OOFOS Sandals for Men

OOFOS makes the world’s best sandals (flip-flops). I found this brand via GORUCK – they had a very time-limited OOFOS sandal branded with the GORUCK spearhead – but they are all sold out – nd have been for quite some time. But that’s OK because you can get OOFOS Sandals from Road Runner Sports. (They don’t carry the GORUCK spearhead branded version though…) Exercise is good for the body as it helps in promoting general health. But exercise is also demanding on your joints, especially your feet and ankles. This can lead to fatigue, muscle tightness, discomfort, and soreness. To reduce pressure and demand on your feet and joints, recovery footwear is essential. Rest those weary dogs with these OOFOS sandals and flip-flops: OOFOS Sandals for Men – Overview Recovery footwear can help ease fatigue, pain, and tightness and make you feel recharged. OOFOS sandals can help you with this. They are made with proprietary OOfoam™ technology that helps absorb 37% more impact than traditional foam footwear materials.
