I love my shoes…like any runner does. And I find that I wear my running shoes even when I am not running. They are comfortable and fresh feeling!
But running shoes aren’t intended for “everyday” wear. They are intended to give you spring in your step and log those long miles! So what is a girl to do?
Well, I have owned a couple pair of OOFOS over the years and these shoes are the perfect choice for post-run, everyday wear. In fact, with the most recent pair I received as a BibRave Pro, I didn’t realize how old my previous pair is! Let’s chat!
As a relatively young company, OOFOS has made a strong name for themselves as the leader in the recovery footwear realm. After some major testing and manufacturing, OOFOS created a material to help absorb impact of your footsteps and help fitness enthusiasts recover from their workouts.
With recovery in mind, the scientists at OOFOS created the OOfoam technology. OOfoam is the revolutionary foot-bed material used in all of OOFOS recovery footwear and it absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear foam. In fact, the closed cell foam helps minimize odor, is machine washable, and floats in water!
Since it is Friday, let’s go over the top 5 reasons you need to #feeltheOO with OOFOS footwear.

recovery is key
As a long distance runner, taking recovery seriously is a game changer. While I don’t take many days off from running, you can be sure to find me wearing OOFOS everyday. The OOfoam has been scientifically proven to reduce stress on your body while you are on the move.
Overall, the team at OOFOS has come up with some pretty fabulous colors!
As a BibRave Pro, I noticed the new orange OOlala on Twitter a few weeks ago and tagged the BibRave team to alert them to the beautiful new orange color – hello, it was meant to be!
Since receiving my new OOFOS OOlala, I noticed how much better the new sandal feel compared to the older sandal I have had for years…
While the foam on my older sandal has compressed a little, they still feel great! Which makes the new ones feel AMAZING!
wear anytime / anywhere
The comfort of OOfoam is perfect to wear everywhere. I have been wearing them at work and on the go!
Little man and I even went on a trail adventure and I was sure to wear my OOFOS – also so I wouldn’t be tempted to run 🙂
Since you are wearing your new OOFOS everywhere, they are likely to get a little dirty… The plus is that they are completely machine washable! No need to worry about being delicate with them through the washer – but keep them out of the dryer…
Not every company has a bigger story attached to their timeline…
A member of the OOFOS family was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and her OOFOS family wanted to help. The OOFOS team decided to set a goal to donate $100,000 to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (the leading cancer care center) to help find a cure for the millions of women affected by breast cancer.
In part, OOFOS donates 3% of every pair sold of shoes sold on OOFOS.com to Project Pink – as well as $10 from each pair of the Project Pink collection sold. So by purchasing your OOFOS online, you are not only supporting your personal recovery – but you are helping contribute to a much bigger cause ♥
friends let friends feel the OOO
I have a runner friend that has been dealing with a bout of PF (basically a strong cuss word in the running world). I happened to have a pair of OOFOS with me and let her give them a try – and now she is a proud OOFOS owner!
“I tried on my good friend Lindsey’s OOFOS because I was having issues with plantar fasciitis and I had heard they were the best footwear when battling this stupid injury. Even though she wears a different size, I could immediately feel how amazing the support was and how comfortable they were. I had to go get a pair as soon as we got back into town from our local running store. Now, other than when I am at work in my lab, my OOFOS are on my feet and I just LOVE them! I honestly wish I had pulled the plug earlier and bought a pair a long time ago! I am for sure an OOFAN for life!”
