OOFOS For Hiking Recovery

Hiking involves walking and often walking long distances, sometimes with a heavy pack on. This means repeated impacts through your foot. Obvious, right? Well, it is very likely that the muscles and tendons under the foot will get stressed, and in some cases over-worked. 

There is nothing quite as frustrating for the long distance hiker than having painful, swollen and aching feet as this can shorten your well-planned hike or climb. Conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis can easily develop. Plantar Fasciitis is that sharp, stabbing pain at the bottom of your foot. As with all tendonitis issues, the beast can rear its ugly head sometimes out of nowhere and drag on for what feels like an eternity.

OOFOS customers have reported relief from the pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis. This is due to the increased impact absorption our shoes provide and the patented biomechanically engineered foot-bed that helps increase circulation and provides superior arch support. 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. Browse our latest styles to find the ideal pair for you.



"The foam sole does offer excellent cushioning, and the footbed has far more structure than beach flip flops, particularly in its support for the instep arch. And there’s certainly something very relaxing about pottering around barefoot in a pair of these after a shower.” - Outdoor Fitness
"I LOVE these shoes. I am a Functional Osteopath/Movement specialist and very keen sports player. I have never felt such an amazing pair of shoes. The comfort is this side of pure decadence. I'm sending my athletes and patients your way!" - Troy Bradley, Functional Osteopath

"These recovery shoes are the next best thing to a foot massage in the woods!" - Britany Robinson

   "When you return to camp after a long day on the trail, the last thing you want is to be stuck in your hiking gear for the rest of the night. There are lots of options for camp shoes, like camp slippers or simple slip-ons. But for those who really need support and recovery from a big day on their feet, we’re convinced that these recovery shoes from OOFOS are almost as good as a post-hike foot massage." - The Dyrt Magazine
