Product Description

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.

7 Reasons Why Everyone Is Wearing FitFlops! 1. FitFlops micro-wobbleboardTM technology, to give you a workout while you walk FitFlops uniquely tapered midsole places varying densities of EVA under your feet each time you step to challenge the support and balance muscles of the foot and leg. 2. They challenge hard-to-reach muscles more FitFlops are engineered with a multi-density midsole that stimulates your muscles more while you are wearing them. Studies have shown that FitFlops trigger increased gluteal, hamstring, thigh, and calf muscle response. 3. Every step you take in your FitFlops helps tone and trim your legs The FitFlop midsole extends the amount of time that the muscles are engaged during each step. So just by wearing a pair of FitFlops, you will get more exercise while doing nothing more than what you have always done. 4. FitFlops work your "bum" muscles more FitFlops have been clinically proven to increase the amount of time that the gluteus maximus muscle is "activated" during every step. 5. FitFlops have been shown to have a significant effect on the toning muscles of your thighs The rectus femoris muscle (one of the large muscles in your thigh) is activated for a longer period of time while walking in FitFlops. 6. Walking in FitFlops is like walking barefoot, but a little bit better According to a study at the University of Salford in Manchester, UK, the FitFlop wearer's gait is very similar to that of a barefoot walker, but the added cushion provided by the EVA midsole helps reduce joint strain and absorb shock. In fact, several FitFlop wearers have reported relief from back pain after a few days of wearing the sandals. 7. FitFlops make it easier to stay in shape Just throw them on while you're running errands, walking to work, or simply walking around your house.

    I will wear these forever!
    Susan M. Schreurs
    The best thing I have found about them is that you can wear them for a full day of walking around and not have your feet hurt at the end of the day.

    They have a lot of support and are by far the most comfortable flip flop I have worn.

    The advertising department for these shoes should be given kudos - these FitFlops sound miraculous! But reality says otherwise...these shoes have numerous design flaws. First, if you have slightly higher than normal arches, these flops will not fit your foot correctly. The reason for this is that the T-strap across the arch is made of a non-stretchy, almost grosgrain ribbon-type of heavy, woven material, and does NOT stretch to conform to higher-arched feet. Because of this, my feet kept shifting backwards in the shoe and I had trouble keeping the shoe on my foot, much less able to walk normally in them. Plus, if your feet even slightly over- or under-pronate, your feet will shift to the inside (or outside) of the shoe and you will find yourself walking on the edge of the shoe - I was constantly trying to shift my foot back to center. The strap does nothing to hold the foot in correctly - the shoe needs more support to hold to and conform with the foot. Further, the leather strap between the toes is either shoddily made or poorly designed - the edge of the leather is rough and rubbed blisters on my second toes within the first five minutes. While the shoes are very cushiony and I can see where they would help in burning calories, I spent the entire 1-mile walk stopping to shift my foot back into the shoe in its correct position, tugging on the T-strap to the correct position on the top of my arch, or putting bandaids on my new blisters. It's my opinion that exercise shoes and shoes touted as "comfortable" should not require a breaking-in period of any sort. I recommend making sure the company you buy from has a good return policy.

    These are extremely comfortable flip flops. I normally wear MBT sneakers, but with the warmer weather I wanted a pair of sandals that would give me a workout while I walked. I have not felt any difference since wearing these. When I first wore my MBT trainers, I couldn't sit down at the end of an 8 hour work day, my backside was so sore. I guess I expected the same result from these. I also have a knock off version of the MBT trainers that I bought from AVON of all places. I now sell these because people kept asking me about them. They are only $39.00 and are by Curves. Both of those shoes did way more than the fit flops. If you are looking for toning, I would put your money towards MBT's or Curves. They both offer sandal versions. If you are looking for a really comfortable pair of flip flops that improve your posture a little, then these are the shoes for you. PS - If you are a half size, order a size down.

    I wear an 8 and first bought a 7 per other people's suggestions. They were too small so I exchanged them for an 8. They are very comfortable, however, I have a narrow foot and they don't appear to hold my foot in tight enough. It feels like this will affect the ability to get a workout with them as well. I learned my lesson. Some things just need to be tried on in person.

    Verified Purchase
    I bought my first pair of FitFlops in store at Macy's. Because FitFlops don't come in half-sizes, I tried on both 7s and 8s in the different styles. I'm usually a 7.5, but in FitFlops, I'm an 8.

    The FitFlop website does explain that especially for people with high arches or wide feet they recommend going up to the next full size, while people with narrow feet or low arches should go down from what they usually wear. It would be helpful if the product description included that information, since it does make a huge difference in how the shoe will fit. Maybe the people who've had problems with the size would be happier with the product if they knew this before they ordered.

    I love the pair I bought, despite the price. Amazon's prices, particularly if you can get a size/color that's on sale, are much much better. (As I'm writing, a pair of these in black is only $30, where the same pair at Macy's was $50.) When I first wore mine, I didn't notice any difference in how it felt to walk around. And I still don't really notice when I'm wearing them, they just feel very supportive and comfortable. Going to bed at night though, my legs were/are much more tired than days when I don't wear them, and I have noticed that my pants are starting to be a bit looser in the hips and rear.

    I highly recommend FitFlops; I gave them 4 stars because of the lack of half sizes. I would give 4.5 stars, if I could. I would also advise people considering purchasing FitFlops to find a store near them (Macy's carries them) and try on a pair or two before making their purchase.
