Bibrave Product Review: Oofos

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Oofos 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!

Pre race and recovery. Something every athlete thinks about on a regular basis, especially if you’re racing every other weekend. When I travel for races, I always tend to be on my feet way too much and walk around wherever I’m at and my feet end up tired and beat up. In come Oofos. I got my first pair of Oofos last year (take a look here) and loved them, so I was more than excited when we were on the board to test them again.

This time around, I had the chance to test the OOlala Orange version (last year, we were in on Oofos’ project pink line). Oofos started up 7 years ago as with recovery in mind. Technology wise, it takes the pressure off your feet, knees, and back, especially when they’re sore on top of absorbing 37% more impact than other foams. Because of this, there’s some faster recovery time.

My trainers will tell you the amount of torture I put myself through with weight training and endurance training (because gaining muscle and endurance totally go together…or not). I’ve gotten to the point where I throw my Oofos in the back of my car to switch into after work outs, especially if I’m going somewhere after a work out. This past weekend, I was walking a whole bunch around Coeur d’Alene and had my Oofos on all weekend and my feet weren’t screaming at me

Another perk about the Oofos is their arch support. They give extra cushion to your feet so you’re feet aren’t yelling at you and if you’re short like me, an extra inch. Even if you don’t need Oofos for some height, they allow for a more natural gait while you walk.

Up until the beginning of this year, I was primarily a runner. I’ve been putting my hat in to some triathlons as well and have been waring my oofos pre race to keep my feet in line. They’re durable and can be hosed off easily (or thrown in the washer). They’re very durable and made to last which is also appreciated.

If that’s not enough, 3% of all sales go to Project Pink for Breast Cancer Research, in support of their Direct of Marketing, who’s been fighting stage IV breast cancer.

Head on over and get your pair. I’m going to be looking at some of their clogs to try and get me through work, where I’m on my feet 12 hours a day 7 days straight every other week. Don’t forget to join us for #bibchat on Tuesday 9PM EST/6 PM PST!

    They really are super comfy. I put them on as soon as I get home from work or after a run. I’m hoping they’ll get even better as I “break them in”.
