ATLANTA, February 18, 2009 – Okabashi Brands, Inc., a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer celebrating 25 years of making casual and comfortable shoes, today announced its new Women’s Splash and Men’s Surf flip flops.

The Women’s Splash combines a comfortable foot bed with a fashion-forward 1.75-inch curved heel, featuring the same arch support and massage beads as Okabashi’s classic Flip Flop. Okabashi Splash comes in four fun colors – black, brown, white and chartreuse.
