Does anyone have or heard of these FitFlops that are supposed to give your legs a better workout when walking? Confused

You know, with summer quickly approaching, I have been looking at these too! I would love to hear if anyone has tried them! I'm fortunate to be able to wear something like this to work, so the idea of working my legs a little extra just by changing the shoes that I wore that day is really tempting... I don't know how much it counts for, but I did see them featured on Oprah one day...

Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

You saw them on Oprah? I missed that! I'm going to see if she has anything on her website and I'll let you know if I find something good. Laughing

Hmmm, they sounds a little too much like a "wonder" product to me. Well, I guess this article says it all, I found it while researching. Read up ladies! Educate before commitment!

That's a great article! Thanks! It really did answer some of my questions about them. Of course, I wouldn't use them to replace my daily workouts, I can't believe that a shoe can make THAT much of a difference. But I do have rather flat feet, so that is definitely a concern for me.

Thanks, Flowers_for_Evadne!!

Thanks a lot for the article! I wasn't going to use them to replace my workout either. My legs need a lot of help in the toning departmaent and thought they could help me out some there! I have flat feet too so I probably won't get them. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Hey there,

i only registered here to talk to you girls Wink.
It is amazing. You were talking about the fitflops in the spring of this year. Nobody knew the fitflops in Germany at that early time. Nobody but me! xD.

I am really enthusiastic (about / of? Sorry for my english :/) the fitflops, not about the minimal effects it takes on the skin or the muscles, but on the feeling of walking!

Do you have any reports, experiences or photos for me? I am building a big fan site for the fitflops. You can reach it @ www.fitness-fuss.de (also check out www.fitwear-shop.de ). The site is completly in german. I would by amused if you send me your stuff to *jenny AT fitness-fuss.de*.

My best wishes from munich
Jenny

I bought a pair and wear them quite a bit. I don't think they really do much as far as "toning", and they were really uncomfortable at first (too tight across the top of my foot), but once I broke them in they became really comfy to walk in, they stay "fit" on your feet like tennies, but let your feet breathe like sandles. I even wear them while I'm doing my eliptical. The least expensive place I found them was Bath & Body Works of all places - they had some discontinued colors that were reasonably priced. After all - you're not wearing them to make a fashion statement so you might as well get a deal Laughing

Have to join in with the people who like FitFlops. I bought them last year because I like the idea of flipflops but can't really wear them much because they have no support whatsoever. I too found them a bit to tight at first, but have worked through that. I really like the support they give and the way they engage my muscles in walking. I can't say there's any toning happening (not that I could tell under all the extra padding) but I can tell the muscles are working.

And for those it may help, I have back issues (has surgery 4 years ago and now have arthritis in my spine), have chronic left ankle instability (from repeated sprains and a fracture that separated the tendon or ligament or whatever it is that attaches to bone from the bone on the ankle), and am a big girl so if they work for me...
