"Disclaimer: I received a pair of Oofos OOmg recovery shoes to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"
A few months ago, I ordered the OOfos oolala sandals and have been loving the support and cushion that I get from them. When I got the opportunity to try the closed toe OOmg shoes, I jumped on it.
OOfos has it’s own “OOfoam technology”. It provides approximately 37% more cushion than traditional footwear. The OOFos OOmg low shoe is designed to enhance the recovery process., but to also be something you can wear all day, every day to take the stress off your tired soles, joints and give your feet the freedom of natural movement.
Since I have osteoarthritis in my knees, I look for the most cushiony shoes I can find. I wanted recovery shoes that provided the same type of support and also offers rejuvenation. The OOmg shoes have about the same amount of cushion as my running shoes, which is pretty darn incredible!
I love that these are a slip on shoe, they are super convenient to grab and go, whether it is to walk the dog or get the mail.
I gave these a try after an 8 mile training run. The cushion was incredible. I wore them running errands. I think they are casual and sporty at the same time.
Look at all this cushion -
My feet have plenty of room to move, and I wore them both barefoot and with socks. Comfy both ways. I think that this will be very handy at my next Ragnar in Michigan. It’s maybe a little too chilly for flip flops in between running my legs, but these closed toed shoes are a perfect recovery tool!
The OOfos OOmg is currently only available in women’s sizes, and comes in 3 colors - black, gray and citron.The men’s version is coming out sometime in 2018. The retail price is $120.00, which is about the same investment as a good pair of running shoes. The bottom of the shoes will wear out before the foam. Treat yourself to a pair for summer!
The BibRave Pros had a little fun trying out the OOmg, we definitely recommend these shoes!
"Disclaimer: I received an Eat Smart Precision Digital Scale to review as part of being a Fitfluential Ambassador.
I admit it, I am a measuring freak when it comes to portioning out my food. I have so many measuring cups and spoons that get dirty in one day, it’s rather ridiculous. My kitchen scale broke a few months back, so I haven’t been able to weigh any food. Some of the harder things to measure without a scale are cheese and meat. I was excited to try out the Eat Smart Precision Digital Scale to help me weigh these items.
When the scale arrived, I was surprised at just how light it is! It only weighs 8 ounces!
It runs on a lithium battery, which came installed. It took a little doing to open the battery compartment and get things going, but once the battery was all set, we were good to go.
This scale measures in both grams as well as ounces/pounds, with just the touch of a button. It’s very easy to read. The scale can also weigh food that is up to 11 pounds.
The COOLEST feature is the Tare/Zero feature. It allows you to weigh something that’s in a container and get the exact weight without the container weight. No math required! Just place the empty container on the scale, then hit ON/TARE, and put your contents in the container. Boom! You've got the exact weight of the contents without the bowl!
To test it’s accuracy, I placed an 8 oz block of cheese. The scale showed 8.3 oz, which included the plastic wrapper. It passed the test : )
This is a very nice, and affordable scale. It retails for just $9.99! It also comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and two-year warranty. For more info, visit their page here. Eat Smart Products also make a variety of other health-related products like bath scales and food cooler packing & organizing systems.
