Recently I had the chance to try out a pair of OOfos
. I decided to get a pair of their thong flip flops since the warmer weather is slowly coming. I have heard a lot about these sandals from other blogs and they were always raving about how awesome they are so I was pretty excited myself! I couldn't wait to see what the big deal was about these and how they were so different from any other flip flop.
"They created the revolutionary OOFOS brand experience powered by an innovative, visionary material called OOfoam. The patented foot-bed design delivers an unprecedented experience because of its unique energy absorption capabilities." From doing all sorts of tests, they found that OOfoam is 37% more impact absorbing than any other EVA, which is the most commonly used material in footwear! So that means obviously more comfort, reduces that tired feet feeling and cushion!
I decided to get them in black so I can wear them with just about anything. I got them in a size 9 and they fit pretty true to size. Although I could probably get away with an 8 if I really wanted to. They are a little thicker than the flip flops that I am used to (old navy) but that didn't bother me. I slipped them on and instantly said "Ooooh" out loud. It was like slipping on pillows under my feet!
They OOfos thong sandal
fit snug on my foot and my feet felt nice and secure in them. My fiance asked where I was going because I was walking around the house in flip flops and I told him that these were like walking on pillows and I just didn't want to take them off. He thought I was crazy but could tell I was serious!! I really like them because they have a little bit of an arch to them which helps me specifically because I am flat footed and this helps my feet not hurt after a while. Also, if you think of regular flip flops, they are as flat as a board which wouldn't help my case at all!
Although, style wise, they wouldn't be the first thing I would look at in a store. But after putting them on my feet and seeing how much better I felt after a day of wearing these as opposed to cheap flip flops, I would totally recommend these to anybody! Comfort and preventing pain in your feet is important and will make your feet thank you later!! I hope to see more styled designs come out soon too. Maybe a little thinner platform and thinner strap or maybe even some designs put on the straps?! What do you think? Be sure to check out their other shoes too by visiting their website
