Right after my very first marathon in Honolulu, I wanted nothing at all a lot more than to take my operating footwear off and let my feet just loosen up. However, the flip flops I brought to slip into following the race had a really hard-bottomed sole and they hurt my feet even additional.
There was nothing at all I could do appropriate then but quickly following I found OOFOS recovery sandals.
OOFOS footwear had been designed particularly for athletes to make a rapid recovery from workouts on really hard surfaces (i.e. operating a road race). The foam technologies in their footwear absorbs the shock from walking and supplies an extremely comfy feeling–especially following a marathon!
When I was at The Operating Occasion in Austin late final year, I stopped by the OOFOS booth and found that they now have life-style footwear! This suggests I do not have to wait for the finish of a race (or, at the quite least, warm climate), to put on my OOFOS. Now I can, as they say, really feel the OO, anytime 🙂
(An fascinating side note – when I was in Portland final month, I walked into my friend’s residence and there was a pair of OOFOS sandals sitting subsequent to the door. I told her how a great deal I loved mine and then she pulled out a pair of effectively-worn OOMGs that she mentioned she wears fairly a great deal each day. So, there ya go, they’re everywhere!)
Right after discovering their life-style footwear in Austin, the people at OOFOS sent me a pair of the OOMGs to test out. They now sit subsequent to my back door and I stroll out with them on fairly a great deal each and every day–to the shop, on a stroll or when I’m headed to the health club for a swim. By the way, when I do exactly where them to the health club, I’m also packing my sandals to put on them in the pool location, in the sauna and in the shower.
Yeah, like my pal in Portland, I’m fairly a great deal addicted.
Not only are they comfy due to the fact of the soft foot bed, but I really like the reality that they are slip on. That is why they’ve turn out to be an every day shoe for me–they’re just such an effortless alternative.
But, of course, these are not just perfect for residence. They are excellent for travel as effectively due to the fact of how lightweight they are and how effectively they pack down.
The OOMGs come in a wide variety of colors which includes: Black & Black, White & Black, Black & Gray, White & Blue (pictured), White & Gray, White & Orange and White & Pink. There’s also a Black & Gray fiber version as effectively as a greater reduce version.
Note that sizes in the OOMGs have a tendency to run a tad little. I’m typically an eight.five but required a 9 in these. The sandals are a lot more correct to size.
