Florida Travel Guide: OKA-b shoes perfect for traveling

What girl doesn’t like a cute pair of shoes? Maybe girls with wide feet since those of us searching for D-width shoes don’t always have the cutest pool to draw from. But that’s changed now. If you’re wondering how your wide feet will survive your travels to (and through) Florida, through airports and restaurants and shopping malls, without resorting to flip flops only, look at getting yourself a pair of oka-b  ballet flats or sandals. The flats can be purchased plain or embellished with bows, flowers and/or jewels. You can find a basic thong sandal or a thong heel. OKA-b even makes bridal shoes, perfect for a Florida beach wedding!

The verdict

These colorful little ballet flats are not only adorable to look at but they are kind to wide feet and we have been able to wear a pair of OKA-b ballet flats on a 10-hour travel day without thinking about foot discomfort once. Compliments come from all directions when you wear a pair of these shoes and while the candy-colored pairs are cute, the neutral colored flats go with everything in your travel wardrobe and your wardrobe at home.
