What does it mean to #FeelTheOO?
As an ultra runner, I am always searching for ways to make my feet happy after a long run. I believe OOFOS may be the answer… I have worn Crocks a time or two over the years, but they don’t compare to the design and comfort I feel while wearing my OOFOS.
Since being chosen as a BibRave tester, I have worn my OOFOS non-stop…to the beach, shopping, walking the dog, around the house, and after my long runs. I am amazed at their continuous comfort and support. I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, so I am always leery about trying new shoes, but I must say OOFOS passed the test. I was continuously amazed at how comfortable they were.
During BibRave’s opt-in period, I chose the Men’s OOahh Sport Slide Sandal. I’m more of a flip flop guy, and never considered owning a pair of sandals, so this gave me an opportunity to test out some free sandals. The instant I slipped them on, I was surprised at their comfort. I spent the day walking around the house with them and eventually made my way to the pool. They were incredibly comfortable and it felt like I was walking on clouds. However, I did notice after a couple of hours the upper part of the sandal was a bit tight fitting. I don’t have high arches or extremely large feet, so I attributed the tightness to something I had to break in.
When I spoke to Erin, BibRave Community Manager, and told her about how the OOFOS sandals felt, she inquired with the company and before I knew it, I had pair of Men’s OOriginal Sport Sandal at my doorstep. Boom! My feet (top and bottoms) were in heaven!
I can attest that OOFOS are made of quality materials, especially after logging several miles walking the dog. They provided optimal traction on the road, beach, around the pool, and just walking around the yard. Their proprietary OOfoam provides support with more cushioning to increase blood flow and stimulate muscles. The material will hold its shape and form for a long time.
Because of their continuous comfort, I no longer walk barefoot around the house – I find myself gravitating to my OOFOS instead. I look forward to owning future pairs of OOFOS! In fact, I have added a spot on my race checklist for my OOFOS! They will come in handy over my next two events: 12 hr. endurance run and the Yeti100.

Comments from other runners:
“I have plantar fasciitis and highly recommend new shoes for people that have the same condition they are very comfortable especially in the morning”
“This sandal feels more supportive than most of my running shoes. I recently injured my knee running and am in physical therapy to get back to my top shape. This sandal feels so good, is so supportive and so strong. I walk better, my knee feels better and I can’t wait to start running again!”
“These look great, slip them on for a bbq or after a workout.”
