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.

    I broke my ankle twice last year and part of my physical therapy was done on a wobble mat. The midsole on these shoes are a type of wobble mat that make your ankles work to keep your balance. I can really tell a difference between my weaker ankle that has been broken and my strong ankle. You do have to work up to wearing these for an extended amount of time as your legs will tire. I recommend them to anyone who wants to work on their legs while they go about their day.

    This is my fifth pair of Fitflops. Once you have a pair; you will want more. I live in them during the summer. I even wore my suede ones some this winter indoors. I don't know if the claims to give your legs a workout are true, but they are the most comfortable shoes you will ever wear. A word of caution - go down a size. The first pair I bought were a 9 (which I wear in most shoes) but they were too big. Now the 8's work great! Don't be afraid about them being between your toes, they are no problem. I am a big fan of Fitflops. I have black, silver, beige suede, pink, and flamingo. The flamingo is beautiful!

    I've been feeling lethargic and not able to walk fast or with a spring in my step and the Fitflops have helped me walk faster and with more energy. Because of all the padding and shock absorbency they are very comfortable. I gave them three stars instead of four or five because the "gym built-in" claim is an exaggeration. Had they been described as very comfortable shoes that will help induce more walking, which can ad to your fitness level, ok, but so far, I'm not feeling a super tight butt or anything. Also, they're not the best looking shoe I've seen. I paid $60.00 plus shipping & handling which I think is a bit over priced. However, in fairness, they are very comfortable and have helped me walk faster and more comfortably. That's fair, so I do recommend them.

    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 ;)

    Size: 7 B(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    After doing some research and reading lots of reviews, I decided to purchase a pair of FitFlops. I got the Walkstar 3 version because they were available in a cute black patent leather. They looked adorable when they arrived, but when I tried them on I immediately felt pain between my toes where the thong was located. I realized that the black patent leather top had sharp edges where it attached to the toe thong. It actually looks unfinished, like there should have been another step in the production of the shoe that would have softened the transition between the patent leather top and the toe thong. There was also a scratch in the patent leather top on one of the shoes, but the real problem was the extremely sharp edges. I have seen other versions of the FitFlops that do not have this problem, so maybe it is only the Walkstar 3 that should be avoided.

    I have the black walkstar 3 and the red walkstars. I love them - this is the only shoe I can wear all day every day and not have aching feet. When I first put these on I thought they were hard, but they did soften up over time and now they are perfect. I just bought the fitflop boots and love those too. If you stand all day, especially if you stand on something hard like concrete or tile - these shoes will help cushion your feet. I took away one star because I've never experienced any sort of "fit" in the fitflop. And they are totally ugly and huge (let's face it, that's why they're comfortable). But I still love them and I will be purchasing at least one more pair for the summer.

    I have worn the same pair of FitFlops (black leather) for at least 5 years.....they were my favorite. I was upset when I realized that I had left them in a hotel room in Seattle during a recent visit. I ordered the Walkstar 3, thinking they would be the same other than the top was patent leather. They were really cute but the fit was very different than the pair that I was replacing. The only thing I can think of is that the patent leather didn't stretch and "breath" the same way that the leather ones did. The patent leather pair were not comfy and I sent them back. I will reorder the black leather.
