Okabashi Brands campaign donates a pair of shoes to healthcare professionals with customer every order
Family-owned, and operated footwear company Okabashi Brands has been leading the charge in responsible, sustainable manufacturing in the USA since 1984. They have produced millions of pairs of their affordable, eco-friendly shoes that are revered for their comfort, value, and durability.
Now, the company is giving back to the healthcare community amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting today, for every order placed on their website, Okabashi Brands will donate a pair of shoes to a healthcare professional, aiming to provide a source of comfort through footwear.
For the past 36 years, Okabashi Brands has been focused on foot health, a cleaner environment, and a better economy. As the parent company to three footwear brands, Okabashi, Oka-B, and Third Oak, Okabashi Brands creates shoes for both men and women in a variety of styles that are built for comfort and wellness.
Okabashi Brand’s Buford, Georgia factory is a near-zero waste facility with materials that are plant-based and 100% recyclable. In an era where 99% of shoes are made overseas, Okabashi is a shining example of how high-quality, affordable, and eco-friendly products can be made domestically.
Okabashi Brands is now launching a Comfort for Frontline Heroes campaign to give comfort back to healthcare professionals as they work tirelessly on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting today, for every order placed on Okabashi website, Oka-B and Third Oak websites, Okabashi Brands will donate a pair of shoes, up to 10,000 pairs, to healthcare workers across hospitals and institutions nationwide.
Okabashi Brands’ shoes are created with a patented, ergonomically designed footbed and superior arch support to provide comfort and stability for those on their feet for long periods of time. Additionally, all shoes are non-slip, odour-resistant, machine washable, and water-resistant.
Okabashi Brands healthcare donation programme is live through the brand’s websites. For every order, a pair will automatically be donated, or, customers can nominate a healthcare professional by filling out the online donation form or by emailing the brand. Customers are encouraged to include a note of encouragement with their order to be attached to the donation to thank healthcare workers for their work.
