This has been the summer of running around! I have had my traditional flip flops on nearly every day so far this summer and my feet hurt! I do love my flip flops but I needed something that was a bit more sturdy, yet could hold up on the pool deck. I learned from experience not to wear leather or fabric flip flops anywhere near chlorine as it does stain. I was so excited to receive two pairs of oofos to test out.Â Yes, the name sounds funny and they look a bit different but THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE! Obviously I don’t literally run in my flip flops but these line of sandals, flip flops and clogs are called recovery footwear so if you are a busy mom and have been going non stop in your flip flops give these a try! They are also super easy to clean too so if your kids are looking for a solid pair of slides or flip flops to put on after their sports these will be the ones they will want as they are so cushy.
OOFOS are very lightweight, easy to clean and the designers of OOFOS created them to provide impact absorption and arch support that you don’t normally see in flip-flops. While they are great for a busy mom to run around in they are perfect for my two girls to put on after a day of swimming, soccer and dive. OOFOS also helps to reduce strain on feet, knees and back and absorbs more shock.Â Plus a bonus for us moms when the weather gets cold you can switch to the OOFOS clogs with the same OOFOS benefits.Â
The OOFOS line was originally created for fitness enthusiasts to recover from repeated workouts on hard surfaces and they absorb shock after a workout. If you are a mom wearing traditional flip flops and have felt pain in your foot give these a try as they will certainly take pressure off your joints. Check out the Q&A on their site here.
Disclosure: The company sent me a couple pairs of OOFOS to test out. All opinions in this blog post are my own.
