DO I NEED TO BREAK IN MY OOFOS?
While it may take some time to get used to the feel of our proprietary OOfoam™ and our patented footbed, OOFOS themselves need minimal to no breaking in.
OOFOS’ unique OOfoam™ material & patented footbed is designed to help you walk with your most natural gait. While the footwear itself should 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 what we developed felt the same as everything you had felt before … well, we wouldn’t really be pioneering something new, would we?!

Yes! OOFOS are completely vegan and contain no animal by-products.
CAN I WEAR SOCKS WITH MY OOFOS?
If it helps yOO feel the OO! All OOFOS are designed to be worn with or without socks, it is completely a matter of personal preference.
WILL MY OOFOS STRETCH OUT AS I WEAR THEM?
OOFOS are not designed to stretch significantly upon initial wear, and don't have a "break in" period. The OOFoam of brand new pair may feel more firm compared to older pairs, but as the footbed warms up to your unique feet you'll feel the same support and comfort you know and love. If your style and size feel uncomfortably firm or tight upon initial try on, we would suggest trying a different style or going up one half or whole size for a more comfortable fit.
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.
