I am definitely in recovery mode today after running a half marathon yesterday (race review to come) so I am glad that I have a pair of the OOfos OOmg shoes. This is actually my second pair of these shoes (find my first review here).
I like the shoes for everyday wear for the simple fact that they are comfortable. If you are familiar with any of the OOFOS sandals, you know that the arch support in any of the OOfos products is heavenly. The footbed of the OOmg shoe is like their sandals, which provides great arch support. The upper is a flexible fabric that dries quickly, provides 4-way stretch, and lets air flow, keeping your feet cool.
I like wearing the shoes a lot around my house because they are easy to slip on. Why not take advantage of the arch support of the OOmg as much as possible, right? They pair well with an ice cream cookie sandwich:
The OOmg absorbs 37% more impact than a traditional shoe. This time around, I was going to be able to give them a true test of wear and recovery ability. We were headed to Madison, WI for a long weekend and these were the ONLY shoes I packed (besides my race shoes).
We arrived in Madison on Friday and immediately started walking around. One of the great things about the city is that is very walkable. I had a race on Saturday morning so I was hoping the OOfos OOmg shoes were going to keep my feet and legs in race shape.

The walking then continued. We put on over 24,000 steps in one day. My feet never felt tired. My lower back never ached and my legs surprisingly held up well!
This morning I woke up and was surprised that my feet and legs were not as sore as they usually are after a long race. I'm sold on these shoes as a post-race recovery tool!
What would you pair your OOfos OOmg low shoes with: The Beer or the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich?
