Made in the USA
In today's climate of overseas manufacturing for cheaper labor and costs, more than 98% of American-worn footwear is made abroad. Not Okabashi! We are proud to say that our entire footwear collection is Made in the USA. Okabashi employs over 200 full time and factory employees in its Buford, GA plant, providing jobs and financial growth to the local economy. Manufacturing domestically means that Okabashi shoes only travel an average of 700 miles, compared to imported shoes, which travel an average of 11,600 miles to get to US homes. This results in a huge reduction in the carbon footprint of the product - which is good for the planet.
