Amanda Burrill, a fitness model and sponsored athlete, tells us all about the trials of foot and lower body injuries and the tips for improving foot health with proper recovery. Her time in the military and her active lifestyle combined has caused foot problems that she constantly needs to monitor. The problems have escalated so much over the years that she has needed to get multiple surgeries to try and fix them.
Because she knows these problems won’t necessarily go away, she understands the importance of recovery. In addition to using the RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) method for recovery, she also relies on OOFOS to provide her with the support her feet need!

Stephanie DeLussey, the writer behind Mrs D’s Corner, is an elementary school teacher in Houston, TX who swears by her OOFOS OOlala sandals and OOcloog Luxe clogs. Constantly being on her feet in the classroom, the hallways and the playground, Stephanie would struggle with back pain on a regular basis and was not able to find relief with any of the shoes she would buy. Cue her excitement and relief when she found OOFOS! She started wearing them everyday to school and says,
“And at the end of every day, neither my feet nor my back hurt. At all. Just ask my husband, because on any typical school evening, he is massaging my feet or back because I'm in pain. He deserves an award... and so does OOFOS.”
To share her love of OOFOS with others, Stephanie is hosting a 3-pair giveaway on her blog! Act quickly, because it ends this Wednesday, August 17th! Enter the giveaway today and read her full review on her blog. http://www.mrsdscorner.com/2016/08/oofos-footwear-for-back-to-school.html
Best in Show Daily: Leah is a 30 year veteran of dog shows. All of the walking, grooming, and exercising of dogs can take a toll on feet with 8+ standing hours a day during shows. Leah found that OOFOS was perfect for her lifestyle, here is what she had to say:
“I have literally worn these nonstop since their arrival, other than to sleep. Not only are they super comfortable and cushioning, they offer great arch support and are easily washable...Floating on air! That’s the only way to describe the OOFOS sandal. After double knee replacements, I am always trying to find comfortable supportive shoes for shock absorption”

Hannah Peters, the mom of two darling puppies and blogger of Hanglitzglam, a lifestyle and fashion blog, recently discovered OOFOS in an athletic boutique while travelling in Chicago. She now loves OOFOS so much that she is running a giveaway contest right on her Instagram account – Visit her profile and enter by July 18th for a chance to win!
Hannah went straight for some black OOlalas and describes her experience of OOFOS at first sight saying, “I found a cute pair of athletic sandals. Little did I know, these sandals were about to change my life!”
After spending some quality time with her OOFOS and even picking up a second pair of OOlalas in Bermuda Blue, she says:
“…it is quite impressive the stress it relieves off of your feet. It absorbs up to 37% more shock than other shoes. I can honestly say that these shoes have helped with my posture, headaches, and the way my feet feel at the end of the day. I have two pups and I am constantly on the move, and these are exactly what I needed. They are perfect for toning down after a workout, traveling, long walks in a city, dressing up or down an outfit, or even a beach shoe. They don't retain moisture, plus they are bacterial resistant. Everyone deserves to treat themselves to these cuties.”
