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

For Barefoot Enthusiasts

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.  We purposely made our shoe's toe box slightly wider than the average traditional dress shoe but not overly so as to keep a more professional silhouette.

For Frequent Travelers

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.

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.  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.

Soft, Breathable Fibers

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.

Slip On

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.
