Women's Footwear That Treats Your Feet to a Spa Day

It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is nothing better than getting pampered at the spa. That’s especially true if you’re used to powering through your day looking your best, since another universally acknowledged truth is that a lot of the shoes we wear to feel our fanciest are...less than comfortable. So when you find a pair of women’s footwear that are not just comfortable, but feel like that coveted trip to the spa, well. That’s how you know you’ve found something special. That’s how you know you’ve found a pair of OOFOS.

 

Did you know that there are 26 bones, 33 joints, and over a hundred ligaments and muscles in a foot? Your feet are some of the most mechanically complex parts of your body, and even if you sit all day, they are under quite a bit of pressure. Spa treatments designed to relax and revive the feet usually do so by increasing circulation, releasing tension, easing sore or swollen fascia, and realigning your feet with the muscles in your legs, hips, and back.

Science hasn’t figured out quite yet how to build mobile whirlpool tubs with pulsing jets of hot water to into a pair of slip-ons for that eight-hour pedicure feeling. The closest thing we’ve got is our proprietary OOFOS foam, which was engineered to produce as close to the same effect as possible. No, these shoes won’t light a aromatherapy million candles for you or mellow play world music from the 1990s, but they will leave you feeling like you just got a foot massage, even if you’re standing at the end of a marathon course, at a campground, or in your living room after a tough day at the office.

What OOFOS do for your feet is take the pressure off. By helping your joints align properly, muscles, tendons, and ligaments can relax. That can prevent or reduce the likelihood or effects of injury, improve circulation, and even help you exercise more effectively. We can’t avoid all the damage that day to day life does to our feet— especially not if we engage in high-impact activities like running or have a love that won’t quit for high heeled shoes. We can head off conditions like hammer toe, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis, however, by slipping on a pair of OOFOS that do the opposite of your daily run or favorite pair of shoes.

The best part might be not just the feeling of putting on a pair of shoes that feel amazing, but that one pair of OOFOs is vastly more affordable than a regular spa date. Instead of squeezing a monthly trip to the pedicure chair into your busy calendar and carefully planned budget, you can slip on your recovery shoes every day after work, as soon as your workout is over, or on late weekend nights when you just can’t take another minute of your best stilettos. You can undo the wear and tear from the week while you run to the post office and power through the last couple financial reports from work.

Women's footwear gets a bad rap for being about everything other than comfort. We’re here to push back with a pair that feels like a major indulgence. So go on, get a pair of OOFOS. We can’t wait to see if you think our spa day comparison holds up as well as our super-soft OOfoam.
