In the workplace, I know many of us have felt like a seasoned athlete with our knowledge and ability to manage and serve and care for others in our chosen profession. With the physical demands of the day your feet deserve relief and a chance to recover. Dr. Bronwyn Wilke, DPM, FACFAS , gives us her thoughts about why a recovery shoe is an important addition to your footwear wardrobe, “ In an era when so many professions – industry, factories, retail, healthcare, mail carriers – that require extended time on your feet, a recovery shoe is key. Oofos were originally designed for endurance athletes but they are needed by Industrial athletes as well. If you spend more than 6 hours or take more than 10,000 steps at work daily, your feet deserve relief and a chance to recover. A recovery shoe can help prevent overuse injuries from daily pounding on hard surfaces”.
