I’ve revealed in the past that I love wearing flip flops, especially in the summer. However, I injured my ankle back when I was 16 so I’m not supposed to wear wear shoes without proper support. Needless to say, I am always on the lookout for comfortable and supportive shoes to wear. Recently, I found the Oofos brand which makes shoes using their patented Oofoam. This new technology has been shown to be 37% more impact absorbing than any existing EVA, which is great for people like me as this reduces pain and fatigue.
I received a pair of these shoes to try. The shoes come in a variety of colors, but I went with black since it goes with anything. Haha! So, naturally I like the look of my new shoes. They do have two styles of shoes, the thong and the slide. Since I love flip flops, I went with the Oofos thong. I am so happy I did that since these shoes are unique and comfy.
The foam feels so smooth and cushiony. I had my dad feel them one day (he is legally blind) just to see what he thought of them. He said it reminded him of a tire. Haha! So, you know these shoes are durable yet comfy. The foam is squishy and smooth to the touch. Since the whole shoe is made from the foam, you know you won’t get any blisters with these shoes. The only complain I have thus far is that the bottom of the shoe seems to be at a bit of a slant. However, my ankles naturally tend to roll out when I walk and I put all of my weight towards the outside of a shoe. So, that’s probably the shoe’s attempt at keeping me upright. Haha!
