Summer Sandals You Can Clean in the Dishwasher

You won't have to worry about stinky flip flops this summer if you order yourself some Oka-Bs and have a dishwasher. Oka-B flips and slides are made from Microplast, a kind of anti-microbial PVC that you can hose clean or toss in the dishwasher for a low labor scrub with a clean, lemon-fresh scent. Whether the normal wash is sufficient or the pots and pans cycle is required really depends on your feet. Either way, do yourself a favor, make sure that your girlfriend/wife/mother doesn't see you squeeze them in between the tupperware.

Each pair of Oka-B's is at least 20 percent recycled, and fully recyclable. Send 'em back to the company when you're done, and they'll grind them up to make industrial mats.

Made in the USA with arch support; a footbed that massages when you walk; and a supportive, sculpted heel. Available now, $25 for men's styles,
