I have had these sandals since 2012. I wear them in the house, around the yard, in the garden, to the beach. They clean up quickly and easily with a spray of the hose or a scrub in the sink. I have not yet had any problems with the straps wearing out. I don't like the styles with the strap between the toes, and love that Okabashi has several alternatives. I also own the Wave, and find that the straps on the Messina offer better stability to keep the foot on the footbed, especially in wet conditions. It has a higher arch than the Cross-Strap that a friend ordered. Hope there is a better color selection when it comes time to eventually replace these. (In 2012 I ordered size ML which fits perfectly for me. In 2013 I ordered the Wave in L and it's too big. I normally wear 9 1/2 in sneakers.)

I ordered 5 pair of shoes. This is the only pair I was disappointed with. They are very narrow and I can not wear them long enough to see if they will relax and stretch. They are great quality for someone with a narrow foot. I will still order other products but just not this one. .

Messina is great.

By 

from eastern U.S.

I love the Messina. I wear 10.5 AAA, have a high arch and struggle to find footwear. These are narrow enough for me and have a bit of arch support. I like the style. My only complaint is that the first and especially the second straps wear fairly quickly - they develop cracks and then break. I have resorted to duct tape but it looks tacky. Otherwise, they're indestructible and I will keep buying them.

Great sandal but....

By

I'm on my 4th pair of messina and I think they give me great arch support. My only complaint is that they do not last very long. I have never had a pair that lasted 2 years, and I only wear them indoors too. But because they really seem to help my feet I keep buying them.

Nice, Best for Narrow Feet

By

These are really nice, quick slip ons when getting out of bed, etc. They are sized narrow, so order wider or larger than for your shoes. Also, they recycle materials here in USA.

Wonderful

I do have a slight narrow foot and love these sandals. I have 4 pair, both colors for good and both colors for in the garden. They are so comfortable and attractive enough to wear to work. The planter facietis has been greatly improved. I have worn a strap out on both right foot work shoes and will need to replace them after a couple years wear. Would like to see more colors as well. I also have used the Copenhagen for walking through the grass and gardening. They are good as well, but do tear out on top of foot after a couple years. I will try the Gardenia for a narrower foot. Also do like to wear them with socks in the winter when needed.

I bought a pair of Messina last summer when we were out of town. From the time I put the on I loved them.I went back to the retail store and bought another pair to be sure in case they didn't carry them this year. And sure enough they didn't. I was so glad to find your site.I tried to order four different styles but they were all too wide. So I just ordered Messina in brown. Wish you would make them in Navy color.I wear them all the time with or w/o socks,winter and summer.They are the most comfortable sandals I've found. Thank You for a wonderful product.

Uncomfortable

By

I bought four pairs of Okabashis. Two are Cross Strap, one is Daisy, and the other is Messina. I have been unable to wear Messina for more than 15 minutes. If I put them in the dishwasher in the top rack, will it make them sufficiently stretchy so that I could try to wear them right away? The Cross Straps are fantastically comfortable.

Love Them

By

I purchased a pair of these at a drug store. I have worn them for 4 years, inside, outside, etc. A tear started to develop and I drove all over trying to find them again. Did a search and am so glad for this site. I have ordered two more pair, and a couple of other styles in different colors. I absolutely LOVE them. I will say they kind of run narrow. I have a narrow foot, and they don't slide off. They stay on with no trouble. .

Best Okabashi Sandal !

By 

from Tampa, FL

Site Member

I bought this style to replace my prior Okabashi sandal that had been discontinued. I have problem feet and can't wear just anything. I need my foot to be held with something to help prevent pronation but it also has to be flexible to allow me to be agile around the house doing all my chores. I am really happy with the Messina style. It actually seems better than my old style sandal. I like everything about it.
