With a name like OOFOS these shoes immediately sparked our interest, turns out the name is inspired by the noise you make when you put them on because they are “ooo” so comfortable.
These shoes are the original active recovery footwear brand which have been designed to support your feet post run and workouts, however they are suitable for anyone looking for a comfortable supportive shoe for all day wear. All the OOFOS are powered by the proprietary OOfoam which absorbs 37% more impact than a regular shoe designed to help you recover without slowing you down. We received the women’s OMGG EEZEE Low Shoe in the Sage, they are also available in Black, White, Pink, Orange, Taupe, Yellow and Platinum and come in sizes 4-8, nothing about them screams that they are a recovery shoe but the moment you put them on you realise they are something special. They really do make you go “ooo”, the foam insole cradles the arch of the foot, this has a direct impact on reducing stress in the foot, up the ankle, to the knees and other joints, the upper is made from one piece of a 4-way stretch woven canvas with a reinforced heel.
The minimal seams mean these shoes can comfortably be worn without socks and the closed-cell foam is machine washable and designed to minimize odour. The heel-to-toe drop in all OOFOS is 6mm, but due to the heel cup and elevated arch, the traditional approach to measuring drop does not translate from performance footwear. The outsole has a curved design that encourages the foot to roll from heel to toe for even less effort from your muscles and joints, this makes them a good choice not just for recovery but also for those suffering with plantar fasciitis or those on their feet all day long at work, nurses for example could benefit from the comfort these shoes provide.
The sizing felt a little tight across the top of the foot and unfortunately half sizes are not available, but this could be because I was wearing sock plus they should contour to the feet the more you wear them. It wasn’t uncomfortably tight, just tighter than I am used to, but it is probably worth trying a size up too, just to make sure you have the right fit. Overall, the OOMG EEZEE Low Shoes are seriously comfortable shoes, perfect for post recovery days and long days on your feet, oh and for more than just a feel-good feeling in your feet, a portion of each sale is donated to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity resulting in £25,349.76 donated so far.
