Malia Frey is a health, exercise, and wellness expert who teaches at colleges, universities, and wellness centers across the country and shares her knowledge online. She's also an avid runner who is training for a half-marathon! She tried out a pair of our new OOmg shoes, and had some amazing feedback:
I recently had a chance to try out Oofos' newest recover footwear, the OOmg shoe. I am not exaggerating when I say that my feet have never been so happy…. I am currently training to run a half marathon on the Great Wall of China in Beijing this May. These shoes are coming along—not only as my recovery shoe, but also as my airport shoe, my in-flight shoe, and my walk-around-as-a-tourist shoe. My feet are already smiling.
We're so happy that Malia chose OOFOS as one of the best sore feet remedies to feature on her website. When we designed the OOmg, we envisioned it as the "After Everything, Onto Anything" shoe, and it sounds like Malia's pair will live up to this idea as her go-to travel shoe in addition to her recovery shoe of choice.
The first ever OOFOS lifestyle shoe has arrived, and our fans are just as excited as we are! Loyal OOFOS wearers have been asking for a fully closed version of the recovery shoe they know and love for a long time. We heard their demands, and worked hard to meet them and now everyone's screaming "OOmg"!
Our new OOmg design features our patented footbed that is biomechanically engineered to enhance recovery, with a four-way stretch mesh upper for full coverage and added versatility.
We call it the "After Everything, Onto Anything" shoe. Slip into a pair after a tough workout or a long run to give your feet a break and take stress of your joints. Our new design is ready to take on whatever your "anything" is, whether it's dinner after the big game or a long day on your feet.
So far, we've received nothing but positive feedback! Check out what our fans are saying:
Women's sizes are available to order now. We haven't forgotten about our awesome male OOFOS fans either. It was so important to us that the male shoe is a perfect fit for all of our male fans out there so don't you worry, the men's version is coming!
We're so excited to be featured in the May issue of Women's Running! Our OOlalas are looking pretty good in this full color spread, but the best part is this amazing review from an OOFOS fan:
The Oofos Oolalas ($60, oofos.com) are the best recovery shoes ever! I can’t go back to my regular flip- flops because these are the most comfortable shoes to wear. They are completely amazing, especially after long runs and races! —Gentine Gaul Meagher on Facebook
The magazine feature highlights products that are used and loved by moms who run. These awesome women had some great recommendations, and we're honored to have made the list!

As a recovery footwear technology company, we're obsessed with improving the journey runners take to get across that finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street (and the moment right after when they slip out of their race shoes and into a pair of OOFOS to make their bodies feel better!)
Many marathoners choose OOFOS as their recovery shoes for their rigorous training routines. Our customers tell us that their OOFOS relieve soreness, aches and pains that come with distance running, and feel great on their worn-out feet both before and after a workout! Last year at our booth for the Boston Marathon expo, we heard the comments like ...
“After my long runs, my legs are sore and beat and when I put on my OOFOS they feel great. It relives the pain and my feet are much more comfortable!”
To celebrate the occasion, we created a Limited Edition shoe to celebrate the hard work and dedication of those running Boston this year. On a mission to make runners of the Boston Marathon feel better, OOFOS is offering a Limited Edition Boston Shoe available for purchase online or at our booth at the expo. If you're attending the marathon this year stop by to say hi and pick up a pair of sandals for yourself or someone who's running! We are obsessed with getting you to feel the OO. OOFOS will make yOO feel better.
You can find us at Booth 2119!
It's that time of year again -- the Boston Marathon is right around the corner! As a local company, we look forward to participating in this iconic event every year. It's such a fun race that the whole city gets involved in. Seeing as how some of us here at OOFOS are runners, we love to be a part of the crowd cheering on the runners, filling the city’s buzz with excitement, and just having a great time overall. It's a great day to get outside and enjoy everything that Boston has to offer.
We asked last year’s Boston Marathon runners what their OO moment was at the expo and here are some of the reactions…
There's nothing better than hearing stories about how our footwear has helped runners at all levels pursue their dreams and reach their goals! We're excited to have a booth at the Boston Marathon for the fifth year in a row so we can work one on one with the runners and their families to share their OOFOS' experience.
Make sure to stop by our booth for a few exciting surprises! Be sure to check back in as the marathon approaches to find out what it is! Here's a look into what's coming ...
Keeping up an exercise regime in the winter can be tough. Whether you drag yourself out of bed early in the morning to face the cold for a workout or strap on a headlamp to run in the dark after work, the chilly air, snow and slush, and lack of sunlight can make it really tough to stay motivated.
Thankfully, daylight saving time is here! Although those first few mornings of waking up are going to be rough, we'll be rewarded with an extra hour of daylight to enjoy in the afternoon. That's an extra hour of running, hiking, biking, climbing, and anything else you love to do!
As the weather warms up and you spend more time outside enjoying the sun, don't forget to change into your OOFOS after a long day of adventuring to give your feet a break and help your body recover and get ready for the next round.
What are you planning to do with your extra hour? Where will your OOFOS take you?
At www.mountainmatron.com, Social Nomad and Digital Journalist, Rozanne 'Mountain Matron' Cassone shares her experiences to empower, educate and encourage women to adventure outdoors. We asked her to field test a pair of black OOlalas on one of her long hikes, and this is what she had to say:
“…that 'OO' and 'AH' moment, is real. Hiking long miles is my thing, I enjoy it, and if given the option, I hike all day. When hiking mile after mile, my feet hurt. They scream for relief and are noticeably, needing to breathe. OOFOS women’s recovery sandals allows just that. My feet immediately feel relief. They feel genuine comfort. Most of all, they feel supported and correctly mobilized for movement. And although your OOFOS don’t make your real world responsibilities any more exciting than usual they certainly make it physically so.”
