As a Floridian, I live in sandals year round. They are easy to take on and off and they keep your feet cooler than socks and shoes. If you have the right pair, they can even be more comfortable. There is nothing like having cool and comfortable feet on a hot Florida day. I recently discovered OOFOS and trust me, they are a brand that you are going to want to try for yourself.
Here is a picture of the first time I tried on my OOFOS OOriginal Women’s:
I actually received them on my way to work and I couldn't wait to try them. So, picture was taken there. Excuse the old, dirty, corporate carpet.
Pure Bliss. Do you know that saying that “it was like walking on clouds”? I believe that the person that said that was wearing OOFOS at the time. The OOfoam technology in OOFOS offers:
*Unparalled impact absorption
*Superior arch support
These are truly the most comfortable sandals that I have ever owned. They may even be the most comfortable pair of shoes I have every owned. Since I can’t find the details on the material other than that it is “OOfoam technology”, I am going to explain these shoes to you as I interpret them and hope that my interpretation is correct. They seem to be some mixture of rubber and foam mixed together and poured into a mold. The mold has grooves and raised arches for extra support. The result is super comfortable and bouncy shoes.

My Husband always used to make fun of me for wearing flip flops to amusement parks. He didn’t understand how my feet could survive that. Well, that was before my numerous injuries (broken tibia, broken fibula, dislocated knee, metal plates and screws in my right ankle, 2 discs replaced in my spine, etc.) I now need more support than your average flip flops or sandals can offer if I am going to be walking any amount of time. Luckily, these Oofos provide the support I need. No more shoes and socks at the amusement park! Yay!
