Harder Training, Better Recovery: My Oofos Sandal Review

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Men's Original Project Pink Sandal to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

For me, recovery is just as important during training as the training itself! The harder I train, the more mindful I am to get some quality recovery in between. And for the past two years, I've had a pair of OOFOS Sandals on standby for those recovery periods.


I first discovered OOFOS at Fleet Feet Sports Scottsdale two summers ago, while searching for something to relieve my constant Plantar Fasciitis pain. I immediately fell in love. They were soft like clouds, while still providing me with the proper arch support I needed for pain relief. 


While I couldn't wear these at work (unless it was super casual Friday), I would always wear them around the house, when out walking the dogs, and anytime after a long run. Flash forward to recently, when I realized my original pair of OOFOS were getting pretty worn. And it was time to trade them in for a new model. 

Enter the Project Pink OOFOS. Not only were they the same comfort and relief that I was accustomed to, but the Project Pink line benefits a great cause too! As part of the OOFOS charitable giving effort, $10 from each pair of Project Pink OOFOS sold will go to breast cancer research. 


I love it when a company has initiatives like this that make me feel that my normal purchase can make a difference. Plus, breast cancer has a personal connection for me: my grandmother suffered from breast cancer and cancer itself does run in my family. So being able to contribute to cancer research is a huge deal for me, thus why I list it first and foremost in this review. 

In addition, the fight against breast cancer also hits home for those at OOFOS. Duncan Fenian, a long time member of the OOFOS family, was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2014. Read more about Duncan's Story here


Now, on to why I love OOFOS and why they're an important tool for recovery. Not only are they comfortable and provide support for achy arches, but here's what makes OOFOS stand out:
  • Absorbs more shock than traditional foams
  • Reduces stress on sore feet, knees, and back
  • Cradles your arches
  • Enables more natural motion
  • Soft toe post eliminates chafing
  • Durable foam holds its cushion its entire life
  • Moisture resistant closed cell foam is shower-ready and machine washable

My experience with OOFOS has been incredible. They really have lasted me for a long time and I know I can count on them for many more miles and race recovery days ahead. I highly recommend getting a pair yourself for your recovery days. You are hard on your feet, they deserve a treat too!
