5.0 out of 5 stars Most comfortable flip flops I've ever owned, July 26, 2010
By 
This review is from: FitFlop Women's Walkstar 3 Sandal (Apparel)
These were recommended to me by my alternative chiropractor, and being a physical therapist, I know how valuable it is to provide your feet with the proper support. I love my fitflops. I wear them pretty much every day including in the winter. I've even done some light hiking in the desert and in the mountains with them. I'm not sure if I "buy" all of their claims about increasing leg, calf, and gluteal muscle activity, improving posture, improving muscle tone, or simulating aspects of barefoot walking with a greater muscle load. (The scientist in me wants to read their study in full). But I do "buy" their flip flops--2 pairs so far :) I have had chronic back pain for years. I can't say that wearing these shoes has dramatically reduced the pain or even reduced it at all, but I do know that I feel better overall when wearing them, and that I notice a difference when I wear other flip flops. For the woman who commented on muscle soreness the day after--it sounds like it's delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It's very common and occurs usually 24-48 hours after activity in which one uses muscles that they have not have used in a long time. DOMS will eventually reduce in severity or go away after continued use of the muscle groups and in this case, use of the shoes. So don't be afraid to use the shoes! Your body will thank you ;)
