The technology behind OOFOS footwear is the unique OOfoam, which absorbs 37% more shock than any other material found in footwear. The patented foot-bed also offers great support, which is why OOFOS are recommended by Health Professionals such as Podiatrists and Physiotherapists.
The simplest way to describe OOFOS footwear is by saying that normally you have a very soft material with no support or a relatively hard material with support. OOFOS offers the best of both worlds as the OOfoam is extremely soft and the Patented Foot-Bed offers great support including arch support.
Our Patented Foot-Bed has a built in supportive arch and this together with the incredible cushioning of OOfoam can assist the healing process.
The OOfoam offers 37% more shock absorption than any other material being used in shoes in the marketplace today. The fact that OOFOS will absorb more of the impact when you walk will result in you feeling less pain.
This is because these shoes are very structured. Athletic shoes can be stiff as they quite often are geared for stability. Orthotics are designed to do the same thing. OOFOS shoes are about the "feel" and helping your feet and you to feel better!
Our patented foot-bed design offers a lot of support and the OOfoam provides 37% more shock absorption than any other materials found in footwear. This translates to giving the feet and your body relief from the effects of weight bearing and thus helps the wearer recover from the physical demands of their activity, whether it be from sports, working or being on their feet all day.
It's best to ask your feet. We promise they will let you know!
In our experience, we see some wear on the bottom over time with normal wear; however, the foot-bed maintains the shape and cushion feel for a very long time.
Once you try on a pair of OOFOS you will know the answer straight away. Our material is unique and exclusive to OOFOS as we are the only brand of footwear to use OOfoam. The patented foot-bed design and the OOfoam are what make OOFOS different and distinguish us from all other brands. Another wonderful feature of our shoes is that on wet surfaces, our shoes have a fantastic grip, so they are great around pools and/or on boats.
The OOfoam also provides 37% more shock absorption than other materials used in shoes in the marketplace today. Doctors have not previously seen what we are offering, so we understand why they say this. One of our missions here at OOFOS is to change that and we are! We have many podiatrists recommending our shoes to their patients and the list is growing in all medical communities and allied health fields (Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Massage Therapists etc.).
Please avoid using hot glue and strong toxic glues as these may melt the OOfoam and ruin your OOFOS.
