I have heard many runners and triathletes talk about OOFOS sandals for a while now. I’ve been really curious about them and even checked them out at a few expos. Now that I’ve had an opportunity to try them out through BibRave I can honestly say I’m on the “OO” wagon. You could even say I’m not OObsessed! 🙂 These things are like magic. I’ve had them about a month now and I’m practically living in them when I’m not wearing running shoes.
These sandals are made with the specially engineered OOfoam footbed that have made OOFOS so popular. They are soooo squishy and sooo comfy. Your feet seriously go “Ahhh” as soon as you put them on. It’s like walking on a bed of pillows. And the pillows don’t compress. They STAY FLUFFY and SQUISHY all day!
The technology behind the OOfoam allows the foam to absorb 37% more impact than traditional shoes, reducing the stress on your feet and body. This helps your joints and feet rest, relax, and recover. They also provide superior arch support and just really cradle your feet.
I keep mine by the front door and wear them heading out for errands and I throw them in my car to slip on right after a run. I’ve been dealing with a nagging heel (early plantars I’m afraid). I swear, wearing these sandals has really helped with that initial “just got out of bed”heel pain. I slip them on for a few minutes and my heel stretches out and relaxes.
I’m totally kicking myself now. Why, WHY didn’t I get a pair of these sooner?? Living in South Louisiana I can practically wear these things year round! And I’m sure I will. They come in a nice variety of colors and styles too. There are several sport slide styles as well as some clogs that would be perfect for more of a work appropriate shoe.
I highly recommend the OOFOS OOriginal Sport Sandal. Your feet deserve a little OOh-la-la and pampering. You won’t regret it.
