FitFlops A New Kind Of Footwear With A Gym Built In!
June 18th 2008
The FitFlops makers says these are “The Flip-Flop with a gym build in” !!! Can it be??
I have just tried out the new fitness FitFlop that are available in the U.S for the first time! Here is what I learned: The FitFlop originated in the UK and have been helping people get more of a work out just from walking in them and relief from lower extremities and back pain, all from a FitFlop!!! And when I tried them on, just wearing the FitFlop for 5 minutes I felt the difference!
One FitFlop wearer says: “FitFlop are absolutely incredible shoes. They feel as though they are part of your foot and you forget you have them on. I have degenerative disk disease with multiple herniated disks which causes me much pain and discomfort. I wear FitFlop the entire day and feel better all over by the days end.”
When I wore them I was SHOCKED! They had so much cushion and give. The FitFlop were so much easier on my joints and back and as I have herniated disks in my neck and back that causes me daily pain, and I too noticed less pain when wearing the FitFlop . They have an amazing foot bed with a spongy sole and a strategically comfortably placed foot strap and thong.
The claim is that FitFlops increase muscle activity in the legs and glutes (butt muscles) so it strengthens your lower extremities for overall better body strength, relief from all over pain and improved balance…not something you get from an average flip flop! Basically you wear the FitFlop as you would any other flip flop or sandal and you get actually get a lower body workout while doing your regular walking, shopping, or household chores…best part? The fitness part of this shoe is backed by tons of research and customer feedback! In addition daily wearers report being able to walk miles in them and after trying them on I truly believe you could indeed walks mile in them as they are just incredible!!!
Please if you have a free minute go to your local Macy’s and ask the shoe department for the FitFlop and experience the FitFlop for yourself! Try them on (both feet and walk around the store to experience the feel, bounce, and comfort), you too will see what everyone is raving about! Initially I was turned off by the only style that Macy’s carries as its not to my complete taste (at least to the outfits I wear) however the benefits out weigh the styles available. The benefits and wearer feedback behind the FitFlop are astonishing, from a better lower body and improved balance to pain relief! Get you FitFlop NOW!!!
