travel essential: OKA b. ballet flats

Finding the perfect shoe to travel in isn’t always easy. They need to be comfortable (natch!), stylish and versatile. And a shoe that slips on and off easily is also a prerequisite for me. Since removing your shoes is an imperative when you’re going through security, I hate holding up the line, fighting with laces, buckles and zippers.

I love these simple, stylish ballet flats from OKA b. I have the ‘Taylor’ model in camel (although they do have a model named ‘Natalie’; maybe I should have gotten those!) and they’re one of the best shoes I’ve found to travel in. These shoes are flexible and oh-so-comfortable, probably because they feature an ergonomic footbed enhanced with massage beads, which cushion your feet as you walk. They’re easy to slip in and out of easy to clean – you can easily wipe them clean when you’re in a hurry, but can you believe they’re machine washable as well?

Available in a variety of styles and colours like Licorice, Cranberry, Hot Chocolate, Jade, Popsicle Pink, Fuchsia, Camel and Cherry, and priced at just $45, they’re your perfect travel companion. And … they come packaged in a delightful gift box, making them that much sweeter! For more information, visit

What’s your favourite shoe to travel in?



  1. Reblogged this on so where did you get that.

  2. Wow, those are cute! Is there somewhere in Toronto where they are available?

    • Hi Julia – I haven’t found them anywhere in Toronto but I did just order two more pairs online from and the shipping was inexpensive. I now have three pairs but they’re so comfy and I wanted to stock up just in case they ever discontinue the model that I like! The ones I have are just $45 a pair and if you register on their site, they also let you know when they have sales. I definitely recommend them!

  3. Thank you for steering me to these! I’ve been searching and searching for a great travel flat. So many are soooo UGLY! looked at crocs but these are much more elegant. I’m starting with Dove, but I want to collect them all. They’re delivered today and I’m so excited!
