Consumer Review ::: OKABASHI sandals

This is really frustrating ... I wouldn't have written this, but for the 3rd time in two years, Okabashi sandals haven't lasted more than a month or two without ripping!

Need summer sandals? Head to the dollar store , and for a price of Okabahi's you can buy TEN pair! If they break who cares! You'll have another pair - keep extras in your car, at the house, at work and in your bag or pack! Oh, you won't have the arch support and massage, but those little features get costly to replace at $9.99 a month!

I used to love my Okabashi's - but something has changed! DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY?

For several years, I've bought a new pair of men's XL Okabashi sandals around Memorial Day. Most pairs I would wear for two years, and then replace 'em! HOWEVER, the last two years, they haven't lasted very long at all. A new pair I just bought this Memorial Day is already ripping:I was able to patch last year's model (which came apart in a different spot) with staples and Gorilla Glue, (they look like crap), but at least I can wear them around the yard! I only bought these because the style I regularly buy (like the ones in the picture above) were not available.
I wondered if Okabashi is using cheaper materials or manufacturing the sandals somewhere else? I went to their website. It crashed. "Unresponsive Pages" said the little graphic! I tried to call their toll-free number. It rings once and then I get a busy signal. What a shame!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
