This was not my first Rodeo...
So last Christmas my mom asked me to send a list of things I might want for Christmas. I obliged and sent her a list of a few things!
One of the items on my list was a pair of Oofos!!
I had been to several races and had been seeing Oofos at some of the expos. I was intrigued.
Fast forward a few months and I was in full swing of the Run for God Couch to 5K program I lead. I invite the owners of the Asheville Fleet Feet store to come to meet with my group and discuss all things running shoes and accessories. As part of their presentation they also discussed Oofos. I was even more intrigued.
Needless to say I put them on my Christmas wish list!! Lucky me I got them!!! Thanks Mom!!
They quickly became my daily go to! They are honestly the best things I have ever put on my feet! I not only wear them after a run but I wear them each day after I get home from work. Dress shoes come off and Oofos come on!!
As you know my feet have always been the one area that has been "complicated" for me since running. I have had trouble since day 1, from wearing the wrong size shoes to wearing the wrong shoes for the terrain I was running.
I make sure now that when I put on a pair of shoes they feel right and have the support I need. I have narrow heels and high arches. My husband will give me a hard time anytime I think about switching running shoes. He knows.... Once I find something that works I need to leave well enough alone!
Oofos work for me!! When I wear them I feel as if I am getting a foot massage. For real! They make my feet feel amazing! I love Oofos!!

These Oolala Orange have been a fun addition to my shoe collection!! There are so many colors and styles to choose from too!
I love companies that give back and another thing I love about Oofos is that 3% of all OOFOS.com sales goes to breast cancer research through Project Pink.
Why Project Pink?
Duncan Finigan is a longtime member of the OOFOS Family. As the Director of Marketing, she embodies the Make yOO Better ethos of the brand. In 2014 , she was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer and they knew that they had to get behind her.
Oofos believes in contributing to making others feel better beyond product and through their actions and support offered. They also believe strongly in the power of research, which is being held back by a lack of funding. That’s why 3% of every pair
sold on OOFOS.com, will be donated to Project Pink.
This contribution goes directly towards to the critical work the Dana Farber Cancer Institute is doing in their research department to increase the survival rate of women with breast cancer around the globe.
If you don't have a pair of Oofos to throw on after your run or long day at work YOU ARE MISSING OUT!
