Lou (OOFOS Founder and my training buddy) at the finish of PMC Day 2!
I have made it through Y2 (year 2) of my new adventure - living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. I continue to reflect on the positive, priceless experiences that have been created through my adventure of living with MBC. Shortly after my diagnosis, I began making sure I take pictures to ensure I capture these experiences (If you are reading this you may wish I didn't get so excited about taking photos, as there a LOT of them)!
Reflecting on the past year, it is safe to say that OOFOS thrived in 2016, and it’s all thanks to our loyal fans and customers. We have received dozens and dozens of amazing reviews from mommy bloggers, runners, athletes and even the LA Rams who we partnered with for their 2016-17 season! We love hearing back from our customers and are so proud to have been able to provide recovery for so many people this past year.
As 2016 is coming to an end, we are so excited to say that we have been listed in Outdoor Gear TV’s Gear of the Year list. This short list consists of the products that Outdoor Gear TV continued to wear long past their initial review and stood out over the competition. When mentioning OOFOS in this list, they say,
“Play hard and then recover well. Whether you battle plantar fasciitis or just have tired feet from an epic weekend adventure, these will be your new best friend. We used them as a recovery sandal after long runs and hikes, and just lounging around the house all summer—our feet have never been happier.”
This mention is such an honor and we couldn’t be happier to know that Outdoor Gear TV continued to love our product, even after their initial review. To see the full Gear of the Year list, click here.
Thank you not only to all those who have taken the time to review us in 2016, but also to all of our customers and fans! We wouldn’t be where we are today without you. Let’s make 2017 even better!
With the holidays filling everyone’s schedule with shopping trips, cleaning and other various “to-do’s,” it’s great to see one of the latest articles from New York Lifestyles Magazine talk about how to treat yourself during the holiday season! While it’s great to treat all your loved ones, sometimes you just need to indulge for yourself and relax. In this article, writer Griffin Miller says that OOFOS are a must for a great day of R&R!
“When I first tried on a pair of OOFOS sandals (flip-flop style), I had no idea they were designed with recovery technology for runners. I just knew they were the most comfortable sandals I’d ever worn... and after nearly a year of wearing them, I can also say they’re the sturdiest as well.”
Sure our recovery technology is great for runners, but it’s also great for anyone who needs a little relaxation from being on their feet and we’re glad Griffin recognized that! Check out the full article here.

We are so thrilled to be a part of so many gift guides this holiday season, and we couldn’t agree more that OOFOS are perfect for those runners in your life or those people who simply need recovery. The latest gift guide mention from Men’s Journal considers OOFOS to be great for both types of people! OOFOS was chosen as one of the 17 best gifts for runners! The review says,
“There’s nothing like coming back from a Sunday long-run and sliding into a pair of OOFOS recovery sandals.”
We are so honored to receive this mention from Men’s Journal and be a part of such an exclusive list of gifts. To see the full review, click here. Still need to order your OOFOS gifts? Click here to check out our lineup and get your pair today!
Blogger for Mom to Grandma handed off a pair of men’s OOFOS OOriginal Sports to her oldest son who struggles with leg, knee and feet problems due to minor Cerebral Palsy. When he first received them from his mother, he was a bit skeptical, as sandals and flip-flops have never been an option for him because they make his pain worse. When he slipped his feet into the OOFOS, however, he was pleasantly surprised. The blog says,
“So, to his surprise he noticed a big difference at the end of each day he wore them. He tells me the footwear is lightweight and his feet stay comfortable all day. Where he'd be in a great deal of pain after wearing other flip flops or sandal's all day, his feet, knees legs and back are tolerating these shoes nicely.”
We love being able to help those who struggle with leg pain and are proud to continue surprising people with our sandals. If you have don’t usually wear sandals or flip-flops due to the fact that they don’t provide you with the support, give OOFOS a try! To read the full blog review, click here.
