get away with wearing them in the winter, so it’s important that a) they feel good and b) they last a long time, or go for real cheap so we can buy lots of them. At $14.99, these Okabashi flip flops may just cover all fronts. Plus, what other flip-flop brand offers a two year warranty.

Have you donned Okabashi shoes before? If so, what’s the verdict?

    i would totally look into getting a pair.  the price seems reasonable for “orthopedic” sandals.  besides, the cheap ones i buy from old navy only last me until the end of the summer.  these look like they seem to last a while.

    I’ve had many pairs of these shoes, I love them.  Two of the pairs I had ripped, and I sent them back and they were replaced with a brand new pair of shoes I received in the mail.  I don’t know why they ripped, but both of them were black rubber, and they both ripped in the same spot.

    I just got a pair of the Okabashi flip flops and tried them on. They are VERY heavy, the toe strap chafes between my toes, and the little rough spot in the arch is very uncomfortable. These will definitely be going to a recycling center. At least they’re recycleable.
