|Comfy and stylish!
Oh my, these are so sweet on the feet!!!!
Coming off a summer spent with on/off Plantar Fasciitis, I have a renewed appreciation for TLC for my feet. I had seen several reviews of the OOFOS, and wondered if they were all they were hyped up to be.
Typically, when I finish a long race (especially if it's a hot summer day), the first thing I do as soon as I reunite with my belongings (from the bag check) is take off the running shoes and icky socks.
I inherited a discarded pair of Crocs (when the oldest daughter no longer wanted them), and those have been my post-race go-to shoes. They're comfy and airy, and feel great on tired feet after 13.1 miles. Truth be told, even though I love the funky colors, the Crocs are kind of lacking in style.

Enter the OOFOS. I received a pair of them in the mail, ironically an hour before leaving for the expo for my recent half marathon (how's that for timing!). Even though it was a chilly day, I promptly kicked off my cheetah-print flats and slid on these shoes.

They felt so good, I wore them to the expo that first day.
I have walked the dog (numerous times) in them.
|Taking Max for a spin around the block....
I prefer them to my carpet slippers. They are fantastic!

There are multiple styles (for men and women), and some are available in different colors. I was sent the OOlala style, in black. I usually wear a 9-1/2 ladies size shoe, and the size 10's of the OOFOs are great. I appreciate the tapered toe (since I have narrow feet). Granted, they are more of a casual shoe than a dressy sandal, but the tapered toe design gives them a much less "chunky" silhouette than other exercise/recovery sandals.
This is what the tag (pictured below) says about the OOFOS products:
* Created and engineered for true recovery and recharge
* Arch support for all foot types
* Lasting function and comfort
* Lightweight and flexible
* Machine washable (cold water only)
