OOFOS Comfortable Shoes: "Feel the OO!"

Oofos supportive sandal shoes

While it may be cooling off in some parts of the country, it is still pretty warm here and I don’t think my Old Navy flip flops will be lasting much longer. Luckily I recently received a pair of OOFOS. The OOFOS shoe is based around a proprietary technology of OOFOAM which absorbs 37% of impact and shock making them the soft and supportive sandal that they are.

When I first put them on I said “Ooo, this like walking on marshmallow’s…minus the sticky” …they are so thick, comfy and supportive, I don’t know if I will ever revert back to regular flip flops again. OOFOS aren’t just another pair of sandals they provide the support and protection of a shoe. Look at the thickness of the sole compared to a pair of flip flops:

Comfortable Shoes

I live out in the country, so there are many rocks, sticks and stumps in my back yard… it was not usual for me to step on a rock or a stick and have it poke through my old flimsy flip flops before. I haven’t had that problem with the OOFOS. I love these sandals!

Now that you know a little bit about this wonderful company, let me tell you about the shoes I received. I had been wanting and looking all over for a comfy pair of slip on shoes, not ballet flats though, I have a ton of those. I wanted something comfortable that would stay on my feet, a pair that I could slip on with a pair of jeans and wear socks with. I looked here and there in different stores with no luck. Then, I remembered seeing the type of slips on shoes I had in mind on the soleRebels website. These are the shoes I chose, the PureLove homegrown:

Note the soles made from recycled tires and the craftsmanship of the stitching. I slipped these shoes on and was astounded at how comfortable they were.

They are easily one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever owned.


I finally experienced the companies slogan “walk naked” for myself…it’s as if my feet are naked when I have these shoes on…only better because they are protected and the soles provide such good support.

I highly recommend using their sizing chart, it is extremely accurate and will help you determine what size you should get. I normally wear a size 9 or 10 (yes, I have large feet), depending on the shoe, I always have to try shoes on when I am buying to ensure a comfortable fit. In this case, I printed out their sizing chart to measure my foot, it was a little bit past the 9.5 mark, so I decided to order a 10 and they fit wonderfully.

Buy It: You can purchase soleRebles online from their website, they have slip ons, sandals, lace ups, boots, flats and more.

Win It: We have teamed up with soleRebels to offer our readers the chance to win the pair of shoes of their choice and a soleRebels Walk Naked T-shirt. There will be 2 winners! This giveaway will run until September 30 and is open Worldwide. Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below:

Back Up Soles Review and Giveaway

How many times have you worn heels and halfway through the event/party you wished you had back up pair of shoes to change into? Back Up Soles to the rescue! Back Up Soles provides flats that roll up into a small bag and carry in your purse. They also come with a larger back to put your heels in once you swap shoes, pretty clever, eh? Picture below are the 2 bags laid out with a pair of the Back Up Soles and also a pair still rolled up, see how little space they take up?!

Can Be Worn
Any time shoe pain relief is needed
>>Around the house
>>Night Clubs

foldable flats

Since these shoes are made to be rolled up, the soles aren’t very thick and are very flexible, so I don’t recommend you wear them through any rough terrain, but anywhere else they should be fine.

The only problem the sizing can cause is if you are a half size not in one of the above ranges, for instance my daughter is a size 4 1/2, the xsmall would have been too small and the small was just a wee bit too big. Her toes didn’t reach the end and the shoes wasn’t completely filled in, so the toe of the shoes rolled up just a little bit, since the shoes were use to being rolled up. This isn’t a huge deal as her feet are still growing and they will fit her perfectly soon, I’m sure. I wanted her to have a pair that she could wear to and from dance class as she can’t wear her ballet and tap shoes on the street, these will fit in her dance bag without taking up a lot of room. They are easy for her to slip on and off and will cover her toes in the winter months (as opposed to flip flops). The pair I got for myself (the white pair) are a perfect fit, I typically wear a size 9 or 10 depending on the shoe, so the Large (9-10) were a great fit for me.
