OOFOS: POST RUN RECOVERY FOR YOUR FEET

Runners’ feet endure the brunt of the repetitive pounding of the sport and it is no surprise that pain and long-term injuries can occur if you don’t recover effectively. Conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Stress Fracture and Extensor Tendonitis can develop.

Nearly every runner knows the plantar fascia tendon that runs lengthwise across the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is that sharp, stabbing pain at the bottom of your foot. As with all tendonitis issues, the beast can rear its ugly head sometimes out of nowhere and drag on for what feels like an eternity.

OOFOS customers have reported relief from the pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis. This is due to the increased impact absorption OOFOS shoes provide and the patented biomechanically engineered footbed that helps increase circulation and provides superior arch support. The material flexes with your foot and the surface you are walking on simultaneously, relieving pressure and cushioning your feet.
