The sandals were designed to help athletes recover after time on the ice, as skating applies pressure on ankles and joints in and near a player's foot.
BRAINTREE — OOFOS and Bauer Hockey have teamed-up to launch a collection of NEXT GAME sandals that allow hockey athletes to start the recovery process off the ice.
Skating applies pressure on ankles and joints in and near a player’s foot, making recovery after ice time and during the off-season extremely important.
The NEXT GAME slides feature OOFOS’ OOfoam™ technology and patented arch support to absorb impact, reduce stress on the body and enable more natural movement. Combined, these designs help athletes recover more quickly and help prepare them for their NEXT GAME.
“As the leader in Active Recovery footwear, OOFOS is dedicated to maximizing athlete performance,” says Steve Gallo, president of OOFOS in a statement.
“There is no better feeling than pulling off skates after a tough game or training session and stepping into a pair of OOFOS. We share Bauer’s commitment to player performance and are thrilled to work together to help boost recovery between skating sessions and make it easier for hockey players to perform at their best, day after day.”
The NEXT GAME slide collection by Bauer features OOFOS proprietary OOfoam ™, which absorbs impact on a player’s foot, ankle and body. Combined with a patented footbed design, OOFOS cradle the heel and arches for the combination of soft and stable support. OOfoam™ can reportedly absorb up to 37 per cent more impact than traditional foam materials, reducing load and stress on joints, ankles and feet.
