11 Days of Giving: Day 4 - Oofos #GIVEAWAY

Disclaimer: I have received one pair of OOFOS for review and giveaway purposes.  I bought the initial pair at Road Runner Sports.  I was not requested to write a positive review.  All opinions are my own and I have received no monetary compensation for this post.  

Welcome to Day 4 of 11 Days of Giving!  Thank you so much to OOFOS but most of all, thank you for you!  What a great end to the year giving away 11 of my very favorites!


When my friend Jen at Running with the Girls reviewed OOFOS, I knew I had to check them out.  So, recently when I was at a Stretch Clinic at Road Runner Sports, I saw them, tried them on and walked out in them (come on!  I paid!).  


They look like regular old flip flops but WAIT!  They have 37% more shock absorption than any other foam material on the market.  You literally step in to them and go, "OO!"  See?  That's how they came up with the name.


See the beautiful arch support?  And they are machine washable.  So what does this mean for an endurance runner?  Or any athlete looking to recover?  It means that because there is 37% more shock absorption, 37% LESS shock is traveling up into your body when your foot impacts the ground.  The shock is dissipated thru the shoe.  Brilliant!  And of course, they have cute colors.


As my runs get longer, my recovery gets more and more important.  So let me tell you, when I put on these shoes after a long run, I definitely feel the "OO."  So you should try them.  Many athletes have found improvements in knee pain and Plantar issues after wearing these.  I even wear these to walk the dog in the mornings.  I want every color!  An #OOFOSRainbow!

So your turn.  OOFOS has generously agreed to GIVEAWAY one pair of thong style to a lucky winner in the available color of their choice.  Enter on the Rafflecopter.

  26. These are definitely better than flip flops. It kills me to see runners in flip flops. Regular flops require you to grip with your toes as you walk (so they don't fall off). This turns off all the mid-foot musculature, which is supposed to be firing while you walk. Essentially, walking in flops trains your foot to do the exact opposite of what it should be doing. Very bad! But these sandals are NOT flops. I can tell by the sculpted footbed and the positioning of the straps. All my distance runner friends say they are amazing, so I'd love to win a pair and try them out!
