These Oka-B Taylor Matte Ballet Flats are by far the most comfortable flats that I have worn for teaching. I have tried all kinds of flats, from expensive Tieks to Cole Haans. They were all too narrow, and I felt like they were squeezing the life out of my feet. They left marks on my feet, which is not a pleasant feeling! These Oka-B flats are stylish, comfortable, and even better yet, they are affordable. They cost $42 which is much more affordable than Tieks, which are anywhere from $195 to $295.
These shoes are super easy to clean, and they are made in the USA. The company is based out of Georgia. They have a variety of shoes, including flats, flip flops, sandals, slides, and wedges. Their shoes are made out of a vegan material, and they are a woman-led company. They are an environmentally conscious company. You can send your used shoes to them, and they will use the materials to make new shoes. Plus, they will send you a 15% off coupon.
Even better yet, teachers get 10% off their order. You have to scroll to the bottom of the web site and click on the Teacher Discount link. Treat your feet to some comfortable shoes this summer by clicking on the link below to get an additional $5 off!
