Okabashi - Dishwasher Flip Flops

Have you ever heard of washing footwear in the dishwasher?  Well, that is the way you can wash Okabashi flip flops - not that I've tried it - the sink is good enough for me.  I bought my first pair last year - they are just about the best flip flop you could ever find, nothing like the flat ones that are available just about everywhere   - they have an arch support, massage beads for the insole - they are just so comfortable!  I have 3 pairs now and I love them!!  We Canadians are limited as to where we can purchase these great summer shoes - Zellers is the main distributor, Shoppers Drug Mart is also supposed to carrry them - I've never checked them out there.  I bet if you try a pair of Okabashi's, you'll be wanting to wear them all the time too!!!


  1. Hi Jill,
    I will have to check these out!

    Thank you for your visit and comment today.It is good to hear from another Islander.The Island is beautiful now as we finally are getting some sunshine and warmer temps. We had our first garden tour of the season today and the weather was perfect for it.
    Take care,

    I've seent those flip flops before in various stores, but never bought any. Amazing for me since I'm a flip flop lover!?! I just might have to get a pair and try them out.

  3. I have a form of inflammatory arthritis that effects young people (I am 32) and recently had a flare that attacked my feet. I was in a lot of pain and couldn't be on my feet for long. I googled "sandals for arthritis" and found Okabashis. I ordered 4 pairs, having never tried them before.

    They have taken away probably 95% of my foot pain.
