How to Think About Insoles When It’s Time to Consider Them, Part 1
Let’s say you had another day that dragged on forever at the office. You come home and can barely muster up the strength to do anything with your family. You’re crabby and irritable.

Our account manager from OOFOS reached out to the owner of OOFOS, who was able to confirm that "Chromate is not in OOFOS or used in any way to treat OOFOS." I have included some additional information about OOFOS below. What are OOFOS made of? OOFOS are constructed from a unique and proprietary, closed cell foam — we named it OOfoam. You won’t find it anywhere but in a pair of OOFOS. > What makes OOfoamTM special? When you pick up a pair of OOFOS, the first thing you notice is their incredible lightness. Put them on and you can feel the difference immediately: that’s OOfoam.

When you’re not exercising, OOfoam gives your whole body the opportunity to relax, rebuild and recover. Full Story
