OOFO's OOAHH Slide Review
By: Cary Bayless
With summer just around the corner and my Chacos already smelling to high heaven I was eager to review the OOFOS OOAHH Slide Men’s Sandals. Upon my first view of the sandals I must admit I was skeptical-they looked similar to the gardening shoes I remembered my grandfather wearing as I was growing up. The sandals are made of a thick black foam material and while they do have a little bit of tread on the bottom they looked like they would be very slippery on most surfaces. Thankfully I was most pleasantly surprised!
The main reason I choose a pair of shoes is directly correlated on the arch support of the shoe. I slipped on the OOAHHs and they fit my feet like a glove! My feet have a very high arch and because of this most sandals and shoes cause discomfort and pain when I wear them for long periods of time-thank the Lord for good insole supports! The OOAHHs instantly supported my feet and when I walk in them it almost feels like I am barefoot. In addition to a high arch I have constantly sweaty feet which makes most slip-on sandals insufferable. The OOAHHs are made with a special OOfoam that not only offers “after-sport slide” (aka they grip well to sweaty feet) but also has moisture and bacteria resistance! The OOAHHs were the first shoe I have ever worn that holds my sweaty feet snugly and comfortably!
After walking my dog around the neighborhood for an hour the shoes were just as comfortable as when I first put them on! While I would not recommend these shoes for a black-tie event or for walking on the trails they are absolutely perfect to wear around the house, on short walks, and even in the shower at the gym after a workout.
I give the OOFOS OOAHH Men’s Sandals a 5/5 rating. The comfort, support, and impressive quality of these shoes make them a necessity for anyone looking for a good casual summer sandal. If my grandfather was still alive today I would replace his gardening shoes with these OOAHHs and I can guarantee they would be all that he talked about for a long time.
