About Plantar Fasciitis


If you suffer from heel pain it could be that you have Plantar Fasciitis, the medical term for a common foot condition that causes sharp pain in the heel and bottom of the foot. Sufferers report that pain is usually most severe in the morning and can occur in one or both feet. 

The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes. The causes for plantar fasciitis are not completely understood. However an increase in exercise, particularly running and standing for a long time on hard surfaces are known to be risk factors. 
OOFOS customers have reported relief from the pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis and the bone spurs that can accompany this condition. This is due to the increased impact absorption our shoes provide and the patented biomechanically engineered footbed that helps increase circulation and provides superior arch support. OOFOS shoes allow your foot to move on all planes and articulate the way nature intended. The material flexes with your foot and the surface you are walking on simultaneously, relieving pressure and cushioning your feet. 
OOFOS recovery footwear is available for men and women.

 "Having suffered numerous bouts of plantar fasciitis in the past, due to rather a lot of high impact running, I now view my feet wearily and partly with suspicion. Although I do rotate my trainers and mix up my runs with lower impact alternatives in the gym, there's always that niggle in the back of my mind that I could be doing more to support my feet. Then, I discovered OOFOS. I instantly noticed the difference as soon as I slipped them on. Surprisingly comfortable, my feet instantly felt supported, the bed of the shoe rising up to meet my foot arches and almost snuggling against them. Literally I put them on and have now had trouble finding the willpower to take them off again. Popping on my usual slippers afterwards, the difference is astounding – it's amazing how flat other shoes feel once you have enjoyed the support of OOFOS. I am very much looking forward to wearing my pair more (especially in the run up to my next half marathon) to give my tootsies some very well deserved ‘me time'. Squidgy and comfortable, these are a winner for me!" Katie Scott - Personal Trainer Magazine  

"I have to tell you that OOFOS has changed my life! I have had plantar fasciitis for 7 years, tried every orthotic, physio, frozen water bottle, golf balls, tennis balls, taping my feet etc......for 7 YEARS!!! I bought my first pair of OOFOS clogs 6 days ago, and have had the first 6 days pain free in 7 years! This has changed my life! I sound like a crazy person, but after going home from a busy nursing shift on my feet, I would get home and not be able to stand., which is a big problem when I need to cook dinner for my kids!!! I now get home, no pain, energy to cook dinner, do housework and take the Great Dane for a walk! I am living almost pain free for the first time in 7 years! Thank you OOFOS!!! I just went and  and bought a pair of the thongs today as well as these are the only shoes I will wear!!!" Heidi Cooper 

 "When I got home from golf yesterday I tried my new OOFOS thongs – So comfortable, like waking on air! They are already providing much needed relief from the pain and discomfort Plantar Fasciitis is causing me in my heels." Cheri Quinn 

 "I'm obsessed with my OOFOS. I'm spreading the word. I have a heel spur and inflammation and they are my saving grace at the moment." Donna Downey 

"My first pair arrived last week. Currently suffering from plantar fasciitis and I can honestly say this is the most comfortable footwear I have worn! Better than fit flops. Will be buying another colour to have an indoor and outdoor pair!" Rhona Guild 

"I work in a running shop and suffer from Plantar fasciitis. I'm on my feet all day and am constantly in pain. I was given a pair of Oofos from my Oofos rep when I received my first order. I must say they looked comfortable and was keen to try them on. They are very spongy, comfortable and OMG...oodness they felt amazing! I find they comfort and support my feet in all of the right places. I take them with me everywhere and they are there by my bed to step into first thing. Something else I really like is that I can quickly wash them when I get home from work so I can wear them around the house. They certainly do what they say! Thank you Oofos!" Eve Filmer
