We put our feet through a lot. Whether it’s putting in the miles on hard asphalt pavement, walking barefoot on the hardwood or tile floors at home, or squeezing your feet into sky-high heels, during our day-to-day lives, our feet surely take a beating. Think about your life and the activities that you do that add stress to your feet.
We know the importance of taking care of our bodies in other ways—eating nutritious meals, exercising, getting proper sleep… so why do we neglect taking care of our feet?
National Flip Flop Day is celebrated on the 3rd Friday in June, when it’s warm and sunny throughout most of the country and people are ready to ditch their closed toe shoes for the summer.
Flip Flops sometimes get a bad reputation as being bad for your feet because of their typically unsupportive nature, though that isn’t always the case. Let’s face it, most people have at least one pair of cheap flip flops in their shoe collection. They’re inexpensive and easy to throw on for the beach, as shower shoes, or to let your feet breathe after you finish a hike or run, but those shoes aren’t the best option when it comes to foot health.
It’s finally summer (well... almost officially). That means you can let out a big old OO sigh of relief and start doing more of the things you love outside. A great time to celebrate all those hikes, trial runs, marathons, ultras, and long walks on the beach is June 9th-- National Get Outdoors Day!
We’re celebrating by making it even easier to spend time outdoors. That’s why we’ve launched a camping review contest on The Dyrt. All you have to do to enter is submit your campground reviews, pictures, and videos, and you’ll be entered to win great OOFOS gear.
June 6th is Global Running Day, a world-wide celebration of running. Whether you’re a seasoned distance runner or simply able to run a lap around your block, Global Running Day is a day to have fun being active.
In recognition of Global Running Day, celebrated across over 120 countries, we want to encourage you to get moving.
