In this Goat Codes Spotlight, we look at Oofos, super-comfortable recovery shoes and sandals…
What are Oofos?
Oofos make shoes and sandals designed to aid recovery from running and other sporting activities.
They fulfil the need for footwear that can help fitness enthusiasts recover from repeated workouts on hard surfaces. As they explain, “Stores are filled with athletic shoes designed to offer rebound and energy return — shoes that spring you forward when you’re exercising. What was missing was a material that could do the opposite: actually absorb shock after a workout.”
They developed that material – known as Oofoam – and have made it available in a wide range of shoes and sandals that have a biomechanically engineered anatomically shaped footbed.
The result is a seriously comfortable experience for your feet.
What is Oofoam?
The magic ingredient in every pair of Oofos is Oofoam. This material:
- Absorbs 37% more shock than traditional foams;
- Reduces stress on sore feet, knees and back;
- Cradles your arches;
- Enables more natural motion;
- And is so light that they float!
What styles are there?
There’s a pair of Oofos for everyone, with a range of styles and colours.
They offer flip flops and sliders for those who want to slip their feet right in – including designs with an adjustable strap for extra comfort.
If you’re after something a little more enclosing, then the clogs might be for you.
For a full-foot hug, check out the shoes.
If you’re a woman, or have smaller feet, there’s even two styles of boot to choose from.
Why do we love Oofos?
The Lonely Goat HQ team have been trying out the Oofos range and have been amazed at how comfortable they are. They’re like no other shoe we’ve tried and we think they’re great for everyday use, not just after a run.
Instead of having to grip with your toes, like in a normal pair of flip flops, the anatomically shaped footbed holds your feet and allows the plantar fascia to remain relaxed.
The Oofoam material is so cushioning, it’s as though Oofos have invented it by crossing a marshmallow with a cloud.
They’re so comfortable – and your feet feel so nice after wearing them – that you may find yourself wondering how you lived without them.
