YOUR FEET WORKED HARD TODAY — and they’ll likely have another workout tomorrow. That’s why every pair of OOFOS is engineered to help your feet recover in ways that typical footwear can’t. OOFOS. Your feet earned this.
ABSORBS MORE SHOCK THAN TRADITIONAL FOAMS
Athletic shoe foams are designed to “rebound” and propel you forward. Revolutionary OOfoam does the opposite, absorbing 37% more shock with every step than traditional footwear foam.
REDUCES STRESS ON SORE FEET, KNEES AND BACK
Your feet and joints take a pounding on hard surfaces. Slipping on OOFOS after a workout provides them with relief and a chance to recover.
CRADLES YOUR ARCHES
Unlike flip-flops, the OOFOS patented footbed is designed with tremendous arch support to take the pressure off of ankles, knees and hips, as well as your lower back.
ENABLES MORE NATURAL MOTION
Biomechanically designed, OOFOS flex with both your foot and the ground. The soft, flexible OOfoam material enables your foot to articulate the way nature intended.
AND MORE ...
RECOVERY ONE STEP AT A TIME
We all know that recovery is an important part of training and working out; however the way you recover is just as important as making time to rest and recuperate.
According to Competitor the footwear you use after a run has a great impact on how quickly and efficiently one can recover.
In the hour or so following a run, your feet are in a vulnerable state. They've just spent a considerable amount of time at work, and like the rest of your body, they're tired, swollen, and could use support while recovering from their most recent effort. Unlike standard flip-flops, sandals or slides, footwear designed specifically for recovery features sturdy, supportive footbeds underneath your arch and heel that allow your fatigued feet to recuperate while you go about your day.
Recovery footwear doesn't just help your feet, however. Putting on a supportive pair of sandals or shoes after a run can have positive effects on the rest of your body too. Remember, when you are standing, your feet are the foundation that supports everything above it. If your feet are fatigued or weakened, they're not going to do a good job supporting the rest of your body. Thus, supportive recovery footwear can improve your alignment and lessen stress on the shins, knees, and hips, helping legs feel fresh for your next run.
By wearing OOFOS after a workout, the recovery process beings immediately because OOFOS allows your feet to recuperate, and in turn the rest of your body follows.
“It doesn’t matter how much I love my running shoes, the first thing I do post-race is take them off to let my tootsies breathe! I’ve been obsessed with OOFOS OOriginal from the first time I put them on… cradles weary feet and has just enough support so my arch isn’t left hanging.”
