I’m sure you’ve seen the ads for the original FitFlop. They claim:
FitFlop footwear is biomechanically engineered to help tone and tighten your leg muscles while you walk. Studies at the Centre for Human Performance at LSBU show that normal walking in FitFlop footwear* can help:
* help increase leg and bottom muscle activity (up to 30%),
* absorb more shock than a normal shoe (up to 22%),
* help realign ground force reaction closer to your joints (so you feel less ache in your hips and knees),
* reduce foot pressure and pain from heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.**
FitFlop wearers have also reported relief from plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, chronic back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, RLS (restless leg syndrome), scoliosis and degenerative disc disease.
Recently I spotted these new FitFlop Happy Gogh Clogs. I like this style better but not totally convinced I’d be able to wear these around town. Maybe.
