I live in San Diego, on the beach, where 99% of people spend their lives in flip flops. But I don’t. Most of the year you can find me wearing jeans, a sweater and closed toed shoes, no matter what the weather is like. I love the way sandals look, and the way they show off a perfect Summer pedicure, but I also put my comfort level first.
I have heard such wonderful things about the OOFOS OOriginal Thong that I had to have a pair to try for myself. People are not exaggerating when they say this is the most comfortable pair of sandals you will ever wear. OOFOS are truly not just a “flip flop”- they are footwear that I will happily sport all year round.
As soon as I put them on, I spent twenty minutes just walking around my house in them. They are just that comfortable. They are thicker than normal sandals and provide much more support than you will find from any other brand.
So what makes OOFOS so amazing?
Their footwear is made out of their signature OOfoam which is gives them their cushion, flexibility, durability, washability and comfort. I can’t believe that they are even machine washable!
I put them to the test by wearing them around Sea World. My feet were tired by the end of the day, but even though they were new, I still have never gotten a blister from my OOFOS. I can never pull off flip flops at amusement parks without getting blisters, so this was really impressive to me!
Another way I love to use them is for creeping around my house during Elodie’s nap time because it cushions my steps to make them much quieter!
I took them on my vacation this week and enjoyed them everywhere I went. They are waterproof, so I even wore them around and in the kiddie pool with Elodie, and they have great traction. They also protected my feet from the sizzling hot asphalt. You might think that they would get hot (especially the black ones) but they don’t.
They are amazingly resilient shoes that are perfect for almost any situation, and they make them in men’s and women’s sizes. I highly recommend them for sandal enthusiasts and for those who haven’t found their perfect summer shoe yet. OOFOS are one of a kind!
You can purchase OOFOS online through the Insole Store.
