If kids say the darnedest things, babies DO the darnedest things. This Father's Day, we're celebrating fatherhood with is video of 10 babies experiencing life for the first time. From eating a lemon to riding through a tunnel, these babies' reactions are sure to bring a smile to any dad's face.
Looking for another way to put a smile on your dad's face? Check out our new OOmg line of recovery shoes! Any dad in your life will appreciate the gift of supreme comfort, now available in a new shoe design as well as our signature sandals.
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.
Moms work harder than anyone. They deserve a day to themselves, a day that is relaxing, a day that makes their hard work feel appreciated. We all know this… but it can be hard to know how to actually give that day.
So, we put together this list of gift ideas to make your mom feel more comfortable this Mother’s Day. Because if there’s one thing that makes someone feel appreciated, it’s someone else going out of their way to make their day as comfortable as possible.
It’s safe to say that all of us are busy. Finding time to connect has become one of the biggest difficulties in our society and because of that our time is very valuable. Take a stroll around town with mom this Mother’s Day. It can be something as simple as walking around the block or riding bikes for a couple of miles. Giving your time to connect can be one of the greatest presents.
Try to imagine how many times your mom has prepared you a meal. She’s looked after you and your diet, always preparing the best meals to help keep you moving. Let her sit back, snack on some little bites and drink her favorite beverage as you reverse the roles and prepare her favorite meal.
A variety of services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Tivo, to name a few, make it easy to pick a movie.
If you're feeling classics, you can find something purely entertaining like The Godfather or Breakfast at Tiffany's. If you're after adventure, you can find something with inspiring whimsy like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. With such variety at your fingertips it may not be easy to choose just one movie, but you get the idea.
Let your mom sit back and relax with a good book. If she has a favorite author find the latest book that author released, assuming she hasn’t read it already. And if you want to go out on a limb, figure out her favorite genre of book and introduce her to a new author. We love The Art of Discarding because the author, Nagisa Tatsumi, gives easy advice about how to declutter our lives.
After a long day there’s nothing like wrapping up in a super soft blanket to relax. There are a number of soft blankets on the market to choose from, but something that might mean a little more to her is a handmade fleece blanket. They’re easy to make and we found this How-To video to help you make something cozy and relaxing for your mom.
After all the hard work your mom does every day of the week, just one relaxing day at the spa would do a world of good. A gift of a day at the spa to relax her mind and soothe her knotted up muscles might be just what the doctor ordered.
Of course we're going to mention recovery shoes. They make a great gift for anyone, but they're especially well suited if you're trying to give the gift of comfort. Moms are often doing things to make sure everyone in the family is happy and well taken care of. A pair of recovery shoes will help her feet, legs, and joints stay relaxed and comfortable all day. She’ll go to bed with less aches and pains and sleep easier after wearing a pair of recovery shoes. Check out our full line of recovery shoes here.
Compression socks increase blood flow and make comfort one step closer. Just like recovery shoes, they can be worn throughout the day to help smooth out any aches or pains, while at the same time helping your body to heal. They make a great gift for anyone, and any mom will feel more comfortable with a pair of compression socks.
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!
Spring has sprung, as they say, and it’s time to get out and enjoy the sun and showers alike. Has the winter season got you too accustomed to staying inside? Here are 6 activities to help you get out and celebrate spring.
This spring, we partnered with The Dyrt for a project with a simple mission: celebrating America's great outdoors.
The campaign is called #GetOutAndGO project. Every day, we're highlighting a new location across the US. The idea: too often we celebrate the monoliths of our National Park system but overlook the beautiful outdoor spaces that are closer to home.
By celebrating a new location across the US each day, we're flipping the script. We're highlighting the parks in our backyards to point to the fact that every state has incredible open spaces, regardless of National Park status.
In addition to daily stops, a new brand is giving away a different prize each day. And, of course, there's a grand prize: a $10,000 SylvanSport GO camper.
Enter to win and follow the virtual road trip at thedyrt.com/GO.
Here's to our great outdoor spaces!
