Guess what Emmy Award winning television chef and host, Guy Fieri and I have in common? We both wear OOFOS. In fact the recovery footwear global leader, partnered with self-designated “flip flop fanatic” Guy Fieri, because OOFOS shoes have helped his feet feel better. The company reached out to me too help my feet.
While on a trip to Hawaii, Guy discovered OOFOS shoes and became hooked on it’s comfort. OOFOS offers a proprietary OOfoam™ technology. Working long days on his feet, Guy has foot issues, especially when standing on his feet in the restaurant industry.
“Look, everybody knows that I’m a flip flop guy,” said Guy Fieri. “I’m on my feet non-stop in the kitchen, at the ranch, shootin’ DDD or wherever I am, so it’s important that they feel good. And lemme tell ya, my OOFOS deliver.”
Guy has said that with any good recipe, it’s all about the “secret ingredient” and the OOfoam™ technology, sets the brand apart from any others. These shoes absorb 37% more impact, which is key when you’re a chef standing for long periods of time. Guy’s OOFOS help him with hard surfaces like concrete film sets and wood/tile floors in the kitchen. The soft, stable and supportive shoe relieves the aches and pains of wearing traditional flip-flops.
After receiving two pairs of OOFOS shoes – navy blue mesh sneakers and flip-flops, I put on the stylish black and white leopard Women’s OOlala and declared them the perfect spring and summer sandals. As a Fodor’s Travel writer, I’ve been on my feet a lot inspecting hotels all over So Cal. I like how the sole cradles and supports my arches. This reduces energy exertion in the ankles.
I wear my navy mesh sneaker when inspecting hotel rooms, visiting the pool area, spa and other hotel amenities. When at home, I put on my OOFOS Omg mesh sneakers for a wellness walk with my dog. When I slip these on, they bring relief with their special arch support.
These shoes are also great for pregnant women or moms running around the house after little one all day long. Older moms will also enjoy these shoes for a Mother’s Day Gift this year. Exercise can be demanding on your joints, especially feet and ankles. These shoes can help prevent fatigue, muscle tightnes, pain, and soreness.
Beginning in this month, Guy will join the brand’s Project Pink initiative to help give back to cancer research. Beyond the footwear, Guy and OOFOS customer care team launched OOFOS’ Project Pink Initiative, a charitable giveback partnership with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“We are very excited to announce this partnership with Guy Fieri! His personal experience with our brand and his understanding of the benefits that our products provide to active people who are on their feet all day make this a truly authentic relationship,” said Steve Gallo, President of OOFOS.
