*Disclaimer: I received a free pair of OOFOS footwear to review as part of being a Bibrave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out Bibrave.com to review find and write race reviews!
“Your Feet Earned This!” – That’s the motto from OOFOS footwear. These little babies are not like any other type of footwear you’ve tried in the past. These will literally change your life.
At first glance they look like foam-platform sandals. Then, you put them on your feet and the magic happens. It immediately feels like you are walking on clouds. On. Clouds. For real. So what exactly are these magical cloud sandals? Well here are some quick facts:
- They absorb more shock than other foam footwear
- They reduce stress on knees and back
- Extra arch support to relieve pressure from hips, knees, and ankles
- Soft and flexible so your foot keeps a natural stride
- The OOfoam cushion lasts the life of the sandal
- Machine washable and safe for showers
- Super light – they even float!

When I first received the OOFOS sandals, I thought they would be great for recovery after long runs…especially while training for the upcoming Hot Chocolate 15k.
But then I realized that I never wanted to take them off! I wore them all around the house and they were great for folding laundry and doing the dishes!
I have high arches and occasionally experience lower back pain, so slipping these sandals on felt like a dream! They especially saved me after a grueling hike up to Potato Chip Rock (Elevation: 1800-2000 ft.)
I don’t think my back and hips would have recovered as quickly without the OOFOS! They were even light enough to throw in a bag for a little relaxation time to soak up some vitamin sea. 😉
It doesn’t get better than beach time with some OOFOS! Clouds! Really…Clouds!
I also took them along on a trip. They were perfect for foot recovery after a long day of sight-seeing (almost 6 miles to be exact).
As a bonus, I liked having comfy sandals to protect my feet from questionable hotel carpet. 😉
As you can see I’m wearing a pink pair of OOFOS with a ribbon. That’s because they are from the Project Pink line. For every pair sold, $10 will be donated to Dana Farber Breast Cancer research. How amazing is that?! You can make an impact on the world while reducing the impact on your feet. 😉 Check out the Project Pink collection here. And don’t worry guys, there are plenty of options for men too!
Pricing ranges from about $45-$65 with free shipping/returns and they are also available in select countries. There is also a 6 month warranty.
So if you are experiencing any foot issues such as plantar fasciitis, hammer toes, bunions…then I highly recommend giving the OOFOS a shot! Or if you just want to experience the feeling of walking around on clouds, then order a pair and see for yourself.
#FeeltheOO and your feet will thank you!
