Recovery footwear is the new black

We’re in the midst of race season now, and most of us are au fait with all the gear we need to take along (banana for before, warm top for after, energy gels, baby wipes…) but may we suggest you add another little gem to your list? These clever flipflips by OOFOS look like ordinary footwear, but when you put them on, you’re starting your recovery, just by walking! The smart design cradles your arches, reducing the pressure on sore feet, knees and back, so they’re ideal straight after a long-distance race. We’ve been testing them out at Running for a few months now and love how they feel. They come in two different styles and myriad colours from £40.
