Events: Sneak Peak at Oka-B
That's what I asked when I was invited to the 2015 Fall Collection Preview this summer.
When I walked into their headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia for the party, I was immediately hit with nostalgia from my childhood.
"Jelly shoes!" I screamed internally!But these jellies weren't for kids. They were grown-ups!
|These navy jelly wedges were debut in the 2015 fall collection, and I got to take them home as a gift!|
The style is called "Emery peep-toe wedge" and comes in 10 colors.
Oka-B say they were founded on the principle that fashion and comfort should never be mutually exclusive.
The company started in 2005 with two basic styles, a slide and a thong. They designed the shoe to feel like a spa shoe by integrating principles of reflexology and ergonomics.
The shoes are waterproof, washable and recyclable.
They're also made in the USA - in Buford Georgia.
|The Emery wedge starts at $56 dollars. These shoes can also be adorned = accessorized for a few bucks extra.|
Check out my video of the party:
I tried the shoes for a night out. The idea of them are fantastic, especially for a work shoe. But I found the body a bit too "jelly" - too soft, so I never had a comfortable walk. My feet felt unsupported. They felt awkward. They were not comfortable for me and they made a squeaking noise when I walked.
Soooo...I gave them to my sister. They are pretty shoes, indeed. But alas, she reported similar issues. So, I can't recommend the Emery wedge, but I certainly will give one of their flats or sandals a try!
Got a tip? Let us know and we'll post it here!
