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