"Disclaimer: I received a pair of Oofos recovery sandals 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!"
Earlier this year, I discovered the magic of OOfos. When I heard they had a product line that gives back to charity, I was very interested to know more.
The Project Pink line at Oofos is a collection of sandals that utilize the incredible OOfoam technology, but also gives back to breast cancer research.
First, let’s talk about the technology that makes oofos so special: (read more here)
For recovery, it provides the support and pressure where you need it. More on that in a bit…
I brought my Oofos project pink sandals with me to Ragnar Michigan. I put them on at the end of the race and even ran across the finish line in them. Here’s me in my finisher pics wearing my Project Pink sandals!
The entire day after the race was spent in compression tights and oofos, while I went out to lunch, a festival and wine tasting!
But the REAL test for me came after my half marathon recently. I suffered through a very hilly half marathon and the bottoms of my feet were SO sore. Everything else on my body felt pretty good except for my feet. I put on compression socks to get that squeeze and they felt good while I was laying down, but walking across my house was painful. It dawned on me before we went out to dinner to put my oofos on, even just walking around the house. Seriously, it was night and day. Feet felt instant relief, all because of that foam! My feet felt so supported. No more barefoot!
I just can’t recommend oofos enough for recovery (and everyday, really). Ok now back to the cause. $10 from every purchase from the Project Pink collection goes directly to the Dana Farber Breast Cancer Foundation. It’s a win-win! There are 8 styles and a variety of colors to choose from, ranging in price from $44.95 to $59.95. Shop the collection here. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so there’s no better time to do something good for yourself and good for others!
