Disclaimer: I received a pair of Ooofos Ooriginal Sport Sandals to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!
I was SOOO thrilled to get the opportunity to review these sandals. Having a great pair of recovery sandals is very important as a runner. You can’t just throw on a pair of cheap flip flops and expect your feet to be happy. Just like you invest in your running shoes, you need to invest in your recovery shoes, or sandals.
Oofos are like clouds for your feet the moment you slide them on. The OOfoam technology absorbs 37% more shock than other materials out there. They are extremely durable, the OOfoam holds its cushion wear after wear. The sandal reduces stress on sore feet, knees and lower back, and it cradles your arches. Oofos footbed is biomechanically designed to allow your feet natural motion. They are so soft and can take you post-run and are great beach wear. You don’t have to worry about them getting wet, as the sandals are moisture resistant and won’t retain any funky smells.
When I’m not wearing my running or workout shoes, these have become my go-to footwear. They are supportive and you feel incredibly light as you walk around in them. Honestly, they are like heaven for your feet. Your tired soles will thank you for recovering in Oofos. My Oofos come with me on every long run, and immediately after, I swap out my running shoes for my Oofos.
What makes Oofos so amazing is the OOfoam technology that absorbs impact thereby taking pressure off of your joints. Runners and other endurance athletes greatly benefit from this during the recovery process, allowing your body to recharge itself and reinvigorate itself. The sandals can even help if you suffer from plantar fasicitis or other issues like bunions and neuromas.
The bottom line is, if you are a runner, cyclist, fitness lover, or really ANYONE, you need these sandals. From the moment you put them on, you won’t want to use those old flip flops you find yourself going to all the time. Ooofos will become the sandal you want on your feet going forward.
Oh, and right now, if you want the same style of Oofos I’m reviewing here, they have an awesome limited edition Rio Olympics edition sandal. Let me tell you, I am in LOVE with it. The colors are so beautiful, and I’m a huge Team USA fan! So, get in on those if you love them too!
