The partnership fuses Neighborhood’s edgy streetstyle with the function of OOFOS’ acclaimed OOriginal sandal. The combination of the revolutionary OOfoam™ technology, paired with Neighborhood’s signature branding on the upper strap and midsole bumpersets up a unique minimalist look that brings a new partnership to followers of Neighborhood across the UK.
Each pair of the OOFOS OORIGINAL Sport (Neighborhood SMU) is made from the brand’s proprietary OOfoam™ technology and bio-mechanically engineered footbed that absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear foams for ultimate comfort and support. Consistent with other models in OOFOS’ critically acclaimed range, the new style boasts a patented footbed design that cradles and supports the arches, aiding in the recovery process and scientifically proven to reduce stress on the body by reducing energy exertion in the ankles by up to 20%.

As minimalism and streetwear continue to trend, this limited edition sandal is designed with the high-fashion individual in mind who doesn’t want to compromise on comfort.”
