OOfos — Feel The Oo!

Disclaimer: I received a pair of OOFOS 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! All opinions are my own. 

In the spring of 2016, I suffered from a bout of plantar fasciitis with some added morning heel pain.  It was a very hard year to get through, with 9 races scheduled.  I remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Seattle being a very painful race to finish.  I stood in the corrals for about an hour before I crossed the start line and I was already sweating bullets from the pain in my feet.

After months of Arnica therapy (thanks Rob!) and heat and ice treatment on my feet and Achilles, I got the PF under control.  However, I still suffered a bit from heel pain first thing in the morning.  Enter OOFOS recovery sandal!  Admittedly, I felt the oo the minute I slipped these on.  Heaven sent, and I’m not kidding.  I then put them on first thing the next morning, and holy wow!  No heel pain whatsoever!

Feeling the OO after a Seahawks pedicure!


  • OOfoam absorbs more shock than traditional foam.
  • Patented footbed.  Reduces stress on sore feet, knees and back.
  • Cradles your arches.
  • Biomechanically designed, they enable your foot to move the way nature intended.
  • They bloody well feel great!

Also, with every Project Pink shoe that is sold, $10 will go to breast cancer research.

Final Thoughts

I love this shoe.  My feet feel fantastic after wearing them for a couple of weeks, and they’re especially amazing after a workout.  They’ve passed the rain test… no slipping or sliding.  I now wear two types of shoes… my trainers and my OOFOS.  I feel everyone, runner or not, would benefit from wearing these sandals.  And that is my honest personal opinion.

Still in doubt?  Go check out these reviews from my BRP friends.  If I haven’t convinced you, they just might!  Mai; Meredith; Jenna; Vanessa; Laura; Emily.

    Ohh thanks for this share as I suffer from PF too. I do stretches but is is a real problem when getting up. I must see if this has been imported into lil red dot yet! I currently use sports shoes and black Sketchers for work. This way I can walk without too much pain. I know the feeling! Cheers and have a great week ahead Paula and thanks again 😀

    these sound awesome!! I too suffer from PF and morning heel pain. I am on hardwood floors all day at work – I might have to get a pair so that I can wear them while I’m working!

        Do they fit true to size Paula? Like I’m normally a 9.5-10 which is awkward for buying shoes haha. I’m seriously looking into them right now! 😉

      Arnica is an herb. It’s made into a gel which you rub into the skin that treats bruising and inflammation. It’s a homeopathic remedy… so yes, use it daily or twice a day.
