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!
- 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.
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.
