The Modern Dress Shoe for Active Professionals
Comfortable, Zero Drop & Travel Friendly
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.
As Featured In
We developed a unique faux heel to create a zero drop dress shoe that allows your feet to walk flat to the ground like you're barefoot. This will help correct posture and allow your feet to strengthen over time.
Travel and mobility are incredibly important to us and OAKAs ability to fold up and be flexible make them perfect for the road and the best travel dress shoe available.
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.
OAKAs have a zero drop inner sole. What that means is as you walk your feet stay flat to the ground rather than at an angle like with almost all other shoes. Most shoes, not just dress shoes, have a 8mm to 16mm height difference between the toe box and the heel making you walk at an unnatural angle and can contribute to changing your gait, poor posture, shortening the tendons, and foot pain. A zero drop sole allows you to walk more naturally and strengthen your feet over time.
The whole shoe is soft and flexible for extreme comfort. The upper is made from flyknit fibers that helps reduce production waste compared to more traditional manufacturing processes.
Laces can be necessary but are often just annoying to deal with on a constant basis, so we made the whole shoe an easy slip on.
