What does this mean?
OOFOS shoes are designed to support your arches and cradle your footbed, and the soft OOfoam™ material works to absorb impact so that when you’re walking, energy gets displaced to the side instead of going back up into your body. This helps to take stress off of your ankles, knees, hips and lower back—truly making you feel better. The shoe is designed to enable a more natural walking motion because there is nothing added in between your foot, OOfoam™ and the ground. Your foot is able to articulate the way it was naturally designed to, as if you were walking on grass or sand.
OOfoam™ is a closed cell foam, so it doesn’t hold in any moisture or bacteria and minimizes odor. This is a great feature because you can wear them anywhere and easily clean them if they get dirty. You can throw your OOFOS into the washing machine on the gentle cycle using a mild detergent, or simply wipe them down with a wipe or washcloth and they’ll be good as new. OOFOS shoes even float in water!
OOfoam™ also never loses its integrity throughout the life of the shoe. This means that no matter how much you wear the shoes, you’ll always get that soft foam cushioning, comfort and support under your feet. You'll just want to pay attention to the tread on the bottom of the shoes. When that starts to wear down, it’s time to replace your OOs.
