Where are OOFOS made?

OOFOS has two factories, one in South Korea and one in Vietnam.

 

SIZE AND FIT

 

What width do OOFOS come in?

With the exception of our OOlala, all OOFOS come in a medium unisex width. However, there are specific styles that we suggest for people that tend to have wider or narrow feet. 

For people that have a wider set foot we highly recommend our the OOriginal and OOriginal Sport thong, or the OOahh Sport Flex slide sandals. The strap on our OOahh Sport Flex features an adjustable Velcro upper which accommodates wide or narrow feet, as well as those with high insteps and arches.

If you tend to have a narrower foot, we suggest the OOlala thong as the foot bed shape is slightly narrower.

 

What is the heel to toe drop in OOFOS?

The heel-to-toe drop in all OOFOS is 6mm, but due to the heel cup and elevated arch in our patented footbed design, the traditional approach to measuring drop does not translate from performance footwear.

 

Do OOFOS come in half sizes?

OOFOS OOriginal, OOahh, OOlala & OOcloog styles come in whole sizes only.

We suggest that woman who wear a ½ size, size up and men who wear a ½ size, size down. This is just a general suggestion from what we find works for most people that wear our footwear.

OOFOS began introducing ½ sizes with our OOmg eeZee and are rolling it out across the complete OOmg line of footwear (mesh, fibre, eeZee & boot/bootie).  There may be some colorways still only offered in whole-sizes at the moment, but by summer 2021, all OOmg product lines/colors/styles will have ½ sizes available.

OTHER FAQ's

 

Where can I purchase OOFOS?

We have a store locator where you can do a search for a location closest to you. Not all locations will have a full selection of every style and color so we suggest you call ahead if you are looking for a specific style. 

 

How do I know if I am buying from one of your authorized sellers?

You can find any of our verified sellers directly on our website by using our store locator. 

If you are shopping on Amazon, the only authorized dealers are “Jackrabbit” and “Recovery Footwear”, but they should be selling within USA only. ALL other Amazon dealers are unauthorized and thus not eligible for exchanges, returns or warranties through OOFOS.

Any shoes purchased from unauthorized sellers or social commerce websites (EBAY, Poshmark, etc.) are not eligible for exchanges, returns or warranties through OOFOS.

 

Do I need to break in my OOFOS?

OOFOS’ unique OOfoam™ material & patented footbed is designed to help you walk with your most natural gait. While the footwear itself does not need breaking in, it may take you a few minutes moving in the OOFOS to settle into this new sensation underfoot – and that’s a good thing! Recovery footwear has a different purpose than active footwear. If we developed something you had felt before … well, we wouldn’t really be pioneering something new, would we?!

If you do experience any break-in sensation that you are having trouble adapting to or finding relief from, please reach out to our Customer Care team at info@oofos.ca and they will be happy to assist in ensuring you have a proper fit & style, or finding another solution.

 

How do I clean and care for my OOFOS?

Keeping your OOFOS looking good is easy. OOfoam™ is a closed cell foam, so it doesn’t hold in any moisture or bacteria and minimizes odor so you can wear them anywhere and clean if they get dirty.

All OOFOS can be washed in cold water with mild soap. Our OOmg shoes can be machine washed on the gentle cycle using cold water. Simply air dry in a cool, shady spot. You can also use disinfectant wipes to clean the soles.

Do not put your OOFOS in the dryer as exposing OOFOS to high heat or prolonged direct sunlight will cause the material to shrink.

 

How long do OOFOS last?

OOfoam™ support and cushioning lasts for the life of the shoe. OOFOS don’t lose form as quickly as typical EVA foams. Wear tests show that OOfoam™ experiences lower abrasion because it moves with the ground and your foot at the same time. It is working “with” hard surfaces rather than against them.

We recommend replacing your OOFOS approximately as often as you replace your running shoes, but that is dependent on how often you wear them. Let the tread be your guide. We do find that most customers will change out their OOFOS around every 6-8 months or when the treads on the bottom of the shoe start to wear down

 

Will OOFOS be good for the medical condition that I have?

While we can't give anyone concrete medical advice on whether our shoes will work for them, we have heard a lot of great feedback that our shoes have help customers with a variety of aches, pains & issues.

We recommend doing your research - there is a lot of anecdotal evidence, both via reviews and testimonials, and you should also check with your doctor or podiatrist to see if they suggest trying OOFOS for your particular condition.

 

Can I wear my OOFOS for working out?

OOFOS are great for casual walking and post-workout recovery. However, we do not recommend OOFOS footwear for exercise-specific activities.

 

Are OOFOS slip resistant?

OOFOS are not certified as slip resistant.

 

What is the difference between the Oomg Mesh, OOmg Fibre and OOmg eeZee?

All OOmg styles start with the same patented OOfoam™ footbed design, so you get a consistent form and function across all lines.  The uppers, however, provide a unique fit and feel to carry you through the year.

  • Mesh: Our breathable 4-way stretch mesh fabric introduces a new level of comfort and convenience into your everyday routine.
  • Fibre: Made with our Fibreflex™ fabric, these offer a durable, yet breathable feel that perfectly mold to the foot.
  • eeZee:A different take on the classic, made with a unique 4-way stretch woven canvas-like technology, these shoes contour the entire foot.

 

Are the OOmg Boots/Booties waterproof?

While the upper part of the OOmg Boot and Bootie are insulated and water resistant, neither are waterproof.

 

Why do OOFOS have a unique scent?

The aroma you smell when you open a new pair of OOFOS comes from our freshly-made OOfoam™ - which gets contained in the packaging during assembly. OOFOS do not contain any toxic materials or chemicals. Simply place them outside or near some fresh air and the scent should dissipate. You can also clean your OOFOS in cold water with mild soap or throw them in the washing machine (no dryer – air dry) to resolve the scent. 

 

Do OOFOS contain harsh chemicals, dyes or latex?

No, when designing OOFOS, our first priorities are safety and quality. Unlike cheap flip-flops typically constructed of EVA foam, OOFOS footwear is made using a patented, closed cell foam that has non-toxic properties. OOFOS are also painted with non-toxic paints. OOFOS footwear does not contain latex, so those with latex sensitivity can safely wear any of our styles. You can feel good wearing OOFOS next to your skin.

 

How do OOFOS footwear help with recovery?

Most people are wearing shoes that tell their feet where to move. This is because these shoes are very structured. Athletic shoes can be stiff as they quite often are geared for stability. Orthotics are designed to do the same thing. OOFOS shoes are about the "feel" and helping your feet and you to feel better! Our patented foot-bed design offers a lot of support and the OOfoam provides 37% more shock absorption than any other materials found in footwear. This translates to giving the feet and your body relief from the effects of weight bearing and thus helps the wearer recover from the physical demands of their activity, whether it be from sports, working or being on their feet all day.
