Gear Of The Week: OOFOS OOrginal

OOFOS OOriginal flip-flops offer both comfort and support.

These super comfy and supportive flip-flops are great for pre- and post-race situations.

One of the main characteristics for maximalist shoes holds true for these maximalist OOFOS OOriginal flip-flops—more cushion means reduced impact on joints. The “OOfoam” cushion of these is softer than many running shoes, yet isn’t too squishy. Feet can move and stretch and even get a subtle massage from the textured footbed. Plus, they are just plain comfortable, ideal shoes for pre- and post-race situations. During warmer months, if I’m not wearing running shoes, I’m usually wearing these. They’re amazingly durable (despite a lack of outsole rubber) and you can wash them with soap and water or simply wear them in the shower. The one-piece molded construction includes built-in arch support. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes and a rainbow of eye-catching colors, OOFOS proprietary OOfoam technology is also incorporated into slides and clogs.

Price: $40
