The OOFOS OOMG boots arrived in their own cute little carrying bag. With a lightweight black fabric and bright green lining, the boots look like fun to wear. Always the cynic, I doubted the manufacturer’s claims about the boots assisting with muscle recovery.
Where were the OOmg boots tested?
I eagerly wore these during our first frosty days in Denver, Colorado and on the snowy and cold streets in Vail village.
- OOFOS patented footbed design to “enhance the recovery process.”
- Reduces stress on feet, knees and back
- Made of durable water repellent treated fabric
- Lightweight: Roll the quilted upper down or pull it up
- Easily packable
What else we love: every purchase on OOFOS.com contributes to researching a cure for breast cancer.
How did it perform?
As usual, snowgrrl tested the boots to see if the technical specifications added to increased comfort and wearability. The manufacturer warns purchasers that the boots may run smaller than normal, and to order a size up if in doubt. Unfortunately, I did not see this and ordered my normal size (10). My toes were right at the end of the boot. The next size up would probably be a better fit.
I give the OOmg boots a high grade for comfort and shock absorption! Walking around Vail village in the boots after skiing, I felt like the sole put a bounce in my step. Instead of dragging my tired legs and feet around (after an amazing powder day, I may add), I felt like I could walk for miles in the OOmg boots. Similarly, when I walked for a few miles around Denver in the boots, I did not feel fatigued at all. The conclusion is that the OOfos technology really does work.
Room for Improvement?
The manufacturer should make the sizing of these boots more consistent with normal American/European sizing. In addition, I would feel more comfortable if the boots had a Vibram or other grippy sole. I did not feel confident approaching icy streets in these.
