Our foray into the festival world …

photo (18)This year we are entering the world of vending for music festivals. A lot of us at Shopping Blitz are die-hard music fans, long time associated with the festival scene. So we are very excited to break our cherries at the 9th annual Mountain Jam June 6-9. Our concept is the idea of a funky general store. A place to go if in the excitement you have forgotten or need to replace some key essentials, like your tent (we have all been there), sleeping bag, footwear and especially the all-important toothbrush!Hugh (17)

I say funky because well for one it’s us. And if you have ever met us in person, and we hope you do this weekend, you would know that we are nothing if not funkified! I also say funky because a lot of the products we are bringing were made to have fun in. From novelty hats, wigs and accessories we have you covered for an all out rager! Suffice it to say we are excited and nervous and ready to get up to Hunter Mountain! If you are coming we hope to see you there. If you are on fence or are hearing about the festival for the first time check out the lineup and let the music sway you!

Brands we are featuring include Life is Good, Sanuk, Havaianas, SmartWool, Violight, Oofos, Lole, Bula, Salomon, Global Vision Eyewear & more!

Manufacturer Spotlight: OOFOS

It seems like everyday here at Shopping Blitz headquarters we are adding new brands to our repertoire. And while everything we sell is high-quality and the best of the best, every once in a while one comes across our desks that really stands out. So the Editors of The Blitz have created the Manufacturer Spotlight.

Our first spotlight is on OOFOS, truly a sandal like no other. Picture a shoe that is contoured to fit every angle of your foot. Made with OOFOAM, a combination of compound and their patented footbed design. A sandal that bends when your foot does and supports it on the way down as well! OOFOS supports the bone structure of your foot while cushioning the impact of walking at the same time. Test results show that Oofoam technology is 37% more impact absorbing than any existing EVA, the most used material in footwear. What sets OOFOS a part from the pack is its restorative component. A lot of manufacturer’s claim their sandals provide support and comfort but OOFOS actually restores your foot’s energy and provides instant recovery

Poorly designed footwear can not only make your feet hurt but cause stress and impact on other joints; hips, knees and back to name a few. For this reason and many others we at Shopping Blitz are personal fans of the OOFOS brand. We spend a lot of time on our feet just like you do, and we want a sandal that can carry us from day to night. We love that due to OOFOS’ flexibility, the sandal can move with our foot rather in opposition to it.

At Shopping Blitz we believe in testing the merchandise before we sell and almost our entire staff now owns a pair of OOFOS. It only took one test drive for us all to become hooked! From music festivals to long days at the office… a pair of OOFOS keeps your tootsies refreshed and ready for more. Because of their reasonable price they are a great choice as wedding favors! No better way to thank your bridal party and guests than with sandals that will refresh their feet from a night of dancing and celebrating.
