What in the world are Oofoos? (giveaway ends 4/12/13)



Have you ever heard of Oofos before? If not, what do you suppose it it? Is it a food? Drink? British rock band? Or perhaps some exotic creature found only in the Amazon jungle? If you agreed with any of these options you are wrong. 🙂

Oofos is a brand of SHOE.

Oofos shoes are make with an innovative material called OOfoam. The shoes also feature a unique, patented foot-bed design that delivers an unprecedented experience because of its unique energy absorption capabilities. The OOfoam technology also helps to recharge and rejuvenate your feet.

Oofos sent me a free sample pair of their shoes to review. I was not compensated in any way.

I’m look for shoes that provide me with comfort more so style and design. I rather wear sneakers or tennis shoes than heels or pumps. I rather be comfortable than fashionable.

Oofos shoes come in three different styles.




I opted for the Oocloog. I’m very self conscious when it comes to my freakish looking toes. I prefer shoes that hide my toes, not showcase them for all to see. I also don’t like the feeling of having something between my toes like you get with the Thongs.

I couldn’t wait to try these shoes on.

Ahhh… These are the most comfortable shoes I have had in a very long time. They are very soft, almost sponge-like in a way. Your feet sink into them and the material gently hugs your feet surrounding them in comfort.

Over the years I have worn shoes that have provide my feet with little-t0-no support, and I have paid the price for that with bone spurs. Bone spurs are caused by pressure, rubbing and/or stress. At one point I had spurs on both feet. It was terribly painful, especially when I tried to stand up getting out of bed in the morning or after sitting for a long time. The Podiatrist told me I had to wear shoes with proper arch support. For a while I even had to wear uncomfortable inserts in my shoes just to make sure I had the support I needed. Since then I have made extra certain to only wear shoes that properly support my feet.

The Oofos shoes provide my feet with the support they need as well as extra comfort. And let me tel you – these are comfortable! Normally when I walk in the door the first thing I do is kick my shoes off. With these shoes I don’t mind keeping them on around the house. They are as comfy as a well loved pair of slippers. Of course these are shoes you can wear to work, running errands or just window shopping in town.

These are great shoes to have on hand when you need to dash out to do some errands. Since they are available in a variety of colors you can find a pair (or two) to match most of your outfits too.

I am NOT a “shoe person”, not in the least, however I ♥ my Oofos shoes. They are super comfy and currently my “go-to” shoe to wear when I have to go out (unless it’s color or raining then I’ll wear my sneakers).

Oofos shoes are sold online at the Oofos website as well as other retail locations.
