Product Description

Hot. Crossed. Fun. Our new SLING sandal is a flip flop with a twist. With an ergonomically designed open fit upper that lets toes flex free and our incredible feel-good Microwobbleboard midsole, it's equal parts groovy and utilitarian.

FITFLOPTM - GET A WORKOUT WHILE YOU WALK

FitFlopTM footwear is biomechanically engineered to help tone and tighten your leg muscles while you walk. Studies at the Centre for Human Performance at LSBU show that normal walking in FitFlopTM sandals* can help:

  • increase leg and bottom muscle activity (up to 30%)
  • absorb more shock than a normal shoe (up to 22%)
  • help realign ground force reaction closer to your joints (so you feel less ache in your hips and knees)
  • reduce foot pressure
FITFLOPTM footwear has the potential to increase muscle activity in terms of duration and workload and instigates a more active foot profile. As such, we recommend that all FITFLOPTM footwear be used progressively to avoid excessive muscle soreness.If you;
a) have any health concerns which you suspect may be aggravated by wearing them,
b) experience any discomfort as a result of wearing them,and/or
c) are pregnant, please consult a medical practitioner before starting or continuing to wearing FitFlopTM footwear.

*When compared to a control shoe. Case studies were performed on Microwobbleboard technology over a forty-eight month period by Dr David Cook, Senior Lecturer in Biomechanics, and Darren James at the Centre for Human Performance at London South Bank University (LSBU).

The first FitFlop sandal was sold in 2007, after Dr. David Cook and Darren James (biomechanists at London South Bank University LSBU) collaborated with Marcia Kilgore (an entrepreneur and multi-tasking mum) to create the world ’s first muscle-activating flip flop. Built with simple sport y looking upper straps and an ergonomically engineered Microwobbleboard midsole, the concept was a phenomenal – and global – success. So when fans began to send feedback detailing how ‘fantastic’ FitFlop™ sandals made them feel (subsequent research at Salford University uncovered our Microwobbleboard technology had remarkable underfoot-pressure diffusing and shock attenuating properties), Kilgore decided to take this technology and weave it into a full, multi-occasion footwear collection. Now boasting two patent-pending technologies: Microwobbleboard and Biomimetix midsoles, FitFlop’s goal is to create fun, energizing, beautiful shoes that – when you wear them – make you feel like you’ve got the world at your feet.

    I always thought fitflops were, frankly, ugly. The big rubber sole, the big straps. Nothing feminine about them. And then I injured my metatarsal doing yoga and had to reconsider my shoe choices. For the winter I wore Fitflop Shuvs a lot and loved them, so I decided to give the sandal a try. I ordered these because the more typical thong variety of fitflops were running large on me (I wear a 5 so can't size down) and also because the thong between the toes was hurting in all my shoes. These do have a strap between the toes, but it is entirely different as it doesn't stress the metatarsal owing to the other supportive straps (it sort of just keeps the shoe in position on your foot). The strap that runs across the top of the arch (closest to your ankle) really helps keep the shoe on your foot so you're not gripping with toes.

    I bought the blue/gray color and they are bright and cheerful and exceedingly comfortable. Surprising how many things that bright blue goes with. I will probably order another pair soon b/c I suspect I will wear nothing else all summer. Seriously. I'd say these run slightly smaller than some of the other Fitflops I've tried, but still run a bit large overall. I wear a 5 normally and these feel like a 5.5. I'd size down if you are a half.

    For me, Fitflops are like minivans. They aren't stylish, but they sure are practical/comfortable. I hated succumbing to the minivan and the fitflops, but now that I have, I would never go back.

    I had these in my basket a tad too long. They sold out. I found the mink color in my size on another site. When I went to pay, I was surprised that I could pay through Amazon. That was a bonus for me. It made me feel better about using a site that I was not familiar with. They even came in two days.

    Now for the review. I have multiple pairs of Fitflops. They work well for my feet. I have a bunion on my right foot. The sling style fits around it with no problem. Recently, I developed tendonitis in my left foot from extensive walking on a rocky surface in thin soled "skeletoes." The thick sole of the Fitflop is my saving grace as I work through physical therapy. I wear them 24/7. I generally love the Fitflop brand. Never am I disappointed in the fit or look.

    Pros:
    Style - the sling style makes them dressy enough for me to wear to work
    Sizing - I wear 8.5 US: the 39 is a great fit
    Comfort - I can walk an 8 hour day without pain/discomfort

    Cons:
    It would be nice to have them be a bit less expensive. However, you do get what you pay for.

    Quite some time ago I bought a pair of Fit Flops.At first I didn't wear them, I thought they looked bulky and thick. Then, one fine day, I put them on and found, to my surprise, that they were one of the most comfortable things I had ever put on my feet. I have a real problem with shoes...I don't like to wear them. I was the flip-flop queen. But as I grow a bit older, I find I need more support than a thin line of rubber between me and the pavement.
    I can walk all day in Fit Flops and my feet remain happy. They have a good arch and also magically make you stand up straighter. With its solid thick sole, you feel cushioned from the jolts of life in this concrete world. Also, I wear a 10 1/2 or 11, depending, and my foot is on the narrow side. I rarely find comfortable shoes that I like in my size. It's like shoes go from size 8 or 9 to trogdalyte fashion or nothing at all. I am going to purchase several more pairs of Fit Flops. I urge Fit Flop to keep designing new looks for those of us who don't wear big flowers on our shoes or shiney faux snake skin. There are some clean, simple designs now that I had not previously seen. In conclusion, if at first you hesitate, just try them on and keep on walking!

    My walking buddy, who is in her 60's and has some foot issues, practically forced me to buy a pair of these. Best sandal I've ever bought. (way better than my birkenstock, merrell, teva, chaco, dansko and crocs.) Everyone can benefit from the cushioning, especially on the heel. I got this style because I can't wear the flip-flop, strap between the big toe type. This one is very comfortable, with its strap that fits around your big toe. I got the orange- nice.
    I am a 7 and a half, and I went down to a 7 with these- perfect size. Great price for these, too. I would prefer non-leather, but the benefits and comfort of this sandal are too good to pass up this one time.

    I'm usually size 7.5 or 8 sometimes but I ordered a 7 for this one as I notice fitflops tend to be a size bigger otherwise. Size 7 still fitted me perfectly. I love the orange color and how all the straps provided support. I always love fitflops. Never went wrong with it.

    I always buy myself a pair of fitflops for the summer, I was so excited to see this interesting new style,
    It is really comfy and so interesting looking, I have an orange pair too, goes well with almost everything. I live in these all year in one way or form.

    These shoes are so comfortable. I knew they would be as I have two other pair of fit flops. The orange color caught my attention and I thought they would be perfect for summer. They are wonderful and the price was great. I'm so glad that I ordered them.
