OOFOS, the global leader in recovery footwear has joined forces with City to become their official recovery shoe supplier.
The ground-breaking footwear brand, which has developed an innovative, pioneering and scientifically proven foam technology that accelerates recovery post performance, will provide recovery shoes for the City squad with the partnership kicking off in time to support the team’s pre-season training in Budapest this summer.
The unique properties in the OOfoam compound used in all OOFOS shoes, means an OOFOS shoe absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear. The patented footbed design, in conjunction with the OOfoam, cradles and supports the arches, reducing stress on the body by reducing energy exertion in the ankles by up to 20%.
All this works to aid the recovery process and its revolutionary technology elevates OOFOS to a scientifically proven recovery solution. The Lincoln City team will incorporate the OOahh Sport Slide Sandal into their active recovery - an evolution of the OOriginal, featuring an agile OOfoam™ strap for additional support and comfort, and bold, sporty, hand-painted graphics on the upper strap.
"I have been a user of OOFOS for a number of years now and I’ve experienced the benefits that the footwear provides for myself”, says Ross Burbeary, head of performance at Lincoln City.
“At Lincoln City Football Club, physical performance will be a huge factor towards our success this season so we have to condition players utilising an extremely demanding program.
"To allow players the best chance of turning up ready for that next training session or feel better for their next match, we have to get the other bits right - recovery, regeneration, repair. OOFOS will play a huge part in this by ensuring players can reduce the stress on their feet and joints between training and matches allowing for better recovery. We are very excited at Lincoln City to be partnering with OOFOS going in to the next season."
Giles Cundell, head of international at OOFOS, added: “Working with Lincoln City Football Club is an exciting next step for OOFOS in the UK and our mission to continue supporting professional sports leagues after partnering with London Irish last year.
"For performance sportsmen and women, OOFOS is a kit essential geared around making you feel better, and as such, we’re thrilled to partner with the Club to support players and staff with post-performance recovery.”
