Be Kind To Your Feet With OOFOS
Good shoes are key in fashion. I know at least one person has told you before that in you lifetime and it really is the basis for shoe shopping as well. Another great thing to remember is that even if you have the best shoes you have to make sure you are wearing them properly. I have a pair of tan boots that I wear most of winter. It has a nice rubber sole and it keeps my feet warm and toasty for the most part in winter. I learned the hard way that it’s not shoes meant for a lot of walking around. My feet would ache after taking off my shoes and in turn I would be restless all night, resulting in very little sleep. It’s very important that you be kind to your feet and with my OOFOS shoes that’s what I plan to do.
When my OOFOS arrived in the mail I took it out the package and wondered how this was going to help me treat my feet better. The same day I wore my boots out to walk around the mall all day was the night I came home, opened the packaged, slipped on my Fuschia Ooriginal Thong and had my very first Feel The OO moment and boy did I fall in love with these thongs right away. To put the feeling in words, my feet started singing “Thank You for treating me well!” It felt amazing to put my tired achy feet in these shoes and feel it start to recharge me. I can tell you now as soon as the weather warms up this will be my shoe of choice as long as I can wear them. I will note that I suffer from high blood pressure and when my feet get swollen my thongs were a little tight. I would have chosen a bigger size if I though about this before hand but when my feet are fine they fit perfectly. Also your feet will need to adjust to wearing these shoes so take a few days to break them in at home. OOFOS also carries a sandal and a clog that both feature the same foam technology as the Ooriginal.
The Technology behind OOFOS
The OOFOS brand experience is powered by the cutting-edge proprietary material called OOfoam. Our technology is a combination of compound and our patented footbed design. Our unique DNA provides an unmatched OOfeel that’s energy absorbing.

The initial try on and rejuvenating experience you have when you slip into our shoes is called Feel the OO. As part of their Make YOO Feel Better mission OOFOS is making efforts to bring the Feel the OO experience to more and more communities in 2013. If you’re wondering Where to buy OOFOS shoes you can buy it on their website and retail stores. You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
Here’s some tips for shoe shopping to help you in your efforts to be kind to your feet:
- Pick the perfect pair – make sure the shoes is meeting the needs that you desire and that will be comfortable.
- Have you feet measured – if you have lost or gained weight, haven’t done it since turning 25 or recently had a baby.
- Buy the correct size – shoes that are too small can lead to sore achy feet, corns and more.
- Shop for shoes that stretch – your feet can swell and need space if it does, buy shoes that has some room for any swelling.
- Get proper support – heels and flats offer very little support use insoles to help with this lack of support.
Taking care of your feet will help them feel better and reduce arch and heel pains. Also give your feet an at home message every now and again to help refresh them.
