When I heard of Fitflops I knew I had to review a pair. The company claims that’ “Fit Flops are the combination fashion/fitness shoe craze that promises to give you a work out while you walk. They are based on flip flops, but feature new microwobbleboard technology which uses instability to increase the amount of work your legs do.
Fit Flops claim to increase muscle activation in your bottom, thigh and calf which can improve fitness and tone. They improve your posture and can reduce stress on your back, knees and ankles. There is also evidence that they can help with a variety of medical conditions including sciatica, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, and a number of foot and back problems. Of course you should consult your doctor before use if you do suffer from any medical problems.”
I was sent two pair of the Electra™ Strata, pictured above. On Pair for myself to try and one for my niece. I will give you a review from both of us.
My thoughts on them: The pair I received was a bit Blingy for my style 🙂 but that aside I thought they were very comfortable. I wore them all day from the begaining with no pain what so ever. I am not a fit person so, because of the warning from the company I was worried about how my legs would feel the next day. I didn’t notice any. Although did not then or, have since noticed firm legs and butt. I have noticed my back feel good when I wear them and I seem to be standing straighter then I was.
Unlike my Aunt, I love the “bling” of these fitflops. I am a tall person and have large feet. I love that I could find a pair of feminine shoes that are in my size. Most are either look like men’s shoes or they look like they are made for a drag queen. These have become the only shoes I wear. I also started right out wearing them all day and didn’t feel a difference in my muscles. The biggest difference I did notice was that my feet didn’t hurt at the end of the day. I like to walk a lot but my heels bother me. With these I walked more then I have in a very long time without them hurting.
