fitflop Fitflop Slippers: Cheaper to buy in Singapore

Note: this post was accurate at time of writing. FitFlop Malaysia has since dropped their prices so its now cheaper to purchase locally in Malaysia.

If you’re from Malaysia and are wanting to purchase the FitFlop slippers in this region, try to get it from Singapore.

I got my 2nd pair (Oasis) from Isetan at Wisma Atria on Orchard Rd. for about S$99.90 (RM230 at 2.3 exchange rate). This one with the suede thong retails in KL for RM318 or thereabouts which is MUCH more expensive.

The Pietra which I was lusting after previously is S$119.90 (RM276 at 2.3 exchange rate) compared to RM318+ but I did not get it because it did not fit me well. Ditto the Electra (with sequins) – I can’t wear that one. Different FitFlop designs fit differently, I’ve found.

My old Walkstar III in bronze retails at S$109.90 and I paid RM288 for it. I wasn’t sure if I wanted the original Walkstar with the red thong which was just going for S$89.90 (RM268 here). Perhaps I might anyway icon razz Fitflop Slippers: Cheaper to buy in Singapore

There was a good selection of designs and sizes at Isetan Wisma Atria especially for my size (Size 3) which is so hard to get hold of here. They also have men’s and children FitFlops.

Only thing is that although the sales are on, there were no sales on the FitFlop slippers. If you fly into Singapore however, you can claim your GST refund with minimum purchase of S$100 which can add up to quite a bit if you do a lot of shopping.

So that makes your slippers cheaper right? icon razz Fitflop Slippers: Cheaper to buy in Singapore

Fitflops aren’t cheap but I like them and if you’d like a pair of this expensive flip flops in this region, try to get them from Singapore. You will still feel the pinch but it will be less painful icon biggrin Fitflop Slippers: Cheaper to buy in Singapore

Note: My recommendation is for those intending to shop in the South East Asia region. Fitflops appear to be much cheaper in the USA and UK

Hi Paris. I’ve never tried Fitflops before. Do you think they are okay to wear for an entire day of shopping? I’m hoping for footwear that won’t kill my feet.. ;-)

They work fine for me and are in fact my favorite pair of slippers ever. But people have complained of aching legs after wearing them for a whole day as its supposed to exercise your feet. You can read my earlier review on FitFlops here.

I’ve seen these around, you’re right, they are quite pricey! I’d love to give them a try! :D

Be careful – you might not want to take them off!

I was at Isetan, KLCC just now and tried the Fitflop Pietra – and like you a size 3. It did not fit me well too. I think the front piece goes up too high on my feet making it a bit uncomfortable as I walk. But I love the design though.

ParisB June 20, 2010 at 9:55 am

Yup! I found the top part a bit too wide and I was in between sizes so passed. A friend wears it very well and it does look super pretty on the feet

Hey PB, its a random question and is non makeup related. Do u think i can still claim my GST refund for last 6 to 8 months purchase or even up to a year because i sill havent got a chance to fly out of the country. I’m wondering if there are any reclaiming due dates because it really adds up to quite a lot of money since i have purchases on two single receipts which adds up to thousands.

Hi Mesmie you could try reading the info on this link and see if it helps. http://www.customs.gov.sg/leftNav/trav/Tourist+Refund+Scheme.htm As far as I know the time limit is 2-3 months from date of purchase.

*waggles finger at PB* I realise all my big (read: expensive!) purchases are usually attributed in some way to you! <3 the pair I got, especially after getting used to it (no aches anymore!)

it IS pricey for a pair of 'slippers', but when you think about it they're pretty well made, so can be justified! :D (ah heck, think long enough and everything can be justified…heehee…)

Gosh!!! I didn’t had the time to find fit flops. I only had the chance to go to Robinsons and most sizes are out. Sadness… You know PB I saw from the fitflop website that they have a new one and it’s designed by Anna Sui!!! They are a total beauty! Got me drooling. Goshh… :P

u could check out some sprees online for Fitflop, they are real definitely, but bulk purchase is so much cheaper.
I got my electra pewter for only $65
Pietra for $70

Now eyeing on Riata, but unfortunately this is not available in the spree

Not really cheap if you buy in Singapore or US. I just came back from both country. In US the dept.store (NorthStorm) is selling US 59.95 excluding tax and Singapore is selling from 89 – 199.00 x exchange rate 2.4. In our own country the distributor are selling from 156 – 399.00 and if buy from Parkson during voucher day you get RM10.00 free. Please support our local distributor to boost up the economy.

Not sure about the prices in US stores but its definitely cheaper buying online in the USA at present exchange rate. I have found it a little cheaper in the UK as well based on prices in store and again, based on current exchange. How cheap/expensive it is by comparison overseas is usually determined by the exchange rate, so naturally, if the exchange rate rises, so will the prices, therefore reducing the savings. I think the example prices in my post speaks for itself – there are savings buying in Singapore at the time the post was written and we happen to be there, its worthwhile picking it up. It of course doesn’t make sense to make a trip intentionally for this purpose. However, the prices locally should have come down as we previously reported so if it has, then it might be cheaper here. I agree to support our local distributors, but I also am out for a bargain myself! :)
