“We’re delighted to be partnering with OOFOS. The product will offer both support and comfort to our players post-training and post-match, enabling them to recover quicker and be ready to perform at their very best.”
- Brian O’Leary, High Performance Co-ordinator at London Irish.
Rugby and Recovery
Rugby is one of the most demanding performance sports. Training sessions and matches include running extensively as well as explosive movement and acceleration, all of which take their toll on the muscles and joints. Players in the London Irish squad need their joints and muscles to recover between training sessions and after matches in particular, to perform at their best and avoid injury during their long season.
According to Brian O’Leary, “With the stress rugby puts on the body, recovery is just as vital as the performance or training itself. A scientifically proven recovery shoe isn’t a luxury – it’s a kit essential.”
OOFOS and London Irish
In OOFOS, London Irish will have a scientifically proven recovery solution. Made from OOfoam™, OOFOS footwear absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear, to take a load off their tired, sore legs and joints. Our patented footbed design, in conjunction with OOfoam™, cradles and supports the arches, reducing stress on the body by reducing energy exertion in the ankles by up to 20%, so their legs and joints will recover faster between training sessions and matches.
