Product Description

How does the FitFlop make you fitter?Every step you take in the FitFlop helps tone and trim your legs, improve your muscle tone, increase muscle activity and circulation, improve your balance and posture, and burn calories. In fact, FitFlops are biochemically engineered to absorb shock, lessen joint strain and recreate the gait of barefoot walking-but with a powerful new built-in microwobbleboard workout-enhancing effect.

Seven Reasons Why Everyone is Wearing FitFlops

  • FitFlop midsoles incorporate patent-pending micro-wobbleboard™ technology, to give you a workout while you walk.
    Developed by Darren James and Dr David Cook at LSBU, the FitFlop's unique safely-tapered midsole places varying densities of EVA under your feet each time you step, to challenge the support and balance muscles of the foot and leg.

  • They challenge hard to reach muscles more.
    FitFlops are engineered with a multi-density midsole that stimulates your muscles more while you're wearing them. In independent University testing, FitFlops have been shown to trigger increase gluteal muscle response, increased hamstring response, increase rectus femoris (thigh) response and increased calf muscle response.

  • Every step you take in your FitFlops helps tone and trim your legs.
    Studies at Salford University by Dr. Philip Graham-Smith and Richard Jones have shown that the FitFlop midsole extends the amount of time that the slow twitch* muscles are engaged during each step (by approximately 10-12%). So just by wearing a pair of FitFlops you'll get more exercise while doing just exactly what you're normally doing.
    *slow twitch muscles produce energy by converting fats into energy aerobically

  • FitFlops work your bum muscles more.
    FitFlops have been proven to increase the amount of time that the gluteus maximus muscle is 'activated' during every single step.

  • FitFlops have been shown to have a significant effect on the toning muscles of your thighs.
    The rectus femoris muscle (one of the large muscles in the group of muscles in your thigh) is activated for a longer period of time while walking in FitFlops than while normally shod or barefoot.

  • Walking in FitFlops is like walking barefoot, but a little bit better.
    According to a study done at the University of Salford in Manchester, UK, the FitFlop wearer's gait is very similar to that of a barefoot walker, but the added cushion provided by the EVA midsole helps reduce joint strain and absorb shock. In fact, several FitFlop wearers have already reported relief from back pain after a few days of wearing them.

  • FitFlops make it easier to stay in shape. Just throw them on while you're running errands, walking to work, or working around your house. Most first-time FitFlop wearers report feeling their muscles working more, while 'fitter' wearers feedback has been more toward great comfort and cushion. One woman reported feeling like she'd had a 'bum-blasting' workout after a half an hour of FitFlop-shod walking.

Microwobbleboard™ tecnology in the FitFlop midsole
activates your leg muscles more while you walk in them.

  • Microwobbleboard™ tecnology in the FitFlop midsole activates your leg muscles more while you walk in them.

  • Foot hugging upper keeps the sole of the foot in contact with the patent pending FitFlop midsole.

  • Firm toe area promotes active push-off to maintain walking speed.

  • Multi-density midsole extends the time the leg muscles are engaged during each step.

  • Dense EVA heel strike point provides heel cushioning.

  • Non-slip outsole creates grip to maintain stability.

Customer Reviews:

  • Fit Flops
    My mom has these fit flop and said they really helped her plantar fasciitis so I got them to help mine. I'm not sure if I just got the wrong size or what but I hate them. They do not stay on my feet. When I walk the shoes actually slides off. I wish I could return them. Not sure what I will do with them. ...more info
  • LOVE 'em!!!!
    I have purchased two pair of the fit flop walkers from your site. I love them. I have worn them all summer. I will continue to wear them since I am going to Florida and will be in a warm climate. I have recommended them to my family and friends....more info

  • Great for me!!!
    They give me a work out, after wearing them all day my calves feel tight and sore the next day.... And my fiance asked the other day if I've been working out......... I said no. It's the truth just wear these shoes a couple times a week :)...more info
  • FitFlops are great!

    The FitFlop WalkStar shoes are fantastic! I really feel the difference in my legs at night after wearing the shoes all day, my legs feel tighter! They were a little sore at first but it's definitely worth it!! ...more info
  • Best sandals I have every owned
    I have really been pleased at how these fit flops give such a workout when they are worn. It is best to only wear these a few hours at first as the strap between your toes kind of hurts. After that I had them on for one full day and couldn't figure out why my legs were a little sore the next day. I am used to them now and they are great!!!!...more info
  • Firflop
    I love the shoes. They wear great. They are extremely comfortable. They are attractive and they are great for wearing on a daily basis....more info
  • great shoes
    I love my fit flops, they are cute and comfy. My only issue is that they kind of hurt my toes. The leather rubs on the top of my feet in between my toes if I wear them too long. I'm not sure if I am getting a work out wearing them, I haven't noticed anything, but they are very comfortable, especially if you are standing all day....more info
  • Poorly Made
    The shoes were poorly made. The straps were glued and not attached secure. These shoes were not worth the money. It looked as though someone ripped them and the company glued the straps back. I will not purchase from the company....more info
  • I have been sneaking these to work!
    I bought these based on many reviews on Amazon. I caught a sale and free overnight shipping and figured why not give them a try. They are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. I have been taking them to work so that I can walk during lunch and will 'accidently' leave them on afterwards. In many ways they are better than running shoes for walking around the track or the neighborhood. I have a friend that uses hers for her tredmill though I am not sure that is advisable. I have walked more in the past few weeks simply because my feet are not tired. The shoes also work your legs pretty well in the process.

  • Fit Flops are Great!
    Got my Fit Flops in record time and excellent conditions. Love the Fit Flops...so comfortable to wear and to walk in. Liked them so much I ordered another pair in a different color and plan to purchase more this Spring....more info
  • Love them
    Great product and support for feet ALL Day. Love that they are super comfortable and sporty looking. Great for 1-2 mile walks per day, the Fit Flops make you work a little bit harder. Great gift item!...more info
  • THE BEST!
    I LOVE THESE SHOES. YOU CAN WALK FOREVER. THEY LOOK GREAT, AND GO WELL WITH ALL CASUAL WEAR. I WEAR A SIZE 61/2 TO 7, WENT WITH 6. TOLD RUN LARGE, AND 6 FIT WELL.I HAVE ALL REALLY GOTTEN A SECOND COLOR, AND AM EVEN THINKING ON A THIRD PAIR. DON'T WANT TO WEAR ANTHING ELSE....more info
  • Fit Flops really exercise the feet
    I'm impressed with the way that the FitFlops really do exercise my feet and legs. I did have some difficulty with the leather circle decoration on the top of the shoe. It rubbed a raw place on my foot. That's my only complaint. Perhaps that design could be reconsidered. ...more info
  • Quick Ship Fantastic Price
    I love the fir flops. I looked all over for the best deal & found it here....more info
  • Surprise, they're comfortable!
    I read the reviews about the Fitflops and I have one friend who owns a pair. Everything I read and heard was positive, so I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. They are very comfortable..sometimes I have them on all day and don't realize it! I would like to buy another pair sometime....more info
  • Maybe I got a defective pair
    First off, the fit: I usually wear a 6.5 or 6 and the FitFlops in size 5 fit me perfectly.
    They are very comfortable and I went and bought 2 other pairs right away. But now I am thinking of returning all of them. The first one I bought was the Walkstar Classic. I have had them a little over a month and the toe area on one side is already worn down and about to break! Plus the other side has pulled out slightly so that it is longer than it used to be, making a looser fit. The other two styles I got were the sequined one and the leather one. They both have a more snug fit than the Walkstar, and not quite as comfortable.

    I think if I got a good deal I might try the Walkstar Classic again since they are so comfy, and hope they last longer than the first one I got.
    As for the workout benefits - if they even work me out a little bit I would be okay with it. As it is, I cannot tell because I never feel any soreness in my legs or buttocks no matter how long I walk in them. But to be fair, my legs are really already toned from working out with weights and walking around a lot....more info
  • FITFLOPS ARE GREAT!!
    These run about a 1/2 size larger so get them accordingly. If you're an 8.5 get an 8 etc. My sister bought me a pair for Christmas and after a day they didn't really feel like they were doing anything but boy are they COMFORTABLE. Then my husband happened to say my rear was looking great so you know it... I bought 2 more pair in different colors.LOL =0) 2 THUMBS UP FOR THE FITFLOP. MORE IF I HAD 'EM. Plus the seller I used offered free shipping to boot. Quick about it too....more info
  • Fits are no Flop!!!
    Loved these shoes in summer and now wear my new pair as around the house shoes & slippers....more info
  • Not for high arches.
    I wish that I could have felt the benefits of the FitFlop, but I could barely get my foot into it. I have high arches and the straps on the shoe are made of a very durable webbing that has no give at all. I had to return them. :( So sad....more info
  • excellent product
    I was so pleased with fitflops!! They do not cause my feet to hurt like a regular flipflop. I wear them for 8-10 hours a day and feel like I am wearing an orthopedic shoe. Also I have noticed that my upper thigh and gluteus have lost some extra inches. How wonderful!! I will buy more of these and continue to be without foot pain and also have noticed a decrease in lower back pain while walking. A+ product....more info
  • no "fit" in the flop
    The "fit" flop is nice and comfortable, but I think the name (and claims) are deceptive. I wear mine all the time because they are comfortable, but there is not any muscle toning going on aside from the usual benefits of walking....more info
  • fitflops
    I don't know about the leg toning, but these are the most comfortable shoes. I would like to purchase the pink ones, too!!!...more info
  • Stylish
    I cannot wear anything flat. Sandals used to makes my heel spurs worse. These sandals do not cause a problem for they have a nice lift and are quite sturdy. They also look good with dresses....more info
  • Fit and Easy
    These flip flops are very comfortable and make me feel a burn after wearing them for long periods of time! I like that they can make one fit while being easy and comfortable!...more info
  • very comfortable
    I love them. They have toned my legs, and they are very comfortable. I am very please. I own more than one pair. My friend loves hers too....more info
  • Comfortable casual shoe
    This shoe is comfortable, and I'm glad I purchased it. It's a much wider shoe than I'm accustomed to. I recommend ordering a size smaller than what you usually wear....more info
  • YOU HAVE TO GET YOU A PAIR!!!
    These have to be the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I have no ligaments in our ankels/knees so I have pain pretty much all of the time in my lower body. Since I have purchased my Fit Flops I don't have pain, they really work my core too and I can wear them anywhere and then just toss them in the sink and rise them off. ...more info
  • Fit Flops Flop...
    I purchased these about a month ago and while they aren't your run of the mill flip flop they aren't what I expected either. The good thing is that the sole provides much more padding and I can walk more in these then I can in regular flip flops. The sole is at least 1 inch thick. The "V" bands are loose....so as you walk they flop...because there isn't anything to hold them onto your foot snuggly.
    If they are suppose to tone that would come from the effort to keep them on my feet.

    [...]...more info
  • I don't know about 'toning the legs'...
    ...but they are an extremely comfortable flip flop. Why?? Because unlike regular flip flops (which hurt my legs and feet after extended wear) these have definite arch support. A bit pricey...yes. But your feet and legs will thank you later....more info
  • Love 'em!
    The FitFlops are comfortable, supportive shoes. These are much better than cheap, rubber flip flops due to the design. I recommend these to anyone who wants to wear casual, open-toe shoes that have some support....more info
  • Comfortable!
    If you are Nike fan you will love the flit flop. It feels just like a sneaker. Due to the fit of the sandal you don't have to worry about the irritating flip flop of a normal sandal, it stays on your foot. So you don't have to worry about dirty feet at the end of the day. If you try it you will not be disappointed. My brother wanted a pair... ...more info
  • They hurt between my toes!
    Why, oh, why, can't these shoes fit me perfectly like everyone else's? My toes have blisters after wearing them all day. It seems the thong is made out of a stiff leather. They should have made them nice and soft with some cushioning.

    On the positive side, the foot bed is VERY nice! And they make me walk faster, don't know why that is. So anyway, maybe if you're used to wearing thongs and your toes have developed callouses, you won't have any trouble with them....more info
  • excellent product
    I was so pleased with fitflops!! They do not cause my feet to hurt like a regular flipflop. I wear them for 8-10 hours a day and feel like I am wearing an orthopedic shoe. Also I have noticed that my upper thigh and gluteus have lost some extra inches. How wonderful!! I will buy more of these and continue to be without foot pain and also have noticed a decrease in lower back pain while walking. A+ product....more info
  • Great shoe at first wear...
    Bought these because I read a review stating they were great for relieving heel pain from Plantar Fasciitis . That's true but in time I developed pain in both achilles from constant wearing. So now I am dealing with two issues....more info
  • comfy
    These flip flops are super comfy. I have a very high instep so slipping them on was a bit tough at first, keep this in mind when ordering. They run large....more info
  • My mother loved this sandal!!
    This was a gift for my mother and she loved it! It was recommended by one of my wife's friends who had nothing but great things to say about the look and feel of the sandal. My mom absolutely loves it! I don't however think of it as a workout shoe. (where did that tag come from??)...more info
  • very comfortable
    I bought these sandals about a month ago and found them so comfortable that I got another pair. They are formal enough to wear to work so I am using them all the time now. I haven't noticed a change in my muscle tone but maybe by the end of the summer I will. However, I don't count on just using these to get me skinny. They are no replacement for a sensible diet and exercise.
    ...more info
  • These shoes do not run big!
    After reading all of the rave reviews, I was expecting great things from my Fitflops. First, the good. I ordered the bronze/pink. They're very attractive shoes, for flip flops. And the footbed initially seemed pretty comfortable. However, after reading several reviews that suggested ordering down a size, I ordered a 7 instead of an 8. I normally wear a 7 1/2 anyway, so I figured this wouldn't be a stretch. My foot barely fits into the shoe, lengthwise. Yet they were still comfortable walking for a couple of minutes in the grocery store and at work. Then today I tried to go for a real walk in them. I only walked about two blocks, and my feet were absolutely killing me due to the tightness of the fabric strap rubbing across the side of my foot. Also, the leather thong that goes in between your toes seems crudely finished along the edges. As a result, that area of my foot is completely blistered. It's not like I tried to walk a mile in them or anything. I walked for about 5 minutes. It's so bad, I don't see how I can possibly wear them for any distance. I'm extremely disappointed (especially because they're so cute, too!). So my suggestion would be that if you're going to try these shoes, maybe you should think again before you order a size down. They still seem like a good idea, in theory. Maybe I'll order an 8 if I feel like shelling out another $50 for sandals....more info
  • Navy WalkStar FitFlop
    I love my Fitflop sandals! They fit wonderfully, and are the most comfortable shoes that I own! I have plantar fasciitis, and walking has been very uncomfortable for me. I can walk forever in my Fitflops! These are actually my second pair of Fitflops. I also own a pair of WalkStar Fitflops in bronze. I would love to have a pair in every color! I am anxiously awaiting their clogs that are due out in November or December, 2008, so I can wear them to work!...more info
  • Comfortable but overrated
    I wear an 8 and first bought a 7 per other people's suggestions. They were too small so I exchanged them for an 8. They are very comfortable, however, I have a narrow foot and they don't appear to hold my foot in tight enough. It feels like this will affect the ability to get a workout with them as well. I learned my lesson. Some things just need to be tried on in person. ...more info
  • Fitflops Rule!
    They're definitely expensive for a rubber sandal. They have a slick marketing campaign that claims they'll tone your muscles as you walk, and a few wearers say they even reduce lower back pain. While some benefits apparently have been proven by laboratory tests, the prudent consumer will take these claims with a healthy dose of skepticism--"Your mileage may vary." They may not be styled to everyone's liking. Most women can probably find a style and color to please them, but men are limited to just one style. But all other considerations aside, Fitflops are worth buying for one simple reason--they are unbelievably comfortable. You can wear them for hours and not even be aware that you have them on. They're "better than walking barefoot."

    If you read the other reviews, you'll find a lot of conflicting information about sizing, fit, quality, durability, etc. Some reviewers say to size up; others say size down. Some say they notice a muscle toning effect; others say they don't. Some say Fitflops are well made and durable; others say they started falling apart immediately. All I can do is offer the following personal observations: Fitflops seem to run slightly large, but not exceptionally so. If you're a half-size, I recommend sizing down. My wife normally wears a 6.5, but her size 6 Walkstar fits her perfectly. A slightly larger fit is better than slightly smaller, since your heel must fit into a shallow "pocket" in the sole without extending off the back. They seem to be very well made, although I do mildly question the long-term durability of the very thin toe thong. The straps, sole and footbed all seem to be made of high-quality materials, and are very well put together. Based on a his-and-hers sample of two pairs, they have no manufacturing defects. All in all, they seem to be of extremely high quality.

    If you're looking for a highly distinctive, very lightweight, supremely comfortable and (possibly) physically beneficial sandal, and don't mind paying a fairly steep price, I highly recommend that you give a pair of Fitflops a try. ...more info

    Great everyday flipflop. Don't know about the toning, but very comfortable and good support....more info
  • Buy these!...You'll love them!
    I bought a pair of these sandals last summer, and was disappointed when I had to switch to winter-type shoes. These are the best sandals I've ever bought! I wore then all summer long and the first few days I had leg muscle fatigue, so I know my legs were getting a work-out. By the end of the summer my thighs and calves were more tone. I've worn them doing some mild hiking, yardwork, shopping and even in the mud. No matter how much I abuse them, they clean up fine and look good as new. they are well worth the money! I cannot wait for summer so I can wear them again....more info
  • Best Sandals EVER!!
    I will wear these forever! I can now bee stylish and comfy and have no foot or back pain again. No need to wear another shoe....more info
  • wonderful
    Read about these in a magazine, and after reading the reviews, bought them. One person mentioned how they were uncomfortable between the toes--I did have a bit of a rubbing the first time I wore them, but let it heal, and have been wearing them non-stop since then. Can't believe how much better my back feels, and how wonderfully they fit and stay on. Also bought a half size smaller after reading reviews, and they fit perfectly--I'm sure a half size larger would not have fit so well. I love them!!!...more info
  • comfortable
    I ordered a smaller size as suggested and the sandal JUST fits. The strap was snug, which was uncomfortable at first but has loosened up after a couple of weeks. I can't say that I'm getting a great work-out but the sole of this sandal is the most comfortable I've ever had. Thank goodness I had a coupon because I would never pay $50 for rubber sandals....more info
  • Love!
    Love these shoes! Comfy and I definitely can feel a difference in my legs and bum when I have had them on all day....more info
  • These have become my favorite sandle
    This is my second pair of fitflops. I love them, so lightweight, comfy, I wear them for hours at a time. I get lower back pain after wearing many shoes and sandles. Fitflops leave me pain free, I have worn them during our recent Disney vacation and was fine. Even talked my cousin into buying a pair and she loves them too. Currently wearing them to work,I don't know what I am going to do when it gets too cold for my fitflops anymore:( They fit well for narrow to average feet, I find friends who had problems due to wide widths. The ribbon is not elastic. I highly recommend these and can't wait to buy my third pair!...more info
  • FitFlop
    I definitely recommend ordering a size down from your usual size. They are so comfortable and the bronze color looks great. It does feel like they tone your legs. We'll see. ...more info
  • Love them!!!!
    While I'm not sure if they're actually making me use any more muscles, I think that these are the most comfortable flip flops I've ever worn, I just ordered a pair in black!...more info
