Local is the new black (pair of shoes)

Yes. I bought myself another pair. A black pair for upcoming fall fashion.

In my defense, I did go through the entire list of Made in USA shoe brands on The USA Love ListΒ and did a google search before I committed to a yet another pair of Oka-bs.

Made in USA “Janey” flats from Oka-b. Love.

The truth is there is just no beating the price ($45), the origin (made in Georgia, USA) and the comfort of these ballet flats!

The fact that they’ll recycle the shoes for me when (or if!) I’m ever done with them, just makes me feel so much better too.

This beautiful pair of flats are the Janey style in licorice (with grey pendant) and I am proud to say they were my one and only purchase in July. I’m rocking the 12 months – 12 items challenge.

    1. They are very comfy :) I wouldn’t go on a hike in them, but for office, dinner, shopping, they’re great!
      I am level three on your bag challenge! But like you, very few stores have bulk so I just do the best I can with what’s out there. Thanks for sharing your blog.
