It’s summer time, so that means one thing for me: shoes have gone into hibernation and it’s time for flip flops. I know I am not the only one who absolutely loves the freeing feeling of toes in the wind. So when a pair of Oofos Sandals found their way to me, I was beyond excited. My previous summer sandals had been worn for the last 8+ seasons and I knew they didn’t have much more time left, so these came at the perfect time.
The sandals I have, are the Men’s OOriginal Sport Sandal. There is no way to describe the comfort I felt in these sandals. I believe Oofos designed these to be worn after sports activities to provide comfort. However that is not their only use for me. Besides wearing these for comfort after a run, I have also put close to 100 walking miles on them in the month I’ve had them!
I wear them as much as I do because I can’t get away from how much comfort they provide. The sole of the sandal is like no other sandal I have felt before. My feet are so comfortable in these things. That’s the best way to describe them in laymen’s terms. Here is a video to explain what I am experiencing in a more scientific way:
Cool video right? Explains my increased comfort level.
Not only were these sandals comfortable to walk around in, they also held up during exercise! One night during a hotel stay I wanted to get a quick workout in. However I forgot my shoes were not with me. So I hopped on an elliptical in my Oofos and went to town for almost an hour. And they held up great! There was no slipping, no falling and no issues at all. The sandals held to my foot tight just as good as any shoe would have done. So not only are they beyond comfortable, but they are exceptionally functional as well.
It’s clear based on everything I have said so far that overall I feel these sandals are amazing. Not only do they provide you with excellent comfort after a long run, but they are perfect for just strolling around town in. And the best part is you don’t have to just buy the sports sandals if you don’t want to. If you go to their website you will see many other options. Here are just a few:
So please do yourself a favor and get a pair of Oofos now. Even in states like mine (Pennsylvania) that get bad weather, you still will have a majority of the year where it becomes sandal season. Or what about after that long run when your feet are sore and need comfort? Don’t you want your feet to feel as good as possible? If your answer is yes, start shopping now!
