Recently OOFOS sent me two pairs to try out in exchange for my totally honest review. At first, my thoughts were "Wow, those are expensive clogs". I was wrong... FIRST, they are NOT Clogs at least in the sense I know them. They are OOFOS and you can truly feel the "oo" as in "OHHHHH" when you put them on. They are basically an upgrade from clogs because of the special OOfoam recovery technology in them that helps absorb the impact of each step that you make. Believe me when I tell you they are super comfortable. I thought they would be like any other slip on shoe as a back up and probably squeaky everywhere I walked. Again, I was wrong. These things, I find on my fight everyday all day long. Does my husband make fun of me? Yes. But I don't care.. they are that comfortable. They conform to my feet because of the arch support and they are lightweight and really nice to walk around in.
The first pair of OOFOS I received were the "OOFOS-OOcloog Luxe-Women's" in "Cloud Luxe". They are shiny (not my preference) and you can dress them up or down, so I do like them because I have that option. They are not my "go to" ones that I would wear with any and every outfit, although I probably could get away with it. There are 4 other colors to choose from (Cranberry Luxe, Black Luxe, Mocha Luxe, and Periwinkle Luxe) if this style is something you are interested in. You can view them HERE. While they are priced at $64.95, I want you to keep in mind that you are getting a high quality shoe built for your comfort. It's not just any slip on shoe. As stated on OOFOS website, the OOcloog Luxe provides superior impact absorption, arch support, and biochemically designed footbed that you need.
Here are some details about the Shoe Technology pulled right from OOFOS website:
- OOfoam: Absorbs 37% more shock than other materials
- Reduces stress on sore feet, knees and lower back
- Cradles your arches
- Biomechanically designed footbed allows natural motion
- Soft, conforming toe post eliminates toe chafing
- Shower/beach-ready — moisture and bacteria resistant; doesn’t retain smell
- Durable OOfoam holds its cushion
- Machine washable
- So light they float
Soooo, with that said- I do have to agree that it's very absorbent and I feel less stress in my feet than I used to. After wearing my sneakers all day, I usually feel achy and just can't wait to sit down. With these, I feel way less achy and don't have the NEED to sit down right away-although that is always nice! I haven't noticed any smell coming from them after wearing them every day, like I would with sneakers and I've been wearing them for about 2 months now. They are still just as comfortable as the day I got them and the appearance of the shoe is still good except for the one side, I scuffed it on something and now there is a black streak on the side of the shoe, I yet have to figure out the best way to get it off and when I do, I'll update you. I have not tried washing them in the machine but I have found for the most part, dirt is pretty easy to wipe off and keep them looking pretty.
The second pair of OOFOS I received were the "OOFOS-OOCloog-Women's" in "Black". They are priced at $54.95. These are the ones I find myself wearing EVERY SINGLE DAY. Even when I've worn my sneakers, I come home and put these on because they are comfortable, light, conveniently easy to slip on, and they go with anything! These are a matte black and more my preference because they aren't super shiny saying "hey look at me!". BUT I don't mind that people notice them because it gives me the opportunity to share this amazing company and products with others that I've become so happy with. They are described as the classic clog, on OOFOS site but they have the upgraded OOfoam recovery technology as well, as I believe all of their products do. As of now, these ones only come in black. I would really like to see OOFOS expand their inventory and add other colors like: Gray, Brown, Navy Blue, White, and Cream/Khaki.
I want to point out that I've worn the OOCloog Black OOFOS almost everywhere I've gone in the last two months and I am still very happy with them. I've worn them when the weather was still warm and now that it's cold and my feet surprisingly stay WARM!! I was shocked because they are clearly open in the back and they do have vent holds near the toes. My feet don't sweat in them but they don't feel breezy wearing them either. For me these OOCloog's are just right. I've also worn them to the YMCA in the shower and around the pool. They weren't slippery and they rinsed off clean afterwards.
Would I recommend OOFOS to my friends and family? Surely. They're stylish, comfortable, easy to maintain, and there are many options. Not only does OOFOS sell the two pairs that I've shared with you, but they also have supportive flip flops and other styles to choose from AND there is a Men's line, too! The Men's have all the same options but built for them.
I do want to share the Sizing information with you from their site because I found it really helpful to me.
If you normally wear a whole size: Order the same whole size OOfos.
If you normally wear a half size:
- Women: order a half size UP for best fit.
- Men: order a half size DOWN for best fit.
After speaking to them about the shoe size, I actually found that a size bigger than my normal size is what I needed. I normally wear size 8-8.5 but in these the size 9 is PERFECT. Now, I know this will be different for everyone but this is what worked for me. I still have some room in them. It gives me just the right amount of space to wear them with or without socks. I feel like they are my original size. I wear them with jeans so I usually have socks on when I wear them. When I go to the pool, I wear them without socks and I don't find them flopping around for slipping off. I am happy with this and would totally recommend them.
I recently learned that with every purchase of the Ribbon OORIGINAL, viewed HERE, they will donate $10 to the DANA-FARBER Cancer Institute to support the fight against breast cancer. This is close to my heart because I've had two family members who fought breast cancer and it's wonderful to see a company who is donating and giving back.
I feel that anyone who works on their feet all day: Nurses, Teachers, Doctors, You, Your Family and Friends ;) etc... would benefit from them at least in comfort.
