Buford Footwear Business Still "Flipping" 30 Years Later

Posted: Updated:
BUFORD, Ga. -

Summer is the season of flip-flops -- which is just fine for a family-owned Buford business.

Opened in 1984, Okabashi Brands is the only injection-molded footwear manufacturer in the United States, and is renowned for being an eco-friendly company. The wide variety of shoes -- including flip-flops -- are 100% recyclable, anti-microbial, and dishwasher safe! More than that, they're Made In The USA -- specifically, at the company's Buford plant.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken got to take a tour of the Okabashi plant to see just how they keep up with the summer flip-flop demand! Click the videos above to check it out!
