It didn’t take long for me to notice people slipping OOFOS on after races or after a local running group get together. I was immediately attracted to them and I wondered to myself why exactly EVERYONE seemed to have these sandals, and more importantly what was the point of them? Thanks to a quick Google search, I was lead to the Oofos Website.
OOFOS are literally designed to help you recover faster. Their advanced foam technology helps absorb more impact than your typical shoes would, thus the feeling of “walking on clouds.” This, of course, reduces stress and overall tension on your feet. They have a variety of styles and colors available to appeal to multiple audiences. This particular pair I was able to try out was the OOahh Sport Project Pink Recovery Sandals.
For lack of a better summary, these sandals are simply amazing. I found myself looking forward to slipping them on after hard runs and didn’t want to take them off until I literally crawled into bed. I quickly had to hide them from my boyfriend who became a quick fan as well 🙂 I love this slip-on style and found it easier to get in and out of than the flip flop style I also own. I did notice a huge improvement with how my feet felt overall, especially after my long runs. This style was so versatile I was about to wear them out running errands, to the movies and even just around my house – they’re that comfortable.
Aside from being a five star product, there is SO MUCH more behind this specific collection that really pulled at my heart strings and immediately made me respect and appreciate OOFOS as a company even more. This pair of sandals is from the Project Pink Collection; this collection was created around increasing awareness for Breast Cancer. This cause is near and dear to the company’s heart, as a member of the Oofos family was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2014.

Along with creating the Project Pink Collection, OOFOS has made a year-round commitment to this cause. For every pair of OOFOS sold on OOFOS.com (not only from the Project Pink Collection), 3% is donated directly towards the Dana-Farber Breast Cancer Research team to support their extremely important research efforts. How awesome is that?
If you haven’t added OOFOS to your recovery tool-kit, I highly encourage you to do so! I now consider this sandal imperative to my half-marathon training and look forward to “rewarding” my feet with them after each and every tough run. OOFOS has an awesome loyalty program where you earn discounts with your purchases AND they always offer free shipping + returns with every order. Check out their website today and “Feel The Oo.”
