I am always on the lookout for comfy shoes. Don’t get me wrong, I do love cute shoes just like every other girl out there, but for me, comfort is key when I am purchasing a new pair of shoes! As someone who deals with bunions and other foot issues, it can sometimes be extremely hard to find shoes that have both the cute and comfort factor.
I first heard about the FitFlop brand of shoes several years ago and how comfortable that they are, so when I was given the opportunity to work with them, I was excited to do so! There are some people who say that FitFlop shoes are the most comfortable in the world – after reviewing two pairs, I totally agree and am now hooked! FitFlop offers shoes for both Men and Women that are stylish and comfortable. With FitFlop, you will look and feel good all day every day!
What makes FitFlop Shoes so comfortable? There is actual science and research that goes into the making of this global brand! In fact, all of the shoes are tested at the Human Performance Lab in Calgary, the world’s leading biomechanics research centre. It is here that biomechanics test the shoes to see how they will affect your muscle activity and optimize pressure diffusion and body alignment. Wow! Can you say that about the other shoes in your closet? I highly doubt it!
FitFlops are not only built with extraordinary comfort, but they help to absorb shock and diffuse underfoot pressure thanks to their remarkable contoured footbed technology. The shoes are ultra-flexible and lightweight which makes for an exceptional wear every time! You will literally feel like you are walking on clouds, that is how soft and cushiony the footbeds of FlipFlops are!
I was able to choose two pairs of FitFlop Shoes to review for this post, and let me tell you, it was such a hard decision! I really wanted to encompass all that FitFlop has to offer, so I chose a wedge, the LULU Tortoiseshell-Print Cross Slides, and an athletic pair, the F-Sporty Überknit Sneakers in Black. I love that FitFlop offers shoes which can worn both in the office and when you are on the run! There are so many cute trendy styles, and they are continually adding new pairs to the line.
The LULU Tortoiseshell-Print Cross Slides are sandals with the X factor. They sport chunky cross-over straps with a glossy, über-chic tortoiseshell-print patent. I love that these slides are classic and elegant all while boasting the FitFlop super-cushioned midsoles. I feel that this pair of shoes could take you from morning to evening or the office to errands with no problem. It is a wardrobe must-have! From the moment that I took them out of the box, I could not believe how comfortable that they were. There was no break in time and I immediately could feel the built-in arch contour. I literally feel like I am walking on clouds when I put these shoes on my feet. They are so comfortable and my bunions do not hurt at all!
The F-Sporty Überknit Sneakers are one of FitFlop’s best-selling sneakers and rightfully so! Once you slip on these sneakers, it feels like you are taking your weight off your feet. Seriously! These are super soft and stretchy all while being breathable and boasting the full-flex Anatomicush midsoles underneath for comfort that will blow your mind. I particularly enjoy that the F-Sporty sneakers have the look of a regular sneaker with adjustable laces, but you can slip them right on! The seamless built-in arch contour along with the midsole technology once again kept my bunions from hurting and my feet are couldn’t be happier! With both the LULU Tortoiseshell-Print Cross Slides and the F-Sporty Überknit Sneakers, I did size down ½ size. I typically am an 8 ½ and went with the size 8 in both pairs of shoes after reading the reviews. Both pairs of shoes fit me like a glove! If you have been thinking about giving FitFlops a try, I highly recommend that you try them!
I personally love shoes that can be dressed up or down. As a busy mom, I need shoes that can take me from dropping the kids off at school, to the grocery store, and FitFlops are the shoes to have in my wardrobe! As you can see from my pictures, I have on several different looks, but both the LULU Tortoiseshell-Print Cross Slides and the F-Sporty Überknit Sneakers are adorable with each outfit! I especially love how you can take a simple black dress and pair with both pairs of FitFlop shoes! You need to have shoes like this in your closet!
Go the Extra Mile and National Walk to Work Day on April 5
I am also excited to announce that FitFlop has introduced their Go the Extra Mile! campaign which comes at a fantastic time since this Friday, April 5 is National Walk to Work Day! What is this awesome campaign all about? At FitFlop, their mission is to help you live a more active and fulfilled life. That is why they are encouraging us to “go the extra mile”. Did you know that taking 2000 extra steps each day could make a big impact on your life? Walking 2000 extra steps a day may sound scary, but in reality it is only about 20 minutes! I think that most of us can afford to give ourselves an extra 20 minutes each day, don’t you? Statistics show that if you walk at least 20 minutes each day you will reduce your risk of premature death by one-third. Wow! It’s a walk to work, a walk at lunch, or whenever you can fit it in! And, FitFlop shoes are the perfect shoe to help you go that extra mile in no matter where you are since they have concealed their all-day comfort technology inside stylish silhouettes. Not only will you so look good, but also feel good from leaving home to lights out with zero fuss!
On National Walk to Work Day, this April 5, Americans are encouraged to walk to work. You should walk on this day at least 30 minutes. For me, since I work from home, walking is one of my personal favorite ways to get exercise in each day. It is so refreshing and empowering! Will you join me this Friday April 5 on National Walk to Work Day? I will be sporting my super cute F-Sporty Überknit Sneakers from FitFlop and going to “extra mile” towards a more active and fulfilled life!
