As soon as it starts to warm up, all of my boots go to the back of the closet and I start pulling out my flip flops and sandals. I practically live in them all summer. I have noticed that if I wear a cheaper flip flop or thong all day though that my arches and feet end up hurting at the end of the day. When introduced to Oofos Footwear, I was excited to put the technology behind their shoes to the test. Oofos are made with Oofoam and are there to support your foot. They come in a thong and slide style.
About Oofos and Oofoam from their website:
The OOFOS brand experience is powered by the cutting-edge proprietary material called OOfoam. Our technology is a combination of compound and our patented footbed design. Our unique DNA provides an unmatched OOfeel that’s energy absorbing.
In fact, test results show OOfoam is 37% more impact absorbing than any existing EVA, the most common material found in footwear.
• Absorbs shock to lessen pain
• Reduces fatigue & restores vigor
• Delivers unparalleled cushioning to recharge & rejuvenate your feet.
The best way for me to experience a product is to use it of course! I received the Tangering Oofos Thong and they’ve been on my feet at least 4 days a week for the past 3 weeks. The moment I slipped them on my feet, I could definitely tell a difference. The thong (flip flop) is lightweight and provides support in all of the places that I need it. I’ve walked all day in these shoes and not felt the soreness or fatigue in my feet like I usually do with other thongs and flip flops.
They are very flexible and really move with your foot. Oofos footwear are machine washable which is a nice perk. The thong I received was a size 9 and while my foot is a size 9- 9 1/2, I think I would size up in the future. My pair of Oofos were a little bit small, but not small enough to need to exchange them. Womens sizing goes from 4-11 and men’s is from 7-14. They are available in 4 fun colors, and I have really loved the Tangerine color. There are
Oofos retail for around $39.95 and you can find a retailer near you here.
