a healthier dress shoe

Thoughtfully designed for the active professional

At OAKA we redesigned the dress shoe from the ground up fixing all of the things we hated in order to improve health, mobility, and comfort.

Faux Heel

We developed a shoe mold that gives the typical dress shoe look from the outside but in fact is actually a faux heel derived from special cut outs allowing your foot to stay flat to the ground.

Zero Drop

OAKAs have a zero drop inner sole allowing you to walk as if barefoot rather than with an unhealthy heel.

Old school dress shoes just seem so...old now. OAKAs for life.

My OAKAs are a game changer for traveling. No more squished dress shoes taking up too much space.

The best looking barefoot dress shoes I've ever seen and I've tried them all.

Flexible

The whole shoe is soft and flexible for comfort and foot mobility. It's easily become our favorite travel shoe.

We're not hippies but we'll pay for good karma ;)

The upper is made from flyknit fibers that help reduce production waste compared to more traditional cut & sew manufacturing processes.

Mobility

We also made OAKAs anti-slip through a hidden open tread outer sole and a slip on, mostly because laces are annoying, but also for speed. Oh and they're machine washable making them ready for any adventure.

Explore. Adapt. Rise.

Born out of need, OAKA represents to us a changing of the guard welcoming in a new kind of professional.
