The Beauty Addict Asks: Do you like Fitflop?

Let me share to you the wonderful gift I received from my sister yesterday


Fitflop Rebel (Chocolate)

This is my second pair from the brand. The first was a gift from my hubby.


I wearing a Fitflop Pietra (Bronze) with my baby Liam at the Eastwood Mall Breastfeeding Station

Get a workout while you walk. For a person who has very limited time for herself and could hardly get an exercise for a day, of course I will be hooked with that slogan.

According to FitFlop: It is biomechanically engineered to help tone and tighten your leg muscles while you walk in them. Studies at the Centre for Human Performance at LSBU show that normal walking in FitFlop sandals can help:
  • help increase leg and bottom muscle activity (up to 30%). (so you feel less ache in your hips and knees) ,
  • absorb more shock than a normal shoe (up to 22%),
  • help realign ground force reaction closer to your joints,
  • reduce foot pressure and pain from heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
Honestly, I'm a bit hesitant because why would I spend that much for a pair of slippers? But a lot of users I know swear by it. I got intrigued so I always check it whenever we go to the mall. Maybe my hubby got curious why I was spending a lot of time inside a store scrutinizing the display of Fitflops so he bought me one :)

I've been using my Bronze Pietra for over a month now and I still don't see a huge difference. But you know what? It has become my favorite pair. Aside from being stylish, they look firm yet so comfortable when used. The straps don't hurt. Never had blisters even on the first day of usage. I can last all day walking inside a mall carrying my 7 kilo baby with it. Maybe I should start using it religiously to feel the benefits?

Whatever...I'll keep using it and I'm so excited to wear my one already. I just wish they come up with more girly designs soon.

Do you own one? What's your verdict?
