I am a marketing guy. I help clients broadcast their message through print, computer screen, television, social media and word of mouth. I work for many types of organizations, spanning from private schools to manufacturers of Mass Spectrometers (used in laboratories for genetic research discoveries). I try to stay away from projects that promote smoking, excessive gambling, and other forms of vice.
Occasionally, I run into a client's product that fits my lifestyle and makes me feel happier and healthier.
A couple of weeks ago, right before my much-needed vacation, I awoke with a tremendous pain in my heel which I later found out was a condition known as Plantar Fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). The condition causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move more, the pain typically decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting.
Wooden-legged pirates walk with limp much less pronounced than mine! I experienced a series of dreams that contained an ADHD-riddled Civil War surgeon with an overactive hacksaw! It was at this moment that a bright light flashed above my head and OOFOS came to mind.
You see, despite being a fashionable flip-flop, the OOFOS sandal provides the perfect recipe for happy and pain-free feet. Whether you are resting your tired dogs after a morning run or like me, hobbled with a painful foot ailment, OOFOS just may be the cure that you are searching for.
Almost immediately after putting them on, my heel felt better. After a week of nearly constant wear, I was a new man – as well as a true OOFOS believer!
