Slightly over a month ago, I succumbed to getting myself a pair of FitFlop slippers at the last Isetan sale. FitFlops as we will recall were made popular after being featured on Oprah (I base this on the internet and on the promo video they keep showing over and over) and by people who claim to have had their butts and legs toned after wearing them.
Since I got them, I’ve been wearing my FitFlops religiously at every opportunity. I only stop short of wearing them to work not because I can’t but because it would not look right with office attire 😛
So after 1 month of flipping and flopping around in them what do I think of the FitFlop?
I must say that I love it! 😛
Does the FitFlop tone the legs and bum?
I have no idea if it does to be honest. Since I only wear it a lot on weekends any toning of the legs or bum would be unnoticable. I did not feel anything in my legs at all. I’ve read reviews of people saying that their legs felt tired like they had been having a workout. I felt nothing 😛
Does the FitFlop pinch the toes since its a thong?
Not for me. When you buy a FitFlop, make sure you get the correct size and get the sales assistant to help you. You should not hear too much of a flapping noise when you walk like conventional flip flops. You will also not grip the slippers that much for some reason. If you find either of that happening, its likely to be too large.
The thong did not hurt my toes at all. Usually, I cannot wear thongs or flip flops because the bit between my big toe and second toe will hurt like crazy and blister within 10 minutes. I wore the FitFlop on shopping trips in the city and all over Penang without any problem. Love it!
Does the FitFlop help your posture?
One of the FitFlop’s selling points is that its supposed to help your posture. I don’t know if it does. I am more aware of my body and posture now that I do yoga so I do try to walk and sit straighter. I don’t know if the FitFlop helps but despite wearing it and walking everywhere for hours, my legs and back did not hurt. It might be doing something right.
Does the FitFlop offer arch support?
I have flat feet and yes, this is part of the reason I like the FitFlop. It offers me very good arch support so my legs don’t feel as tired when I’ve been walking a lot. Believe me, I walked A LOT in Penang recently. I love how it supports my feet.
Does the FitFlop feel more comfortable than Crocs?
Infinitely so due to the said arch support. Crocs does not offer any support for the arch of the foot although the foot bed is softer. I prefer the FitFlop any day… and it looks better too! 😉
So that in a nutshell is how I feel about the FitFlop slippers. At RM268 it is a very pricey pair of slippers but since it keeps my legs feeling comfy and allows me to walk for miles in them without feeling too much fatigue, I’m chalking this up as a winner! Thank goodness else it’d have been a very expensive mistake! 😉
